This truck is a beast! I love it!!!! Great features and power for a diesel.
Completely happy with the truck. Gas mileage as mentioned by others is around 15mpg with a combination of city and freeway. Towing no problem, don't even know my trailer (8000 lbs.) is even back there and the fuel mileage is the same. Plenty of room! Back seat area is huge. Wish there was some power outlets in the back for the kids stuff (It's there on the 2008) but overall the fit and finish is good (not up to european cars, but good). It rides smooth and is very quiet can't hear the diesel once moving. I have the short bed and it's a bear to park though. Considered a long bed and I'm very happy that I didn't get the extra length, especially when trying to get in any parking stall. I have the Lariat package, leather, Captians Seats, wood grain, etc. Very basic for the upgrade, but it's a truck and seems just stylish enough for my tastes. Power adjustable pedals that I though would be an assume feature have been so, so. Really no consernable difference for my height (6'2") when I adjust them up or down. I also have the built in brake controller and the tow/haul transmisson. These are excellent features and would not pass this up if your doing any towing. 23,000 miles so far and no problems.
My 2008 6.4 litre Diesel has the poorest milage of all Ford Diesels thus far. Does not make a lot of sense to be going backwards. You pay more for diesel, more for fuel than gas, more for upkeep, and milage is less it seems than gas. What incentive is to have a diesel now. Mine has 21,000 and I get 11-12 mpg daily. 9 mpg towing my horse trailer. Empty and keeping it below 70 I get 14 mpg. The last 6.0 litre I got 16-17 mpg. The last 7.3 litre I got around 20 mpg. That to me is going backwards. I am paying more for less. The comfort is great and truck looks great as it should for $60k. Not many more toys could be put on it. But when it does it's regeneration (cleaning exhaust filter) that takes about 12 miles and does it around every 100-150 miles and seams to use about a 1/8 of tank of fuel is not impressive as it whines up and down during the process. I have had two 7.3's. two 6.0's and now this 6.4. This will probably be my last diesel and Ford if they don't do something drastic. Come on guys, we should being going forward.
