I am thinking of buying an F-250 with the PowerStroke 6.7L Diesel. Supplies are tight right now and I hear you have to pretty much pay list price. Does anyone have any experience to share with this vehicle?

It's a hard pass on any Ford. Too many "computer" and "sensor" issues that the service department can't figure out and the factory doesn't want to fix...

Those should be the easiest to figure out…

Not for Ford. We went 5 rounds with a Ford and to fight them to get it declared a lemon.

Nothing more fun than being on the expressway at 70 MPH and have the engine shut down due to a computer error. Truck spent more time in the shop than the road.

Not many options for a heavy duty truck.

Didn't buy a Ford, but that sounds about right. You're going to be on a wait list if you are picky about options/colors. My GM truck was an order someone canceled, or i would be waiting well into next year.

Did you get a discount off sticker?

Aren’t those the models that are highly susceptible to the “death wobble?” Ford says it’s just the steering stabilizer but many people report that’s not the fix from what I’ve seen.

I would probably not recommend a new Ford - Ford is turning in to a wannabe Tesla because they realized being an “old fashioned” car company wasn’t working out but they have always miserably failed at technology.

Death wobble is only on 4x4s it's an issue with the transfer case. Fords known about it for over a decade and made zero effort to solve it.

If you want a Heavy Duty truck you only have a few choices.

Nisan Titan with Cummins is pretty good.

Don’t buy any vehicle build by a Union. Traded a GM in for a Nissan Titan which has more parts being made in USA than GM.

I’m considering the Titan. What is the payload on the diesel version?

Nissan no longer has a diesel option.

I wouldn't buy any Ford or GM product (and I work off a GM contract). I think the only US manufacture that hasn't gone completely woke so far is Dodge but i could be wrong.

Op asked about a truck not a golf cart.

LOL. BMW X5 35d twin turbo diesel is about 6,000# empty weight, If that’s your ‘golf cart’ that’s some cart.

Yes, and it's got a GVWR of 6,500lbs, meaning you can legally put like 4 big guys and their golf clubs in it, and that's it. Payload maxed.

GuyWhite -2 points ago +1 / -3

LOL. Legally? I don’t have to be weighed driving a highway cruiser. The heaviest ‘payload’ that I put in it is bikes and baggage for two months in Florida annually. I thought I-95 meant that the speed limit was 95.

Can you haul a 15,000 lb trailer and 2,000 lbs of gear with that?

-5
GuyWhite -5 points ago +1 / -6

Nope. We figured long ago that a luxury highway cruiser instead of a wannabe motorhome buys a lot of nights at nice hotels.

If you want to haul then get a CDL and be an owner-operator wage slave. I’ve been retired since 1995 when I was 47 y.o. Otay Zoomer?. Effin’ kidz. FO
