BINGO!!! I like the power alot, but with all the emissions stuff and the big 3 fighting to have the most power, the mileage and reliability is suffering.
An old cummins can put down the power and get the mileaga, but it has no emissions nor is it quiet.
I will keep my old cummins that puts down a pretty good amount of torque for a long time. I will admit, it would be nice if it were quiet and had a newer cab sometimes. But, usually I use my truck as a truck and it does that well.
How many break downs does everyone think the new ford will have?
