    Has anybody bought one of the new F250 diesels? I am considering that truck and the Ram 2500 Megacab. If you have the new Ford, how do you like it?

    Guy at work has a 2016, and another with a 2015. 6.7 seems to be better than the previous 2 PSDs. They were ****. Both like theirs. No maint issues yet. Doubt you'll find many valid reviews on a 2017 model truck. Most will be emotional, since they just dropped $60k+ on a vehicle. Emotional good, or emotional bad.

    I have not seen a 2017 in either model. However, before last July I had driven Ford F350 crewcabs for 25 years. Needed to buy a new truck last year and looked seriously at both Ford and Dodge. I ended up getting at crew cab Ram 2500...much more truck than my 2 previous Fords. Our opinion was, hands down the Dodge was the better value. I got a lot more options for $5k less, and I'm signed up with Ford's X-Plan pricing. I now have almost 16k miles on the rig and have not regretted the change one time. Your experience my be different, but that's what I can relay from personal experience.
