Every gas motor I have messed with or drove has been weak. Took an f-250 and hooked up to a small trailer hauling a john deere gator. I went to go up small hills doing 55 and the damn thing kept downshifting. It had to strain like hell when most diesel motors wouldn't have even have strained with a heavy load. Now, I don't know if this is true about all gas motors. I'm just saying the ones I have been around I didn't like. Most all diesels also get more than 14 mpg.

I definitely agree 100%. I can't stand the grille in all chrome, but with the outer part of the grille color matched, it looks alot better.

The interior, can go back to the year 4,634.

I really like how the new SD has the half fender, and how the hood comes over the top, just like the Pre-79 trucks did.

you cant compair a diesel to a gasser, thats apples and oranges. the diesel option costs 10 grand and the cost to maintain them are triple that of a gas motor. the diesels are great but they are not right for everybody. ive driven several SD's with the different motor options, PSD, 5.4, 6.2 and the V10 and while the 5.4 isnt a huge powerhouse in those trucks they still put down more than enough power to tow with reliably and the V10 is a torque monster. the new 6.2 gasser is just awesome, defiantly no lack in power there. dont get me wrong, id love to have a powerstroke but unless you tow regularly or use them for work they arent worth it IMO.

my uncle used to have an f250 with a 5.4, he would always take off in 2nd gear and always ended up speeding, so i know the 5.4 defiantly had enough power, it was just a gas hog and thats why he got rid of it

Yeah, like $60,000

With that money I would get a 2011 Ford Mustang Shelby

i love it! door panels do suck and the seats also look like my old seats that will rips after 100k miles. I would go with cloth nothing else in that truck. And how do you guys not love the chrome?! it beautiful! image looking in your rear view mirror and see the big ass ford symbol right there with shine all around it. or would you rather see a cheep black plastic grill with a cheep plastic chevy looking front end? ford in my opinion did a great job. If you want a plastic truck with no chrome well the ranger is still on the lots and chevy is just around the corner

nah. the new front end is too overdone and the 400 square feet of chrome on top of it just makes it look ridiculous.

My point exactly. Too much plastic and chrome ruins trucks. Too much platic made the 1st Chevy Avalanche look bad. I also hate when people try to put a lot of walmart chrome accessories on their truck, like door handle covers or fuel door covers.
