Cons: Fuel Mileage
Advice: Suggest the electric interim cab heater option. Engine doesn't warm too quicklyI recently traded in my '99 F-350 diesel dually on a new 09 truck of the same model description. The '99 diesel was used to carry a large camper. The powerband on that truck came on like a tugboat with ample power for any task; as the RPMs built, the power would come on smoothly and slowly build. The 2009 diesel comes on like a tugboat on steroids. What a profound difference in performance. The turbos on the new engine make all the difference in the world. almost feels like a sports car. This is a well thought out design and a truck worth owning.
