What are the H.P. and torque numbers now? When I bought my 2011 F250 with the 6.7 Diesel, the numbers were at .... 400 H.P. and 800 ft. lbs. of torque.

Excessive payload capacity is a wonderful thing

In 2015 Ford introduced the "Scorpion II" diesel engine. They installed some "durability issue parts" internally, a new turbo system, improved injectors and upped the HP/torque to 440 HP/860 FtLb of torque.

In 2017, it's essentially the same engine/turbo with a computer flash to up the HP/torque to 440 HP/925 FtLb of torque.

well I hate to say, but I walked away from the deal, not that I wanted to either, I could afford the monthly payments, but I live in Virginia Beach Va and I pooped a brick when I called the city and inquired about the personal property tax, first year being anywhere from $2200 to $2600. I could handle the insurance increase, that was understandable, but the PPT I feel is unreasonable. Owning a nice truck for pleasure use and having to upwards of 10 to 13K in personal property tax over the first 5 years of ownership was just too much for me to swallow.

We are back in our F150 and will be back looking for a 10 year or older one to buy that hopefully won't cost so much in property tax & would not be a daily driver. . . .

Thanks for your help everone

This is one of my struggles with buying a newer truck. Taxes and licensing are "out of control".

I moved from a F150 gasser to a F250 TD and the towing is day and night. Many have posted the brakes and suspension are heavier sheer power is amazing...
