PostSubject: Is the buzz true about the 6.0L?   January 4th 2011, 11:18 pm

Looking at the current used car market for 2000-2009 Ford super duty pick-ups, (because I was bored....lol...) I have noticed that about 95% of all of them are the 6.0L Diesel.... today, out of 277 listings, I found TWO 7.3L, seven 5.4L and the rest were the 6.0L.

Now I have heard some negative things about this motor from a lot of people, but the influx in them being all for sale would indicate to me there is some validity here...

Is the buzz true? Is the 6.0L turbo Diesel in the Ford Super Duty trucks really as bad as they say it is?

Some battle with flare, Some beg you to stare,
Some roar like a Bear, Or think that it's rare,
But I say, 'Who cares?' My Jeep's over there,
It may not have flare, but it will drive right over theirs!

It kind of depends on what you mean by bad.... if you mean that it was the worst engine ford ever put in the SD? then yes you would be correct Cool

If I were in the market for an SD I would be looking at one with the 6.4

If you are willing to do some upgrades, the 6.0 isn't a terrible engine. But then, if your buying a new to you truck, why buy one that needs upgrades to make it reliable, and not a time bomb.

Amen. Why would I want a truck that will need 3K+ in upgrades just to be as reliable as all the other trucks out there? The 6.0 is JUNK, plain and simple.

the # of 6.4's out there is pretty substantial, as well as the impressive power that they can make with ease

Navistar took most everything that was wrong with the 6.0 and improved upon it 10x

I agree with the concensus here. The 6.0 is not a good motor!! But thankfully the motor company felt nice enough to circle the problem on the front and highlight with blue!!! lol

Might be, but an engine that was used for 15+years and had almost no problems holds a lot more weight then one thats been out for 3. And the 6.4 doesnt hold a snowballs chance in hell to the 7.3L in terms of # of units produced. Just my thoughts.
