Been reading the discussions on the V10 and the diesel and found a lot of good info. Yesterday, the family and I went to our Ford dealer to test the F250 6.0 diesel. Unbelievable truck. I need something to replace my ****** that's struggling pulling my 24' TT (about 6500-7000 pounds) when we're not on flatlands. Anyway, the sales guy suggested we look at the V10 in addition to the diesel given our needs. With the current promotion Ford is offering, I can get the V10 for just about $7K less than the diesel. The HP on the V10 is 310@4250 compared to what I'm driving now at 285@5200. And the torque is 425@3250 compared to my present 325@4000. I'm sure you all know the numbers on the 6.0 diesel. We probably drive 12-15K miles a year, and tow the trailer about 10-15 times a year max, and never more than 300 miles round trip. I just can't seem to justify the extra $7K for the diesel given my situation, but thought that some of you folks with more experience could give me some insight on what I might be overlooking. Thank you.
