    The key to turn that off is on the left side of your keyboard. Just hit it once. That should allow you to STOP SCREAMING!!!!

    I heard last week that either this year or next year that Ford would replace the Powerstroke with the Cummings Diesel anybody here anything about that.
  • cdeancdean Posts: 1,110
    it is a wild, entirely unsubstantiated rumor that has gone on for years.

    The answer is no. Ford has contract and Navistar has a new engine developed that will power Fords for the next 5 years. Cummins isn't even in the picture for Ford light duty pickups.

    In the 2 ton applications (big delivery trucks), you have always been able to get Cummins in Fords, as well as Cats, or Detroit Diesels, or Internationals.

    My truck will be used mostly for basis transportation and occasionally to pull an l8 ft enclosed trailer weighing 4,500 lbs. Is the 5.4 up to the task or is the 7.3 worth the extra money, noise, and smell? If I were hauling over 6,000 I would go for the 7.3, but in this case, just don,t know. What's your opinions? My last question-when will the dealers be taking orders for the 200l's .

    I just got back from the local Ford dealer, placed an order for a 2001 F-250 SD SC SB 2wd
    diesel 6sp.
    I hope it is everything I heard about it.
    I killed my '91 302 this weekend.
    we have a 6000lb camping trailer we pull regularly.

    sinclair2,
    No towing done here but the engine of choice is the 7.3L diesel. I just like the diesel. If you're pulling on a regular basis I think that the best choice is the diesel. But, then again, I'm just weird.

    I posted this in another area but I see these may be newer postings.

    I am planning to purchase a 2001 F-250 SD 4WD (probably diesel) to replace my faithful 1988 suburban. We plan to switch to a 5th wheel camper from our tow behind camping trailer. My question is: can I tow with the short box F-250? Is there enough room for the hook up or does it have to be the long box? I have never towed a 5th wheel at all, and I see that many of you tow regularly. It would only be several times a year but I think they look and sound like awesome trucks.

    I have been reading with interest the many postings here about the Ford Super Duty's and am becoming more convinced that this is the truck for me.

    Any help would be appreciated. This is my first time (well second now) in the town hall forum.

    I just ordered a new F-250 XLT Super Duty 4X2 Crew Cab from local dealer. Dealer told me that order is for 2001 model, but he doesn't have MSRP yet. Don't want "sticker shock". Has anyone got a feel for the 2001 MSRP for these vehicles yet? Dealer info welcome if you are reading.
  • mlistermlister Posts: 6
    Oh, didn't mean to forget the great folks at Edmunds. Have any of you gotten info on the MSRP for the 2001 F-250's yet?
