Congratulations on your new rig. I am running a 2017 F350 with the 6.2 gas engine and having had a diesel in the past, I have a much higher comfort level that I am going to get where I need to go and back without problems.
I carry a 2017 Northern Lite 8.11 and I have not felt underpowered at all with mine, even when towing my 12 foot ATV trailer loaded up with my ATV, coolers etc. Mine has the 3.73 gears so I know I downshift sooner that I would if I still had my 6.2 gas with the 4.30’s but it has not been noticeable to where I wish I had gotten the 4.30’s.
I think more and more people are looking seriously at the newer gas engines than ever before and I personally cannot see me ever having another diesel. I just don’t need it for what I do.
I believe you are really going to enjoy your new truck and look forward to seeing updates from you on how it is performing.
