6.7 Good Comments Only
I thought Iíd get a thread going that shares some of the good things folks have to say about the new 6.7. I purchased my new 2007 Laramie, 2500 Mega Cab about three weeks ago and have enjoyed it immensely. Iíve read all of the negative comments on this board and it now has me listening to every noise my truck makes as it drives down the road. I hope this note doesnít jinx me but Iíd like to hear from some other folks that are experiencing good things with their 6.7ís.
I stepped out on a limb with this purchase understanding that the 6.7 was a new design and saddled with additional environmental controls. In fact I bought the truck while my wife was out of town and I picked her up at the airport in it (thought I may have needed to sleep on the couch that night but she loved it). I needed a new truck and had confidence in Cummins to deliver. The jury is still out on whether or not they actually delivered but man I have to tell you I really like this truck. As a former 7.4L gasser, I canít begin to tell you how impressed I am with the power and torque. Un-fricking believable. However the best feature for towing has to be the exhaust break. I canít begin to tell you how nice that is when you come down some of the monster grades we have in Idaho, Montana, and Oregon. Granted Iím only towing an 8,000 trailer, but none the less, the combination of the 6 speed auto and exhaust break is unbelievable. In terms of mileage, with 2700 miles currently on the rig, it gets better each time I fill up. Around town Iím right at about 13 and while towing Iím close to 11. I think I need some more miles on it to get a good feel for the economy.
The fit and finish on the truck is nice although I do agree with a few folks on here that GM and Ford has done a nicer job. Again, I hope not to jinx myself but I have to believe there are other folks out there like me that are experencing some good thing with their new 6.7.
In any event, let me hear from you if you enjoy your new ride.
