Hello all Billy here, I am a new member here today. I had joined another F150 forum but didnt know about the "Diesel specific" forum until today. Good news!
Anyhow, as of 10/6/21, I am a new owner of a 2021 F150 Supercrew 5.5 Lariat 4x4, 501a, Star white, Black leather, 3.55 elec lock and a few other options, found on the dealer lot in Rhode Island and with no "Covid extra charges" over MSRP. With 0% financing, it was a decent deal for current times. This truck is a welcome change from my 1999 F250 with 7.3 diesel. Many awesome creature comforts have arrived in Ford trucks since that engine and design, haha.
I am looking forward to hearing more about this truck and insight from others here.
I did buy the ESP plan from Ziegler for 8yrs/150k, so it looks like I will be covered for a while. Enjoy!
Welcome Billy! Great to have you join us. That sounds like an awesome and beautiful truck, I hope it performs as many years as your 1999 did.
How do you compare the noise of the 7.3 to the 3.0? A big difference, I know, but as I understand it the 7.3 is a common rail with a single injection of fuel each combustion cycle whereas ours is a gradual injection over the cycle. (or so I have heard). Anyway, jump in and let us know if you have any issues or questions.
This 3.0 Is so quiet, youd never know it is a diesel under the hood. As for comparing to my old 7.3 by noise level, my neighbors thought I was away, there is no hiding that engine @5am starts, especially during the winter trying to warm it up for 10 minutes before driving away. I am sure they are all happy now, haha.. This isnt a truck , its a fancy car with an open trunk. So comfortable to drive. Thanks again for the welcome, I will be interested in mods, upgrades etc.
