Who has upgraded from a '17-'19 or older model to a new 2020 6.7?

If so is your fuel economy better?

How do you like the 10 speed?

How do you like the electrohydraulic steering? Some say it feels like rack and pinion or the F150's EPS. Is the bump steer reduced with the electrichydraulic compared to previous years?

Thanks

I came from a 17 F350 dual to what you see now. The driving experience is a quite a bit different. First, the seat of pants feel of the torque is very noticeable. Throttle response is quite a bit better. Not a fair comparison with the dually but I'm getting 20 plus mpg highway and 15 to 16 in town driving vs 15 or so highway and 13 in town for the 17. The 10 speed is very smooth. It's almost like driving the wife's Subaru Ascent with the continuously variable transmission.

The steering is the biggest improvement. It is very solid and has the right feel for whatever speed. I had bump steer in the 17 from day one and finally changed the steering damper to a new Fox and it went away. It still tended to drift at highway speeds but wasn't something that bothered me too much. I intentionally drove over some rough roads when I got the 20 and not a hint of bump steer and there is no drifting at highway speeds. The ride is much improved also. I'm not sure what Ford did but it feels more forgiving with the bumps. It could be I'm comparing a single rear wheel to a dually but I do like it.

I gotta check out the 20+mpg highway in a new 475hp diesel!
Seems a bit optimistic.

I added SRW to my signature. Should have thought of that before.

Ford engineer says with the changes to the new engine a 1 mpg difference in fuel economy over the previous generation. I don't know if this includes the effect from lowering the truck and the new air dam up front or not.
