What are your initial impressions on the 7.3 engine, and specifically the 10 speed transmission?
Hey, thanks for asking! Are you considering one? In a nutshell...

  • takes regular gas
  • more than adequate torque for hills and passing
  • quiet on the highway at 2000rpm
  • manually selectable downshifts
  • 4.30 gearing is great for launching from stoplights and city driving
  • 10 sp tranny is unobtrusive in operation, a non-issue for us
  • thirsty but improving, current average 22 litres/100 kms
  • can't think of anything else, had one service appointment at dealer for oil change
