Re:New 6.0 Ford vs Chev vs Dodge

Like many of you, I read that &quot;test and evaluation&quot;<br>of the three trucks yesterday. By what they wrote,<br>the new Ford PSD (6.0 Diesel) does look impressive.<br><br>However, I would like to point out that Clint Cannon<br>@ATS recently purchased a Chevy Duramax with the<br>Allison Transmission. In testing and drag racing that<br>Chevy, he found that the Allison was &quot;slipping&quot; when<br>they &quot;turned up the power&quot; on it. It was necessary<br>for them to put in one of their &quot;TripleLok&quot; Converters<br>plus some other things to make that tranny perform<br>better. I wonder how the new Ford Auto 5-speed<br>will hold up under abuse???<br><br>--------<br>John_P

slipping in 5th gear. maybe the lock up clutch too? those allisons aren't all that they are cracked up to be, but at least are the most reliable transmissions in stock form....so far. <br><br>i keep telling myself &quot;don't get excited for the Ford&quot;.. ;D

Re:New 6.0 Ford vs Chev vs Dodge

after seeing all the trobles my firend with powerstrokes are having, I would be scared to own one. Me or my family have never had good luck with them. The new fords don't look to bad though but i still have not gotten use to the new dodge look. But That powerstroke seems to just be a pile so i can't ever see my self owning one. But we shall see. It might be a nice truck or it might be a really big POS. just my 0.02 -Anthony

Re:New 6.0 Ford vs Chev vs Dodge

I wish we could have seen how are 6spd compares to ford and GM. Are auto got beat down. I think the 6spd would have put up a great fight if not win but I could be wrong. After seeing are # compared to Ford and GM on the auto I am kind of surprised. But I hate auto so I guess i have not to worry about. But I hear the HO puts out 305Hp and 555 ft. lbs torque. I guess I hate to hear that we are losing in that area. Ok I am going to bed. good night all -Anthony

dieseldude4x4,<br><br>I agree with you about the Ford sponsored test. The Dmax, or Dodge either one with a one mile head start and the Ford catches up in three miles. I haven't done the math, but how fast did that Ford have to be going to make up a mile in just three???<br><br>Bill

Re:New 6.0 Ford vs Chev vs Dodge

Here's something that Allison does have and it's a CopyWrited design... When an Allison is in direct drive it is 100% power transfer, basically. The clutches get locked in mechanically to and have a cone (I can't think of the name of it) It's a cone chaped contrapton that locks in over the clutches and makes it to where there's no way to slip the clutches after they're engaged. But this is only in direct connect so I hear, so I guess the remaining gears are prone to being burnted up and destroyed. But minus the TC, the Allison in DD should hold all the power in the world.
