Can't buy an E450 with a diesel anymore, which means it has the V10 Triton. I took it out today and it does ok, certainly not like the newer truck I pictured, which has waaay more than enough power. I will say the V10 shifts very smoothly, but the pedal gets buried on any sort of grade, and we have a lot of hills. From Colorado Springs you can gain 3500 vertical feet to the upper reaches of our area. I've worked out of the V10s before in cities and they are fine for a small box or Type II. Instead we bought the largest box possible...Great minds think alike lol. Why do you think it won't have any go? The new turbo diesels are making 700-800 FT/lbs of torque stock nowadays.
Supposedly since they stopped refurbing to the Chevy chassis like I said we're gonna end up with a bunch of V10 tritons...shoot me. We will see though, doesn't make any sense with all the hills we deal with.
