September 16, 2010i test drove a low mileage 06 6.0 350 and the firmness of the shift really stood out to me. Maybe its cause both myother vechiles are 5.4 automatics. So do you guys think the diesel trans shift noticiably firmer?

September 16, 2010I have a 5.4 auto F250, and use an 05 6.0 350 for work. In my opinion, when the 6.0 is warm, and you are driving under normal condition with tow/haul OFF, it shifts extremely smooth to me, almost not even feeling it shift. Now if the truck is cooler, it sometimes delays shifting, and can at times definitely have a firm shift. I also notice having tow/haul on, can change the firmness a touch. This is my experience with my driving habits on only one specific 6.0 truck, so don`t take my response as that this is how they all are, because I imagine it varies widely between trucks.
