6.7 Powerstroke
The new 6.7 Powerstroke Diesel Engine is a great performing engine however it could be improved by adding a manually activated exhaust braking system. Ford claims there is an automatic activated exhaust brake system in place when the Tow/Haul mode is ON. I find this to be untrue w/ no change in hold back power whatsoever.

Ed D Brad: I saw a video on youtube, probably the one you are speaking of. I wish Ford engineers/designers would redesign their system.

Vincent Y The only way I can find to use engine braking on my 2012 F-350 is to manually downshift. The Tow/Haul mode does a great job on the gear-hunting on hills issue, but the auto-braking doesn't do anything that any of us can detect. If it is working so smoothly that I can't feel it, why doesn't the rig slow down on hills? It speeds up until I downshift.

brad a In a couple of recent head to head to head competitions, that is the ONE SINGLE category that Ford really lagged in, costing it the title as winner. GM did have more speed and power while towing up the passes, but not THAT much.
