I totally agree with you, I just wonder if Ford suddenly 'finds' a CPU flash that reprograms our trucks to put out more HP once the Dodge and Chevy crew think they have Ford beat.
Just a thought.
The only time that would happen is if the competition introduced a higher hp/tq tune in the same year. Ford ain't gonna give away performance if it can sell you a new model year truck. Oh, and the 6.7 flash was in response to GM. Otherwise they would have left it alone.

I think the interesting thing about the graphs is that the bump in HP and torque is from 2000-3000 RPM which is where a lot of spirited driving is done. I personally don't see much above 2000 except when towing and I always use premium then.
