How do you like the 6.7 and the cummins every day. That isn't real testing because you dont drive the other 2 every day. You like your brand new duramax. Who wouldn't, its a brand new truck and a good engine. Anyone that is driving either of the other brands, provided they didn't have any problems with it, would say the exact same thing.

Actually many of these Ford issues are when they are very close to new. That's why it's so frustrating.

I thought we were talking about comparing the engine's capabilities. I clearly said that if you didn't have any problems with it. I am sure people with gm's and dodges could tell you similar stories. That wasn't what we were discussing

I own about 20 trucks most of them are F250-F350 but some are Chevy. I have minor problems with both, after 80,000-100,000 miles they will need a transmission. But if I had to pull all that weight everyday I'd want to be refreshed also. A Toy wouldn't last long and replacing it would end up costing more. Remember keep the Green Side Up!

The article is right here on lawnsite in this section.......look it up. They were both new trucks so apples to apples.
