    If you look, you'll see this topic has been beat to death. You may as well ask if people prefer Coke or Pepsi, because people will always like one over the other.

    Which Engine? The new D-max or the new Powerstroke. If your looking at the 6.0 powerstroke than get a D-max. If you are looking at the new 6.4L powerstroke than I say that instead of the d-max. I work at a Ford dealer. The 6.0 is garbage... just ask the service techs. But the new 6.4 isn't having half the problems that the 6.0 had at this point. Ford did a road test and drove a 6.4 150000 miles nonstop all accross the country. The truck was only shut off for service (oil changes n such). It should be on the website.

    A friend of mine that works at a dealer sent this to me this morning:

    A 2005 Powerstroke owner was pulling a 5th wheel up for the weekend last night through the Salt River Canyon and his tranny started slipping. A guy in a 2006 Duramax pulled over and asked him what the problem was so he explained. The Duramax guy offered to tow him out of the canyon and into town. The Ford guy said fine and began unhooking his 5th wheel. The Chevy guy told him not to bother and pulled the Ford (with the 5th wheel attached) out of the canyon and into our shop. The guy in the Ford said the Chevy was reaching speeds higher than the Ford on the way to the canyon! We sold the guy a 2007 Classic durmax in about 3 minutes!
