Ford vs. Chevy vs. Dodge
Which is best for this type of job? Hauling? Towing? Overall?
which ever you already own with no payments...
None actually, looking to buy a new one
They're all good and they all have problems. Ford and Chevy have more to offer in the commercial department.
Toyota.. all the way
You can't go "wrong". Every brand has their lemons. Go drive some, see what options you want, see what engine you think is best.
There will always be the Chevy guys that say get a Chevy, the Ford guys will say get a Ford and the Dodge guys will say to get a Dodge.
I will make one recommendation, the Cummins diesel engine is the best diesel engine for pulling, being an I-6. They also have the highest resale value of any of the diesel engines.
How much equipment and trailer are you going to be pulling and will you plan on getting a bigger trailer in the future, maybe an enclosed trailer? A purchase like this warrants the need to think about the future. Diesel engines will cost more upfront, but will retain their value more, same with 4x4.
I'm working on a custom 1979 dodge warlock that i will be using for my business next season i hope.
that is going to be my next purchase. Even though my family has worked for GM for over 35 yrs, I am moving on
It all depends on what features you are looking for and what price is most appealing to you...I would recommend nothing less than a 3/4 ton though...and keep in mind what dealer is closest to you and would be most convenient to deal with in the future...Personally I would go with a GM - GMC Sierra 2500HD
You know what, I have had all three Dodge, Ford and Chevy and I honestly can't say one was really any different then the others when it was all said and done. So, it really just boils down to what YOU like.
