I have towed with all three in the last 5 years and absolutely love the Ram! It is hands down the best tow vehicle of the three. Quite, comfortable, powerful, decent mileage, it is the whole package.

We have several of both at work. Ford has LOTS of turbo failures. That being said, I still prefer the Ford ride and power of the two. if I were going to buy a new one, it would be a Dodge.

I have had a great duramax and now work where we have both new fords and rams. No comparison in the power and quiet. ford or duramax both are much quieter and have more power. Personal ride is a new ford pulling a 36' blue ridge 5ver. Dodge cab is nice, cummins is just noisy and vibrates. We have 2 brand new and they are both the same.

DH likes Fords. His Ford 1 ton work van is about to retire at 300,000 miles. It still runs though, but rough. I call that reliable.

Only Ford, never anything else. Chevy and Ram just don't add up any way you look at them.

Go to the dealer and drive each and decide. I prefer the ford for interior, quiet and power. The new 6.7 is a torque monster. Dodge has finally improved their interior and looks good. The Chevy with the Allison trans is hard to beat.

IMHO ford is the only way to go. (Yes I know my TV is a half ton gasser). I have driven and put to the test all three in my line of work and nothing will ever compare to a ford. Every Chevy I had and towed heavy pipe filled trailers with was in the shop within a month. Every dodge I've had lasts about three months. (Current company truck is a 2013 dodge cummins). My current truck has 2,000 on it and already has the check engine light on. Fords have been the only trucks I can get long dependable lives out of. For instance my little half ton I used to use it for work towing 15k+ trailers and it just keeps on going. Currently have 136,000 on it an it runs just like the day I bought it!
