Cummins premium

I'm currently looking at 2 trucks:

2016 F250 CCSB Powerstroke Lariat

2016 Ram 2500 Cummins Laramie

The MSRP is within $250 or each other. However, the Ram is coming in about $3,500 more than the Ford after discounts.

The question is...is the Cummins worth the premium over the Powerstroke?

Honest opinion is nope. The cummins is a good motor but I have seen way to many issues with a Dodge and I will never own another but that is my opinion as a former Dodge owner and technician. You have to decide if it is worth it to you.

You'll get a thousand responses to your question. Bottom line, you have to make that decision. Each manufacturer has their pros and cons. Do your homework and make the decision that is best for you. I have a 2011 Ram CTD and have had no issues with it and absolutely love it. First Ram I have ever had. Good luck with your choice and happy camping.

I owned 1 Dodge pickup, gas Dakota. Great Truck. Up here the Dodge is very popular with contractors as the dealer gives out loaners when they break, contractors need a truck to work. I find the Ram noisier and the DW did not like the interior. We settled on the F 250 Powerstroke, Chevy a close second for me.
