If all you are looking at is which pulls better, the Ford 6.2 has way more power than the Chevy 6.0 and will pull much better.

Look at my signature block. You won't be disappointed except with the empty fuel mileage. I'm actually impressed with the pulling mileage.

I looked up the specs the Ford motor makes about 25HP and 25 Ft lbs more than the Chevy. The Dodge Hemi in the Ram with a 1/2 litre less displacement than the Ford still equals it in power and torque. Personally I prefer the solid front axles in the Ford and the Dodge HD models.

I would go with the Ford. Wouldn't have anything government motors parked in my driveway.

IMHO, if you are moving into the 250/2500 range, bite the bullet and go with a diesel, even if it is several years old; depending on your personal preference Ford, Chevy or Ram will serve you well vs a gasser.
