It's a shame the 2014-2015 diesel trucks are not priced like my 2003 Ford F250 2wd Lariat crew cab with every option and leather captain's chairs. $32K new.

And those $650 payments about killed me. $50K financed today will run you $950 a month for 60 months.

It all depends on the weight of the load and the distance--total miles driven.

If you're going over 10,000 lbs., go for diesel, however.

But even if you go gas engine, go with the "heavy duty" trucks, not 1/2 tons.

I'm in farm country... All they stock are the 2500 and 3500 HD's. I did not even know they made a non-HD one. They even keep the 1500 HD's. They tell me the only people that keep buying the diesels are Amish who will keep them for 3 to 400,000 miles.

My trailer is 9,000 lbs and 95% of the driving is to and from work on a highway (not with a trailer) but it seems to me that the gov't has all but killed the diesel.

I paid 47k last year for a new 1 ton crew cab diesel. Payments just over 600 with little down. I don't like that much payment, but got to support my "habit"

Amish drive... Contrary to belief that they live in the dark and ride around on horses... They do this but they have trucks to get to the job sites where they are building homes and cell phones. They buy the chevy's almost exclusively and the 2500 diesel. They drive them until they fall apart then pay cash for the next one.

They have different levels of Amish and Mennonites.

We have a large bunch outside Lawrenceburg, TN that are strictly horse and buggy Amish without any home electricity.

Up in Western KY, they drive pickup trucks and farm tractors everywhere and have electricity. I used to see'em at the tractor and equipment auctions.

In Ohio, they have all kinds of Amish.

In Lancaster County, PA, they have Mennonites that drive black cars with anything chrome taken off--and the radios ripped out of the dashboards. In the same area, they have the biggest sect of horse and buggy Amish who ride bicycles to work in factories if they're not farming.

But I've never seen one drive a diesel pickup. We seldom see a 3/4 ton or 1 ton without being a diesel. Regarding towing larger RV's, if you want'a play, you gotta pay--to get a diesel that is.
