Did I hear right in the new advertisement, that the new 6.2 gets as good if not better fuel mileage than the eco-boost Ford? I've owned both Chevys and Fords, and have had good luck with both, but that new 1500 has got to take the cake!

Didn't know diesels were part of the thread.

Probably hard for some to believe, but some of us either don't like diesels, can't afford diesels or just don't want diesels. That's what makes the world go around. Not everyone has the same wants or desires.

Yes indeed my Hemi needs almost another 1K rpm to make that number. So on paper they make the same torque but as you said easy towing

They're not...notice I didn't mention the evil word "diesel" but was sharing posters enthusiasm for peak power at lower rpm's ,)

Now you've soiled this thread & brought the "D" word in the game!!! LOL!!!

Couldn't agree more. I through the idea around but ended up with a tundra and could not be happier that I didn't get a diesel. My tundra straight rips with no issues pulling my toy hauler. Although its not very big it's not different than a diesel with a 12000lb fiver behind it doing the same.

If your Tundra rips w/ the toy hauler...then my diesel must be equivalent to the space shuttle towing my 12K 5'ver....sorry but there is a BIG difference, as Old Coot stated we're all having fun either way! ,)
