2016 Ram 2500 Cummins
I just purchased this truck in April. It just broke 3K miles on it. I have a smaller trailer (25' at 4500 lbs.) and it tows as expected. Its a small trailer for this truck. I had a Nissan Titan (non tow package). Although the Titan pulled it fine, I got a good deal on the truck and purchased the truck for my next trailer that I will probably get next year (5th wheel).
It is the Tradesman package (low end) with the Cummins Turbo Diesel with 4x4, engine block heater, dual alternators, show chief group for a plow, trailer brake controller, exhaust brake and LED bed lights, full size spare, IP switches on the dash and some other stuff. (MSRP) was $53K. It has the shorter 6'5" bed and no NAV. I got it for about 43K with an extended warranty and a handful of oil changes included. Because its not the 3500 it only has the engine with 800 Ft Lbs of torque where as the 3500 has 880.
Towing my trailer I get about 12-14 MPG. With out it on the highway I get close to 21-22 Mpg. In Town its about in the middle of the two.
It tows this trailer with absolutely no effort (which is expected). I purchased this as part a plan to upgrade to a 5th wheel next year.
This truck has, so far, exceeded my expectations. Granted, the trailer that it is towing is small but based on what I have seen thus far it will not disappoint me with my larger 5th wheel next year.
As a comparison, my brother has the 2015 F350 Powerstroke. Personally, I think that the Ram is better looking on the outside and inside then the Ford. His engine is quieter then my Cummins. I am not sure why that is other then his is a V8 vs the I6 of the Cummins. He has had an issue with the DEF system. It has had the DEF pump replaced as well as some other parts of the DEF system but I cant recall what else. He has more miles on his truck too (30K). His trailer is nearly the same weight as mine and his mileage is very close to what I get with the Ram.
