We pay tax on the difference. Out the door with new 5th wheel hitch installed it's a shade under $62.
I drove a New Ford 350 Platnium. 71,900 was the sticker and they could get it down to 61,200.
Deal breaker was the lack of collision avoidance. Since we installed a collision avoidance system on our trucks at work the amount of collisions has been cut in 1/2, serious collisions have been cut by 90%. I drive a lot and my record would indicate I'm a excellent driver, but anything that offers that level of protection is a must for me.
I did like the factory 5th wheel prep. Fords Sync is better then GM's, heated rear seats in the Ford. It didn't ride as nice as the GMC.
The Ford is IMHO opinion the best looking truck of any of the HD's.
You can't get a diesel anything gmc for 60. Sorry, but that would be for gas maybe. I was comparing my old truck and 2016 GMC 2500 duramax 4x4 SLT and new fords. $63 is out the door price.
You mentioned you '05s 5 speed and it it being a dog compared to the 2016 ford, so you did compare against it at least some. And your wrong about prices. Check out Laura Buick Gmc. Just one example. Not saying your local dealer has those prices but you have to shop around. As long as your happy with our truck that's all that matters.
