My thoughts exactly. I towed with a Tundra, own a Ram with the CTD now. I can promise you that my Tundra was WAY faster to accelerate than my Ram was, towing my 29QBS.
The Toyota has 381 HP and can quickly rev up to get those horses moving without and torque management issues. The CTD only has 350 hp (assuming you don't have the Aisin trans) and is a slower revving engine and has a lot of torque mgmt in the lower gears.
I have tons of power with my CTD, but I don't ever mash the accelerator when I drive it... especially towing. I'm sure a Ford 5.4 could "beat me in a race" towing, not because its a faster vehicle, but simply because I wouldn't engage it in a speed contest...
