The 6.4L is a $1495 option. The CTD is an $8495 option, 35% higher fuel price, DEF, and has higher maintenance costs.
My 3.5 yr old truck has just over 17K miles on it(4 mile round trip commute to work), so it would take me about 18 yrs to make up the cost with the meager mileage difference. It's hard to justify that much extra expense for a monthly camping/snowmobile trip.
You can't get the 6.4 in the 1500. The current iteration is tuned for HD use, and would probably be pretty disappointing in the half ton.
