Like many have said all three have great features and some room for improvement. IMO all the engines are great with a slight edge to Ram's CTD. Again all have excellent transmissions with the edge to GM. So being they are all effective to perform the task they are designed for then it comes to styling, comfort, and price. Start with which one you like the best from a looks perspective and see what kind of deal you can get.

The trucks are close enough to be personal preference but the Cummins is the best engine. That would be my choice.

Thanks for all the responses. We did purchase a Dodge 2500 with 5.7 Hemi, with 4WD (don't know if we will need that or not). Makes me feel safer about towing our 28BHBE than with the F150. Long trip this weekend to try it all out.

Post up how it goes, I'm interested to read about your experience.

I've been eyeing the new ones with the 6.4...

We are currently in the same situation, we are going to be purchasing a new TV probably in the next year. We have test driven the big three so far and still do not have a solid winner! I love the Fords, mostly because I love my 07 150, but my wife loves the Longhorn Ram and I like how the '15 GMC Denali's ride. But overall I still find myself gravitating toward the Ford F-250 Lariat. I do agree that any one of these would be a great choice, albeit an expensive one! LOL
