My question always is, why do you want to out pull and out run? So you can get to the gas station first?

Just get whichever truck you like best, some like the Denali, other a King Ranch. All three have great trucks, all three will climb that steep hill, all three will need maintenance. Enjoy your truck.

Ford got wind of the Chevy head to head deal and is fairly upset-so I have heard. If you notice, the company they used was approached by Chevy...how much money did GM pay to have the results "altered" in some way? Word has it that GM and Ford are doing a head to head again, with engineers from both companies present and a different testing firm to make sure nothing is altered. This is just what I have been hearing. Should be interesting.

Aside from that, I have a new 2011 F250 with the new 6.7L powerstroke and I absolutely love it. Rides great, plenty of tow power, and comfortable interior. I get good fuel mileage, 16-17 in town not towing, and 12.5 highway towing.

It's all in what you want. If you are a Ford guy, buy a Ford. Gm guy, by GM. Dodge guy, buy a Dodge. If you want to change it up a bit, I am sure none of the "big 3" heavy duty trucks will disappoint.

I noticed that the Ford was an F250 and the Dodge was a 2500. I didn't see what the Chevy was. Could it possibly be a 3500, and not a 2500 which would
make a difference in the load carrying sag.

Don't be so quick to say no. The F250 rear spring pack has 3 main leaves while the F350 rear spring pack has 4 main leaves plus an overload leaf. That is my only gripe with my truck...no overload leaf. Ford did this to make the ride quality better.
