Absolutely diesel, if you can afford it. You don’t want to be the guy slowing down all the locals when they are going to/from work.

You didn’t mention 4X4. I asked about this when I was looking at trucks. I am glad I got it. I have needed it three times already. Last time was just wet grass, but I needed it.

Here is a link to a very recent 2014 Ultimate One-Ton HD Challenge by PickupTruck.com.


GM won again, but all three will do a fine job

2012 Silverado 2500HD CC Z71 Duramax/Allison

Firestone Ride-Rite Air Springs

Let me just throw this out there. Have you ever heard a person with a diesel say its too much or they wish they'd have gotten a gasser. And every diesel owner will tell you they would not go back.

On the other hand, there are gasser owners who are happy with their truck, and gasser owners who wish they had gotten diesel.

If finances allow it, I'd recommend diesel. I've done tons of research on the two, and engines within the diesel category. The only drawback to diesel is higher maintenance costs. But in the end, much better mpg, towing capacity, life expectancy, etc.
