I have always been a Ford guy, but when shopping for the F250 versus Silverado 2500, I thought the Chevy had a better ride, a nicer interior, a the dealer was very aggressive in terms of pricing. Mileage has been OK so far, well within my expectations. Also, very pleased with the looks of the truck.
The interior and ride was what sold me. The diesel can pull more than anything I will ever need to pull. And it's a very queit motor once warmed up.
Being picky, the truck should come standard with running boards/steps. I've put on some after markets that look great. The bed rails should also have protection. Again, after markets look great. Also, the interior door panels are just a little plasticy. Really not much to complain about.
