I've had nothing but great luck with my
Dodge 2500 with the Cummins
turbo-diesel! While lighter-duty trucks
are rated at 14 city and 17 highway, I
get 18/25 from the diesel, and it can
tow large trailers and boats without
breathing hard. It seats six with no
trouble, and the two benchs are roomy
enough that when it rained on us during
a camping trip, we each stretched out on
a bench seat for the night in comfort.
The diesel can't be beat for mileage and
turbo for when you need the extra power.
Hit the gas, give it two seconds and it
comes up with enough power to scare you.
The 8-foot bed can carry a room full of
Better stereo, more A/C vents or at
least better placed would be nice, and
the overdrive shutoff button put
somewhere more convenient like on the
Ford's shifter column.
