Comfortably Truck.I owned a F350
powerstoke before this.I tow a 6000 pnd
trailer practically every day.The Dodge
tows better at lower speeds(i.e better
bottom end)but it could not keep up
with the Ford wide open on the
highway.If your towing long highway
miles the Ford is better, But if your
towing off road like I do The Dodge is
much better.The Dodge also gets
slightly better fuel mileage also.
Dodge redid its Ram 1500 full-size truck for 2002. For 2003, the heavies -- the 2500 and 3500 -- get their day in the sun. Along with the new Ram styling, these trucks receive more powerful engines, increased towing capacities, improved handling characteristics and additional safety equipment.
