If your immediate towing plans don’t include loads that would require a CDL, the turbodiesel may not be a wise investment.

At more than $8,000 over the gas engine, the oil-burner offers marginal returns for gooseneck towing.

Quick Specs
6.8
The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD stakes its claim on a workaday pickup that won’t look dated in 10 years.
7.3
The 2018 Ford Super Duty range combines maximum capability with the latest tech and conveniences—it’s no wonder they’re called “Cowboy Cadillacs” now.
7.5
The 2018 GMC Sierra HD would be at home at any jobsite. Likely found in the foreman’s lot, we suspect.
5.5
The 2018 Nissan Titan and Titan XD fill in the gaps left by others with a reasonable price, reasonable performance, and better warranty.
6.3
The 2018 Ram 2500 balances style, comfort, and capability very well.
