Dually diesel 4X4 trucks are built to last. The savings with a diesel engine is significant enough to make it worth the money with as much as 40 to 50% more miles per gallon of fuel than gas engines of the same size. The towing power alone is outstanding, and more than ever before, dually diesel trucks give a smooth, comfortable ride with features that can't be beat. Featured below are the three popular used dually diesel 4x4 trucks, including prices and information on performance, engine styles, and pros and cons of each.
The Ford dually diesel crew cab offers comfort, yet it is tough. With power leather seats, power windows, and power sunroof, the F-350 is designed for the short haul or long road trip because it is roomy. Its 4 wheel drive, 6.0L//6.4L 8 cylinder engine gives the power needed for towing. With a 6 speed automatic transmission, classy nerf bars and an up-to-date navigation system, this truck is awesome. The F-350 Dually Diesel comes with an off road towing package and the option of a long bed. It is a little pricey compared to the GMC and Dodge Ram, with a $40,000 to $45,000. price tag on trucks that are 4-5 years old, but the positives out beat the negatives. This truck is powerful and offers a comfortable smooth ride.
Ford Motor Company made its first Ford F-series trucks in 1948. At that time they were known as the F-1, F-2, and F-3 models. By 1953 they changed to F-150, 250 and 350, and in 1954, the F-350, also known as the "mileage maker" donned at 223 c.i. engine putting out 115 hp. The first crew cab was manufactured in 1969 and by 1970 the F-350 engines became even more powerful. The Custom, Sport, Ranger and Ranger XLT's had 302 c.i. engines with 220 hp.
The Dodge Dually Diesel quad cab has a 6 speed manual transmission, a 6.7 Cummins engine, anti lock brakes, power steering, cruise control, power windows, privacy glass, and a custom towing package. It also has custom running boards and a great body style. The navigation system offers an MP3 player and phone. The pros on this the Laramie 4x4 all point to price. A 2008 Laramie 4x4 runs a good $10,000.00 cheaper than the F-350, with prices starting in the low $30,000 range. With the 6 speed manual transmission, towing is no problem. The down side is all about comfort. This truck doesn't have the leather fully automatic seats that the F-350 has. Maybe that's why the F-350 has the huge price tag.
Named "Truck of the Year" in Motor Trend Magazine 3 times, the Dodge Ram is assembled in Michigan, Missouri, and Mexico. Until late last year The Chrysler Group LLC manufactured the Ram, it is now owned by Ram Trucks. The Ram hood ornament was first seen on Dodge cars in the 1930's. Dodge Dually Diesels have been around since 1981 and are still going strong.
The GMC dually diesel crew cab has a 6.6L Duramax Turbo diesel engine so it is smooth, powerful and economic. The accessories include heated captain chairs, factory powered mirrors, and a Reese-style towing package, and a 6 speed automatic transmission, so this truck's got it going on. The price is right, with 2007 and 08's running anywhere from $20,000 to $30,000, a full $10,000 less than the Ram and the Ford F-350.
General Motors purchased this company from Rapid Motor Vehicle Company in 1909. In 1912 the GMC truck was first seen on display at the New York International Auto Show. More than 22,000 trucks were manufactured that year, but only 372 were GMC's. During World War II the military purchased over 600,000 trucks from GMC.
By comparison, the GMC dually diesel truck beats the Ford and the Ram for price. Its 6 cylinder automatic engine may not have the power of the other 2, but it all depends on what's being towed. The Dodge dually diesel truck comes in second for price, has the comfort and power of the Ford F-350, and is moderately priced. The Ford dually diesel truck beats them all for comfort and power, but has a higher price tag, nevertheless, all 3 dually diesel trucks are well worth considering.
