Is it for me??

Hey everyone. Looking for opinions on whether the ED is for me. I commute 5 days a row in southern Ontario here with around 130km round trip. It's all highway driving, but any Canadians out there can agree with me that the 400 series highway's aren't always traffic free.

Do you guys think that the ED will be beneficial for me compared to the Hemi? Is it worth the $$$ for the upgrade. I know diesel's tend to have higher maintenance costs compared to gasoline engines. Plus the Hemi has been around longer, and proven in the Ram platform.

Anyone with some helpful advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm just trying to get the best bang for my buck.

Hi there, and welcome to the forum. I suspect you will get mostly positive diesel responses on this site. Your engine choice will have a great deal to do with what you are going to do with the truck. If you're mostly empty, then my recommendation is the pentisar v6 gas or the EcoDiesel and I'm particularly happy with my ED.

If you are going to tow a lot, then you have a different choice between the Hemi or the ED.

Your driving style is important too. If you're looking for high performance then the Hemi is the thing, but you're going to pay a premium in fuel.

I'm a long commuter in southern ontario also, and I picked the diesel. I'd rather pay for the maintenance than the gas price every time I fill up.

Ok, guys and gals, jump in!
