I looked at both the Dodge (I've owned a Ram 2500 with a Cummins), and the Nissan. I was never pleased with the Dodge, the engine was great but the Truck fell apart around the engine, and it road like an old farm tractor. Also, I only wanted a 4 door Crew Cab. I can carry 4 300 lbs people plus 398 lbs of Fuel & cargo. Since the combined weigh of me and my wife is 310 lbs, we can carry 1288 lbs of Fuel & cargo.
Max Payload Max Towing
Dodge Eco Diesel 1600 LBS 9,000 LBS
Nissan SD Cummins 1598 LBS 11,928 LBS
When I purchased it there were no Gas models available, they came out last month. I bought it because it has a Cummins 5.0 Liter V8.
So the Nissan has a whopping 2 Lbs less payload capacity and can has 2,928 lbs more in Towing Capacity.
I drove both the Nissan & the Dodge, I like the ride much better on the Nissan, and the options were much better. Out of the 3 prior Trucks 2 Dodges Truck & 1 Toy Truck, the Nissan has the best ride. I paid about $42,500 with all the discounts.
