I love my Ford truck and the 6.7. That being said, if you believe the new Duramax isn't more powerful across the entire powerband you are drinking some koolaid. GM has a good proven powertrain that is outperforming the new Powerstroke. I bet the Ford Engineers are working overtime trying to overcome this for the 2012-2013 model.
Looks like GM is really working hard to improve their products. All they need to do is redesign their interior and their truck would be a tough package to compete with.
Just two years ago, the frame test would have been vastly different. Looks like GM took a play out of the Ford F-150 playbook when they bashed the Tundra for its non-boxed frame (their frame looks very similar to the F-250s, just lighter duty).
