The only place there was a tie was on the fuel consumption, on every other test the clear winner was the D'Max...

I think Ford will upgrade it's exhaust brake, and maybe tweak the turbo, other than that, the quality and longevity of the Ford is a deciding factor.
The Dodge, with it's late 400/800 entry will be interesting as it is running the old school dpf (I believe). The better the competition, the better truck they will produce... so in the end, it's the buyer that is the winner...
