I test drove a used 6.4 and the new 6.7 and the Ram and GMs. The 6.4 was a nice truck. I liked it. The 6.7, even better IMO. Why? Well, I think the transmission is fantastic. And, I am pretty confident my 6.7 gets better mileage. That being said, I have seen videos of the 6.4s tuned and they are amazing.
H&S did a torture test on the 6.7 and the transmission held up through 880+ HP / 1650 ft-lb and then started to slip. STOCK transmission!
The rams were not impressive to me in 2012. I liked some features they had, but overall I wasn't enthralled. And, I really like the cummins...just the truck felt odd to me.
Duramax - liked. But, interior was no comparison to the Ford and I like my HD truck looking and feeling like a HD truck. That, and I liked a lot of the features Ford offers (and larger interior leg room).
I wish you luck in your decision. I am at 16,000 miles on mine (1yr old). I just made a 300 mile trip and got a personal best of 20.4 mpg (Hand calculated). No complaints!
