I will save the time, Duramax wins the first run, and Ford took two of the 3.

Just towed a friends 16k 5er with his DURAMAX, I will say it was a nice drive. The exhaust brake worked well the truck handled well.
It had the heads up display, which is a nice feature.
Ours has rain sensing wipers and auto high beams, and keyless entry.

"Ours has rain sensing wipers and auto high beams"


Those are two things I dod NOT order and sure don't miss.

What I did order I hate is the bed camera as that places the backup camera in my rear view mirror. Mine is a 2015 and people must have bitched as 2016 you can select where you want to view each. My only regret custom ordering my truck!
