depends on if your looking for a regular work truck or just wondering who has the most powerful diesel. If your looking for a work truck that is new or used it doesn't matter, the dodge cummins diesel has always been more powerful and longer lasting in terms of the engine and pulling capabilities. The most powerful diesel built for pulling is owned by scheid diesel motorsports, its a cummins diesel that's putting out somewheres around 1600 hp and 2200 ft lbs torque.

WRONG!!! Dodge diesels are not good. Dont get me wrong Cummins is by far one of the best diesels ever made but there transmissions cant hang. Chevy has the fastest diesel and overall best diesel in the new diesel market but the 7.3 liter 1994.5 to 2003 ford powerstroke diesels are the best on the road. I have had 12 valve cummins and 24 valve cummins all were good engines but had weak transmissions. My fords have never let me down. EVER! I hate the 6.0 liter engines and the new 6.4 liter is the worst yet but trust me hands down the 7.3 is the longest lasting diesel on the road today. If you don't belive me look it up.

It depends where one looks but a frequently recommended truck for diesel truck pulls is the Ford diesel truck but does cost nearly $60,000. Also recommended are the GMC diesel truck and the Dodge diesel truck.

In most areas of the country, regular gasoline and diesel are about the same price. Therefore a diesel truck will have similar operating expenses to one that uses regular gasoline.

The advantage of a diesel truck is that diesel burns more efficiently than regular gasoline. However, parts and service for a diesel truck are sometimes higher.
