Lets see. We use all three at work and I run'em hard. The Ford gets the best fuel mileage but allways breaks in the middle of nowhere. The Chevy has poor f/m but never lets us down. Pulls the hardest and keeps on going. The Dodge's are just butt ugly, loud, smelly, slow, and can't be trusted. Who thought of that seat in them? After a six hour run you can't walk. No body at work likes 'em and I've seen rocks,paper,sissors used to get out of 'em. And worse, they have no class. And that means everything to my guys. You can go ahead and slam me but after six years of taking care of 'em, these things stand true. BTW we have a fleet of 12, four each.

The only dodge truck I like is the 3500. But the best would be a F350 with a cummins in it.
