Titan XD (diesel) vs. Titan XD (gas)
Well I thought that I would start a comparison in which the Titan XD would win (kidding!)
So we are starting to get info on the gas version of the Titan XD and it would
be interesting how the would stack up against each other. So here goes:
Price: We have never seen a case in which the gas version of a truck is cheaper than the diesel. The only question is how much cheaper the gas will be.
Payload: We all know the gas will be lighter and therefore more payload IF they keep GVWR the same. Manufactures have given lower powered trucks a smaller GVWR so who knows
Advantage: most likely still gas
Towing: I very much doubt the will give the gas the same towing capacity as the Cummins, but then again the Cummins usually can't tow more than 10k# with it payload anyhow
Advantage: Diesel - just keep pin weight at 10%!
Overall Performance: The gas will no doubt be better in braking and acceleration in everyday use.
MPG/ Miles per $: A year ago I would have said the Diesel for sure, but now I am not so sure. If the gas requires premium, the diesel will probably win in MP$ given the same MPG. Unknown for now
Ease of Maintenance, Convenience: Ok we wont go there
