Well I thought I would start another one of these threads.
The more we learn about the Titan XD, the more it looks to be closer to the
3/4 ton class such as the F-250.
I predicted the Titan to be the heaviest "1/2 ton" but goddam! MT recorded
7,400 lbs. Keep in mind that this looks to be a fully loaded 4x4. Hard getting info for a loaded F-250, but a 2008 4x4 CC is 8,100 lbs as recorded by C&D. The Super duty has not changed much since then, however, it is reported that the Super duty would lose 350 lbs. Now we are talking 7750 lbs.
Advantage: Titan XD by a hair.
Still unsure of this for the Titan. Hopefully it gets 9000 GVWR at least. The F-250 is 9900 lbs if you wish to stay clear of extra license cost. That will get you 2,150 lbs payload on a fully loaded CC 4x4.
Availability: Advantage Titan XD
ugh, both are over 3.5 tons of steal (and aluminium) Physics at work here,
can't see there being much difference.
Price: Too early to tell
The Titan XD is equipped with a very sleak 5.0L Cummins rated at 310 Hp
and 555 Ft/Tq. Nice! The 6.7L, however, is rated at 440 HP and 860 Ft/tq in CURRENT form. They may decide to bump that up for 2017. In any case...
