Just heard a radio commercial for a Dodge 1500 diesel. 420ld/ft is nice, same as the Ecoboost. The 240hp is less than impressive though. If you go to there site it attacks the Eco's MPG but it actually only outperforms the 3.7L V6 when it comes to towing.

240 hp is irrelevant.
its all about the torque in a diesel.
pulls like a mother f'er.

an apprentice I work with just took delivery of one(dodge) that's why I brought it up... I love my 1ton but would pick up a halfton diesel in a heart beat.

The one thing I didn't like about the dodge was it was a 4x4 and it didn't look like it and sat lower then a 2wd truck
