Duramax vs. Power Stroke: Which side are you on?

December 2010 News
Many truck owners are big fans of diesel engines, but with each of the Detroit automakers using a different diesel, heavy-duty truck buyers have options.

What side are you on: Duramax, or Power Stroke?

Both Ford and GM have tuned and tweaked their offerings: Ford released the new in-house 6.7-liter Power Stroke engine; after a new software upgrade, it's now rated at 400 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque. GM's Duramax has been updated and now is rated at 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of torque. Each hooks up with a six-speed automatic transmission that features manual shift modes.

Of course there's also the Cummins diesel in the Dodge Ram, but it hasn't been upgraded recently.
Below is a quick video highlighting each engine. Which one wins you over? Tell us in a comment below.

It sets you apart from others and in the truck scene, only 250 lucky diesel pickup enthusiasts will have the honor of saying they own and drive the slick design of the 2021 Ford Shelby F250 Super Baja.
