When I bought my truck this year (see sig) I had a choice between the 1500 for $32k or a 2500 diesel for $35k. The diesel was as basic as it could get and still $3k more than the 1500 that had a lot of upgrades.

The Hemi runs like a beast and gets as good of MPG as the diesels pretty much. So, it really wasn't worth the price difference just to have the diesel...at least for me.

Also consider the 2500 has leaf springs in the rear rather than the coils on the 1500 which makes the 1500 ride smoother.
