Given the fuel economy of current diesels (because of epa emissions bs) the cost savings on the 6.4, maintenance savings, and similar fuel economy numbers with cheaper fuel is I think going to propel sales of the 6.4 gas 3/4 ton rigs to numbers that haven't been seen in years in the gas 3/4 ton segment. Don't get me wrong if money were no object or I was towing most days up near the maximum limit of the vehicle diesel would be the clear choice. If its being used as a DD and you need it tow greater than a 1500 but not all the time I think the clear winner would be the 6.4.

Warranty is pretty neat too. I bet you will get a marginally better loan rate on the brand new truck VS the 11. The diesel may have slightly better resale based on the investment but if you don't plan on getting rid of it in the next 3 or 4 years I would say gas all the way. Also check on the insurance and license plate differences which shouldn't be that far apart.
