Default 2014 2500 with 6.4 or 5.7

My first post here. Have a 1996 SLT 4x4 now and thinking about buying a 2014 2500 4x4. What suggestions do you have on either the 5.7 or 6.4 HEMI. Don't want a diesel engine.

Thanks for any suggestions.

The 6.4 has MDS and is said to get as good or better fuel mileage than the 5.7. Plus it's rated with 27 more horsepower and 29 more torque and can tow almost as much as the Cummins. All this for only $1495 more than the base motor.

Go drive them!

You'll be happy with either. I've got 3 HD's with the 5.7 and I love them, but I'm gonna get the 6.4 for more power and equal mpg's it looks like, with the cylinder deactiviation on the 6.4. Don't think of it as spending $1500 on the big gas, think of it as saving $6500 by not getting the diesel.

I have the 5.7 and it is enough power for me. Getting off from a stop it is slower... but the 2500 is heavier. once you are at speed... you hit the gas and you are gone. That truck will scoot! the $1400 is not worth the small gains. It will tow most anything just fine within it's weight class with no problems... other than fuel cost.

Do you remember what size rear you have on your truck?
