Most of us want a diesel option for fuel economy and towing concerns, were you under the impression the EcoDiesel was going to somehow make the trucks faster?
If someone is regularly towing a heavy load then they should look into an HD truck. No matter what the ratings are, the brakes and suspension on half tons isn't going to cut it for towing anywhere near capacity.
As for your second question, no. I knew this would be a mpg motor from the start, my point was I could care less about gas use so I'd rather a big gas engine- you can get 400ish HP in GM, Ram, Ford and Toyota trucks.
