There are many quality features in each of these models. Some have better safety features. The technology may be more up-to-date in one of the listed models. Perhaps the interior is slightly softer and more comfortable in a certain truck. But let's be honest, you don't buy a heavy-duty truck to listen to the radio or recline in the seats. You buy a heavy-duty truck for its ability to get the job done.
