They can get mighty expensive if you start loading on the features, trims and engines. Those high trim levels could have trouble competing with other comparable vehicles, mostly Ford.

The $51,870 starting price is for a 4×2 Crew Cab Laramie Limited equipped with the 5.7-liter V8 engine. The 4×4 model will cost $55,375. Also offered is a the more fuel-friendly 3.0-liter diesel engine in the Laramie Limited. Diesel models start at $54990 for 4×2 models and $58,495 for 4×4 models.

You quoted prices for the Laramie Limited not the Rebel. I don't follow your logic though regardless. Pickups are mostly bought on die hard brand favouritism and besides the Big 3 half tons are so excellent right now you'd be hard pressed to comprehensively prove one is head and shoulders above the rest...

That's disapointing. I was hoping to get one. But it seems it might push it beyond my price range with the options I want.

Plus there's only so much difference in price, a difference that wont even come close to overpowering the power of brand loyalty or what brand(s) a person prefers and what that brand offers.

And it is a long-term decision, can't get a few thousand get in the way of that.

Brand loyalty is huge. I think one of the only ways to pull people in from other brands is to offer something that is equal or better than the competition at an equal or lesser price.

that's basically it among other factors but those are right up there with motivations to get someone to cross over. at least its what would have me looking at the competition.
