I'd say get the gasser if you ever plan on owning a gasser again because after Rollin the Dmax you will think even the 6.2 is a pooch!
Obviously X55, M5, Denali you must have a garage. Keeps the truck warmer. Diesel warmup is about double the gasser. Plug it in though and it will be warm before you pull out of the garage.
Not sure what your 6.2 gets for mileage but my 6.2 ford is a gas suckin pig. 12mpg avg commuting.
17mpg avg with my bigger heavier big mud tire diesel. Diesel costs 10% more here and it gets gets almost 30% better mileage.
If you have the means get the diesel. Your X55 will look better behind it!!
Best response ever - Your X55 will look better behind it!! Decision made. I will be putting everything in place tomorrow for my bridge vehicle. Now, just need to wait for "Early 2014" to get the 2500HD with the Duramax.

Thanks everyone for the feedback and the perspectives.

Or you could get a 6.7 powerstroke now! There is nothing uglier with the exception of the tundra to the new gm products.

Since the actual discussion is complete, we can let this fall into a typical preference debate......

I guess I could see this coming from Texas. IMO, the King Ranch has an over the top interior dripping of dead cow. Too heavy of a leather smell, almost has to be fake and rough grained.
Might be attractive to the crowd that thinks cow sh!t and oil smell like money but it was a turn off for me. It also rode the roughest with not good sight lines.

Im not some crazy vegan and many others can do leather more tastefully.

I know I am late to to the party but you made the right decision. The Dmax will pull your X55 like a dream. I have towed my 45 with the 6.2 and Dmax and the 6.2 does fine the Dmax is that much better. The first time you hook up your X55 it will put a huge smile on your face and you will be happy your decided on the Dmax and 3/4 ton.

Have you heard of a lariat? That was a typical ignorant "everyone from Texas is a redneck cowboy" stereotype. did I say anything about king ranch?? I have a lot of time in both trucks, not just a test drive. The f250 rode better than my f150 did.
PS, thanks for the condescending a**wipe response
