The Fords go from 935 ft/lbs down to 750 when you go to a cab/chassis currently. Reason being is that the EPA mandates that both trucks emit the same amount of emissions and they consider the c/c trucks more likely to have a bed with higher weight/wind resistance installed and therefore have to use less fuel to produce less emissions. I read that there's some slight mechanical differences in the Ford versions, around the turbo and such.

I bought a non c/c truck for the first time this go round, not because of the increased power but the bed I wanted installed would not fit on a c/c truck (60" cab to axle) - it needed a 56" c/a.
