Dodge has a Raptor-like Ram that may be available to dealerships in a limited amount of numbers soon. It, and the Ram, will probably never see anything like the 6.1 or 6.4 Hemi.

I'd still have to take the Ford over the Dodge.

In this video it looks like it's about to tip over at the 16sec mark. I'm not really sure why they are trying to show off with that truck in the sand, the Ford would run circles around it all day out there. They are two totally different trucks, Fords made to go wide open over bumps and such, Dodge looks like it's made for mudding. Dodge has a nasty sounding exhaust note to it too, really raspy.

plus with a diesel u get all that low end torque which IMO would be better for crawling over shit

The powerwagon and Raptor were designed for two completely different types of 4wheeling. Dodge has no real competitor with the raptor. The only thing the Raptor and power wagon share is they are both 4x4s. The power wagon would get its ass handed if it tried to run with the raptor in the dunes and the raptor probably wont do as well in rock crawling and heavy duty flexing axle stuff. A straight axle rig simply cannot run as hard in the desert as a IFS truck can.

Cartone is thinkin exactly the same as me teo totally different rigs raptor would poop on the powerwagon in some sand dunes but viceversa down a muddy trail with big rocks plus the raptor would suck as a regular vehicle on road slow widder than an f150 lower towing and payload yet a power wagon on the road is quick and still perfectly able to work mopar or car
