For me it was price and comfort. When I bought they were trying to sell and I got it for around 26K.
It rides like a car and it's very quiet in the cab (good exhaust).
The lifetime powertrain warranty figured into my decision too, but not in comparision to other brands - it was because in general dodge transmissions have really sucked and I wouldn't have bought a Dodge without that warranty.
While it does have a lot of HP and TQ, it tows less than the competition in almost every configuration. That makes all those numbers pretty useless for all but the boy racer types.
