It will give out more N0x than the petrol version, but less hydrocarbons and less C02. As there are no pollution based taxes in the US from what I gather, so it should make little difference to the decision.
Considering these light duty commercial trucks are held to more lax emission standards than passenger cars and trucks, the gas and diesel likely are just as bad. Though the diesel won't have any particulates.
Suspect the Dodge diesel puts out more pollution than VW diesels.

You are concerned about the money, pollution may cost producers of pollution. You are NOT concerned about pollution, killing people with breathing problems & in the case of bad pollution, kills people who are healthy.
Yeah, lots of people are concerned about the money, pollution may cost producers of pollution.
Lots of ways at looking at things, diesels are better for the greater good, and will help reduce greenhouse gasses so we still have a planet to live on. On the flip side, if you live in a overpopulated city, on a hot dry day with no wind, apparently you'll get cancer and die. Things like smoking, drinking and firearms kill hundreds of thousands of people too, yet they are bought and consumed in vast quantities. Like I say, most "problems" are only problems if you make them out to be a problem.
I see what you mean essentialy, a gun is a tool to make the jobs of robbers and mass murderers easier, but if guns dissappeared, you'd notice a huge drop in mass murders, robberies, general crime and accidental deaths. It's difficult for a two year old to accidentally kill it's sibling with a baseball bat, and it's hard to murder 30 people with a penknife before someone stops you.
Anyway, best stick on topic before we get a ticking off!
