Do we know the DEF tank capacity and the rate of consumption? I see RAM had the good sense to place the DEF cap right under the fuel cap for easy filling.

The larger fuel tank is only on the gas models. The diesel has that 8-gal DEF tank which eliminates the larger fuel tank option. In any case, 26 gal of diesel will cost roughly the same as 32 gal of gas and will provide roughly the same range.The current models come standard with 26 gallons with a $75 32 gallon option. Money well spent.
I would say the biggest benefit to a larger tank isn’t necessarily the increased range, although it is beneficial. The positive for me would have to be the ability to fill up where I want, at possibly a better price. I have a 26 gallon tank in both my Ford 6.7 pickups (short box) and I know I would enjoy some extra fuel capacity because when towing heavy it’s pretty much a 150-200 miles between fill ups. It’s not bad empty, but still is kind of a drag that I have to fill up some places and it’s $.25 to .50 a gallon more.Depends on the amount of fuel you use. If you tow you will use more.
While I'm at it, how is a "bigger fuel tank money well spent". Shouldn't sit anymore than 2-3 hours in any vehicle unless you are capable of doing yoga flex and then please don't. Keep your eyes on the road. Too many truckers with blood clots in their legs.
As it is I can drive all the way to my family (6 hours) and back on a tank of fuel (pulling fumes at the end). That's more than enough range in most areas. Those of you out in the long range well I'm truly sorry.
