As to durable, I think the 3 cyl will last longer, and use less fuel. I think the overall controls are slightly better as to operator comfort and ease of use, especially in the 8 sp trans. I think the additional weight helps as well. I believe that in all day use, the 3 cyl will win over the 4 cyl, but not by much.
As to what I would buy... a 3cyl every time. They cost more, but sell for more.
If money were a problem, however I would not hesitate to use a 4 cyl, but the 3cyl diesels are like fleas as to availability, and the 4 cyl diesels are like unicorns....
Summary,,, a very slight lead and VERY strong preference to the 3 cyls.
But I would have the same argument on a 4600 vs a 3cy 4000 as well. And then the 4610 vs the 4600....
