for explicit analysis : Lsdyna is far better than any other software . Its ease of building any model and robustness is expectational, Material library is extensive .

I know a few people who use Radioss. I believe it is on par with LS-Dyna and Pam-crash (VPS) for explicit analysis. Abaqus would be another option that is a little more user friendly as well. 

But yes LS-Dyna arguably has the most potential within modeling techniques, materials, contacts etc. But LS-Dyna can also be fairly unstable in certain cases and not thoroughly documented material models and other things like that.

I believe LS-Dyna is the cheapest option currently but it was just acquired by ANSYS so that may change.
