Is Ford concerned
 
I can't help but notice all of the new Rams that are parked in the driveways of my neighborhood. It definetly out numbers the Fords. I know Ford has been the number one selling truck for a long time now and I can't help but wonder if Dodge is trying to make an attempt on breaking their streak?:4-dontknow: Just saying.

Ram has a long way to go to catch up to Ford. Hell, Ram has a long way to go to catch GM.

I hear that Ford is going to produce aluminum body panels for the newest model trucks...my nefew is working for the plant in upstate NY that will be making them. Nice not to have body parts rusting...not sure about the rest of the truck though...

If you look at the big picture yes I agree because they both make larger heavy duty trucks and sell a lot of fleet vehicles. But I wonder how the numbers would be on the light trucks?

I agree with what's been said. Ram has a LONG way to go to even get into the ballpark of the other 2, but you wouldn't know it depending on where you live. I live in Florida and the vast majority of trucks you see on the road are Fords, especially the newer ones. I just got back from Alaska and I couldn't believe that Dodge seems to be the truck of choice there. I've never seen so many 4th Gens on the road before.

I know that a lot of fleet companies in the Alberta oil patch are switching to the Ram as their vehicle of choice for the light duty trucks, but the HD trucks are still primarily F350s. Chrysler has a long way to go to catch up to Ford, but they're on the right path with the police cruisers and fleet sales.

When Ram starts selling themselves to the Fleet buyers, it will be the Tradesman that they buy, unless Ram has a large over run on another model & gives the Fleet buyers a discount on those vehicles

Caltrans buys mostly 3/4 ton pickups, this was the last time that Dodge won the contract

My neighbourhood has ton of GMC/ Chev's, then way too many fords, around 8 Rams (1 guy owning a brand new 3500 cummins for his massive fifth wheel and 1500 for daily driver). and one toyota :LOL:
