my turning point between the two came down to seat comfort. the ford was a huge deal breaker for me. Still dealing with an old hip injury, the ford was just way too stiff in the wrong spots and seriously hurt me on only a 20km test drive. The ram however once I adjust it fits me like a hammock, couldnt be happier. I've never heard many complaints about the fords seats but for me they were terrible on my hip, in the end people just choose what suits them best
I have to agree though that something funky is going on in those ecoboosts that ford really needs to fix properly.
