Default Ford Ecoboost

My girlfriends mom came into a predicament in which she needed to buy a new truck. She currently had a 2013 Ecoboost and everyone was always ragging on her about her Ford. So I took her to the Ram dealer and told the salesman she wanted a 2014 laramie longhorn hemi with the 8 speed and airride and boy did she ever fall in love. Needless to say she factory ordered a new longhorn. When I finally got to drive a similar one from off the lot, that 8 speed is AMAZING. Dead stop to 100km/h happened in a flash and also gave us all whiplash, and matting the truck from 80km/h STILL threw us back into our seats and took off to 120+ in no time flat. Makes me want to get a new truck just for that 8 speed transmission. What an improvement over the 6 speed.
Plus the airride is pretty cool too.

And I've also raced her once in her ecoboost from 0 to matting the pedal and I beat her like nothing. (She didn't and still doesn't know about the turbo spooling trick). I'm a little afraid to race her when she gets her 2014.

But anyways a die hard Ford girl was just converted to the wonderful world of Ram
