I was in the same situation...It came down to a 2011 Ford F-150 Lariat 4x4 6.2L or the 2011 Dodge Ram Sport 5.7L with 3.92 gears...I really loved the Ford, that 6.2L is legit, but they would not come down off of $45,000...I just could not see paying that much for a half ton-gas engine truck...I drove the 5.0L Ford, but wasn't impressed with the power, reminded me of my 2009 GMC Sierra 5.3L...The Dodge rides way better than the Ford due to the new coil suspension as opposed to the OLD leaf spring setup...That Hemi will get it with the 3.92 gear set-up....and the "cheap" interior reputation that Dodge had is no more with the new Ram, much better interior...I have no complaints what so ever choosing my new Hemi Sport over the 2011 Ford F-150 Lariat 4x4 6.2L.
