Looks, both in and out, ride and tech. Looked at other brands no comparison.

All the above for me. My supervisor has a 2010 f150 lariet and my boss has 2010 (I think) Silverado. I have driven both and the Ford is nice but feels like your driving a cinder block down the road, slow, boring, somewhat comfortable, way to many buttons (big time safety hazard trying to find the right buttons while driving). The Chevy is extremely cheap inside, not that comfortable, not that good of a ride, but at least somewhat fun to drive. My RAM very comfortable, quick, inside quality, definitely looks (no competition), and definitely price so very easy choice.
Plus I have ALWAYS wanted a HEMI RAM so it was a no brainer for me.

I own a Challenger and I like to wear attire that says Dodge and MOPAR. Sometimes that may not reflect to well on the Marque when I'm driving my Prius or my Wife's Bimmer. I mean a Harley rider can put a sticker on any one of their other vehicles or wear HD attire when riding in the family car. But when it's winter and I wear my Challenger jacket or MOPAR shirt I would like to be seen getting into or out of a MOPAR product. That's probably the biggest reason I bought my Ram. Enjoy the Journey! Lou.

Number one reason was for looks, I can't stand the square front end on the GM and Fords, and Toyota well their new front end is just plain ugly.

Needed one for price. I like the look and power but i can say that about other trucks as well. Main reason I bought my last few Rams because of how much cheaper they were. Don't get me wrong I like the look and all plus for my newest one a 14 Ram 1500 express RC it was easy. It was pretty cheap and dodge makes the only nice RC 1500. As far as power I have driven some F150's and they had power too. Mainly it was the options and price paid that sold me the most. I am not even a Dodge guy like some people. I have never owned a dodge car. I always preferred okder 5.0 Mustangs when I was younger and now I have a 98 Trans Am and I wouldn't trade it for anything dodge makes.

#1 factor was performance. In the end not a deciding factor.

#2 factor was quality. I have concerns about all 3 manufacturers. Minus some points for one of the competitors.

#3 factor was looks. For us it's the interior that wins hands down. Chevy has some great interior features. Well set out and organized. A close second. I found I could learn to appreciate any of the 3 exteriors if I owned it. Right now, I think Ram looks best.

#4 discounts.

I'm 6'6" tall with a bad back. I've always driven a Dodge/Ram truck. But this time around I decided I as going to choose my new ride based on comfort of cockpit and ride. Period! I figured I love my Rams but I'm not gonna sacrifice my day to day comfort for brand loyalty. I sat in/drove everything. I was so glad the Tundra was uncomfortable (that thing be ugly!)- the Ford felt wrong the way the dash was laid out and the seats were hard- The Silverado was a mess inside. I sat in the Ram last -- it was so clearly the winner I didn't hesitate. I'd like to think that I was ready to choose another brand if it won the comfort test. The fact the Ram is the best looking truck is just plain icing.
