If these were the only two choices to make out of all the truck brands out there; I'd want to give that Ford Ecoboost a try. My old 96 Chevy wasnt too bad. My 97 Dakota's tranny gave out. My 99 Ram was better but drank like a fish. My 2006 Titan was a beast but blew rear axle seals. My 2009 Chevy Tahoe was underpowered. My 2010 Armada was too pretty to take fishin and huntin. Thank god this is only a what if question; so I'm happy to say "It's nice to be back in a Ram"! I take my Ram over anything right now hands down!

Having a ls1 trans am and a 09 turbo cobalt as and having traded in a 02 traiblazer for my ram you would think Chevy. but honestly after spending over a year doing used car recon at a ford I am at a Volvo dealer now. I would have to vote ford all the way but only 2011 and up. I have a loaded on f150 lariat for a loaner while.my ram is being fixed and it gets horrible gas mileage and just isn't as nice as the rams, Chevy, or GMC trucks of its year. now the almost New f150's I have got to.drive both eco boost and 5.0 have a lot of tuning potential for real power and the interior( their ac seats dare some of the best I have tried) that sync system is awesome. They look good and let me just say the Raptor is a beast as much as I love my Ram if I didn't car about gas mileage and had the cash I would definitely have gotten one. Dodge still gives you the best truck for the cash though. I mean a express regular cab is under $25k out the door Herr in Houston.

FORD, without a doubt. My Ram is only the second Chrysler product I have ever owned. I had a 1973 340 Duster 4 speed in high school that was just plain bad ass. I have allways perfered Fords first then Mopars, followed by EZ GO golf carts, Huffy bicycles, LaFleur roller skates and lastly GM products! I still have an '02 Explorer Sport, '95 Cobra and a 1966 Mustang coupe. Contrary to what people say, I have never ever had one of my Fords leave me stranded. Had Ford offered the warranty that the Ram has, a F150 would be in my driveway now instead of my Ram. I am very happy with my new Express and as long as the quality and stylish design stays, I probally will buy another.

ugh, i hate chevys so much it hurts. Have driven an owned many fords and they have done well for me... I beat the crap out of my ford pickups, they kept going. Had one chevy and it looked like a blind person put it together. So much wind blowing threw the closed windows... garbage. I have to say I test drove a 2004 RAM and did not like it.... ended up with a SRT -4... loved it!! But man oh man did they do a great job with this 4th gen RAM. Best truck money can buy!!

Out of these two choices Ford for sure because up until this June I was a Ford guy plus I'd rather stick my thumb up my butt then drive a Chevy. As of right now I am pretty damn impressed with this Ram. As far as the other brands the Titan looks weird and Tundra is allright pretty comfortable truck and they are built in San Antonio TX actually more American then some of our Rams Chevys and Fords lol.

I've been a hardcore dodge fan since I could drive. But the new fords have me thinking just a little bit. My wife really likes the 2012 white Harley edition. I like that you can tune fords if you want. Also just started reading and not sure if it's true but guys are getting SC's for there fords and still keeping there full truck warranty. If this is true that is a major selling feature for me. In the end though it's still a Ford lol.
