March / April TruckTrend report on the competitors for truck of the year was a very interesting read. The last column of the article shows the attained testing numbers for the Ecoboost (V8 alternative as stated by TT) and the Hemi.
0-60mph, unladen, the Ecoboost edged out the Ram. Acceleration with a trailer 0-60mph, Ecoboost 15.7s, Ram 15 flat. In the 1/4 mile Ecoboost 20.5s @ 67.5mph and the Ram 20.0s @ 69.4mph.
Subjective? Maybe. Take heart in knowing that even though there will always be bow tie and blue oval pilots sporting Calvins in their rear windows, survey says...our trucks are the equal of or better than the competition nowadays.
