Used to be a joke: What time is it when 1 Ford passes another Ford?= 10 past 10 (tin past tin.) Now it's true. Ford, made from recycled beer cans. Seriously, all decent trucks, I'll stick with a Ram.

I wish that the auto magazines would do true comparisons apples with apples. They always seem to throw those oranges into the picture. If they would of used the 5.7L HEMI vs the 3.0L Eco Diesel, the outcome would have been the Ram winning hands down over the Ford and Chevy in most all categories. They try to let the truck buying public think that the products are close and you make your decision on the vehicle. They don't want to lose the advertising $$$! Right now the Ram is still the BEST Truck in the marketplace!

They even like the mid level (cloth) Ram interior over the Ford and Chevy that had a higher grade leather interior. MT would have lost their mind with a loaded out Ram leather interior.
The fan boys of the F150 are having fits over this test because this all new aluminum F150 was suppose to be the shizit.

Hi All,

I think its funny that the Eco-Diesel blew the Eco boost out of the water on the economy. 22 hwy VS 28 hwy is not a little bit that is laying a whooping down on the Ford. Shoot the Hemi gets close to what the Eco-boost was doing.

Good to see that the radical 2015 F-150 redesign was such a resounding success against the Ram whose features were available a year earlier as part of a yearly update rather than a new generation or even mid-cycle refresh. Here is the full article BTW:

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...let_silverado/

It was actually somewhat stacked against the Ram since it was a CC with Rambox, diesel, and every option that adds weight besides the 6.4' bed; whereas the Ford was an extended cab.


They just ain't likin' the Chevy are they?
