[QUOTE=BostonBob;1124877]They have the EcoBoost and it sounded like an econobox. No V-8 rumble and if I closed my eyes, it could have been an Escort!. I sat in the rear seat and I was amazed at how cheap everything looked. I was really surprised. I have not been in a RAM for a while, but I think they are better than this. The Platinum's leather seats felt nice, but the other materials did not make me want the truck. Another disappointment was the ride quality. I was really surprised here, cuz I thought the Platinum was supposed to have a great ride.QUOTE]
This is my feeling. As a lifelong Ford guy I was fully ready to hand them over more of my hard earned money for an upgrade from my 2003 F150 Supercrew. It has been a flawless truck without issue BTW. After looking at the new Fords with both the 5.0 and the EcoBoost I was pretty much ready to buy, but I decided to go take a look at the 2013 Rams. First one I drove was a Hemi 6spd 4x4 with the 3.55. I found the interior very nice, much nicer than the Ford; however the powertrain was a disappointment. But given how nice the interior was I kept it on the list waiting for an 8spd Hemi to hit the lot. After driving an 8spd Hemi with both 3.55's and one with 3.92's I was blown away, all I can say now is that I Want This Truck! Power delivery was just as good if not better than the Ford combos and there is no comparison between the interiors.
I appreciate the OP's review of the two trucks. Go drive an 8spd hemi with 3.92's and let us know how it compares to a broken in EcoBoost, I am curious to know.
