Default video comparison of ford, chevy and RAM by car and driver..

Found this random video about the big three's pickup trucks and there comparing them. one thing i don't understand is they say the RAM is the slowest of the bunch?! how can that be when pickuptrucks.com just did a shootout and the RAM beat both of these pickups in acceleration?? doesn't make much sense.. what do you guys think?

I didn't watch the video, did they compare trucks with similar rear diffs, and most importantly did the ram have an 8 speed?

Slowest? Most commercials shows vehicles speeding around empty roads. Well, where I drive, there's others cars all over the place and stop lights every 1/4 mile. You can only go as fast as the guy in front of you. I don't care if my vehicle can go over 80 or if it can get there in 6 seconds, I'm not going to need it. More reliable vehicle and better gas mileage? Yeah, that's what I need.
