I got to read most of this article last night. Good to see RAM beat the competition again. Still by far the best looking truck inside and out.

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?

Yeah, no one really likes the Chevy these days.

As for the 2.7 EcoBoost, just wait for the real world MPG numbers to start being realized. The F150 was a pig before the weight loss and now its not that much lighter than its competition. Thats still a WHOLE lot of truck for a tiny 2.7 to pull around. Those turboes will be boosting...alot.

I would have loved the Eco diesel... If offered in a sport
