As a reader of this forum, you are undoubtedly aware of the existence of the Ford F-150 EcoBoost. It is the chief rival of the Ram 1500 Ecodiesel.

With the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, the Ford F-150 will cost you $35,500. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel will come up to $37,915. That means that the Ram 1500 costs $2,615 more than the Ford F-150 EcoBoost.

The Ford F-150 has a lot more horse power than the Ram 1500; 365 hp and 240 hp respectively. But in terms of torque, the two trucks both record 420 lb-ft.

The last measure is fuel economy. The Ford F-150 comes in at 23 MPG, while the Ram 1500 comes in at 28 MPG.

So the two trucks are quite well matched. I have a feeling it will take a lot to take the Ford F-150 off its pedestal though. That is one popular truck.

You know what they say about ford!

Found On Road Dead! :D
It'll be interesting to see how the diesel ram compares to the ecoboost.
It will, the ecoboost setups are really good. I was impressed with the V6TT setup in the police interceptors. It could be even game for both.
the ecoboost are a nice choice. I still prefer diesel though.
Same, especially when you mix that with a dually rear = epic.
