The F150 is an extended cab and the Ram is a full crew cab.
The F150 is aluminum and a lot less weight than the Ram.
So, is the review apples to apples?

I noticed the same thing. Then when the reviewer made his complaint about the ford's exhaust, the video was from an ed. Even in a Ford crew cab match I'm sure the f150 probably has better 0-60, & I'm good with that. My ram looks better and gets better fuel mileage ; )

Its not a apples to apples but you get the trucks you are given to review and try to make the best of what they have.

Besides if you want fast, why are you looking into trucks, I am waiting for the Ike gauntlet review.

F-150 AlumECO 23 MPG hwy - not bad I think Ford is playing the slow game.

It takes a long while to retool from steel bodies to aluminum bodies and it doesnt take much to change out drive train and engines. So if they switch to a diesel engine they already have a aluminum body and it will take the competition at lest a couple of years to catch up.

Finally did the eco's run of the Ike Gauntlet

TIME: 9:03:71 MPG: 6.1

I am curious to see how well the new Titan XD will do with this run.


I'm quite sure the XD will blow the doors off the Ecodiesel, but that is not a fair comparison. Ram is a 3.0 V-6 and the Titan XD is a 5.0 V-8. It's not in the same playing field. The XD will most assuredly have multiple problems with it's new model release. It's an all new body design & an all new engine that's never been on the market anywhere...just saying.
