So I offered my thoughts.

The moral of the story: have your trolls spayed or neutered.

It is relevant that the Ram diesel give more milles per gallon than the gasoline Ford, in case this is true?

Diesel has been more expensive than gas for the last 10 years around here; it is usually around $0.40 - $0.70 but just today I saw $1.799 gas, $1.999 diesel.

Note about the test: The Auto Stop-Start was turned off for the 1500 mile city/hwy trip. Not sure what the logic was for that. Also the Ram had a fuel filling issue, so they just used the mpg calculations from the Ram itself, instead of their own calculations like they did for the other trucks. So the Ram mpg is in question. And they couldn't use the computers in all the trucks because the Toyota didn't have one. The editor stated they would retest the Ram using their own mileage measurements at a later date.
This is hilarious; they just did a test a month or so ago and stated that the Ram's DIC MPG was off (on the optimistic side) the most of any brand, somewhere North of 20%.

Hi surreal!!!



How is life treating you?

Glad you started an account at this Ford site, as a GM fan, just to come and greet me.
I guess you also miss me over there.

See you round.....Captain Irony

Not hard to figure out who this troll ( surreal ) is...

Nothing funny about one needing to create an account to stalk others.

Did you guys see the dyno results for these trucks?

That 2.7L EB is one stout engine! No denying that.

Sorry, late to post but thanks for starting this thread.

Did anyone also catch that the Ecodiesel refueling caused frothing so they couldn't accurately brim off the tank so resorted to just accepting the trip meter's fuel economy readings...
That's another anomaly that has to be taken into account but hey, I'm not going to ignore the diesel's superior economy in the test.

It's clear that this comparison was more than just straight out fuel economy winner,
it seems more about the balance of fuel economy loaded and unloaded versus performance loaded and unloaded. That tends to be come very subjective in terms of what buyers expect versus empirical data.

If F150 also gets a diesel of its own, does that mean the lighter weight and added gearing then makes F150 king over the Ram Ecodiesel???
Watch this space.


Oh, and as for supposed eroded market share, I'm sure Ford will be out to sell as many F Trucks as it can this year, +50K sales in January with fresher trucks and higher ATPS than a year ago says Ford is loaded for bear this year but will it be happier tucking in behind GM's totals while taking higher ATP.....Can't wait to see Crew Cab Raptor's impact on sales.

Sadly, ever since Mike Levine jumped to Ford Trucks, anything from PUT praising Ford rings just a little bit hollow.
