  1. Imagine the maintence on the air suspensions for a common person lol but i prefer Ford because they have been number 1 selling truck for decades which is a reason for they stability fuel economy and comfort. Every Ford I had runs good but the 4.0 and 6.4s but everything else in fords are the best specially the F-Series Trucks are best. I dont care about gadgets in the truck because your driving it now putting it in no show room lol these comments basically about people liking the gadgets inside and a tool box that takes up 40% of the bed which makes the bed useless to haul big stuff lol if you cant afford to buy a tool box for the front then say that lol Ford trucks always out last and out power a ram lol

  2. I have the 21 Ram Limited. I did give F150 a try in 2001 and it kept blowing out spark plugs which was a real downer since I had just past the warranty date and only 25K on the odometer and the extended warranty but Ford and their extended warranty both said they did not cover spark plugs. I argued it was a head and they did not care. I even wrote the Company a big complaint letter. So in 2016 I had under 50K on it and drove into a Nissan Dealer and drove out with a Titan PR diesel. I really liked the interior and looks of the truck, before I bought the truck my manager warned me not to ever get a Nissan he heard so many horror stories about them.. It turned out he was right. It spent way too much time in the shop, seems like a weekly visit and a lot of overnights or weeks off.
    So I picked it up once after a weekly left the dealer service department got another CEL a block after leaving and drove it to a Ram Dealer and traded my PR in for a Ram Limited in May of 21, it's now Dec 21, 2,500 miles no problems yet except the gas cap door pops open whenever it wants to.. even when it has plenty of fuel in the tank!

  3. Not a truck guy, but I drive them all the time doing dealer accessories work.
    I like the sound and looks of the Ram (a better comparison would've been the Limited Laramie vs the Platinum F150), however the F-150 has the most comfortable seat (I'm 6'3") and is faster.
    For my money, it would be a Ram 1500 Laramie with the 9in info-tainment screen (more hard buttons- less menus). Either sport or night package for appearance- all for right around $60k US
    That being said, the Ford is really nice in Platinum trim- just too expensive!

  4. Worst truck comparison video I have ever seen. They did nothing with the trucks to show what they can do. Just driving around talking about the trucks and giving their opinions. These two look like they should be reviewing hybrid hatchback cars.

  5. I love me my new RAM 1500 Limited. I had a long 6 month wait before getting it, but I can't say enough good things about it. It matches me and my personality perfectly! It sure has some downsides, the gas mileage being the biggest one, but I love that big V8 so much that it only bothers me at the gas station. If I could have a say on the newer Ram models, I would want a full hybrid, and something like the Power Onboard from the Fords. The eTorque thing is really cool, and I am happy that it's there, but a full hybrid or even a stronger version of eTorque would make the Ram such a better truck IMO. Everything else is just fantastic! I am looking forward to my next 5 years or so to really push this thing

  6. Here's the ultimate question which vehicle has more made in China or Mexico parts? My 2011 FX4 is still with me and I have 140k km. The rotors were perforated after going through salt and brine during the winter. Actuators sending air to different vents failed a few times. The blower motor had an electrical device which I replaced and I forget the name of the component. The cost me was something like $40 and made in Mexico.. So my personal problem with many cars and vehicles is the small components that fail because they are made in China and Mexico. Given that every time something has broken in my truck it either has made in Mexico or China it becomes discouraging. Also the radio failed (made in Mexico) I replaced the speakers and the radio (kenwood deck). The quality of these small components are not as good as made in Canada or USA but that too has changed for the worse. At close to 100k I'd rather buy something used given that people can't drive on winter roads. Insurance companies don't pay for accelerated depreciation due to accidents where I'm located. The price of gas is going up and having a truck for non truck use is ridiculous! Unless you tow or need trucks for work I'd pass. The metal in these trucks seem to rust easily because unlike the old trucks of old much of the metals are recycled or thin. Not sure about aluminium metals as far as repair or long term durability. Turbo or non-turbo would be something to consider from a rebuild point of view. Oh I almost forgot the seat heater went as well shorted into my butt cheeks and I replaced myself. The biggest expense was on the 4×4 wheel engagement device sorry forgot what that device is called the repair was $1,000 plus. Apparently water goes into the seal and it doesn't engage. So again all vehicles are great off the lot but long term North American manufactures sub out to other countries and that's the issue for me. The wonderful company "FORD" after replacing my rotors at 20,000 km because they developed holes from salt. The next winter I was at a muffler shop they looked at my brakes and deemed them not safe. I made the decision to have them repaired where the vehicle was since some parts were already dismantled. I brought the rotors to the Ford dealer where the truck was purchased. Service manager stated he would not provide me with any rotors or a good will gesture because the vehicle was serviced elsewhere. Ford agreed with this policy and while I understand there thinking it still doesn't take away that rotors failed twice. A mechanic has their CFQ certificate of qualification and should have no bearing who takes the rotors off. I should have had them toe the truck at Fords expense in hind site.

    Sorry long rant and kinda all over the place but that has been my experience with my truck. I still have not had any issues with the engine or turbo's but I don't drive it much either. 10 years 140,000 km so at least that's a positive for now. The Automotive industry cannot keep going to China or Mexico and other countries and then assemble vehicles with no issues.

    Make simple trucks with no stupid gimmicks and less electrical nonsense. A simple great naturally aspirated engine no navigation, Apple, Google anything. If you have a great sounding engine that should be music to your ears.

  8. You guys must be sponsored by Ford! You glossed over the 15 inch screen of the Ram which revolutionized the interior of trucks. Ford has many great features but you didnt even mention the interior of the Ram (including that great screen). Seemed too bias in one direction to judge but what do I know just watching this video.

  9. I m a truck guy, an 18 Laramie Longhorn Limited Loaded but to be honest I’m going to have to get rid of this and get an F150 platinum with the 350 eco boost hybrid hemi is killing me with gas mileage!
