Motor Trend 2011 Superduty VS 2010 RAM

Some good reading. Fuel mileage is pretty close.

This test seems a little more logical IMO. Unlike the one Ford did. Looks like ford may have hit it on the head hopefully

34 MPG

If a ford super duty gets 34 MPG HWY with a tail wind I will buy it. Now for the real stuff, wait 6 more months to find the the truth. I like what I hear but it all sales stuff.

They didnt list the weights of the trucks but im pretty sure the Ford is a bit heavier then the Dodge. That was a pretty good write up. Once again though like in the other tests would of been sweet if they would of loaded up more on weight of the trailers.

In the reading they actually did mention the weight. The ford weighed in just under 500 lbs more than the dodge.

I agree, compare these trucks fully loaded. Personally, I think the Ford will walk on the current 6.7 Cummins.
