For those rear gears, tow rating is correct... Ford played it smart by claiming to make the test fair by giving all trucks the highest gearing possible. Then, the new torqshift with the really low first gear made up for the 3:31 gears on the Ford. The Chevy had 3:73, so that saved it, but the Dodge was stuck with 3:42 gears and a somewhat high first gear. That explains most of the showings.


BTW, this is already being discussed here. https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...ad.php?t=97238

First off, I think the new Ford is gonna be pretty sweet but, having a first year production truck like my 6.7L Cummins, AINT NO WAY I would ever buy a truck that has a new never be release power plant/trans in it again. I sure hope the real world use issue are worked out for it.

Now on to the video, it WOULD have been entirely more believable if the one who made the video didn't have a dog in the fight. Its a Ford Promo Video, FORD WILL win. IF the New Ram Truck had made it just guess who would have won! I guess what Im saying is that its just advertisement, I am by now way Bashing any of these trucks. They will all have some strong points and weaknesses, but if they all work together who is going to stop us as one?
I wish the big 3 all the luck in the world, but can't wait to see these new trucks on the road, and read about all this by a 3rd party. I can't wait to see what Cummins does to keep up with all these new published numbers, who else sees a race to 1000FT LBs off the show room floor?

Anyone notice the Dodge instruments about half way through the pull?

It showed 4000 rpms and ZERO oil pressure.

Well just think of it this way, shouldnt the ford beat the dodge with the advertised power the two trucks make? 350 vs 390, and 650 vs 735...

Also keep this in mind... Dodge is no dummy. Why release a new engine at the same time the other two companies release theirs? That would take attention away from theirs... They will release their new motor next year possibly and be the only new engine design of the year, cuz you can bet ford wont change anything, and chevy probably wont either.

Why do you say that?
Historically, both Ford & GM have upgraded their numbers almost every model year.
