It is liking throwing gas on a fire. GM reminds me of Mike Castle, or Lisa Murkowski, they cannot accept defeat. So you gotta find a way to defeat your opponent at whatever cost. That is fine. At the end of 250,000 miles you tell me which engine is holding up better. There is a reason why Ford is the number one for fleet owners, because of reliability and easy on the operator. I don't make this stuff up, the work force does. So comparing apples to oranges. If all it can do is get you there faster is all, then so be it, but I always say "going no where fast..." They say the tire size wasn't much difference, well what were they? The ford comes in three different tire sizes.
But wait, awww, GM couldn't compare apples to apples, because they know longer have the 4500 or larger chassis'. The F450 is built for towing and built for long miles to the working man. Again compare 4.1 to 4.1 or 3.73 to 3.73's. Also, just compare a 1 ton to a 1 ton. Again, you can jibber jab all you want, and gloat and stick out your chest and beat on it, but the fact of the matter is, Ford didn't take a handout!!!!
This test is like me going out and testing a Quadtrac Case IH to an Articulate John deere in Similar Horsepower. I can guarantee, in a plowing contest, the quadtrac will smoke any wheel tracked tractor. So come back when you have an apple to apple comparison.
I want a test between fords 6.7 and IH's 6.4 for real world work environment. That is what I am waiting for. I wanna see if ford made the right move or not and being in comparable chassis.
But all in all, sorry, come again when you have a real side by side test.
Why farm half when you can FARMALL!
Give fools their gold, and knaves their power;
Let fortune's bubbles rise and fall;
Who sows a field, or trains a flower,
Or plants a tree, is more than all.- Whittier.
