F450 vs. Ram 3500 Aisin Equipped

Just came across this... seems as though the previous test wasnt using the Aisin equipped Ram, but the lower powered 68RFE equipped version.

Pretty impressive to say the least. However I will never own a Dodge again.

Why is that? Must of had some really bad luck. I have had great luck with my 2006. I would of bought a new Ram but pricing in my area was horrible, so I ordered a new 2014 F350. I am really looking forward to the new truck, but Ram has really made some good improvements. Hope I don't get bashed for saying that on here. Just my opinion.

That test was so bogus.
The Ford used was equipped with 4:30 rears, compared to 3:70 in the GM. I'm not sure what the Ram was using, but it wasn't 4:30-1
Total lie in performance advantage. I would love to see similar speced trucks in a test so it isn't so obviously slanted.
Just once, and I don't mean to single out Ford, but it would be nice to conduct on merit instead of insulting the consumers intelligence.

Personally, I would have no problem with the Ram. I owned one, and although it was a few years ago, the truck was tough as nails.

I would think the 4.30 rear end in the ford would give it a towing advantage over the dodge. I have had an '11 and '12 longhorn ram duallys and swore them off. My buddy has a '13 and it looks like a nice truck and does much better on fuel. The selectable exhaust brake and def gauge would be a nice feature for fords

the 4:30 in the Ford would give it a mechanical advantage over the Rams 4:10.

What are you talking about? The GM wasn't even part of this test. Did you even read the article?

As for the the test, the anemic GT32 turbo strikes again as the ford ran out of air at altitude again. The Ram puts out more power at altitude.

I think when they test the 450 next time, they'll be in for a surprised for sure. Especially since it will be an actual 450 not just a bigger 350.

I thought it was a pretty good test.. seemed to be one of the "more unbiased" ones. Both trucks seem to have their strong suites. Atleast they were up front and clearly stated that they knew the two vehicles had many differences.
