This of course, was a battle between the Fordís Power Stroke V8 diesel, which churns out 440 horses and 860 lb-ft of torque and the Ramís Cummings straight six, a motor pushing 370 hp and a peak torque of 800 lb-ft. Predictable as the result may be, the fight is still entertaining to watch.

I thought the CUMMINGS had 850 torque which is why Ford came out with 860.

I'm not defending the Cummins or denying the Powerstroke's superiority, but that video didn't really prove anything. There are better articles out there...

pickuptrucks.com did a test between the two as well. Here is the chart from their article on the speed and distance between the 2.

Why is this a Ram 3500 against an F-450? Why did they not use an F-350? Isn't that 4:10 gears vs. 4:30's?

Because it is the strongest/beefiest light duty application of each manufacturer. Since RAM doesn't make a 4500 light duty, Ford uses the 3500. I guarantee you if RAM had a 4500 light duty, Ford would be using it for these comparison tests.

Exactly, it's supposed to be the most capable pickup vs. the most capable pickup from either brand. Now if they were putting the 2500 against the F350 that wouldn't be a fair comparison.

So you mean the F-350 is not equal to a Ram 3500? Is the Ram 4500 considered a medium duty truck and the F-450 not?
