Hello! I am considering a new truck and can't decide on the Ford or the Dodge?
I would like to know everyones opinons and reason why you might think the Ford is better.

Thanks

FORD!!!!


Dodge has a great motor, but the packaging sucks!!!! I have never liked durdge's cheap interior, the looks of them, and the tranny isn't as good as a torqshift.

Check out the Ford vs. Chevy test, Dodge wasn't included because they have a lower towing capacity.
