I hate to break it to you, but all the brands are getting cheaper. Going to a fiat to get a more quality truck is laughable. Only guy I know with a new 6.4 2500 had to take it back to the dealer twice in the first few hundred miles.

Ford 6.2 vs Ram 6.4

Not sure which is better, but I prefer the Ram overall

Any advantage of going with a dodge vs Ford F-250 gasser?

Asking which one to get will give you opinions all over the place, and everyone has a buddy who has either had to take it to the dealer a million times or who has a million miles on it and never changed the oil. The big 3 all make a similar capable, similar quality, similar priced vehicle.

If you've always liked Fords and don't have a bad taste in your mouth over what the last one did to you get another Ford, you will like it better than the Ram. If you hate your current Ford and it did you wrong, get the Ram you'll like it better than the Ford.

I know three guys that went from Duramax's to the 6.4. They LOOOOVE the 6.4. Keep in mind that they LOOOOOVED the Duramax when they had them also. That's how most folks are I think.

From my friends experience get a 6.4 ram with 4.10s and not 3.73s. My 2015 Silverado 6.0 truck will out tow his 2014 6.4 Ram even though I am 50+ HP lower on paper. The GM has 4.10s and a lower 1st in the tranny though so getting the load moving is a big play there. Watch the TFL trucks or whatever they are called for the IKE gauntlet test.

Sweet. Do you have one?
We bought my wife a 15 2.7 a year ago. It had 25k and now has almost 55k. It gets pretty respectable mpgs for a full size that can still tow ~8k. Lie o meter usually says around 18 mpg with mostly town driving. Last highway trip it said over 20. We really like it so far.

Insurance said it's a total loss

There's a discrepancy between the truck being a long bed and a short bed. It's a long bed but state farm has it as a SHORT

I have to prove its a long bed before they discussed payout

Nice truck but you’re gonna miss the power. Because I’ve had both and the Ford straight walks the fucking dog on that bowtie.

I've never driven a 3.5, but the power delivery on our 2.7 is impressive. I also have a 6.2 powered 2017 F250 company truck. It's got plenty of power, but the little 2.7 pulls from a lower RPM.

It would be cool if they made a 3.5 ecoboost super duty, or heck even a 5.0 ecoboost :D

They do it's just a 6.7 EcoBoost :smokin:

The new 7.3 should shake things up.
