So Ford revealed the 2018 F150 today. It gets a new grille, headlights, and bumper. This after being all new in 2015. What does RAM get? A teaser a while ago that barely shows anything. RAM is a great truck, but it is in it's 9th model year and the 5th since the new front. I still haven't seen anything 100% certain that 2019 is going to be a refresh. Considering that RAM and Jeep are the only things keeping the lights on at FCA they really need to get their ass in gear. It's still a great truck, but it needs refresh. I just hope the don't try to make it too squared off like Ford or Chevy.
Ford is also putting a 3.0 diesel in the F150. I have no interest in a small diesel in a half ton, but I can't wait to see how it compares to RAM's.

Well now that I bought my new Ram they can change it up.lol
I myself really like the look of the Rams and was not looking for a change.

I'm patiently waiting for the Hellcat engine to wind up on the options list

It seems like the f-150 gets a new grill/headlight/bumper almost every year. I dont really like any of them. Maybe dodge had the mentality of "its a good looking design and more profit the longer you run it." It has to be expensive to re-tool a factory that often.

While a replacement for the current generation is loooong overdue, I'm still really happy with my 2014.

I like the new F150 redesign. If only they weren't that expensive I would jump ships.

But Still happy with my 2015 so far

Even dated, the Ram still looks better.

This is why they charge so much.


Although....I do kinda like that my 12' still looks basically like a new 2017 model

The biggest issue its still a ford............ and the newer grills out on the limited and rebel are extremely ugly. I think ram would have to knock it out of the ball park to get the majority of us to atleast look at a change

You are either buying a truck for utility or a fashion statement if keeping up with the Joneses is your main worry.

Quite frankly I like that RAM does not chase the 5 year refresh cycle like the other makes. RAM knows they are probably always going to be playing third fiddle in sales no matter what and return on investment of shorter refreshes is not there. Given the last 2-3 years has been their best sales years yet, does not look like it is hurting them by taking the long road.

If your circle of influence and peer pressure is giving you crap for having a RAM, need to find better people to hang around that are less shallow.
