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.

By percent to prior year, Ram full size sales outgrew the other two in 2016. Remember Ford was going against numbers in 2015 that was down due to shortage of frames.

Since I bought a new 1500 Ram will probably put the 8sp behind the 6.4 in the 2500 or put the 6.4 in the 1500..lol

I come from a town where the ugliest dogs win, and no kidding of the big 3 the Ram lot always has more trucks and sells more trucks, by a bunch. Coincidence? I think not.

Out of preference, and coming from an F150 to RAM, I couldn't justify the premium price tag that ford wants when I got a comparable if not better truck for much less switching to RAM. If there is one thing I dont miss about the F150 it's all the rattles and squeaks from the hard plastic, drove me nuts.

Ford drives like a dump truck, the coil back suspension was the best upgrade ever. To date Ford hasn't touched Rams 2009 numbers for HP 390, unless you get a HO Raptor$$. Even their 3.5 eco boost will only get you to 375, and again you will pay for it. Ram Hemi not only makes the best truck but it is also the least expensive. I don't include Raptor in the conversation, because that is a great truck. The OP just doesn't get it, Ram was already heads and shoulders above the field since 2009, thus the reason why Ram won truck of the year more then anyone else since.

That was my impression of the last few F-150's that I've driven. I'm not sure what happened with their ride quality over the years. My old '01 F-150 Lariat SuperCrew was a joy to run down the highway. The seats were comfortable, the interior was quiet, and the ride quality was awesome (for a truck).

The last truck of theirs I drove was a '17 XLT 4x4 SuperCrew with the 5.0L. I was not at all impressed. For a 1/2 ton truck with an MSRP of $49k...it shouldn't ride like a big rig.

My biggest gripe with ford and chevy for that matter when I was looking and pricing trucks is the fact that in order to get actual back doors that open aka super crew etc, they add another 3-5k, where as ram is QC 4 door from the get go. It was such a pain with my super cab F150 trying to hold the driver side door and back door in order to avoid the wind yanking them open and dinging another car while wrestling with a screaming toddler trying to get him out of his car seat. Much easier with my RAM..I just open the back door, it's like magic lolz
