    Ecoboost f-150. I was suprised at how hard it pulled on the Hemi with the 3:92. But it bested the Gm with the 6.2, the Ram 1500 with the hemi, and the nissan Titan. Was interestign because they threw in the baby boost f 150 and also the Ram 1500 V6 for comparison purposes..

    Problem is you have to spend about 6-7k more for an equally fitted F150 and not as nice interior or ride for a slightly quicker 1/4 mile, no thanks.

    I think the race would be much tougher at sea level.

    I saw that. They have some interesting match-ups, but overall, I think TFLT is kind of lame. Since they are 1 mi above sea level, their times are typically so slow. I thought the Ram did well to beat the GM. I like Kunes Country much better. They have best of 3, and swap drivers.

    Just think if it would have been the HO 3.5 EB - in the Limited F150.....

    I forgot to mention that I bought my Ram for the best in class interior, ride and bang for the buck, not to beat the competition by 1 second in the 1/4 mile

    True, maybe it would have been closer at sea level, maybe it would have been farther apart a little higher. And if the GM had a lower rear axle ratio it would have beat them all, who knows, All in good fun though! Hard to beat a Hemi for bang for the buck thats sure

    The HEMI Ram is the nicest looking truck by far with the GMC being second. Ford is the worst looking, based on styling, i would pick the Nissan over the ford.

    All the new trucks are plenty fast for me. If I need real speed I will jump on my motorcycle.

    I think all the new full size trucks look good, except the Nissan.

    Hard to rank them but here is my opinion based on stock form (no mods). Everyone has an opinion, here is mine.

    1. Ford
    2. Ram
    3. Chevy
    4. Toyota
    5. Nissan
