Here are the sales numbers for 2014. (They have been like this for a long time)

1. Ford F-series - 753,851
2. Chevy Silverardo - 529,755
3. Ram - 439,789
4. Toyota Camry - 428,606
5. Honda Accord - 388,374
6. Thru 10. All cars.

So I call a 'Bogus' statement.

Ford trucks historically out sell Ram trucks. That is a fact jack.

I guess a lot of people do not know better...ugh
No argument with any of the above. I guess I could bring up McDonalds...Naw.

How about showing recent 350/3500SRW sales figures and 350/3500 Dually sales figures.

Despite the numbers, here in AZ, Ram seems to dominate. At least that's what it seems like.

Ram outsells GM in the 3500 category. That means that guys that want a tough towing machine are either buying Ford or Ram.

For 50 years the conversation was Ford and Chevy. Dodge wasn't even in the debate. They were somewhere in the conversation with International Harvester. I actually drove a 3/4 ton International pickup as a ranch foreman in west Texas in the 70's. It was a great truck, just ugly as heck.

Even after they acquired the Cummins engine (90-91 ish), they couldn't quiet seem to get the whole package together. It took them several years before they offered a crew cab diesel pickup. I knew one rock mason that was such a die hard dodge guy, and wanted a CC diesel so bad, he had one custom built by some after market shop.

I have to say that the last 5 years, I find the Rams very appealing, but i just haven't yet taken the plunge. I've owned many Ford diesels and a one Chevy diesel. I would buy either one of them again in a heartbeat.

Of course you do, not so far to drag them across the border.

After all these years in RV forums I should know better than to post in a "what's the best truck" thread.

80% of all dodge trucks are still on the road today !!!
The other 20% actually made it home under their own power lol j/k
Seriously, Fiat Chrysler just announced another huge recall on 2012 and up 2500,3500,4500 trucks for faulty wiring/ fire issues.

Any of the Big 3 trucks will do a great job. Go with a dually if you're a fiver owner. The used prices on such vehicles are triple high, and I'd rather spend a little more to go new--rather than one 1-2 years old.

A new XLT diesel is about the same cost as an identical Lariat gas unit--and a relatively good value.

And don't believe what you've heard about the Ford 6.7. It's fantastic. Drive'em all and shop the dealerships hard on price. The cream will quickly rise to the top.

That's a BS statement even for a Ram guy.

That obviously depends on where you're looking around. With RAM's recent reputation I'd hardly say the uniformed would buy a Ford, might just be the opposite. I'd say the unformed would buy a RAM, hopefully nothing older than a 2015 unless they want it to be bought back, like to buy new front tires every few thousand miles or like the front end to shake.

You do have me laughing, only because this lame excuse pops up a lot, but you better check your figures again.

Sure, see my post above, but it only shows HD, not broken about by SRW and DRW.

So your argument is Ford sells more trucks because they're worse?
