The topic is back seat legroom, and the F-250 CrewCab has limosine-like back seat legroom.
But whether GM, Toyota, Nissan, Ram or Ford, the big gas engines are going to drink lots of gasoline when towing.
No, i did mention the ford 6.2L in post #10. GM and RAM released their 6.2L and 6.4L engines this year, which have updates including cylinder deactivation. GM makes 460ftlbs of torque and the hemi makes 430ftlbs of torque. Ford is now behind with 405ft-lbs of torque, and is down 25HP from the hemi and 35hp from the GM engine. The F150's ecoboost makes more torque than ford's 6.2L and at a much lower RPM. It only makes 20 less horsepower.
The other issue is that ford isn't discounting their trucks like RAM is now, GM is starting to discount their trucks because of lost marketshare. A brand new ram 6.4L costs about the same as a slightly used F250 6.2L with about 30k miles on it. But when buying brand new, you get much better interest rates, which probably makes it cheaper.
The true Crew cab on all the brands have limosine like legroom. People just tend to get confused by the quad and double cabs which look like crew cabs, but aren't.
