Here is my take on the big three truck companies in the 1/2 ton category. Im not righting for a he said she said battle either. About a month ago someone rear ended me on the interstate. I drive a 4 door gmc sierra. The truck is smooth shifting, plenty of power. Gets good gas milage. Comfortable to ride in. Everything you would expect out of a truck. Well after i got in the accident i was given a 2 different rental trucks. First was a 05 dodge 1500 crew cab. Truck has hemi engine and has loads of power. The suspension is great, the ground clearence was also nice while hunting as well. The seats are so so on the comfort level, probably not something you would want to drive across the country in. And the gas milage, well yea its a hemi. Now currently i have an 06 ford f150, 4 door. Let me tell you this thing is the biggest pile of steaming shiZ i have ever drove. The 5.4 drives like a 4 cylinder engine. To accelerate in any moderation the truck has to downshift. It like driving in a box on wheels, suspension is stiff for a grocery getter. I have had to tow my trailer a few times with it and OMG, they god i only have walk behinds on there, anything bigger and i wouldnt be able to hit the minumum speed limit on the highway. Honestly, how do you guys drive it, the gas milage is terrible. Isnt this the same engine they put into 3/4's as well. Breakdown GM-Pros-- Everything Dodge- Pros---- Suspension, Ride Quality, Hemi Engine Cons- Seats- Gas milage Ford- Pros-- Nice paper weight Cons- Everything, go back to the drawing board and build a new truck.
