2019 Ram vs. 2019 silverado – page 3 – great lakes 4×4. the largest offroad forum in the midwest mp electricity bill payment paschim kshetra

I have a 2016 3.5L Eco Scew Lariat (max tow with 3.73’s and a 6 speed), for what it is I feel it’s pretty dang quick, the quickest and best towing 1/2 ton I’ve experienced. But, it is highly restricted, I’ve hit 100 often (just passing cars on my country road commute) and the governor grabs ahold. I’ve yet to ride or drive a Dodge that feels like quality or has the power a "hemi" boasts about. I’m a big GM fan when it comes to trucks, but for a 1/2 ton for me there was just no comparison with quality, comfort, overall design, ride, power, feel, and safety. It wasn’t the cheapest option but I’m happy with what I got and I plan to keep it for at least 10 years.

I’m glad you’re happy with your F150, but I have to be honest, we had a brand new rental 2018 4×4 screw lariat with a 5.0 and it felt really "bouncy" to me. It didn’t feel planted at all and it almost felt squirrely. After driving it for almost a week to and from (and around) Chicago, I was happy to get back in my 2013 GMC Sierra.

I had a 2011 and 2014 Ram, both the build quality was questionable at best, but I did have minimum issues until 120k. The biggest I had was the 2014 was delivered with the air bag hanging out of the A-pillar, and the seat covers constantly came unhooked. The seats were horribly uncomfortable. The front end was wearing out at 70k miles and had to have tie-rods.

I had a 2014 Chevy, the ride and driver position was the best and ride most comfortable, it also got the best mileage, but always ‘felt’ slow. I believe this is due to Chevy’s torque management programming. Rear seat leg room was lower than the Ford, but about the same as the Ram. It towed 8500lbs and barely broke a sweat around Michigan. The only issue I had was a coil pack failed under warranty.

I now have a 2017 3.5 ecoboost crew cab 150. It’s build quality seems good, is comfortable over all, has the most room and feels freaking fast to me. It is definitely the fastest of the 3. It’ll peel the rear tires off if I hammer it rolling at 25-35 mph. That said, in the first 45k miles I have had two check engine lights, and the dealer just shrugs. They do eventually go out on their own.
