Pickuptruck.com also did a review............... and pretty much loved the new F150. In particular, they found that the F150 was the best "truck" truck. The Dodge 5-speed auto really kills the truck, when used as a truck, as the drop from 1st to 2nd is huge, and the Hemi then falls on its ass.
We know you hate Ford. We also know that you don't think that anything that they make is better than ANYTHING that GM makes. You are allowed your opinion. However, considering that every mag and site that has tested the new F150 loves it, I guess you have to call them all crap also. Keep searching every site, to find what you want............ to confirm what you believe.
Ford makes a great truck. They may never be the fastest, but they are usually pretty much the best at being a "truck." GM makes a great truck. However, I truly feel that they are better at being a "driveway truck," with some "truck" stuff thrown in. The Dodge trucks, well.............. they are just plain ol "driveway trucks."
Thus, there is a truck for everyone. Just think, soon enough, you should be able to get a Chevy Ram truck also. Then you can like Chrysler also.
