2015 EcoBoost Ford F-150 vs 2015 EcoDiesel Dodge Ram 1500


Two stunning beasts but, which one is better?

Automakers are forced to make big changes because of the strict fuel economy regulations, and some of the biggest changes hit the pickup trucks. These thirsty workhorses are taught to be more efficient and as always, each automaker has a different style, so they use different approaches at addressing that particular problem.

Ford answered the question with EcoBoost. But, when you think about it, the EcoBoost has been Ford’s answer to almost every question in the past few years. The 2015 Ford F-150 has a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 that helps it save gas. Also, the F-150 has an all-aluminum body that helps it shed weight which cuts down on fuel. The Ram, on the other hand, went the diesel route. Its 3.0-liter unit is hooked up to an 8-speed transmission.

Both trucks take 2 different approaches and drive differently but, the real question is which of these two delivers most savings while still being a hard worker? Check out the video to find out more.
