#1 in sales. Must mean something. Ford didn't even need a Govt. bailout. Say what you want the evidence speaks for itself.

I'll take the new 6.2 in my next truck - 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque without the diesel engine or fuel surcharge. The extra torque would be great with a diesel, but not with all of the extra expense and upkeep cost. My B-I-L just got hit with a $9000 fuel system repair bill on his 70,000 mile 6.4 F-250 blamed on "fuel contamination". He buys 6000 gallons of fuel a week and only fills up from his tank - always fresh and filtered. I'm not willing to take that risk for some more torque that I don't need over what the 6.2 gas burner will give me.

Wow, $9000 to fix a truck with only 70K miles??? If that were me, I'd take it back and have a face to face with the owner of the dealership......trade for a new 6.7 diesel.

I'm sure he could find plenty of documentation about all the problems the 6.4 diesel has.
Contaminated fuel??? I call B.S. on that one!

Wonder what the numbers are if you combine GMC and Chev, would they have been on top for the last 35 years? The bailout argument is rubbish, IMO.

Huh?

Oh you mean GMC, ie Government Motors Company? They gave MY tax dollars to a privately owned company to keep them from going under, and that is not a concern to you?? Ok, gotcha, now I understand. Whoa, whoa, wait a minute, you're not even a citizen of this country, so your opinion of matters that pertain to the USA means squat,

I think Ford still edges out GM by a bit - Ford fleet sales put them over the top. They offer good deals on fleet sales and most places I know of tend to stock their fleets that way for some reason.

LMBO. Cool beans. I wasn't aware that ones place of residence entitled them to an opinion. They're like a$$holes, everyone's got one. I was simply saying that the bailout has nothing to do with the old "who sold more" debate.

BTW, your comment shows a complete lack of common sense. If you think you and the countryyou live in were the only ones directly effected by the economy down there, you've got that wrong. Some of us up here have bussinesses that have direct ties to companies down there... further to that, you certainly can't blame anyone else on who the citizens of the US voted into office.

Agreed. I was simply pointing out that there could have been a year, in the last 35, that GM outsold Ford. Just wasn't last year.

I'll rephrase, your opinion of the bailout means squat, you had no dog in that hunt. Your opinion of trucks can possibly be valid.

I didn't state an opinion on the bailout. I was saying that the bailout has nothing to do with the sales numbers over the last 35 years.
