Second time you made this untrue statement in this thread. And I corrected you once before:

He's choosing between an F150 and a Ram 1500 for s tow vehicle.
I said it before.

Whichever has the best price and interest rate-

I don't have a dog in this fight, but your own link disproves your point. It rates the repayment claim as being "mostly false".

What is interesting to me is that there is a debate about which automaker received subsidies, being argued by people who all consume subsidized fuel and drive on subsidized roads.

In the interests of not taking a political side, and returning now to the debate of F150 vs Ram 1500, I like both engines (Ecoboost and Ecodiesel over gasoline V8s), the current Ram transmission, and the Ford platform. I'd give an edge to the Ford dealer network. But given sufficient payload capacity, either can work just fine.

I hope you're not suggesting the Feds profitable investment in GM was the result of government spending money to buy GM products. <huff huff, outrage, grimace, etc.>.

Making a fresh batch of popcorn. Hey, this is fun!

Hi, WOW Top; Did you read the last paragraph, of the link you posted, stating that besides Ford there is also GM, Toyota, BMW, Volkswagon, Audi, Nissan, Kia, and Fiat / Chrysler spending big bucks in Mexico?

WOW
Yes, Bob, I read it. My point is that Ford fans should not profess that Ford is a the great All American auto maker. The lone hero of the American worker. No auto maker has any loyalty to any country or its workers. They compete on the global market. I understand their business decisions. It doesn't mean that I'll support them with the purchase of their automobile.

Last summer we searched for a small car for my daughter to take to college. She, like me, would only consider a car assembled in the USA. It was not an easy endeavor. We settled on a nice little Ford Focus. As long as I have the choice, I will buy cars and trucks built with mostly American labor. It is getting more and more difficult to find cars made (assembled) in the USA.

If RAM moves its assembly of the Crew Cab 1500 to Mexico along with the regular cab 1500 and 2500/3500 I won't buy another RAM. I will not buy any car or truck made in Mexico.

My grandfather, an immigrant who arrived in the US in 1907, in the 60s always said buy American. With a sly smile on her face, my mother asked where his Swiss watch was made.

Fun thread.. I've got no dog in the fight either. And I'm pulling a 23FC FB with a pretty low tongue weight. There is a sticker in the door frame that states 1,378 payload, but it looks like it's basically a tire sticker. Is this the sticker you guys are all referring to about payload? I even dug up the original price sticker from the window. (The previous owner had saved it in the glove box) there was no reference to payload on the sticker.. Maybe these rice burners don't have the same stickers..
It does say made in the USA, at Toyota of Texas on it.

There was a yellow maximum payload sticked on the screen door of both our 2014 Classic and 2015 23D. There was no mention of the tongue weight, just the published GVW less the factory scaled weight of the total trailer.

Yes, the government is a 61% equity owner of all GM stock. A government that is trillions in debt to the Chinese. Not a good thing.
