Agreed on the warranty. I am starting to shop for a truck and looked specifically at warranties. Surprisingly they are very similar. I am leaning toward the Ford as it is what I have and am happy with it. I don't have fleet experience; however, my father does as the company has both Chevy and Ford vehicles. His reply on our topic is that overall they had more repairs on the Chevys but when the Fords broke it was more substantial- transmissions, etc. The irony though is that Ford replaced without cost their transmissions. In his sales/maintenance Taurus he drove it 319,000 miles from new over a six year period. There were three transmissions replaced and one engine mount on his alone. That was about it he says. The other Fords had transmissions replaced as well and a similar lack of anything else. The wagon ran good but the seats were worn so bad that they replaced it for him. Meanwhile the Chevys had Oil pumps, water pumps and several other maintenance items replaced during their five year term- some transmissions but not in general.
I am looking forward to seeing this American aluminum truck! I will say that of the trucks. I have looked at so far, the Ram is one nice looking truck. I like their side toolbox and the white Longhorn is nice. Yep, the aluminum Ford has some competition.
