And 2/3 of those go to a fleet leasing company & then to drivers that didn't have ANY choice in what truck they prefer the company just leases the cheapest vehicle on the market, FORD, not necessarily that are better just cheaper.
In 1978 I didn't mind driving the Ford the company furnished, but after 30+ years of having to drive them fortunately I now have a choice.

Is this an "ecoboost" free thread?
We really want to talk about trucks, right?

Hold it, you got a Ram and consider that a truck? Dreaming! Dealers have to give them away. Even Dodge took their name off the RAMs.

I must have said it a million times. Never exaggerate the facts. The actual number of Ford fleet sales is 31%, almost exactly what GM fleet sales are.

G.M. and Dodge also sell fleet, there are plenty of guys going the other way driving a Ford to work only having to get in a Chevy or Dodge. Cheap? If 50k for a F-150 and 70k for Super Duty is cheap then you must be pretty well loaded...oh I forget you have a GMC,they givery you money back for buying them.

I see a Great option the new 2017 fords have on them is a heated tailgate. That will help a lot of people in the colder climates keep their hands warm pushing their trucks home

Yeah, the fords are not up to date with the heated seats that work when the Chevy/GMC trucks breaks down. Don't forget, OnStar was made just for the Chevy and GMC trucks. Faster tow service than calling AAA.
Although I heard they now make GMC wreckers,

Former GM owner

Had a 2004 Silverado 1500, bought brand new....knew when my 2007 Cougar was behind it. Bought the 2016 ST32RL, thought I heard the Silverado cussing me out a few times. Traded the Silverado for a 2006 Ram 2500, truck doesn't realize it has 8K behind it, 125k miles and loving it. Realize all brands have lemons, but so far loving the Cummins with TurboCharger. Maintenance is key, regardless of brand.....

Shane,you and Danny are missing the big picture,Danny said his company gave him a Ford to drive they wanted him to make it to his job.

That's not the point, it's what brand you buy, or as in your case, have to settle for.

Well after 40 years in the electrical construction industry the only people driving half tons were the office staff the real work was left to the 3/4 tons and up.at the start we were running GM products then the companys went to ford, then dodge as they were cheaper to purchase. Then in early 80's they went back to GM as the operating cost was cheaper for the life of 5he vehicle. All of the big three are better vehicles now. But 2 of them are still throw aways
