Test was created in 2012.

Ram last updated in 2009 with a Mid Generation update in 2013 for mostly technology stuff, nothing structurally. The next update is up in the air for around 2018-2020.

GM last did an update in 2014....and I believe Toyota was at least 5-7 years ago.

And if you don't believe it, just look in the junk yards. That's where Fords have always been #1.

The good news for Ford fans is, that for the first time ever, the body won't rust off the frame in 10 years!

Hope it didn't have Firestone 500 tires on it, Evel Knievel even said even he wouldn't drive a Pinto on Firestone 500 tires.
