Yes, that's been a rumor......for several years.
I have the 2011 RAM, and love it.
I looked at the Fords, and just have a hard time trusting an engine that has traditionally changed every 3-4 years because they sucked!
Now that Ford is building it, I am reading of issues on the fuel pump, after several thousands miles of usage. Neither Ford or Bosch will step up to fix it, and it costs the owner a couple grand to fix/replace.
One thing I did to increase reliability on the Cummins is delete all the emissions crap. Now it runs strong, no clogged DPF filters, and averages 20 -22 mpg running empty.
SHHHHHH....don't tell, but I know the government is monitoring our internet activity, so they know already anyways...
