Love the Raptor, though you've neglected to take notice of the optional 6.2 liter V8 (I think it's a slightly later intro but it should still be 2010).

Might want to read this before you make stupid, uninformed statements like that. The Power Wagon and Raptor are equally badass.

Then again, I'm not much of an off-road racer or enthusiast, and as badass as those two trucks are, they're both quite excessive. The Tundra Work Truck is all the truck most people will ever need.

Not sure at all what to vote for, they all have their strengths.

Ford's site says Winter 2010. That's later than the SLS, Sienna, and a few other cars I excluded on the basis of being 2011 models. Besides has anyone driven the 6.2 yet?

Fine, maybe not hanging, but surely the finger pillory.

I'd still take the Raptor as it's much lighter and, from everything I've seen, handles better.

Actually, it's not, according to Moe's numbers anyway. And it doesn't have very much power compared to the others' big V8s.

My number's are for the entire Ram HD range, not just the Power Wagon. I believe the lowest possible weight is for a single cab, 2WD model. The Power Wagon is 4WD and has a dual cab, along with it's additional off-road hardware, I'm guessing the Power Wagon is pretty heavy.

According to Toyota a Tundra Regular Cab 4x2 5.7L weighs 4805. A Tundra Double Cab 4x4 5.7L weighs 5460. I'll take one of the latter... even w/ double cab and 4WD, it's cheaper, lighter, and more powerful than the Raptor. If I'm going more for off-road ability, I'll take a V6 Tacoma, which weighs waaay less. But what do I know, I grew up on Toyota trucks. wink.gif

5800 lbs. vs. 6500 lbs. for each performance model, Raptor first.

Raptor, obviously. Although I do like how they've smoothed out the duallie flares on the Ram HD - looks badass. My dad has an '08 Ram 3500 with that Cummins 6.7, and that engine is absolutely epic. Of course, so is the Tundra's 5.7L 32v V8 - but I'm not hot to trot on the Tundra frame issues or the general "it's going to kill you" vibe going on with Toyota now.

Mainly it's the Raptor's suspension that does it for me. I mean, Fox triple bypass racing shocks? All-aluminum control arms? A gazillion feet of travel? Sex.

I ended up voting for the Ram. The Heavy Duty line is pretty awesome on a whole, and the Power Wagon is a formidable truck off-road. If I were buying a pick-up it would probably be a Ram anyway, so there you go.

The Raptor is epically badass, but too much of a niche product, and the Power Wagon is very nearly just as badass as well.

I used to be a big Ram fan until the current generation arrived. Looks like shit. Raptor is the most badass looking pickup there is.

Saw my first Raptor yesterday, looked badass in black in the snow. Though i'd never see one in Switzerland.
