Reputation and brand loyalty are everything in the now-crowded field of full-size trucks-which explains the lack of big-time sales numbers for the oddly styled Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan. This game's all about the domestics, and for now, the Ram 1500 is the best of the lot, with great styling and a lovely interior, but backbreaking towing and hauling capability. The Ford F-150 earns higher ratings for that hard work, but a blunter style that's softened somewhat by the luxurious interior.
its new powertrain lineup is efficient and strong, and electric power steering feels better than its old setup. GM's big problem is the Sierra is almost the duplicate of the Chevrolet Silverado, right down to the Hybrid's technology, though the Sierra is a bit more distinctive.
