That's just it, with a torque number that close, the ford will beat it with its 50+ HP advantage

You definitely won't be able to feel 5 lb/ft but I think to the average truck buyer that only watches commercials on tv to male their decision the bragging rights may be a selling point.

With the extra 5 ft/lbs I can carry an extra Yeti full of adult beverages? (Not a real bad idea in retrospect!!!) Come on Ford, get with the program!! (sarcasm intended!)
