Thought this was interesting. Ford is the "official" truck, but Titan is the BEST. Is this like the Car & Driver thing? Wonder how many F150s were donated to be official?

Well, when the titan beat out the F150 in th C&D shootout, the ford guys simply said "what does C&D know about trucks.. it's not Truck and driver"

But when the F150 got best of year right after that (or something like that) they changed their tune...

Remember when the crash tests were out and the Tundra stomped everyone? That sold a LOT of tundras, at least in my area. I was one of the few, and a couple months after that I started seeing a lot more tundras.

So, I had to get a Titan.. LOL!
