2017 Ford Raptor and 2016 Ram Rebel Create Pointless Comparisons

Over the next few months and years, we will no doubt be bombarded with all sorts of articles comparing the new 2017 Ford Raptor to the new 2016 Ram Rebel. While both trucks may seem similar and comparable to the uniformed automotive journalist, they are dramatically different. It is a classic case of apples to oranges, yet these stories will be written, comment sections will go wild and the automakers and true truck journalists will shake their heads.

Why Is It A Pointless Comparison?

From the naked eye, you may be thinking what’s the big deal? These trucks both have a rugged look to them and feature lift kits, suspension upgrades and large, knobby tires. Also, they may seem to both share a place outside of the “regular” truck lineup meaning they are ripe for cross-shopping by consumers. If this is your thinking, stop. You are only looking like a fool.
