A chevy will, because it won't be on the road much broke down at the dealership. Never feel a bump.

Lower the pressure in those BFG’s. I ran those on my Ram 2500 at 45psi and they rode great, never had any adverse affects on the tires.

Was it a Dodge or a Ram?

Never mind. They are both the quietest vehicles I’ve ever been in. They don’t make any sound when they’re not running.



Like I said, I've owned them all. Time will tell how it holds up, but initially it is very impressive, and those listed above pale in comparison IME. The newer Tundra is the most overrated by a long shot.

My F150 4wd Crewcab with a 6.5 bed rides really good. Test drove the 5.5 bed thinking of trading and it bucked a bunch.

Had a 2006 Titan for 10 years and was a great truck. We are looking at the new ones.

Raptor.....

Yep and it will deplete your savings. From what i have heard Ridgelines rude like a car but not sure you can really call them a truck. Whatever you get just don't put a carppy spacer kit to level it. Do it right with upgraded shocks and coils.

Not really any different in price than some of the other trucks. A new Lariat F250 with same trim level as the Raptor is around $67K, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited even more expensive than the Raptor.

My wife's 2000 Excursion with Pro-Comp springs and Bilstein shocks rides better than my 2017 F250. That big sucker floats like a caddy.

I've owned trucks since around 2000 and have driven many different brands and sizes. My 2020 Silverado is by far the best riding of the trucks I've driven, and that is saying a lot considering I thought no truck would ever ride as good as the 2018/19 RAM. This Silverado rides fantastic for a truck, especially being 4WD.

Granted, my ‘11 Superduty F250 is a little stiff legged at low speeds, but get it on the highway and it settles right in. I run that truck at 90 usually and it’s quiet and super stable. It’s sporting Michelin’s, Billstien’s and upgraded Power stop brakes. It also has a good radar detector.

I’ve exclusively driven and bought only pickups since 1973. All types and all brands and all full size trucks. This is my first 3/4 ton and we both agree it’s the best riding truck we’ve had.

Seems that some of the ranchers in panhandle are driving Raptors because on how smoothly they ride even on the rough ranch roads.

Try riding in a f250 or Ram 250 with a carli suspension first before you make that statement.

Any truck can get softer suspension, biggest difference between car and truck, is truck will always after the ability to actually ride better because it has more suspension travel.

Grant it we are talking aftermarket though

X2.

My ram 2500 With carli and Thuren suspension is smoother than my wife’s Tahoe and my neighbors brand new 1500 cheby truck.

They really do. I just got a 2019 2500 and it rides really good for a 4x4 3/4 ton truck. It ain't no car ride for sure, but great for what it is. I'm with you on that dial. It's really hard getting used to but I'm getting there.
