    I remember reading something that said in 2006, the rules about how engines were rated by the SAE was changed, but the engine is still the same.

    Here's a LINK to more of that information.

    Good link. Also changed recently is the method for calculating the estimated fuel economy for a given model, now the numbers on the window sticker are supposed to more closely reflect real-world driving results but some owners are struggling to meet even those numbers. Just a point of interest.

    I remember asking this question to the dealer in late 2005 when I bought my 2006, he tried up-selling the 2005 because of the HP difference

    Good point. I didn't know that, so naturally I'll do some online research about it now. I personally don't think the gas mileage is too bad on my truck. I have a 1987 V8 Ford Van which is horrible on mileage, haha.


    Lol! Clever seller.. So which one did you get? The 05 right, cuz it has more hp?
