Doesn't look too bad. Guess it will depend on how much they want for the Off-Road Hemi 4x4. Can't get the new innovative storage box on the reg cab, but still isn't bad.

My experience w/ ChryMoCo dealers is that they've never really wanted to deal much on new introductions, but w/ the fullsize market being down, maybe they won't be able to hold the line as easily.

Also, with the new suspension on these, it may be wise to wait until the 2nd or 3rd model year in until they get the kinks worked out. On the flip side, it's probably not more than the quadra-coil type setup Jeeps have used for years so it actually may be pretty solid (suspension wise) right out of the gate. And for a decent deal w/ the lifetime powertrain warranty, these may be worth a look.

This new Ram is the firstRam I actually like, styling-wise. The 1994 and the subsequent updates never did it for me. This one is similar, but IMO really gets it right...or so I thought until I saw a Tundra pic and a Ram pic on the same page and then :unsure: there were similarities I had never realized before. I still like the look of the new Ram, but it has now been tainted by the ugliest pick up on earth. :(

That bedside storage is a good idea. :yup: But it's still a Dodge truck, so I'll never drive one. :rolleyes:

What Uzzy?

I can't see Tundra at all in the new Ram. It is fresh and clean. The front end is proportionate unlike the Tundra, and the interior is beautiful. I can't say the same for the Toyota.

Look at small pictures side by side (or one on top of the other)of roughly the same colour. I saw an ad for a Tundra and an ad for a website with new Ram pics and I noticed it. The shpe of the grille and such. I'm not saying indetical, but similar in some ways. And the pics were small remember. The Ran is stil way better looking, but the similarities are a bit troublesome for me. :unsure:

I think what you meant to say is that the Tundra resembles the older gen Ram as the new Dodge is simply an improvement upon the last one. The design cues on the Tundra are without a doubt taken from Ram, especially the large, bold front end.

No, new one. The new grille is more trapezoidal, much like the Tundra's. The Tundra headlights are too small and the Ram's look better. Just look at the two of them, in rather smallish pictures and I think you'll agree, their silhouettes are at least quite similar.

I get where you are coming from but my point is that the Ram was restyled and redesigned in the image of the last Ram, not the Tundra. The Tundra looks similar because Toyota copied the Ram looking front end from the last gen Dodge pickup. Lol that sounds confusing.

Lets just agree to disagree. Agreed?

Ya. Ok, I know what you mean. I'm not insinuating that the Ram copied the Turdra in any way. Obviously the Turdra copied the older Rams some (and the '97 F-150) and the newer Ram is a continuation of the older ones, just much better looking IMO. They got the grille looking good IMO.

Since I pretty much agreed with what you have up there, I cannot agree to that. :p:
