Gear shifter from a Jag?

No good thing ever dies? (cough) street big blocks..........
Paul Lissona Apr 06, 2012
Yah I like trucks sometimes, but much rather drive a 3 series or something daily.
Scotty Gee Apr 06, 2012
No good thing ever dies, except when gas is $7.50 a gallon and people are still commuting with an f'n pickup truck because they need to pull a boat trailer 4 times a year..
Jordan Nishida Feb 17, 2013
Love it. I really want it for my first truck
Chris Leavitt Aug 13, 2012
best truck hands down!
Scotty Gee Apr 06, 2012
Josiah, I totally agree with you. It's the people that want to drive (commute) pickups because they just want to, not because they actually have to like in your family's business. Then they complain about why gas can't be $1.02 a gallon anymore..
Josiah Thomas Clements Apr 05, 2012
My dad used to have a 2007 Toyota tundra, and he needed it because he had to tow spas from our warehouse, to our store. Sometimes he would have to tow 3 at the same time. That's why pickups are so important. They are needed in small businesses.
Paul Lissona Apr 05, 2012
We've had a few ford trucks and SUVs all being reliable and useful when we needed them. But yah most people don't need a big truck or truck at all.
Dillon Dixon Apr 05, 2012
Yep, it's my dads truck. I love it though. I wish it could be my first car, but that's not gonna happen.
Greg Lewis Apr 05, 2012
He said our family, as in daddies truck.
Matthew Reindorp Apr 05, 2012
Dillon, according to this you don't own a silverado, you own a Pagani tricolore and a koenigsegg Agera R? Haha
KyleM Apr 05, 2012
7000lb tow capacity is plenty for almost everyone
KyleM Apr 05, 2012
most midsize pickups and even compact pickups over the last decade had plenty of capacity to get done what average joes actually do. Not everyone has a 25ft boat or trailer. Its more of a problem of pricing and fuel efficiency. The compacts were priced right on top of the entrylevel full sizes, and they never improved the fuel efficienies
Dillon Dixon Apr 05, 2012
Full size pickups serve a huge purpose around here. I don't know what my family would do without our silverado.
Matt Piccolo Apr 05, 2012
Personally, I would rather a small one though cuz they look better...
Matt Piccolo Apr 05, 2012
Them, and the small ones are too car like I geuss, mabye that's why they got rid of them, couldn't tow enough
Matt Piccolo Apr 05, 2012
I don't like full sized pick-ups either, but I can see why they're selling... When people have certain jobs they need one... My dad use to have one cuz of his job, but got rid of it when he got a huge permotion... So their is a reason companies keep
Clint Edwards Apr 05, 2012
@Ethan because nobody was buying them. Most buyers could've made do with a car, and they're not fit to tow/haul anything
Ethan Amo Apr 05, 2012
I dislike all large pickups too...if they really cared about how the petrol levels in the world are diminishing....why would they discontinue the compact pickup?
Matthew Reindorp Apr 05, 2012
I really dislike large pickups just an opinion... Maybe it's because I'm a Brit, maybe it's because I love and own cold hard supercars... But I just don't like it
Patrick Schalk Apr 05, 2012
Cause CarBuzz probably hasn't loaded the other stories yet.

Ford v6 ecoboost: 360hp, 350lb-ft torque, 22mpg. Where's the innovation here, Ram?
Paul Lissona Apr 06, 2012
For a full size gas truck, a v8 or nothing. For a diesel yah probably a 6 is good.
Cody Andree Apr 05, 2012
I wouldn't ever by a gaser. Diesels all day long. Chip it and rip it
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
@Jeremy, ya buddy cummins all day!
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
There's nothing wrong with having a six cylinder truck, Hell I'd actually rather have an I6 for heavy towing.
Tito Sanchezruiz Apr 05, 2012
I meant to mention not the same weight but heavier.
Tito Sanchezruiz Apr 05, 2012
Well Dustin, actually it's not the same. If you brought your dog in last years model it would not the be the same, but heavier.
Brandon Lidy Apr 05, 2012
The 6 cylinder is for light duty. Don't need 500 ft/lbs to drive and check gas meters and what not
Greg Lewis Apr 05, 2012
It's commercial use trucks, you know the kind, ones that deliver flowers. Or haul once every 20 years.love my penstar, but think in trucks, fords 6 wins by landslide still
Cody Andree Apr 05, 2012
Well anyone who buys a full size GM, Ford, or Dodge with a v6 is well..... U get the point
Devin Babyn Apr 05, 2012
I'm not saying I know more then anyone at Ram but how is 269lb/ft of torque enough in a truck? I know it's only the base with a v6 but still I expect more

@Clint I just found out how much mpg's it get 10 city 18 highway. It's not bad, but still not as good.
Clint Edwards Apr 05, 2012
@Mikey yeah I checked, you're right. My dad had a 6.0, ran like a bat outta hell but couldn't ever get anything better than 13mpg. From what I've drove, Dodges tow better anyway. Don't squat near as bad in the rear
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
@Clint it's a 6.2L, and I'm sure it does but it's still has class leading hp, but not that it matter cause I think the dodge has class leading towing ?
Clint Edwards Apr 05, 2012
With the 6.0, which chugs gas faster than a college student downs cheap liqour
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
@rickstarTc actually the GMC sierra has 403 hp and 413lbft.
rockstarTc Apr 05, 2012
oooooo best in class!! suck it chevy and ford!! haha
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
@jack Mercedes invented the car, so what's your point?
Jack Howard Apr 05, 2012
Well honda kind of invented sooo
Kevin Irish Apr 05, 2012
Are you talking about cylinder management? Chrysler has been using that since 2006 I think. They just haven't made a big deal about it like Honda.
Hamza Hamid Apr 05, 2012
VCM as in Honda?
Alex Long Nov 20, 2012
I want a Ram 1500 as my first car that is an awesome vehicle
Paul Lissona Apr 06, 2012
The chrome looks good as its an American traditional thing. Even if your working the chrome looks good, not like it needs more maintenance than black paint geez.
Patrick R. Manuel Apr 06, 2012
Looks like a kid with braces.
Cody Andree Apr 05, 2012
This dodge ain't gunna do any work lol
Jeremy Siebert Apr 05, 2012
Chrome is fine for a show-&-shine...does nothing for the "work" I'd wanna be doing with the truck
Paul Lissona Apr 05, 2012
Chrome is great on trucks, they need it. The cheap models have black metal bumpers and grille.
Clint Edwards Apr 05, 2012
There's a blacked out '12 Ram in town with the black projector lights, and it looks damn good. But this, not so much
Greg Lewis Apr 05, 2012
See I like the two tone and projector headlights. But I wouldn't buy a truck, have no need for one. So I'm "that guy" if I was to get one...
Cody Andree Apr 05, 2012
Without all the chrome? Trucks are known for the chrome bumpers, side steps, etc.
Kevin Irish Apr 05, 2012
I also think the "mesh" grille inserts should be black.
Kevin Irish Apr 05, 2012
Also not a fan of the projector headlights. They just don't fit with the rest of the styling.
Payne Hodges Wilson Apr 05, 2012
I agree the chrome is a bit too much. I just blacked out almost all the chrome on my ram and it looks a thousand times better now IMO.
Chris Bridgers Apr 05, 2012
most people love the shiny style..most ppl dont get trucks 4 work in US
Jimmy Williams Apr 05, 2012
Please make this available without all the chrome, that's why I hate the newer F-150. No need to copy the gaudiness.
Dillon Dixon Apr 05, 2012
I have never really liked the ram styling. I have always preferred the silverado.
Patrick Schalk Apr 05, 2012
Yeah I don't really like two tone trim on any truck. Looks kinda tacky IMO but these are sweet trucks
Clint Edwards Apr 05, 2012
I like the body style, but it's a little too I dunno, glitzy for my taste. I feel like I could build this myself with ebay headlights and grilles
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
This truck just screams,"America!"

Yah chrome bumpers, grilles, mirrors, and door handles sounds good. The brake lights idk.
Jitendra Patel Apr 05, 2012
what up with the thing pn the roof
Kevin Irish Apr 05, 2012
I like chrome on the bumpers, step rails and grille. But only the signature crossbar part of the grille. The inserts behind it should be satin black. And no chrome around the tail lights. I think the 300's tail lights are hideous, to be honest.
Paul Lissona Apr 05, 2012
The chromes nice on a truck.
Brandon Lidy Apr 05, 2012
I'm sure they want some resemblance between models
Zachary Maurer Apr 05, 2012
I'm not usually one to do this but... The tail lights look a lot like the Chrysler lights with the trim, I think this might be what there trying to incorporate on at least 1-2 models of everyone of there brand
Kevin Irish Apr 05, 2012
Not a huge fan of the trim around the tail lights, but I could live with it if I ever get one of these.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
@devin I don't know about that one my uncle has a 04 RAM and that thing takes a beating. Took it to Zacatecas (Mexico) and those roads are nothing but stone and dirt, and the damn thing handle great !
Devin Babyn Apr 05, 2012
I've watched a couple things on it and they weren't able to fix it after multiple attempts. I also know a couple guys in town that have attempted to have it fixed and attempted it themselves and gave up. So I'm curious what's your secret to fixing it
Jeremy Siebert Apr 05, 2012
Death wobble sucks, but it can be fixed. The aftermarket and my garage are great for that...
Devin Babyn Apr 05, 2012
It's better until the death wobble kicks in. Once that happens you might as well sell it or scrap it
Cody Andree Apr 05, 2012
Ford and chevy trucks beat any ram. But the cummins def kills the powerstroke and is much more reliable. Less moving parts with the inline 6. The duramax is a beast as well. Would prefer it over both
Zachary Maurer Apr 05, 2012
When is that siliverado suppost to debut, the redesigned one?
Kevin Irish Apr 05, 2012
Ram trucks just look more aggressive than Ford. Even Chevy is more aggressive. Ford trucks are just too plain, not in-your-face like Ram. I want one of these.
Patrick Schalk Apr 05, 2012
I do like these quite a lot. I'd totally go for a new Ram for a full size.
Ben Shrivers Apr 05, 2012
Best looking truck ever
Alec Lindgren Apr 13, 2012
I'm sorry but I just grew up against Fords I used to love Chevy but now I'm all over Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/Ram/SRT
Robert Young Apr 05, 2012
Yes ur right Alec. I stand corrected.
Paul Roberts Apr 05, 2012
The bed is so small because most people that buy big trucks these days don't actually use them to carry or haul things. It stupid the gas prices are goo through the roof and yet we buy more full size trucks
Shawn Sullivan Apr 05, 2012
Too bad the bed is so small with the quad cab tho
Alec Lindgren Apr 05, 2012
Don't go there Robert

Construction site or hauling x amount of bales of hay or whatever. Some people just want to be comfortable and I can't blame em for that. Cars are having more and more standard features nowadays. Might as well take advantage of it.
Patrick Schalk Apr 05, 2012
It doesn't say in the article that this is a work truck. But if I had the money, I'd buy a nice one like this. Why not? A lot of people will also have boats to tow or take some camping trips or help someone move. Not every truck is gonna be on a
Robert Young Apr 05, 2012
Mikey why not enjoy the fruits of your labor. A man has to go all out on something like a house, boat, or even a car. For my b-day I bought a 2012 King Ranch fully loaded. So now I can eat my fruit everyday. Surely you have done the same
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
@Greg it's just preference, if you're towing something heaving I'm sure you'd prefer it to.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
@Robert you look and sound like a angry baseball dad type haha, well unlike you I don't buy trucks to go grocery shopping and drop the kids off to the mall.
Robert Young Apr 05, 2012
"keep it simple"??? That's the stupidest thing I read in a long time. Cloth seats..... Lol
Naval Kumar Apr 05, 2012
I don't know what kind of a hill billy would appreciate the luxury and those buying such trucks with leather and sat nav and have an office job...well...why don't u get a job in construction or farming in that case
Kevin Irish Apr 05, 2012
A relatively small percentage of people buy full sized trucks for work these days. A lot of people get them for their looks and "own-the-road" view from the driver's seat. So having a lot of luxury and convenience items in trucks is becoming more and more commonplace.
Greg Kenerly Apr 05, 2012
Manual on a full size truck is terrible but I agree with the cloth seats.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 05, 2012
Kind of have to agree with Kevin on this one. Just keep it simple, cloth seats, manual, and a simple AM FM radio.
Paul Lissona Apr 05, 2012
Haha yah that'd be funny.
Jack Howard Apr 05, 2012

Kevin Rehbock Apr 05, 2012
