    Toyota still hasn't figured out how to make a "truck" truck. But they sure do a darn good job of making light duty trucks. Styling on the new one looks like the current gen Chevy to me. Its like there is a contest to see who can build a truck with the most complex body lines.

    I think it said Classic on the side. Its like a Ford XLT trim level. The Hemi had some kind of sporty exhaust that roared the entire trip. I had to wear ear plugs. Plus, the 8 speed downshifts every time you tick the cruise up 1 MPH so more roaring. Ride was hella rough and it got 14mpg over 2200 miles cruising at 75 with a motorcycle in the bed. FAIL!

    Classic is a 4th gen. Try a NBS 5th. Big difference.

    It was an Alamo rental with 8K miles on it, so I assumed it was a '21. My mistake if not.

    Oh, it probably was a 21. Ram decided to continue to make the 4th gens as well as the 5th alongside each other for some reason. Lord knows why, but having owned both, the newer bodystyle is a big upgrade.

    I hear those Desmosedici's are really heavy and slow, so that was probably your problem. Try putting a bagger of some sort back there and you'll be fine... :D

    The exterior really looks similar to the current model Silverado 2500/3500.:Puke:

    They've never tried to make a "truck" truck, they've always made light duty 1/2ton trucks. That being said, the current tundra is like a heavy 1/2ton as far as the powertrain/running gear goes.

    Reminds me of when I bought a new 2004 F250 supercrew diesel and a new Road King. I put the Road King in the back of the truck in Montana and drove to California. It caved in the bed a good 2".

    Wow. I’ve had F150 for two decades and just got a 21 Ram and it’s the best truck I’ve ever owned. Love the hemi and the smooth transmission and the incredible interior of the Laramie. To each their own I guess.

    I did a lot of the work on the stamping presses in TX for this new model, so don't hate too bad.

    Definitely a 4th gen, steer clear if you can. I’ve owned a 5th gen for 3 yrs and 30k. It has a few quirks (very minor issues), but nothing different then any domestic. Honestly, its the first vehicle Ive had in a long time that I’m not bored to death with after 3 year.

    Just not a fan of turbos in trucks. I’ll take a V8 for simplicity and known reliability any day. I tend to own my vehicles well past 200k. I wonder how much those turbos are to replace?

    All those bagging on the previous Tundra must have never owned one. Had one and it was a great truck. Towed and hauled sleds and side by sides great. Mileage did suck when unloaded compared to my new Silverado though.
