Dodge/Ram pickups have always been one of the toughest and most powerful trucks on the road ... now they've added a little comfort to go along with the rumble under the hood, Kudos to Mopar!!!  No matter what people think America needs the big 3 alive and well to help bring the economy back!

Americans love trucks. Why not get a truck that can pull anything, gets great mileage and lasts 500,000 miles, as in a diesel?

As a rental car driver, I drive them all. They are all good. Dodge does have the best ride. I would love to have anyone one of them. But if I was taking a long trip in one......it would be the Dodge Ram hands down. It rides like a sedan. Amazing!

Let's try an experiement. Take a new Toyota Tundra and put it up against my 2002 Ford diesel. In ten years my truck will be worth more, get better mileage and will be able to  haul more stuff. Then we can tie them together with a chain on the bumper hitches and I will drag the Toyota any place the Ford wants to go.

They should have titled the article 'Best Corporate American trucks'.  Tundras are built in Texas, or doesn't Texas count anymore?  Screw corporate America, they're the ones who outsourced American manufacturing labor.  My money went to the people on the Tundra assembly line and their families.
