I don't think anybody will be surprised by this one. To be honest, I would have been pretty disappointed in GM and Ford if the Dodge would have beat either of them, especially because the Dodge is running with a a power plant that has gone unchanged for nearly 4 years. Honestly, Dodge/Cummins/Us Consumers, should be really impressed that this truck was even comparable to the other trucks in terms of power plant.

I was impressed how well (fuel economy) it did towing the trailor. I thought the other two where going to slaughter it.

I'm with you man. I really thought it was gonna get walked! I mean it did, but not to the extent I thought it was. One thing I like though, is that GM and Ford are puting such nice trucks on the road, it will force Ram to work that much harder! Thus, making all three brands that much better for us to enjoy!

Same here love the body style it should stay around awhile and i believe Cummins will keep the 6.7 just upgrade a little in the performance dept it can still pull a house down so thats all the matters. I keep hearing t*** this and that...cant leak out everything i hear
