    WOW, prices are interesting for a 4x2. I wonder how much of this is to make up the $77 million dollar fine they got nailed with for missing their fuel economy numbers? 🤔

    I think pricing looks great.  A 3500 Limited Megacab is basically a full-blown luxury car interior, but this is a luxury car that can tow your house! And it still costs less than an S-Class

    And it's available in brown.   They should bring back the name Imperial and put it on the top of the line 3500 Limited Megacab.

    As some may know, I am definitely a "Ford Man".  

    But, as it is right at the moment, I am working in sales at an FCA dealer.  I have for the past year.  I had no qualms doing so because I grew up in Mopar house as much as a Ford house as a lad.

    So, on the new Heavy Duties from Ram.  I believe they will be as big a hit as the 1500 was last year.  It took me a while to warm up to the new '19 1500, but I didn't have that with the '20 HD.  It is definitely a dynamite looking truck.

    It doesn't appear to climbing up too high in MSRP and capability should be at least as good as the outgoing model across the line.

    All in all, I am happy to be where I am at right now.

    • @David The first 8 minutes explains what the Porsche 911 GT3 RS is all about.  The first 8 minutes should give you an idea how much engineering goes into the RS model over and beyond not only over the regular GT3, but ANY road legal track ready sports car.   When somebody says the Corvette E-Ray is better than the Porsche 911, well...if you do pay attention to what and how the 911 GT3 RS is, then you'll realize quite quickly that the journalism is, like I said, lazy...   On a side note, the guy said that the GT3 RS made a Nurburgring time of 6 minutes 49 seconds.   The C8 Z06's time at the Nurburgring has not been set just yet. A set back on the course happened last year.  BMW and Tesla crashed and their cars.   Chevy is said to be back though.  It is also said that the time for the C8 Z06 will BE under 7 minutes  100%.   Some say it will be around the 6 minute 50 second mark.    Not too bad either way... 1.  The Porsche 911 lives on the Nurburgring.  It is its home playground.  Porsche spends and ENORMOUS amount of time and money to set records there.   2.  The C7 Z06 didnt set an official time there either because of set backs on the track involving other cars and accidents.  Yeah...the C8 too...   But, the Corvette does not live there and the Corvette also has other playgrounds that it needs to play in.  Like drag strips.   3.  Corvette is a jack of all trades sports car. The 911 is a precision machine and the Nurburgring is where it operates.  The Corvette operates at all kinds of racing digs.   Drag racing, street light to street light and at the Nurburgring.  For the C8 Z06 to get close to the 911 GT3 RS's time at the Nurburgring in its heavy GT luxury body is a testament of how good the Corvette engineers really are.  But it still remains that the GT3 RS is still a scalpel.  The E-Ray might be a great Corvette, but it all depends of what kind of comparison we want and what kind of 911 we want to talk about.  Anyway...enjoy Jay Lenos garage.   This episode is a great way to understand what the GT3 RS is without any fanboyism and without any positive or negative bias.  The narrative is as truthful as it could be.

    • Interesting review. Cannot complain about their negative being the only interior color is black or black and grey. Seems it the Georgia factory is where the GV70 EV is produced. Sadly only a 236 mile range. Genesis Electrified GV70 first drive review: a killer high-end EV with one flaw (msn.com)
