Yep, nothing I thought I would see. It does look good. It sounded like they are pushing their V6 models as the competition to the other V6 models. I'll wait until they release them on the website and read the specs. They won't start selling until September so maybe they have some changes up their sleeve. They better act quick though! That new Dodge is being released in a couple months.

I think I just figured it out, I hope... maybe they will actually offer a 4x4 v6 model. it doesn't seem like they do right now. Maybe it will be 22+ mpg

Looks like the new Ram has leapfrogged Toyotas design goals and is available now,they had nothing to say to compete with the new Ram technology:
