Well, they don't run a bad time, and the ecoboost engines are supposed to great on fuel. I still think they front end is ugly.

I guess they dont make the ecoboost in a reg cab truck. BTW the ecoboost is a twin turbo i dont like the front ends either but if i had to chose id would probly get the ecoboost. I know why they didnt put the ecoboost in the reg cab its cause it would be fords fastest vehicle lol.

I can't wait for the V-6 turbodiesels in 1500's! The gas motor is a GREAT step forward for half ton trucks!

Its the most efficient way to make power, hate it or not it is a wise move. Ever heard of a Buick Grand national? V6 Turbo vette killer made popular w/ the '86-'87 models?! (made from 82-87). They killed the car because a family car was hurting sports car sales. (even thought they say it was to go to FWD) Anyone can add more inches, but to make MORE power, MORE efficiently and do it in smaller, lighter packages to not affect handling and allow good fuel economy w/ boost is not falling back in weakness or resting on laurels, it's thinking forward. Chrysler really needs to step up to this thinking. Mopars fix is add 2 cylinders...it's very 1970s engineering and this is why they struggle every 10-15 years to stay relevant.
Sorry, I love the rams, but Cummins is the best thing they have and its a turbo 6! Think about it!
