I am proud to one of the 10%. My garage is too small for the wife to park her Escape beside the Ram.


IMO this 'Tremor' announcement is great news. As long as the manufacturers continue to compete in the sport truck class, we the truck buyers continue to have great offerings to choose from.

If the Tremor turns out to be all that it is hyped to be, then the Ram boys just may have to respond with something that turns the table back in our direction......like a 392 in the Ram.

that's ok, angie traded her 2000 jeep grand Cherokee in for a 2005 Toyota 4 runner that just simply WONT DIE! Im gassing for her to get back in to possibly a cpo srt jeep. I do have to disagree with you on this Tremor elevating Ram to turn the wick up.
This Tremor
1. is an exact engine/drivetrain offered in other models
2. its shoe horned into a rcsb
3. they put 4.10 Rear on it
4. console shifter, bucket seats
sounds familiar yet?
IMHO this Tremor is out to take on the R/T directly. Something Dodge has been doing for well over 5 years. If anything Ford is just playing catchup imho. NOw with all the crosstalk/misinformation/hate/overinflation I gotta admit this thread is starting to smell and reek of DEMOCRAT

I totally agree that Ford is playing catch up to the R/T. I think it's wishful thinking that Dodge will answer back with any HP. But it would be nice if they did.

I agree, ford is playing catch-up, and they have a lot of that to do. Ram is the only truck you can buy right now with almost 400 horses for under 30k (IE The Express). An engine with that much horsepower is a very good base. Not to mention that Dodge has been building sport trucks for well over 20 years.

Though the 392 engine would be badazz in the Ram, its definitely gonna price me out. It would be just another repeat and expensive one for what the gen 4 guys are dealing now with the vvt imho. Pretty much destined for boost. Id be happy with just the ole 6.1 SRT motor if it keeps costs down for the average Joe. Being able to shove a lumpy cam in her like an Spartan Max..something to be said about that
Wait till they release the chevy 6.2 or if they haven't already. Old technology that gets that kind of mileage, got me confused that's for damn sure. I can imagine them boys shoving cams all day long, and I gotta look and listen to this shit everytime I go to the track... Yup 6.1 for us average folk and keep the prices the same dammit! If any, it will be GM forcing Dodge to make a move, not Ford imo

It still seems to defeat the purpose of buying a truck...

ok i'm kinda confused maybe someone can enlighten me. doesn't the dodge pentastar v6 already have over 300 hp in a ram now? is the ecoboost ford's competition for the pentastar? i have the truck that the raptor tried to compete with. kind of. i have the power wagon and i think ford went the other direction than dodge did with the power wagon. the raptor was more of a desert truck and the power wagon more of a crawling bush truck. that being said i think the tremor is just ford trying to catch a corner of the market that nobody else has yet. the tuner car crowd. you know the ones. they guys that have the huge fartcans coming out the back of a compact car with a huge spoiler like the one off a 69 daytona superbird, neon lights underneath and 22 inch rims with rubberbands for tires. it looks to me like ford is goin after the tuner crowd with a truck. but isn't dodge kind of doin the same with the pentastar? i may be wrong and i'm not trying to offend anyone here. if i am right and the pentastar is the ecoboost competition than dodge may be lacking by not doing a sport tuner truck with the pentastar to directly compete with the tremor.
