I want to know who thought that putting a turn dial shifter in a truck was a good idea and that everybody would like it or at least the majority. I have not found one person who said they liked it over the counsel shifter. The designer and people who approved it need to be slapped unless they make having the counsel shifter an option.

Not just the artical but the fact that the times were quicker along with towing. The last artical from a couple years ago the Ford was on Top in these areas.

I read this, seems the testers are turning the radio knob, instead of the rotary shifter

Nope, good to see *competition! All these trucks are awesome and you can bet the GM product being introduced next week will be very nice also.

Congrats Ram.


*Besides, every other truck on the road is an F-150.
