No confusion about this marketing. It's called saturation. Get as much out there in as many ways as possible to grab attention and get buyers.

Ram has promised to unveil at least one new truck line at every auto show this year. So far, you have Tradesman, newly re-engineered 3500, and now this. I'll be curious to see if anything really is that different from what is already there.

I'm sure it will sell well but I don't like it. I paid extra for my Sport now it looks like the cheap truck. Way to make Sport owners pissed Ram!

Makes you wonder if maybe it costs less to produce a sport look but they charge extra. WTF??

As I'm already a RCSB w/Hemi kind of guy,,,, this looks pretty good to me!

Especially when my SLT stickered out at 34k

The vinyl seats would be el-sucko, but considering the sticker price,,,, slap some nice seat covers on it and smile!!!!

I had a heck of a time finding a RCSB 2WD w/a hemi,,, Only 1 lot in Houston that I looked at had ANY! (Both were black,,, so, black it is!)
If I was lucky enough to find a few RCSB's, they were 'base' ST's with a 6 banger... Just not what I wanted!!!!

Well I think its pretty cool. Looks like the took a regular cab truck and the most popular options and dumped them into a truck. Slapping a new name out there I don't think it's entirely necessary but, I do think it serves the purpose of modders.

I just wish that I knew when I purchased that I would want color keyed bumpers etc.

Not a big fan of it cause it cheapens the R/T and there will probably be a lot of R/T posers. But this would be pretty cool to put tons of performance mods into so it would be a drag truck(think lx 5.0 fox body mustang) and keep the R/T as a daily. Wish the adventurer(express) and tradesman came in quad and crew cab though

Here's a picture of my new 2011 Ram Express (Adventurer) in front of the dealership just prior to driving it home for the first time:
