i can tell u this much i no ull hate it but the tundra is very fast off the line

but i think those numbers on all the trucks are wrong...now way the tundra is 7.2 0-60 deff not... in the 6's for sure

I'm in the same boat with you...I'm interested in the ram sport but I need to test drive one but I know I will be impressed coming from a 2010 F150 with the 5.4 motor.

don't count on Rams changing right away, engine & transmission wise

you should be able to order a 2012 Ram JUNE 1, actual production starts July 4th

?? wouldn't it be nice to see a Ram SRT8 w/ 6.4L engine & a ZF 8 speed with the 3.90 or 4.11 Dana/Spicer Limited Slip or Posi rear end??

NEAR FUTURE Engines
Jeep is coming out with a 6.4L in at least 1 model


NEAR FUTURE Transmissions
Eight speed and nine speed automatics ZF and Chrysler worked together on a tough and sophisticated eight speed automatic transmission, with a torque rating of a rumored 650 (or higher) pound-feet. It uses several planetary gearsets, each of which costs about as much as a whole light duty transmission. This will be used with the Pentastar V6 in Chrysler 300, as well as on SRT8 and other cars. (Indeed, oh2o revealed that, on the rear-drive cars, the eight-speed would first be used with the V6 when model year 2012 starts, the V8s will still all be five-speeds, including SRTs).
--------------------------------------------------------
Chrysler/Fiat plans
The Ram Light and Heavy Duty pickups are scheduled to receive "major modifications" in 2012, according to Chrysler's 2010-14 Product Plan presented today at Chrysler's Headquarters in Michigan.

"Our objective is to emphasize our commitment to the commercial market," said Joe Veltri, Chrysler's head of product planning. "To make sure we keep Ram at the top of its game, each truck will receive a major modification in 2012, including powertrain and technology changes. There's also the possibility of a light-duty diesel."

A diesel for the Light Duty Ram pickup would be sourced from Fiat.

In May, Chrysler canceled a planned contract with Cummins to supply a V-8 diesel. Cummins is still expected to supply diesel engines for Ram Heavy Duty pickups.

Earlier today, Fred Diaz, president and CEO of the Ram brand, confirmed Ram Heavy Duty pickups will receive a new 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 gas engine rated at approximately 450-horsepower.

i know when i bought mine the deal i made the ram was about $8,000 less than the tundra.so even if the tundra is .3-.4 tenths quicker you can easily pick it up and then some with a few minor bolt ons.and as far as a 6spd ram is just relabeling the 5spd as a 6spd because the 5spd has 6 forward so same trans new classification.

there are plenty of 4th gens on here running low 14s to high 13s (1/4 mile) with only minor bolt-ons and a Predator.

have you checked out the 5.7 HEMI threads or the drag racing threads?

If your're that worried about 0-60 times, you can change out the gears up to a 4.10 or a 4.56. The only real thing that the Tundra has is their 4.30 gears and a six speed tranny. In all reality, Rams have one of the best interiors in the business now.
