My wife and I are loving the Ram Sport. It's between the Brilliant Black and the Deep Cherry Red Pearl.
In a nutshell, we love this truck from top to bottom, also the pricing. The interior is the best in its class bar none.
However...my wife and I are also VERY fond of the Toyota Tundra Crewmax. We have 3 children, 8, 4, and 2. We have a 2009 Chevrolet Traverse that has served us well with the carseats and all the other baby goodies. But...we feel that a truck offers us far more utility being home owners and all. It also helps that these trucks look incredible also.
The knock on the Tundras is the interior. Not entirely...more specifically the driver's cluster as a whole. It's FUGLY to say the least. I don't know what Toyota was thinking. Not only that, but Toyota seems far too proud of their pickup as their prices are almost fixed. From what I've gathered...they don't seem likely to give you much of a break from their pricing. With the Ram, it's well documented that you can get as much as $10K off the sticker....at least close to it.
The Ram Sport Crew we've liked was at $37K with a touch screen radio with back up camera, black leather or VERY dark charcoal gray and bluetooth with the chrome wheels. Take off all the cash back and incentives...looks like a bargain.
Ram also bests the Tundra with the coil springs. But...the Tundra sports a 6 speed tranny. However, the Ram does get a 6 speed in 2012 so I could wait for that. It might come at the expense of some incentives however.
From a pure looks standpoint...we like the Crewmax Tundra more. We love the looks of the Ram Sport Crew also.
So with all this said, what kind of pointers or recommendations can you make to help us out here. My wife and I are really overwhelmed with it all as we plan on keeping this vehicle for a LOOONG time unlike the Chevy Traverse. We'll either be selling the Traverse or trading it in...whichever garners a better deal.
Thanks so much! I look forward to conversing with you.
