Off Roading with the 2021 Bronco

I can't wait to test out one of these new Broncos. And as always for your viewing entertainment. Link

RE: 2022 Ford Super Duty interior?

I guess it depends on how well you do on your buying and selling but in my case the longer I keep a truck the more it costs me to own. I noticed that as well when I owned Fords, but that changed when I bought a Ram. :B LOL... The recall king! :B

RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

We got 3 Christmas cards 1.5 months after the postmark date; I doubt EV postal vehicles will make delivery’s slower. Pony Express would have been faster. Well there's no De Joy in that. :) I think the new Admin will make the necessary changes to bring the USPS back to normal. LMAO... You mean Uncle Joe

RE: How dependable are newer trucks with higher mileage?

Other than the constant annoying problems, the Ram is great. I just wish it didn't have the constant annoying problems. I don't understand how a truck can be considered great with constant annoying problems or perhaps my expectations are simply too high.

RE: The Future of Chryslers SRT Division

That's what Im saying, the AMG decals tacked onto regular cars ruins the real AMG cars....of which are very few left that are produced. Ah, gotcha. I agree, just like they shouldn't tack a "Z06 performance package" on to a regular Vette. A Z06 is not a regular Vette and it's performance proves it.

RE: The Future of Chryslers SRT Division

To work in the SRT group, you had to be a gearhead. What they have done is distributing the SRT design work to functional groups. It's a tremendous cost savings, HOWEVER, IMO, the SRT badge will quickly drift off to being a pretty badge. Exactly what happened to AMG with Mercedes. AMG is now just a trim level. The 4.0L V8 Biturbo, the 5.5L V8 Biturbo, the 6.0L V12 Biturbo would prove you wrong. Having said that I'm not a Mercedes/AMG fan and the europeans can keep their cars.

RE: Toyota Sequoia vs Chevy Surburban

The most useless “comparison” I have ever seen considering there is nothing comparable. Even though the Sequoia is a 2021 model it came out in 2007 and other than some cosmetic updates it has not changed since. The 5.7l is bulletproof but has always been thirsty, especially when still mated to a 6 speed and 4.30 gears. Pitting it against a brand new diesel with a 10 speed proves nothing. Not even apples to oranges. Diesel will always get better mileage than gas when towing as will new versus old technology. And this is the whole point of the comparison! Bingo! One of these days when we're all pumping unicorn farts into our vehicles, the anti diesel guys will realize we should have bene batting for the same team the whole time! Until a diesel engine design can eliminate the DPF I don't see these diesel's very friendly to the soccer mom market.

RE: 2020 sales

You guys are too funny! Thanks for being a good sport!! :C :) Cummins12V98 is a good sport but on a serious note (:B) he must have took a vacation from marketing the Ram/Cummins platform since their sales numbers have slipped.

RE: 2020 sales

Ram doesn't need a 10 speed tra:Bnsmission until cummins12V98 buy's one and then the raves begin. You know the drill! :B He is waiting for Ram to come out with SuperDuty style mirrors, before he gets a new truck. Then he'll say those Ram antlers are for hanging on the wall! :B So, anyone else want to join the entertainment?? :C Jerry I just booked a plant tour. I will report back on all the top secret plans the tour guide discloses. :B The tour lady at the cummins plant. :W

RE: 2020 sales

GM HD trucks outsold Ford HD trucks by a huge margin in Q4 2020. GM (Chevy/GMC) HD trucks 69,500 Ford HD trucks 47,610 Ram HD trucks 35,477 I find it interesting that Ford has been steadily losing marketshare to Ram for a number of years. However, if Ram doesn't get an 8-10 sp tranny bolted to their Cummins soon (not to mention a 100% cab update), I can very easily see this trend reversing.The CUMMINS does not need more gears.To a point I agree. I've been very happy with the 6-sp in our Cummins. However, my comment is more about "sales and marketing" than raw performance. There's a big reason why the Big 3 are in a torque war with their diesels. High torque numbers sell more trucks. Same applies to the number of transmission gears. The average Joe has been led to believe more transmission gears equates to better fuel economy and a smoother, more efficient driving experience---doesn't matter whether it's true or not. Bottom line, it's much cheaper for Ram to bolt an 10 speed tranny to their Cummins and let the number "10" speak for itself, then spend millions and millions of marketing dollars trying to convince everyone their 6-speed tranny is fine as-is. Marketing sometimes has nothing to do performance. Sometimes it's all about perception. Ram didn't need to bump up the torque in their diesel trucks.... But they did!

RE: Ford Going All Electric in 2030 Too...

They recently installed a dozen Tesla chargers at a local HEB grocery store and I've noticed that there always 50%-90% full when I walk into the grocery store. Approx 30-40 minutes later I'm walking out to my truck and there's the same people in their cars waiting for the charging process. I always make a point to grin and shake my head at these people as I'm loading the groceries as it's a bit comical and it's obvious I wouldn't fit into this crowd catagory. Bottom line I don't have the patience to just set around the charging station waiting to get a charge on my EV so charging at home would be my only option and that simply wouldn't work for my needs.

RE: The Future of Chryslers SRT Division

Not quite axed, just no longer independent. Stellantis, like any other company, won't say no to profit. If we look at SRT's lineup: - Charger / Challenger, based on early 2000s E-Class - Grand Cherokee / Durango, again, old ML / GL platform - Wrangler, existing platform Formula is just shove the biggest engine that fits, and bolt on the best suspension components, on either a paid off platform, or one that's cost-shared. It takes very little to float SRT, but $$$ profit. Sounds like a good plan to me. I just spent a week in a new Bimmer 530i. I can say the "old" chassis that is under the 06 SRT we had and the 2016 SRT gives up NOTHING to the new bimmer for handling, NVH and solid chassis feel. Sometimes the wheel doesn't need re-invented if you still have a great wheel... Yeah I like stuffing a big engine in a car. Sounds like my philosophy. Not sure if the guys across the pond agree.

RE: 1991 Ford IDI engines/trucks for towing

LOL... Says the guy who recently purchased a 1980's Chevy truck. JMO... JK Hahaha, touche! I was waiting for someone to say that! I have towed the boat with it a couple times last summer. Now it's in 1000 pieces in the shop, almost ready for paint. Looking forward to the pics when its all done. I'm sure it's a fun project for you and your son.
