The second round of the MI Auto Times Competition May the Best Truck Win
features the Dodge Ram 1500 SLT takes on the Toyota Tundra Regular Cab.
DETROIT, M.I. -- MI Auto Times selected two more popular trucks for the
second round of the "May the Best Truck Win" competition, this time the
Dodge Ram 1500 SLT and the Toyota Tundra Regular Cab.
The first round of competition featured the GMC Sierra SLE overtaking the
Ford F150. The editors at MI Auto Times worked many tireless nights to see
that an objective winner between the two trucks was selected in the first
round, and the second round of competition was no cakewalk.
The MI Auto Times May the Best Truck Win Competition rates trucks based on
a set of categories, and awards stars based on each truck's specifications
provided by each truck's automaker. The categories are value, power,
comfort, and factory warranty. The highest possible rating in each category
is four stars.
The value category assigns a star rating based on the national promotions
offered and estimated cost of ownership. The power category awards stars
based on payload, towing, horsepower, engine size, and
torque. The comfort category judges by looking at the truck's interior,
safety equipment and integrated, user-friendly technology and entertainment
features. The final category, factory warranty, assesses how automakers
back their trucks.
In the power category both the Dodge Ram Mi and the Toyota Tundra Detroit
earned 3 ½ stars, making it a tie. With its 4.7-liter V8 engine, the Dodge
Ram Michigan has more displacement capacity and therefore more power to its
engine than the 4.6-liter V8 of the Toyota Tundra. Both vehicles kick out
the same amount of horsepower at 310, but the
Dodge Ram MI has more torque than the Toyota Tundra Michigan At these model
levels, the Toyota Tundra was the champion tower with a towing capacity of
7,500 and also had a larger payload capacity of 1,795. The Dodge Ram MI had
a 6,650 towing capacity and 1,340 payload capacity, which comes out to 850
pounds less towing ability and 455 pounds shy of beating the Toyota Tundra
In the value category the Toyota Tundra's earned 3 ½ stars against the
Dodge Ram's 3 stars. Though there are no national offers currently listed
for the Toyota Tundra, even with the Dodge Ram's GMAC bonus cash of $1,000
on all Ram 1500 models still puts it at $100 higher than the Toyota Tundra
Detroit. Also, the Toyota Tundra lists a better miles-per-gallon rating of
15 city/20 highway against the Dodge Ram's 14 city/19 highway. That equates
to 17 combined mpg for the Toyota Tundra versus 15 combined mpg for the
Dodge Ram MI. Furthermore, estimated annual fuel cost of the Toyota Tundra
Michigan is $323 less than the Dodge Ram.
In the comfort category the Dodge Ram earned 4 stars against the Toyota
Tundra's 3 stars. The Dodge Ram has more standard comfort features than the
Toyota Tundra Detroit and they include: power door looks, power mirrors,
power windows, power sliding rear window, cruise control and heated
mirrors. Both have standard MP3 capability but only the Dodge Ram offers
one year of SIRIUS satellite radio service for free; the Toyota Tundra
requires a monthly fee for satellite radio and $449 cost3.
In the warranty category the Dodge Ram earned 3 ½ stars against the Toyota
Tundra's 3 stars. The Dodge Ram is now backing its trucks with a new
5-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, plus a 3-year/36,000-mile
basic limited warranty which provides bumper-to-bumper coverage from the
body to the electric system. The Toyota Tundra MI also shares a
3-year/36,000-mile basic limited warranty but only has a 60-month/60,000
mile Powertrain warranty. Corrosion coverage on the Toyota Tundra is for
unlimited miles but ends after 60 months compared to the Dodge Ram
Michigan, which has corrosion coverage for 5 years/100,000 miles.
The second round winner is: Dodge Ram 1500 SLT, The most awarded Ram truck

2013 Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado 0-60 MPH Mashup Test & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ram 1500 Pick-up ( you may remember it
as a Dodge) is virtually all new. OK, the HEMI engine option remains but
same as the new Ram 1500 is now available with the Chrysler Pentastar V-6
engine and a HEMI V-8. But for 2013 the Ram also gets a new and class first
8 speed transmission, and optional self-leveling air suspension and
(according to Ram) best in class fuel economy. Of course we wanted to know
know just how fast the new Ram 1500 is to 60 MPH and perhaps more
importantly how it competes with the best selling vehicle in America...the
Ford F-150. We also wanted to know how it stacks up against the Chevy
Silverado. If you are curious as well, watch this exclusive TFLcar mashup
review as we test and review all three classic American pick-up trucks and
see which one is fastest to 60 MPH.
2013 Ram 3500 heavy duty pickup takes on the Ike Gauntlet towing test ( Episode 1 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2013 Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn Crew Cab
Heavy Duty Pickup is built to tow. So we decided to try to tow with it up
one of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion, Colorado
to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of
11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test the
most powerful of pickups. Is the Ram 3500 Heavy duty up to the task of
towing a 17,000 pound horse trailer to the top of the tunnel.
In fact according to Ram this diesel mobster dually with 850 lb-ft or
torque can tow up to 30,000 pounds. That's enough weight to need a
commercial truckers license in most states. In this first TFLtruck Ike
Gauntlet video review we weight the truck and trailer and test the 2013 Ram
3500 Laramie Longhorn Crew Cab to see how fast it will pull a 17,000 pound
horse trailer from 0-60 MPH with the help of our friend Kent from (

New 2012 Dodge RAM 1500 - Proven
The 2013 Ram's new optional air suspension handles load-leveling duties and
rises to five heights: two off-road tippy-toe settings, normal, aero (for
highway-speed driving), and a kneeling position that makes it easier to
load people and cargo. No capacity figures were provided (manufacturers
like to wait until the start of production in case they need to tweak the
numbers to trump the competition), but we're promised the load-carrying and
trailer-tow ratings won't be reduced for the air suspension. Company
officials also promise that rigorous development testing ensures the rubber
air bladders will last the useful life of the truck, but while I've seen
original coil springs last 80-100 years, I haven't found many 50-year-old
air springs still riding high.
