MI Auto Times Fuels Competition with "May the Best Truck Win" One winner
will be selected as the "MI Auto Times Best Truck." To ensure a fair
comparison, Readers who disagree with the MI Auto Times decision are
welcome to comment and voice their opinions.
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

TOYOTA TUNDRA MPG Buttons Mod "Drive Monitor Switch"
This MOD adds the MPG Buttons [(aka "Drive Monitor Switch" part
#84977-0C020) - the older model switch (84977-0C100) will work, but the
only difference is: The "Setup" button (3rd from top) says just "Setup" on
the 0C100 switch, and "Setup US/M" on the 0C020 switch]. (see 1st picture
below) This will allow you to change the display up on the "Accessory
Meter" which displays your clock, temperature, current MPG's
(instantaneous), Average MPG's, and Distance-to-empty (miles left on
tank)...located at the top/middle of your dash. This part can be found at
Partznet.com or through a dealer like TRDsparks.com, usually around $75.
(NOTE - Some members have found the older switch [0C100] for much cheaper
than the newer switch [0C020])
This MOD WILL APPLY to GRADE, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road (SR5 trim),
Tundra T-Force, and ROCK WARRIOR model trucks that have either NO buttons
on their switch (ie BLANKS) OR have only the SETUP button (which changes
the temp from F to C), OR have only the SONAR and/or SETUP buttons on their
Toyota Tundra SR5 2014 - Test Off road
The Toyota Tundra may have been the Motor Trend 2008 Truck of the Year, but
the full-size truck enters the 2014 model year with reduced pricing on
certain trims. The significantly refreshed 2014 Toyota Tundra will now
carry a base price of $26,915 for a regular-cab rear-drive model with a
4.0-liter V-6. Toyota isn't going to leave the luxury truck market to GMC,
Ford, Chevrolet, and Ram, though -- the 2014 Tundra Platinum and 1794
Edition will carry identical MSRPs of $48,315 in CrewMax form, with
four-wheel drive and a 5.7-liter V-8. All prices include the $995
destination charge. Toyota claims that the 2014 Tundra lineup's prices are,
on average, $263 lower than comparable 2013 models. The 2014 Tundra is
offered in SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum, and 1794 Edition forms, as a regular
cab, double cab, or CrewMax. The double cab and CrewMax are offered with a
bench or bucket seats in the front. Engines include a 270-hp 4.0-liter V-6
for the base SR trim as well as a 310-hp 4.6-liter V-8 for the SR and SR5
trims. Of course, the engine we'd pick is the 381-hp 5.7-liter V-8, which
is offered on every trim from the SR to the Platinum and 1794 Edition
trucks. The V-6 uses a five-speed automatic while the V-8s get a six-speed

Big Trucks Duke it Out: Full Size Pickup Comparison
MORE FULL SIZE TRUCK COMPARO @ INSIDELINE.COM:
We see it every Friday during our evening commute. A stream of vehicles
choking the freeway, headed out to the Mojave Desert or the Colorado River
for some well-earned weekend stress relief.
The fun varies, from camping to dirt-bike riding to water-skiing. But the
vehicle that invariably gets tasked with hauling the corresponding
equipment is a full-size pickup truck. You know, like the 2009 Chevrolet
Silverado 1500, 2009 Dodge Ram 1500, 2009 Ford F-150 or 2009 Toyota Tundra.
Sure, we talk about the virtues of the minivan as a family hauler, and
there are many. But the minivan stands no chance against a looming 25-foot
camping trailer. And SUVs are easily flummoxed by motocross bikes and the
need to carry their smelly gas cans (or anything that's remotely dirty,
actually) in the vehicle's cargo area.
There's nothing like a pickup, with its big bin in back that doesn't care
what you toss into it. And the truck is sure to be around long after the
full-frame SUV falls completely out of favor and descends into the
three-row car-based sensibility that is the crossover.
