7. 2013 RAM 1500

 

It might just be an update, but it’s a big one. The 2013 RAM 1500 is the first truck to offer an 8-speed automatic transmission, something that will help the V6 model achieve 20 percent better fuel economy and the V8 get 10 percent better numbers.

Other major changes to the 2013 model year truck include an active air suspension that can raise or lower the truck (even at speed), active grille shutters, a thermal management system to heat up fluids faster, start-stop engine technology plus the ability to turn the truck into a rolling wi-fi hotspot.

    Why?  Porche and Diesel are two words that don’t belong in the same sentence describing a vehicle.

     bizzarre ranking if Ive ever seen one. The Viper makes sense at #1, but the rest is hard to find reasonable. The new impala is #6? Below a fyling car and the Infiniti Leaf? Wow. But at least he managed to get in a dig at the Impala and GM by criticizing the “cheap” controls.

    Hey Rick –  Porsche and Diesel go together and have for quite some time –  In the 1960 Porsche made and sold a Diesel Tractor !  True !

    Sounds like the 2013 Mustang is quite nice offering a 440 HP engine that will surely get the blood boiling for those loyalists.  I wish Ford would bring back a Galaxy 500 with some balls or maybe a ranchero with 440 HP!!! sounds like a winner to me.

    I’ve seen the Fiskar Atlantic driving around near the factory. IMO the styling is terrible, particularly the front. What were they thinking?

    My Juke does 0-60 in 7.3 (I have timed slightly faster), and is 35 grand less.  Really!

  • Riverborn75

    Yeah I was refering to the porsche cayanne diesel.

    Lool the new Impala has stolen the Kia Optima’s look and feel, Americans always steal ideas, that’s how they run!
