Hard to say. The RAM will get two engine upgrades, a new transmission, Variable Line Pressure in their other transmissions, a beefier frame, and supposedly a "significant" upgrade to the interior. I don't know if Chrysler's new axle plant will be contributing to the 2008 RAM, but if it does the new designs are estimated to reduce friction losses by 20%.
The Tundra will have a following just because it says Toyota on it and will likely continue to pick up former disgruntled Chevy, Dodge, Ford and Nissan owners. Some buyers will be attracted to the Tundra because they need to drive a truck that currently claims the best spec's, or is faster.
The Tundra still has to prove itself and that may take a while. There are many who have noticed that despite the Titan's attributes, the big Nissan truck has not really done so well in reliability and overall customer satisfaction (gas mileage, for example).
Toyota doesn't have nearly the same level of negative association that Nissan does, so in my opinion the Tundra won't suffer in the perception department. That being said, Toyota is beginning to show signs of over confidence and maybe a touch of GM-like arrogance. Hope it doesn't happen because most Toyota products are very good, if not pricey.

I have to say, as someone who loves the F-150, I was impressed when I saw the Ram at the Auto Show. The 3 cab sizes, the 3 engines and now with a capability for cleaner burning fuel, all make it a good competitor. I also felt the front grill really added to the muscleness of the car. You can get a sneak peek of it here:

Does anyone know why the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 doesn't have a red line at the end of the tachtometer like most vehicles do?

our 2009 Ram 1500 just turned 14,000 after 9 months. around town i'm averaging 16-17 with some weeks getting in the high 17s. weve taken it on several road trips and averaged 22.4 on the last trip of 635 miles. thats driving between 65-75 mph by the way. on one trip pulling a single horse trailer i got 19.2 on country roads. this 2009 is one sweet truck. no problems at all and everything seems to be put together with real quality. so far its been quieter and smoother than any other truck weve been in. it rides better than any of our ford or lincoln cars and handles better too. if we didn't need a one ton truck on the farm wed buy another 1500!!!
