My first US built vehicle since 1983 and the quality equals a M-B S550 that cost double. Way to go RAM!
My 4WD 2003 Ford Expedition must have taken three cows worth of leather to upholster. In 10 years (bought new) it still looks great and feels supple and soft. Can't say the about my wife's Volvo of same age. Mechanically all is strong as new. This is my first American made long term ownership, and I'm impressed. I came from a Toyota and at the time needed something stronger. I think its safe to say American made means quality again.

So far I have pulled our 25ft 2001 Excella about 800 mi. with our 2013 1500 Ram 5.7 HEMI and it has been a dream... We are leaving from WNY Late Dec for Big Pine Key via a stop in Georgia and Tallahassee.. I will post a full review but I do expect it to be very positive base on present experience! SO FAR I LOVE THIS RAM

From Toyota's website...

[QUOTE=gmw photos;1362419]Yes, but can you pull your Space Shuttle with the Ram ?


Direct quote from Toyota's website: "The Tundra CrewMax 5.7L V8 is towing far beyond its published towing capacity in a one-time, short-distance event. Never tow beyond a vehicle's published towing capacities."

I'm guessing most trucks could pull the Shuttle under similar conditions.
I wonder what happened to that Tundra after the demo? Did anyone buy it?

I think I read the truck is now a permanent display at the california science center.
