While surfing the internet, we came across this video showing a day in the life of a Toyota San Antonio factory employee. Check it out:
Another month is in the books for 2015 and the sales numbers are now out. While some companies will claim poor weather had an effect on their sales, let’s take a closer look at the numbers and draw some conclusions. Like is Ram maxing out demand? Will GM ever consolidate their numbers to show how much they are trouncing Ford? Toyota continues to see sales increases and nobody seems to care.
Type the word “diesel” into any Tundra fan site or forum and you will immediately get comments declaring you a fool or suggesting if Toyota doesn’t offer the engine, they will never buy another Tundra pickup. The diesel topic has exploded over the past few years and helping fan the flames is the 2015 Ram EcoDiesel. As the only half-ton diesel on the market, rival truck fans have seemingly put the truck on a pedestal to use for/against their diesel argument. What makes it so polarizing? The engine. Is it really that much better? Let’s take a closer look.
Wanted to update everyone that we are currently editing a video and writing a review on the 2015 Ram EcoDiesel we just had. With travel coming up on Wednesday to the Chicago Auto Show, our hope is to have the article up today or tomorrow morning. If not, it will be next week.
The Ram EcoDiesel just got dropped off and I took some quick photos with my phone. It is an Outdoorsman trim level and with a crew cab. Listed price on the sticker is $50,790. It has the luxury group, comfort group, trailer tow and brake control group, 3.92 rear axle and the Uconnect system.
