2014 Dodge Ram Diesel
I'm anxiously awaiting the debut of the new 2014 Ram Diesel, with a 8 speed automatic, 240 hp and 420 lbs of torque, it seems a perfect match for towing an Escape. Mileage estimates from 30 highway to 20 city seems to me to be 20 towing on highway. This beats my current 10-13 mpg Ram hemi stats.
It is a $2 k option, well worth it, IMHO. It will also have the new Chrysler Uconnect system which will give you internet on the go and makes the truck a mobile hotspot.
Imagine getting realtime traffic and weather on your in dash GPS screen and then when stopped being able to connect to internet from your trailer with your Iphone or computer, all for about a $1/day. PS, it has the rear view camera also, perfect for hitching.
Due to the pandemic, my life now exists of only 3 days, yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Everything else has been forgotten!
