    Can we end the crosshair discussion? It's been beat to death at this point. They've had it both ways over the years. We get it. Lol

    Exactly my point. Times change, demographics change, and styling change... history repeats itself over and over.

    That’s life... the lack of the cross hair is not going to make it any worse or any better in terms of what a truck can and can’t do. People will still buy Ram Trucks with or without a cross hair grille, that has been proven many many times over.

    Except your 1937 pic isn't a Dodge it's a Plymouth.

    Thanks for the correction. Here is a Dodge.

    They are very similar.

    And this is a 41 Dodge

    [​IMG]

    And a 36

    My point is still more than valid :)

    Yep you're right. For me if the truck looks good without a specific design cue then who cares? It still looks good. I recently learned the insiders said it was a slam dunk. These people are mostly true mopar followers/fans themselves. I just hope hope we see an updated HEMI and some cool features. I've seen the headlights and taillights revealed "through the winds of fate" and the sleek body. I'm not worried but I need January to come now.

    I believe it is a 37 Dodge... but feel free to correct me if it is not. I’m not a follower of old Dodge Trucks from that era.

    I don't believe the middle one is a Dodge. I may be wrong though.

    Wow...if those are Dodges and Plymoutheseseses...Plymouthii?? They sure are very similar! I wonder if people complained about badge engineering as much back then? :)

    This I can get behind - similar to Sony TVs that have the ability to play 2 different images depending on where each person is sitting.

    Now that, is something I didn't think about. It'd totally work too, if the touch-screen were programmable to that degree. I don't think you'd want someone accidentally pausing or fast-forwarding your media, when they wanted to just turn up the a/c, though. lol

    Similar to "Sync" for Climate Control, it wouldn't be hard to have a hard button determine who has control of the screen.

    Probably not, but would you really want that added complexity to a vehicle? "I don't want to push a button just to use my uConnect; nobody else has to do that," or w/e, complaints, because people are inherantly lazy most of the time & don't want to add to a process they've become used to. lol -- Like the perceived 'problem' with having the Dial instead of a more traditional shifter.

    Where there's innovation there's complaints ;)

    Yup things move on something different comes on and people will complain and then you end up getting used to it because you tried it! Like me and the rotary shifter, haven't missed a shift in months. It's better to please the majority than it is to try and please everybody. Because when you try and please everybody you end up pleasing nobody.

    Something that would be groundbreaking for me would be a way to disable devices while the vehicle is in motion. Sort of an cellphone blocking feature that would have some type of parental control system. I am not talking about just disabling the WiFi hotspot feature but actually blocking cellphones, tablets, and computers within the vehicle from receiving any outside signal while the vehicle is in motion. Maybe a Disable Telephonic Device functionality so to speak.

    Sort of counter-productive if they want to keep selling the on-board WiFi.

    I'm not understanding what purpose that feature would serve. Why block devices from receiving any signal while the vehicle is in motion? And if you do that, what purpose the the WiFi hotspot feature serve?
