    I am old enough to remember when the Chrysler 300M made their list... Next year the Charger should be on there for the pure fact that someone is still making a car like that!

    Charger could also be there for being one of the best-built, most reliable cars on the road right now. Did I say that? Yep!

    I was wrong.

    I seriously doubted Ram becoming a stand alone brand.

    650-700k sales a year, back to back trucks of the year, new exciting product coming (Rebel TRX could be a game changer).

    I was a big dummy.

    Car and Driver writes of Ram 1500:

    "American cars once knew luxury. They could be smooth, quiet, and powerful things. Think of a 1950s Cadillac or Lincoln—cushy domestic behemoths with burbling V-8s and bodies bolted to full-length frames. We’d pilot these across far expanses of land, ferrying our family and our imaginations to places we’d rather be. We can still have nice things. But now we find them in trucks."​

    I totally agree. I've been saying the same for awhile.

    Give the hemi 300 a little more interior room and you got the perfect highway cruiser ferrying our family and our imaginations to places we’d rather be.

    Heck...if my ride is Ram*, I'm happy on the journey. :)
    * Or any other fine Mopar.

    We have taken our ram and challenger on a cross country journey, ram was probably more comfortable but the challenger is way more fun.

    Speaking of fun, any rumblings about a 1500 Sport, a la Street Truck, a la an anti-Rebel??? In a few years, once I'm done with my Durango Mods, I really want a Street RAM 1500... Sport suspension (air adjustable would be nice), the 22x10's that are available now, with the 6.4L... You know something more focused on Sport... Man, I wish there was, like a division that could develop it for like, Street, and like, Racing,... :)
