In addition to vehicles on display, each of the Chrysler Group brands will offer a variety of events to this year’s Dream Cruise.

"While no details of the truck are known yet, a completely new one-metric-ton pickup is set to start production fairly soon;" "Chrysler has not built a lighter pickup than the Ram 1500 since dropping the Dakota; this vehicle would likely be closer to the old A-100 or Ram 50 slots."

Why is 'one-metric-ton pickup' used as a reference for a smaller truck? Does it refer to the curb weight of the truck? A D50 may have weighed close to one-metric-ton (2,200 lbs.), but I’m pretty sure my 1988 Dakota SWB was nowhere near that curb weight.

When Jeep Comanche used that designation, it denoted the 2,200 lb payload and was used primarily to compete with the Nissan and Toyota trucks which also used that weight rating. It's an international rating and might signal an effort to export this truck.

OK, If I remember right the payload on my Dakota was 925 lbs or close enough to a 1/2 ton. While the payload on my D150 was about 1,250 lbs, what we used to call a heavy half.

Nope, they meant Power Ram, the concept truck from awhile back is my guess.

My HOPE though is that they are finally going to show the Power Wagon that we saw at the dealer show a couple years back... THAT THING, was badass.

There is no way Ram would ever build a truck that badass. I'm thinking it's going to be something similar to the so-called "new" Charger they showed at the LX Spring Festival. Chrysler's definition of a concept, does not jive with mine. Oh well.

It should be a 6.4-powered half ton sport truck, possibly even with a retro name such as Warlock or Lil Red Express.

I thought it would be at auto show season, but it seems to be coming sooner. This was hinted at by a Chrysler exec a few months ago.

Or conversely, Import it....

Toluca is looking for something to do from what I have gathered :)

It would be nice to see the 392 in a half ton sport truck for under 40K. Put that little Ford Tremor in it's place. :)
