    Right, has nothing to do with the thread topic, just shilling. So what does trolling have to do with the Dodge Ram?

    It will take time, but the reality is that pick up owners will have to choose an alternative sooner or later.

    This cohort is not likely interested in "saving the planet". But there are some strong selling points in this demographic:
    -instant torque
    -plug-out for work and play tools
    -mobile battery back-up for home
    -energy independence

    I think GM - Hummer will have a winning truck.

    unless you recall that the hummer, when GM tried to sell the line for cheap to the Chinese, the Chinese immediately saw it was hideous for its high drag CD - and so very inefficient. The Chinese saw these Hulks languishing in back Lots unable to be sold. Very few wanted them due to their high operating cost, poor resale and inefficiency, kind of like hydrogen cars.

    not likely, and if you were to buy one, you would truly learn how the name Ram applies

    Actually only the name Hummer was sold to the Chinese.
