I watched the first 10 min of it and after listening to him blab and blab and say nothing of any importance, I quit watching. Maybe the good facts were all at the end of the video but the first half didn't interest me enough to keep watching for another 10 more minutes.

I muted the sound after 2 minutes and closed out after 5 minutes. Yadda, yadda, yadda.

Good for those that just want a truck for yard work and every day use. My opinion

35' Teton Home Experience 3 slides, its not a trailer its a home

So as a TV and just about everything else, why not just get the 2500 with a hemi? Bigger brakes, heavy duty driveline. Same quiet cab. You might loose a few MPG but there would be no need to mod anything to tow anything that a 1500 could tow.

He talked on and on about 'really getting what Truck people want and need', but this new 1500 is geared more to those who want a truck that is more like a car, not to those who need a truck that is truly suited to use as a TRUCK.

Most of the facts about the hardware parts and fuel economy innovations are in the second half.

I'm glad the days of Daimler and Cerebus are behind us. It is evident that the new management is here for the long haul.
