I will definitely have to look into the Spec’s for this . View attachment 1362 View attachment 1363 View attachment 1364 View attachment 1365
Alright I'm in love already. It's like an abusive relationship, rams are plagued with mechanical problems(generalizing), but I always love them. What's your source for these?

And for the record, I daily a Dodge Dart 2016, so I'm not a Chrysler hater, just always seen too many rams with issues, but still fall in love with them.

Motor1.com , Is where I got the info.

And I just sold my 2000 Dodge Dakota Quad cab with a auto trans and a 4.7 engine with 140,000 miles for $3000 . And never had a problem with the exception of have to unplug all the electric door locks . It was a great truck for 20 long years !

The tiny truck is a rebadged version of the Brazilian-built Fiat Strada. Available now in Mexico. Probably won't go on sell in the US due to the 25% chicken tax.
We need to repeal this chicken tax thing or apply it to something else like . Importing foreign steel .

Saw a 4 door in the wild in camo on the 22nd in Hartland Michigan. Wish i snapped a picture, but was on a call. It is a little taller than the mavrick.

Here’s a shot of the front . View attachment 1371

And you thought the Maverick was cheep . This sells for under $15,000 in South America and Mexico .

As sold in Mexico, it only has a 1.3L I4. 98hp - 94 ft-lb torque. If it was sold in the US I'm sure it would get an upgrade. An upgrade in price as well.

True , but this is probably what we’ll see for the body style since it’s a very recent change . And If they put a little bigger engine in it and make it a hybrid . They‘ll definitely be in the game . Plus both of them are pretty sharp looking .

Everyone has their opinion - But to me, this thing looks like my 5-year old was playing with her crayons and said "daddy, make me this toy for Ken and Barbie" JMO

Like the Santa Cruz, it doesn't look "trucky" enough for me... that and it's a dodge.
True , But they both look very sharp and sporty . Whereas the Maverick is definitely not hitting any benchmarks for being a brawny looking truck . If you ask me .

My biggest issue with it, is that it is a Fiat. It does not look bad, more truck than the SC, but I think the SC is not bad either, just too much $ and SUVish for what I want. I also want MPG, so the Mav Hybrid is what I want.
