2019 RAM 1500 Limited - Granite Crystal Metalic

Just got my first RAM ever. Been a Ford F-150 guy for most of my life and just tried the Tacoma TRD Pro for a couple months. Loved the look but hated the ride with the loud droning exhaust and the stupid transmission that would always want to be in 4th gear on the highway in cruise. Has 6 gears but you wouldn't know that since it always wanted to be in 4th.

Now this truck, is night and day from the Tacoma and is head and shoulders above the the F-150. Love the fit and finish. It's a lot like my old 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. So far no complaints except I wish they would provide you with more screen for the backup cameras. Instead of using 1/8th of the screen for the surround and small backup view and the bottom half the controls screen. They should change the surround to be top half, the backup the bottom half and have a small row of camera buttons along the bottom to change the views. I don't need to change my seat heating and cooling while I'm backing up.

I also wish that they would enact the surround camera when you are pulling in and the front sensors go off. That way you can tell how you are doing. My BMW X5 does that and it's a nice feature for pulling into parking spots. Easy fixes and updates to software, so hopefully they will resolve soon.

Congrats on the your new 1500, love the pic. You aren't the first person I've heard complain about the ride in the Tacoma and its unrefined powertrain. Those are some great suggestions of ways they can make quality of life improvements.

Welcome to the forum and to the brand. With what Ram has delivered for the 2019MY, I'll bet that you wont be the last to come from a rival brand.

Some folks I know find it hard to part with Chevy since they offer a bigger displacement V8 over the Hemi we get. I can see why but displacement only does so much these days with the rise of powerful (and torque friendly) lower displacement engines.
