we run a landscaping company, so i will be using the 1500 diesel for that, and also for my own personal time, just detach the trailer and go on my way!

This would be a downsize from current truck, that's now my DD. Although I would consider the 6.7 if we were to get another travel trailer or 5th wheel--which is still up for debate.

HM, I thought Americans didnt buy diesels ;) AHAHAAA I love how conventional explanations fall flat on their face. I seriously think many automakers are watching the EcoDiesel closely. If it takes off like it looks like it will watch the floodgates open to diesels in america.

I know Toyota, Chevrolet, etc will follow, it's the norm.
for all we know Toyota and Chevy might be in the process of this as we speak

Toyota and Nissan are working on diesels, however they're both commited to the 5.0 cummins 8 which isnt exactly a small fuel efficient diesel, but they will certainly satisfy the tow heavy crowd.

the cummins 5.0 is a hardcore diesel made for heavy towing. not exactly the same as the 1500 diesel.
well the 5.0 is going in a half ton just like the RAM 1500, Toyota and Nissan are playing the towing angle, while ram is playing the efficiency angle.
