Declining oil prices are said to hit Canada much harder than the United States, and one sign of that is new vehicle sales.

    My father, (being a RAM trucks fan for a long time) upon seeing the new bed boxes had the instant response of "I bet those will rattle really bad." I think the same of the lower bed containers on the Titan, though at least that's closer to the tires, so maybe you wouldn't hear it from the inside. Either way, the boxes look idiotic and gimmicky.

      @NMGOM The Ram box equipped trucks I've driven didn't rattle. When they had contents in them, I didn't notice any noise from the contents shifting, I might have if I really paid attention to them. Probably no worse than junk bouncing around in the trunk of a car when going over bumps. They compromise a bit of bed space in the areas around where the wheel wells are, but that space isn't really usable for large objects anyway. If someone wanted max bed space, they wouldn't opt for the Ram Box. For someone who uses their truck like a car, the Ram Box makes sense. My wife liked them for putting groceries in. They fit well and don't slide around, fairly convenient to load/unload.

    Well imagine that, VW has finally started on construction to build their badly needed SUV (which will probably cost a fortune and be pointless in the end). A more accessible article is at http://www.chattanoogan.com/2015/2/24/294784/Volkswagen-Chattanoogas-Plant.aspx

      More McVW... The whole purpose in my mind of purchasing a VW would have been for German Engineering but now they have lost their "German-ness" the quest for volume.

    CoreyDL, whatever lamenting agenda you have against the Ram is frankly moot. Have another coffee and tell us even more.
