SURE wish these new DT trucks had 3 way HCV instead of the redesign with Blend door BS. AC work a lot better if not being sloshed with 200 degree coolant the whole time AC is on, wat a sorry a**** re-design. No Eco Boast for dis Boird. I did look at a 2022 Tundra, 1794, fully loaded. BLING out the ying yang. But it has the new V6 twin turbo (also hybrid options), and the prices start at 67K MSRP, plus, and Toyota for some odd reason had a bad run of Turbo's and all the right side turbo's doing the self-implosion method, some at 300 miles. SO not fer dis BOIRD. But I do enjoy my old true and proven 5.7 and no E torque, LOL. Helps to be paid off too.Agree with the other posts, all makes have their issues. My 2018 CC V6 with 3:21 4X4 has been pretty much trouble free. Cruise control switch, 3 way coolant valve, driver side mirror and delaminated 8.4 radio have been replaced under warranty. In my experience that’s about average for a vehicle. It’s a comfortable truck and I find the build quality and materials used to be above average. For my use it fits my needs. Maintenance in my humble opinion is key for anything mechanical. As a DYI’er I do almost all my own maintenance and that saves a small fortune. The only truly horrible vehicle I’ve ever owned is a 2015 Ford Escape with the 2L echoboost. One look under that thing will make you cringe. Leaks from everywhere with a constant coating of oil, grease, blow by over the entire undercarriage. At this point in time it’s cheaper to keep it versus the cost of something new. Rams are pretty popular these days and with so many on the road I’m sure there are a few lemons. You don’t really hear about the ones without problems.
