It's a VERY interesting proposal. It's Ford's version of the Honda Ridgeline, it's a car chassis with some tweaks. It's going to be mainly FWD from Ford's estimates with AWD optional (2k vs 4k towing so that's a driver for AWD) and is targeting those who may have purchased a compact car/sedan.

For me the biggest thing is they have learned from the Ranger/Tacoma/Colorado and the 6' high bedsides. It will be lower and much more accessible from the outside and better visibility than the new "compact" truck bedsides. It's interesting and see a huge market for it with fleet for private and government purchase. Whether it will sell to the regular car buyer is debatable but 32k worth of Honda Ridgelines isn't to be ignored with a Ford badge.

Ram does need to reply with a smaller truck. Ford now has 2 smaller and GM one, with Hyundai bringing a cruck to market too.

Ram was developing a body-on-frame Dakota, but it was cancelled. Instead, a new Ram project is underway with the unibody chassis of the Toro.

Is it certain that this model won't be super high like the Ranger? I always thought it was odd to offer a smaller truck that was so tall!

It really is surprising Ram haven't followed the trend (thus far) with the smaller truck. It would sell in the US for sure.

ZERO chance of it making it's way to production from Allpar and others as a Ram. And supposedly a non-starter for US, possibly SE Asia or maybe Europe

From the dimensions given to the auto writers and visibilty lines, no it will be MUCH lower. A FX4 Ranger bed is higher than my truck, I've parked next to a few and wondered how they get so little truck in so much space.

Especially given the Gladiator was developed from a plan for a new Dakota first. Supposedly, if you believe Allpar, who is generally considered to be in the know even if less than in the past, the Gladiator project was likely to spin off a Ram until someone got the idea it would cut Ram sales and their climb to outsell the GM twins so that was stopped. And Jeep got their hairs in a twist about sharing but frankly eff them and their egos. It's not a Jeep when the mirrors are mounted on the door and the windshield doesn't even pretend to fold anymore so shut your faces. Oh, and a stock Macan or Cayenne destroyed your beloved Rubicon's time on multiple Jeep trails, with a Porsche exec at the wheel for the Cayenne.

First one to take the plunge, Toyota unveils their Tundra with only TTV6 engine option, hybrid and non.

https://jalopnik.com/the-2022-toyota...t-w-1847709384

They want to build the fun truck not the work truck. Although I can't say I've ever seen a Tundra work truck, some for work but usually the clean guy in the jacket. They move to the Ram style multi-link with coil or airbags at the rear. And no single cab long box truck any longer, in fact no single cabs to be made at all for them, under 1% of their sales so they had to go
