On late winter nights during the magazine’s busy time, I prefer my commutes to be mindless and pampered. I wasn’t overly thrilled then, to be driving a diesel Ram out of the parking garage at 1 in the morning. But to my pleasant surprise, the heavy-duty is nearly as pleasant and easy to drive as our four-seasons Ram 1500, which is itself as luxurious smooth as some premium sedans. We’re talking heated leather seats and a very good navigation system in a truck that could tow nearly 13,000 pounds. Like Rusty, I’ve become accustomed to small, quiet diesels, but the Cummins is pretty subdued considering its capability.
