Given the current sales climate, it was probably about time somebody sat down with an automaker and asked them what the heck their plan was for trucks. Automobile's Phil Floraday interrogated the Chrysler folks about where the Dodge brand is going now that we're in the middle of the gaspocalypse. They spouted off something about making the Dodge Ram HD a bit more fuel efficient, and even reducing horsepower a bit. Then they wandered into smaller trucks.

Then they went on about how a a unibody design for the next Dakota is on the table. And they even went so far as to talk about a sub-Dakota pickup, sort of like the Dodge M80 Concept and then... the... some... firework hot dogs....{zzzzzzzzzz}

Editor's Note: Shhh! Be quiet! Ben apparently fell asleep from boredom while writing this post. Better head over to read Phil's piece at Automobile on your own. []
