No idea on price, and no base model sadly. I suspect serious bucks.
They had me at 1,152 Nm (not a typo)

Yes Chatty, I know. The new thing is they are available here for the first time. RAM Australia have only offered petrol up to this point.Ram have been running the Cummins engine for a long, long time now, so nothing new there.
I'm sure you're right.As for torque - my Sierra in stock trim delivers 1,234NM of torque (about 10%more than the Ram).
Power wise, 332kW for the Sierra compared to 275kW for the Ram.
I didn't say it was. I said the Cummins was now available in Oz from RAM.Tell me again why you reckon the Ram is so good?
I'm sure you're right there also.Plus, my Sierra was cheaper than the Ram for the same trim level and the winner for me was that Walkinshaw (American Special Vehicles/Ram Australia) was not involved in the conversion, so I know my vehicle is much better quality and has a lot fewer problems.
I drove both - the Ram looks, sounds and feels shoddy compared to the Sierra.
Ram Australia have been selling the Cummins diesel engine in the 2500 in Australia for at least 4 years now, possibly longer.Yes Chatty, I know. The new thing is they are available here for the first time. RAM Australia have only offered petrol up to this point.
I'm sure you're right.

The 1500 has only been offered with the petrol engine.
I think you could apply that statement to any vehicle manufacturer. Actually I think it applys to all marketing - periodYou need to take all RAM Australia marketing material with a very large grain of salt - they are well known for peddling their own, unique, version of the facts.
It was their loose approach to the truth, their lack of support for buyers and their inferior product that had me buying a Sierra.
Are you thinking seriously about a US ute joe?
Wouldn’t a Travel Truck be a better option?
Apart from being a fantastic tow rig they don’t offer much more
The Sierra is a much better buy than the Ram - better engine and gearbox and you don't have to suffer the terrible build quality and problems of the Ram Australia (American Special Vehicles/Walkinshaw) conversion. Plus Ram Australia's customer service is terrible.Probably, OKA are back in business and I'm watching them closely as well. The wife said she could MAYBE handle a RAM all the others stuff she hates. She has heavy lic so size isn't the issue but looks definitely are..
The end of the day what ever it is in today's climate everything is over priced. Plus spending so much coin and not beings able to really get to use it would sux
Yehhhh I'm hearing ya. I have owned 3 truck from the the Daimler family.The Sierra is a much better buy than the Ram - better engine and gearbox and you don't have to suffer the terrible build quality and problems of the Ram Australia (American Special Vehicles/Walkinshaw) conversion.

Be careful of what you see on YouTube - the Americans have a lot more flexibility in changes they can make to a vehicle than would ever be allowed in Australia. That means that a lot of what you see done to these vehicles in America won't be able to be done here, so you really need to compare the trucks in their standard configuration to get a better picture of how they stack up in Australia.Yehhhh I'm hearing ya. I have owned 3 truck from the the Daimler family.
Buying from whats printed on paper and what watch YOUTUBE I get the feeling that RAM or a F truck have better off rd mods and credit then a Sierra.??
I haven't researched in full (as I'm only still in the stage of considering) so I know my thoughts would have some faults.
I do like the interior of the RAM of all the others by far.
