Auto123 test drives the 2021 1500 TRX, newest and craziest version of the Ram pickup truck.
Prince Edward County, ON - These are incredible times and I'm not referring to the pandemic here. Rather, I’m thinking of this unique moment in automotive history where different driving types of powertrains, different philosophies, and certainly opposing visions of the future overlap.
The domain experienced something similar a little over 100 years ago, at a time when the combustion engine was imposing itself in the face of steam and electric engines; I'm thinking of the Stanley Steamer and the models made by the Detroit Electric company, among others.
What else happened in the midst of that upheaval? The 1918-1919 Spanish Flu pandemic. I’m not sure what the significance of that is, if there is one, but history sure has this strange tendency to repeat itself.
