    If it were just dirt bikes you would be better served by something like the new Colorado. I know that the bikes won't fit in the bed with the tailgate up, but a flip down gate extension easily solves that and the shorter overall length of the mid-sized Colorado would be much more livable in urban driving while the crew cab still allows for family use.

    If your track toy is a larger car then the Ram is the way to go in my opinion, but if it's something like a Miata and (1) you only hit the track a few times a years and (2) no towing over mountains is required (like most of us Midwest residents) the Colorado still makes the most sense.
  • The new Colorado diesel sure is interesting. I am a recent Toyota Tacoma driver but seeing this RAM diesel I second guessed my purchase, until I remember how much difficulty it is for me to park my Tacoma (coming from a Mazda3), the RAM is just so much bigger. I am still hoping Toyota will have a diesel Tacoma in the next few years..
