RAM Trucks – A Close Look
The origin of the RAM Truck goes back to the early 1900s when the Dodge Brothers began building automobiles. The evolution through the years has produced a line of trucks starting with today’s popular RAM 1500 designed for light duty work and hauling that includes a complete cab with heated seats and the latest in electronic innovations such as an electronic dash and the best on the market Uconnect communications system..
Out of the Box Thinking
Recently talking with a RAM Dealer the discussion as always got around to the modern RAM truck. Sales are soaring with the new 2015 RAM 1500 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine. This is not an accident; RAM has moved to the forefront with innovative thinking by designing a first with the release of the EcoDiesel 3.0L V6 engine in 2014. A first in the light truck industry, this engine not only boosted the ability of the ½ ton truck to pull a heavier load with a Best-In-Class 9,200-lb max towing capacity, it has increased the fuel efficiency to an astounding 25 MPG highway.
Heavy Duty Trucks
RAM trucks also include a line of heavy duty trucks designed for heavier workloads, trucks that will haul more and pull more that the competition. Starting with the 2015 RAM 2500 series when a truck is needed to haul and do more. With more suspension that includes a class-exclusive five-link rear coil. More engine, includes a 6.4L HEMI® V8 or the famous 6.7L Cummings®. A heavier frame built to withstand the rigors of the everyday work load demands on the truck. All designed to provide a step up in the ability to get more done.
“Heavy Duty” describes the next truck, the popular 2015 RAM 3500. Best-in-Class Diesel Towing, Best-in-Class gas-power, and a 100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty to ensure it just keeps on working long after all others have failed.
Special duty trucks include the RAM Chassis Cab for special bed designs. RAM C/V Tradesman®, a cargo van with exceptional cargo room fully enclosed, RAM ProMaster City, a smaller version of the RAM ProMaster. Both designed for delivery and hauling.
Ram trucks have been named Motor Trend magazine’s Truck of the Year five times; the second-generation Ram won the award in 1994, the third-generation Ram Heavy Duty won the award in 2003, the fourth-generation Ram Heavy Duty won in 2010 and the current Ram 1500 won in 2013 and 2014. With this outstanding record of repeated awards the RAM truck has and will continue to be the popular selection of those who want a well designed truck.
