Ram Commercial Truck Series Wins Fans at Truck Show

truck2 One of the best selling segments in trucks, at the moment, is the commercial segment. Ram Commercial has been working hard to produce a series of vehicles aimed to draw in new consumers. That means more though than just coming up with the best trucks but also getting word out about the quality of the product. For that reason, Ram Commercial paid a visit to the National Truck Equipment Association Truck Show to give people a glimpse of their best trucks.

Ram provided numerous ways of engaging with drivers and encouraging them to test out their heavy duty truck line. One example of this was a scavenger hunt with the Ram ProMaster. It was one part game, another part being able to discover the features of the commercial van.

Also on display was the award winning Ram 1500. The new Ram truck is always winning massive praise from truck lovers and critics alike. Just recently the 1500 was named the ‘Truck of Texas’ along with numerous truck of the year awards. With the power and comfort the 1500 can provide, it is not very surprising to see why people are in love with the truck.

Ram 1500 EcoDiesel’s Fuel Economy Makes it Perfect for Road-Trips

2014-ram-1500_100435147_l

The auto industry tends to be defined by the economy surrounding it. When the economy was booming, many people were wanting the big gas guzzling SUVs. Now that the country is still recovering from recession, buyers want vehicles that burn through as little gas as possible. Fuel economy is a big selling point on major new cars. Even trucks are not exempt from this new attitude. That is why Ram is making a huge deal out of what can be achieved through just one tank of gas in the new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

The road trip that Ram put together for their drivers is to the Grand Canyon. Makes sense, someone traveling with the Ram 1500 is looking to get off the usual places. The mountain environment is perfect for the off-roader in all of us and is a testament to the capability of the EcoDiesel engine.

According to an infographic on the article, Ram is stating that the Ram 1500 Ecodiesel can travel about 650 miles or from Denver, Colorado to Grand Canyon National Park on a single full tank. That’s pretty incredible. Ram is trying to get the point across that the EcoDiesel is providing truck drivers with amazing fuel economy and this really does show it.

Ram even went the extra mile and provided a highlighted number of routes to take on this trip and talked about what to do at both destinations. Take a look for yourself.

AUTOMOBILE Magazine Names Ram 1500 “2014 All-Star”

2014 Ram 1500AUTOMOBILE Magazine has named its 2014 All-Stars, and for the second year in a row, the Ram 1500 has made the prestigious list.

Every year, the magazine chooses 10 vehicle All-Stars, and the list includes a wide range of passenger cars, SUVs, sports cars, trucks, and minivans. AUTOMOBILE Magazine chose the Ram 1500 because it “defies the limitations of a pickup truck, continuing a spirit of innovation that began in the mid-1990s.”

“The list of options and the refine interior rival those of a luxury car,” wrote the AUTOMOBILE Magazine staff. “And a new diesel engine – the only one available on a light-duty pickup – achieves the fuel economy of a mid-size crossover.” The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has a best-in-class fuel efficiency of 28 mpg.

Michael Jordan, West Coast Editor for AUTOMOBILE Magazine, had more praise for the 2014 Ram 1500, stating, “Chrysler doesn’t get the credit it deserves for what it’s done in the truck segment. First, it reinvented the way trucks look with its big-rig grille. Then it was the first to offer a cabin that held more people and more stuff. Later they did a chassis that would both steer and stop, and now they’ve delivered a great ride with air springs.”

The full list of AUTOMOBILE Magazine’s All-Stars is available here.
