Ram Breaks Record with 2015 Ram Truck Parade

Ram Parada Breaks Record - Ram Dealer NY - Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

Ram announced that they wanted to break some records to coincide with the Academy of Country Music.  That record being the largest parade of Ram trucks.  They put out the call and needed 451 truck drivers to show up.  And show up they did, helping Ram to break the record.

“Our hard-working Ram truck owners are passionate and loyal, and today they proved once again that everything is always bigger in Texas,” said Roberto Hegbloom, The President and CEO of Ram Truck Brand.

The drivers who signed up to participate in the event weren’t there just to break records.  As a thank-you for those who helped the truck company break the record, they were given numerous treats.  They were fed and given the chance to see the Raminator monster truck as well as the driver.  Also included in the ticket price for the parade was an invite to the ACM Party for a Cause Festival where they could enjoy live music.

“Ram is the fastest growing truck brand in Texas, where trucks are king, and it was great to see 451 Ram owners travel far and wide for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be part of a special recording-breaking rally and pickup parade.”

Wonder how many trucks Ram will want to have next year to break the record.  A part of me hopes they simply raise it by one truck every year.

Ram 3500 Wins Gold Hitch Award

Ram 3500 Wins Golden Hitch Award - RamDealerNY

The 2015 Ram 3500 was awarded the Gold Hitch Award in the heavy duty diesel segment by The Fast Lane Truck.

Compared to others in the heavy duty class, the 3500 beat them all in various points such as pulling power, braking, and handling under extreme towing conditions.

The process of scoring has the TFLtruck editors taking the nominees up to the Eisenhower Pass, otherwise known as “Ike Gauntlet” in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.  This place is well known for testing out trucks due to the extreme climb that can reach elevations of 11,000 feet with an ever increasing grade until the peak.  Out of all the trucks put through this test, it was the 3500 that excelled the most.

“The 2015 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty was loaded with a 21,600-pound trailer for Gross Combined Weight of nearly 31,000 pounds,” said Andre Smirnov, Technical Editor at Fast Lane Truck.  “The Ram dually came out on top based on its confident downhill performance, consistent uphill climb, and leading observed fuel mileage among the competitors.”

The climb up the Ike Gauntlet is not the final criteria that wins a truck the award.  The winner must pass that challenge as well as win in all the other criteria.  Doesn’t matter what is stacked against it, it appears that the Ram 3500 is the heavy-duty truck.

Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Wins Rocky Mountain Truck of the Year Award!

2013 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty

The Denver Auto Show started off with quite the announcement.  The Rocky Mountain Automotive Press named their ‘Truck of the Year’ and it went to the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

This is the ninth year for the Rocky Mountain Vehicle of the Year awards.  They produce the awards to honor vehicles that are either all-new or have gotten a significant revision in the 2015 model year.  The voters are made up of the regional press and members that are in the area and able to test drive.  The RMAP contains journalists from all around, stretching from Colorado to New Mexico.

The members put together their list of nominees and then grade each on criteria including performance, value, fuel economy, and features.  The list is then narrowed down further until only three remain.  For the 2015 year, the finalist were the Chevy Silverado HD, the GMC Canyon, and the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.  To kill the suspense of who won for those that skipped the opening paragraph, it was the EcoDiesel Ram.

The EcoDiesel 1500 has been extraordinarily popular since Ram released it.  It blows away the competition in the all the previously marked categories and continues to gain the accolades and popularity.
