Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel is voted “Best Off-road Vehicle” by RMAP

mp016_009rm7r101eul1qajr6d8097395cmc__mid

The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel was named the “Best Off-road Vehicle” by the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press at the 10th Annual Mountain Driving Experience.

Every year, more than 30 journalists head to the Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, Colorado to spend two days driving and grading various trucks on their capabilities. At the end of this, the journalist then compare notes and votes to showcase which vehicles they believed shone more brightly than the rest.  In this year, the 10th Annual Rocky Mountain Driving Experience, the Mopar 2016 Ram Rebel was the shining star of the truck category.

“For the second consecutive year, RMAP journalists have selected the Ram Rebel because of its combination of off-road capability, power and comfort,” said David Muramoto, President of RMAP in a statement.  “That’s what made it a winner.”

The 2016 Ram Rebel is based on the Ram 1500 4×4 Rebel Crew Cab and is the first time Mopar has modified a vehicle in the truck segment.  It features numerous upgrades, including a skid plate to guard the power steering box and 17-inch satin black wheels.  It’s an eye-catching truck that does not skimp out on capability, as the journalist who could spend time with it found out.  It’s the best of both worlds; visually appealing and keeps the power of a truck.

How Does The 2016 Ram 1500 Compare to the Competition?

ram1500-exterior-front-end-bumper

How does the 2016 Ram 1500 stack up against the competition?  That’s a question that Slashgear wanted answered.  They compared the popular up-and-coming Ram truck to its 3 closest competitors to see where it was better and where it could use improvement.

The Ford F-150 has been the king of the truck segment for a long time now, but the Ram 1500 is starting to make gains as Ram continues to make quality trucks as well as push the knowledge of their capability out into the truck buying world.  A few years ago, no one would’ve thought that Ram would mount the kind of resurgence it has had.  So how does it compare to the competition?

First up is the previously state king; the Ford F-150.  This is the one to be better than to hope to claim the segment.  What the F-150 does better is that it has better towing.  It also offers more gas engine options and has a cheaper base model.  On the flip side, the 1500 has the EcoDiesel engine option, which rivals Ford’s EcoBoost engine in terms of fuel economy.  Ram also features the Uconnect system that is better than the Ford’s SYNC touchscreen system.  The final thing that the 1500 has that the F-150 does not is an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Next up is the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado.  The place where the Silverado offers competition to the 1500 is again in engine options.  It has more V8 engines.  That being said, the 1500 beats it in terms of value.  Six-speed automatic transmission is in the base 1500 with the eight-speed available as an option and standard on most of the models.  You don’t get that without paying a lot more on the Silverado.

Lastly is the 2016 GMC Sierra.  The Sierra is comparable to the 1500 in many of the same ways that the Silverado is.  The Sierra has more power in the engine options and driver safety features such as Driver Alert Seats.  The 1500 wins again with its transmission offerings.  The 1500 also has a better, and more comfortable, interior than the Sierra.

Is the Ram Dakota Making a Come Back?

2006-Dodge-Dakota-Truck-Image-003

Mike Manley, the head of Ram Trucks, had an interview with USA Today where he dropped a bit of a bombshell for truck lovers.  Here is the line that has many talking.

“You have the opportunity with a new frame for the next-generation Ram.  You have the opportunity to take a large SUV off of it because we already have a very, very capable frame today that is going to be upgraded.”

Auto Evolution latched onto this portion of the interview as a marker of what is to come from the future of Ram.  The future of the FCA has been an interesting one of late.  There have been some major course corrections due to the recent sales trends of Jeep and Ram.  FCA is putting a bigger focus on their SUV and crossover lines due to the uptick Jeep and Ram have been enjoying.

So is this a sign of what to expect from the 2018 Ram 1500?  The 1500 is due for an update according to the 5-year plan that FCA put out, even though much has changed recently so the plan isn’t being kept to exactly.

In other news from the interview, Manley also brought up bringing back the Dakota.  I could see Ram doing that.  For many of the brands, bringing back older and popular vehicles has gone over well enough.  The Chrysler Pacifica is popular so far and Jeep is bringing back the Wagoneer.  The Dakota could be the nostalgic strength for a new Ram Truck that capitalizes on the Ram sales.

New 2016 Ram 1500 Special Edition Announced: The Yellow Rose of Texas Special Edition

2016 Ram 1500 Yellow Rose of Texas

Ram has been the ‘Truck of Texas’ for a while now.  It makes sense that when it comes time to put together a custom truck, that the great state of Texas would be getting its own special edition.

Ram is introducing the Yellow Rose of Texas edition of the 2016 Ram 1500.  It has a Stinger Yellow paint color, not to confuse anyone by NOT having yellow paint to go with its name.  This special edition will be offered on the half-ton 4×2 and 4×4 crew cab versions of the Ram 1500 Lone Star.

The name Yellow Rose of Texas comes from a mid-19th century American folk song.  It was later covered by artist Mitch Miller and was a Billboard Number One hit in 1955.

“Texas is truck country – Ram Truck country – and we’re committed to building products that resonate with our customers,” said Mike Manley, the head of Ram Brand.  “The importance of the Texas truck market cannot be overstated.  That’s why the Ram Truck brand has worked year after year to deliver hard-working trucks that serve the communities across the Lone Star state.”

Texas and Ram trucks have a long history together.  It’s hard not to see Texas as a primary region for trucks.  This is also not the first time that Ram has put together a special edition truck in honor of Texas.  In 2014, they collaborated with the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum with a Ram Texas Ranger concept car.  They’ve also provided much needed aid to residents hit by floods in 2015.

Ram Trucks Donates to the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum

Ram Texas Ranger - RamDealerNY

Ram trucks have always been supporters of the Texas Rangers.  They’ve put out models of the 1500 that has honored the Rangers.  They plan to continue their support by donating $100,000 to the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum.

This donation is happening almost a year since they last partnered with the Texas Rangers and also donated $100,000 to help the legendary law enforcers.

“Texas Rangers epitomize all of the great qualities of the Lone Star State,” said Beck Blanchard, Director of Ram Truck Brand.  “Ram has deep ties to Texas.  Reinforcing Ram’s commitment to the Texas Ranger Division and the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum is a significant way to be engaged with the people and communities in which we do business.”

The money being donated will go to help make improvements at the museum.  A portion of the donation will also goto the Texas Ranger Association Foundation’s scholarship program.
