Ram Caves Contest Builds Dream Garages for 3 Lucky Winners

Ram Caves

Last year, Ram Trucks announced that it would be sending out designers Timothy Dahl, Brett McKay, and Bob Vila to three lucky Ram owners to give them a proper “Ram Cave.” Every new garage would be built to meet the needs of each winner, whether if it means starting with a bare-bones garage or giving a great garage an extra special touch.

Yesterday, the Ram Trucks channel premiered the videos of all three winners getting their garage makeovers. Timothy Dahl went to meet Lee in Portland and show off the new Ram 1500. Bob Vila headed out to Prior Lake, Minnesota to meet with Rachel, who had won the contest for her father Dan, and show off the Ram 2500. Finally, Brett McKay took off for Maryland with the Ram 3500 to meet with Randy and his family. Randy’s wife had been diagnosed a year ago with breast cancer, and with the new Ram Cave, he will be able to continue his work on Ram Trucks and be closer to his family.

Chrysler Adopts New Universal Towing Testing Standard

2014-Ram-1500-Diesel-pickup-announced1

Here’s a tidbit about trucks that you may not be aware of, but whenever a truck company talks about towing capability, it’s not a uniformed test amongst the truck makers.  Each company has their own version of the test and that is what they are talking about in the talking points when it comes to towing in vehicles.  That means that consumer doesn’t have a real comparison point between trucks.  That is all changing however, as Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, and Nissan are looking to adopt a universal towing testing system.

Guampdn.com has the full details of what the truck makers are looking to do in the future.  They quote Bill Visni, a senior analyst with Edmunds.com as to why this will be so beneficial to buyers.  “This is good news for car shoppers.  They can compare apples to apples when they buy a new pickup.”

The majority of truck buyers are interested mostly in the towing capability.  It is the number that can really influence an owners buying opinion.  “People buy pickups to tow and haul,” said Bob Hegbloom, head of Chrysler’s Ram trucks. “These vehicles are tools. This brings a standard into place” to ensure all automakers measure their towing capacity the same way.

The Society of Automotive Engineers has already created a standardized test called J2807.  Although the companies agreed to it a few years ago it was only Toyota that used it.  The fallout from the test may explain why truck makers were so cold to using the test after initially agreeing to follow it.  By testing by J2807, the Tundra’s towing capacity dropped 400 pounds.  Moving forward, however, this will be the new standard.

It will definitely aid truck buyers in getting an honest comparison between trucks and their towing capacity.  To find out what the award-winning 2014 Ram 1500’s is, contact us at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge.  Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to see more news and monthly specials.

Ram Diesel Engines Provide Higher Fuel Effieciency

2013 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty

Diesel engines have been largely asked for in a Ram truck.  It is the main reason why the company is putting them on the market, to finally stoke the fan fervor and see if that can translate to higher sales.

There’s a good reason why so many truck drivers have been asking for a diesel engine in a Ram for so long.  One reason is the improved fuel economy.  A diesel engine is capable of having 25 percent to 30 percent better fuel economy.  However, that boost does come as a double-edged sword.  While there might be a better fuel economy, diesel gas is more expensive than normal gas.

Ram hopes to remedy this problem by focusing on a smaller engine still capable of maintaining the efficiency without adding too much extra to the cost.

Drivers wanting diesel engines want more than just fuel costs though because that diesel also translate to work load.  Towing especially can see a huge boost thanks to the new diesel engines.

So if you’re interested in a diesel truck, contact a sales rep at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge for more information!

Ram 3500 Case Edition on Display at SEMA 2013

ram3500_exterior_13

The SEMA show always has the most interesting project vehicles to see. Chrysler has brought out numerous ones for the public to see and for all the reporting on the Dodge Scat Packages and the such, one of the stranger concept vehicles to see was in the truck category, the Ram 3500 Case in Bulldozer Orange.

What is most surprising about this concept heavy-duty truck is noted by PickupTrucks.com. The branding on the Ram 3500 is ‘Case.’ Case is the name of the heavy-duty agricultural and construction arm of Fiat Industrial. With this name being referenced in the new Ram, it’s clear that they are trying to sell an image of strength and legacy that comes with a name in 30 years of construction machinery work.

Mopar has done a number on this Ram, however. For starters, the Case Ram comes with a set of roof racks for oversized equipment necessary in more heavy duty work. There’s also heavy-duty running boards and splash guards. The hood is a Power Wagon with Case graphics around it.

Ram has been wanting to pick up steam with people by showing how their trucks are meant for heavier business. It’s clear that by presenting this Case Ram 3500, they really want to stick that message home.

For more information on the Ram 3500, contact us or visit Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge online. We’ll work with you to find the right new or used car to suit your lifestyle. Make sure you like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for more news updates and monthly service specials.

Ram Heavy Duty Trucks Get New Hemi Engine

ram2500_19As the market has been showing, trucks are very important right now.  Ram is really pushing to take away the sales market from the competition.  In order to do that, they need to make sure people know they have the best trucks on the market.  The critics have been extremely receptive to the 2014 Ram 1500 so far.  The next group of trucks Ram is sprucing up is the Heavy Duty lineup.  Ram will be giving the trucks a more heavy duty engine to make them the most powerful trucks in the class.

The 2014 Heavy Duty Trucks will now have the option of a 6.4-liter Hemi V8.  The engine has only been used by SRT up until now.  Torque News has the full numbers list of what this engine is capable of.  “This new 6.4L truck Hemi packs 410 horsepower at 5,600rpm and 429lb-ft of torque at 4,000rpm…”

Those impressive numbers give the 2014 Ram HD Trucks the edge over the competition.  Neither Ford nor GM has trucks that can match that much power.

Making the engine seem even better is the fact that it has Chrysler’s fuel saver technology.  That makes the engine shut down half of its cylinders when it’s on the highway at cruising speeds.  What this does is provide better fuel economy for truck drivers.

Ram is serious about becoming the name in trucks.  They are seeing the importance of excelling in the market right now and are really appealing to those looking for power in their trucks.

2013 Ram 3500 Has the Best Towing of Any Other Truck

12_HD_photogallery_15If you have a big haul then you will be needing the truck that can handle it. The Ram Heavy Duty truck is just the vehicle for the job. In fact, none of the competition can provide the same capability in 2013 that Ram can.

To prove the point, the 2013 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty truck can deliver 30,000 pounds of trailer capacity. That’s three and a half tons greater than any other truck on the market. The closet the competition can get is 23,100 lbs maximum. That’s not all the 3500 can do. The Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of 37,600 pounds is greater than the 30,500 lbs that the competition has. There’s no doubt that the Ram 3500 Heavy Duty is the

That power comes from the upgraded 6.7 liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. It’s also thanks to the Ram 3500’s new high strength steel frame and a higher-load transmission.

“Towing capability, reliability, and engine performance are ranked first through third, respectively with HD customers,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO of Ram Truck Brand. “The 2013 Ram Heavy Duty trucks unequivocally deliver all those things, as well as a very low total cost of ownership.”
