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.

Truck Sales on the Rise as Ram Introduces the Ram 1500 Rebel

2015 Ram 1500 Rebel

Good news for the truck world; sales have been on the up and up.  They are up 21.9 percent since just 2013 and that growth looks to be continuing in comparison to all the other vehicles in the US.  It is clear to see that many of the major US auto makers will be concentrating a great deal of effort in this market, and that is something that Fiat-Chrysler has made clear.  Over the past year their dedication to being one of the premier truck makers in the US has been made clear.  This year should be a major leap forward for the brand.

The Ram truck method of staying competitive with other trucks such as the Ford F-150 Raptor is the new Ram 1500 Rebel.  The new truck is more of a sports model with a meaner exterior design including a blacked out grille that has the brand name on it.  The Rebel comes with the choice of a V6 or a Hemi V8 engine to give the driver the power and capability that a truck owner needs.  The V8 even comes with an eight-speed auto transmission for better fuel consumption.

The Ram 1500 Rebel is a looker that doesn’t hold back on what it can do.  That imposing all black grille gives it a unique look among the rest of the trucks and really sells the idea of a powerful truck.  The question now is the Rebel going to be enough to help the Ram truck brand to pull up some during this next year against the more cemented brands.  Only time will tell, but if the past few years of Ram’s commitment to quality is any indication, the other trucks better look out.

Ram Teases New Surprise

2013-ram-2500-3500-hd-pickup-photos-and-info-news-car-and-driver-photo-474781-s-429x262

Ram has a mystery reveal coming up.  It seems that the truck maker has a surprise in store for fans.  Ram seems to be planned for a tad bit of a shake-up thanks to the five-year plan.  Just what could be shown off?

Ram has sent out word to a livestream event they have schedule on June 26th at 11am EDT. According to the very brief and vague description, Ram has a new product announcement they want the world to see. No clue exactly what kind of truck they are planning to show, however.

According to the plan that Fiat Chrysler laid out Ram will be giving the Ram 1500 a mid-cycle refresh for the 2015 model year. There’s a chance this might be the reveal of a new Ram 1500 to ride off the success the company had with the 2014 Ram 1500. It might also be Ram showing off newer heavy-duty trucks as part of their way to up their competition in the heavy-duty market. It may even be both.

Until this upcoming Thursday, June 26th, it is just going to be wild speculation. We can’t wait to see what Ram has in store.

For more information on the Ram 1500 and other Ram heavy-duty trucks, contact us at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge. Be sure to check out our new and used inventory online on our website. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for more news and monthly offers.

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.

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.

New Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Arriving at Dealerships Soon

2014 Ram 1500 EcoDieselThe Ram 1500, Chrysler’s big seller of February, has an EcoDiesel version of the popular model coming to dealerships any day now.

When Ram Trucks started taking orders back in February, the first allocation of the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel sold out in only a few days. Considering that the Ram 1500 is the first half-ton pickup in the United States to have a diesel option, perhaps Ram Trucks shouldn’t have been surprised at the high demand, but Ram Trucks CEO Reid Bigland was modest in his response, saying, “It’s every truck manufacturer’s dream to have this kind of initial order demand for a product.”

Drivers looking for more power in their truck will not be disappointed. The truck’s 3.0-liter V6 engine from VM Motori, an Italian engine manufacturer, is a perfect pairing of power and new technology, and manufacturing of the truck itself happens in the United States at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesels will be capable of towing up to 9,200 pounds, and its fuel economy is measured at 28 mpg highway.

For those who missed the chance to order their Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, there is no need to worry. Ram Trucks will be opening orders again in March.

Ram Publicizes “Truck of the Year” Award with Ram 1500 Building Wrap

Ram 1500 WrapHow does Ram celebrate winning Motor Trend’s “Truck of the Year” for two consecutive years? They wrap the Chrysler Group headquarters in a 155-feet-tall picture of the Ram 1500.

In December, Motor Trend announced that the 2014 Ram 1500 had been named “Truck of the Year,” a great honor considering that the 2013 Ram 1500 had won “Truck of the Year” the year before. The Ram Truck brand wanted to celebrate the Ram 1500 and everyone at Ram behind this award-winning truck, and the only way to properly celebrate such an exciting award was to go big with a building wrap on the Chrysler Group LLC headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

The Ram 1500 image on the building wrap is so enormous that it takes up four floors of the building. The windshield alone is 18 feet wide by 4 feet high, and the truck grille is 40 feet wide by 15 feet tall. It took four days to install the wrap on the building, but considering all the drivers seeing it from Interstate 75, the effort was well worth it.

Ram 1500 Named Automobile Magazine 2013 All-Star

2013-All-Stars-Best-Cars-in-AmericaAutomobile Magazine just announced their All-Stars for 2013, and among their top-honored vehicles was the Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn.

11 vehicles were named 2013 All-Stars and given distinctions like “Hometown Hero” or “Compact for America.” The Ram 1500 and the Audi A7 were designated as the “Houston Rockets.” Jason Harper, who wrote the section of the piece on the Ram 1500, had lots of praise for the truck, calling it “the ultimate in cowboy cool” and “king of the ranch.”

As they put both vehicles through their paces, the Ram 1500 easily beat out the Audi 7 for earning its keep. This is the type of vehicle that can haul more hay, bring back a runaway cow, and take out skeet shooting. Aside from its practicality, though, Harper was also surprised at the attention given to the interior, praising the stitching as “European quality” and noting the lack of “tawdry veneer” in the design.
