2016 Ram 3500 Rolls off the Line

2016 Ram 3500 - RamDealerNY Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

The first 2016 Ram 3500 has rolled off the line at the Saltillo Truck assembly Plant.  In true fashion for this monster of a heavy-duty truck, it is a Mega Cab Laramie Longhorn.

The new 2016 Ram 3500 offers the best towing capacity out there.  It has more torque than any other tuck in its class.  It is a truck center around providing those that need something heavy-duty.

The word first came out about the capability of the 2016 Ram 3500 a few weeks ago in June.  The major advertising point was the massive 900 lb-ft of torque.  That is the most torque ever offered in a mass-production vehicle.  The 3500 accomplishes this with the 2016 Cummins 6.7-liter.  That makes it so the 3500 can tow up to 30,000 pounds.

For the hardcore truck fans out there that want something hardcore, you can start getting excited because the 2016 Ram 3500 is getting out there.

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 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.

Ram Sponsors Kentucky Derby for Fourth Consecutive Year

Ram-Truck-Official-Truck-Kentucky-DerbyThis weekend is the Kentucky Derby, and as people are placing their bets and predicting the winner, Ram is getting ready for its fourth consecutive year as the Derby’s official sponsor.

In a post on RamZone, Ram Trucks expressed their gratitude for the honor of sponsoring the Kentucky Derby, stating, “We hope that in time our presence at the Derby will become customary as seersucker suits and the garland of roses.”

For years, Ram’s line-up has catered to a variety of needs from light-duty truck for trailers and ATVs to heavy-duty trucks built for towing horse trailers. They understand the needs of truck drivers and more specifically of horse trainers and owners. Ram’s sponsorship of the Kentucky Derby is the perfect match between product and event, a partnership that will hopefully continue for years to come.

The Kentucky Derby will air live on NBC from 4 PM to 7 PM eastern time.

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.”
