Clash of the Titans: 2017 Ram 3500 v. 2017 Ford F-350

Ford F-350 and Ram 3500, which is better?

When the 2017 Ram 3500 and 2017 Ford F-350 go head-to-head its a true clash of the titans. Both brands have a legacy of producing trucks that are built for work and that can perform heavy-duty jobs. In the cut-throat truck market, the difference of 10 horsepower, $10 or 10 pounds in towing capacity is a big deal. So, which is the bigger titan?

Durability + Design

Design is one of the most important aspects of a truck and it can’t be shrugged off as simply aesthetic. Without a good and durable design, towing capacities and longevity will suffer, especially when it comes to heavy-duty trucks like the Ram 3500 and F-350.

Ram truck suspension

New Ram trucks have some pretty cool features to improve efficiency and driveability. Some features, like active grille shutters, are automatically controlled by the truck and other features, like the Active-Level four corner air suspension and electronic trailer brake controller, can be controlled by the driver.

But don’t worry, just because those features are controlled by the driver doesn’t mean they are hard to use. Nope, select new Ram trucks have convenient buttons on the dash that drivers can use to adjust the truck’s suspension and control the brakes on a trailer that is being towed. [click to continue…]

Miami Lakes Automall and FCA Dealers Shining Bright

 Miami Lakes FCA Bright Night Lighting

Miami Lakes Automall and other FCA dealerships will be shining bright like a diamond with new lighting in the showrooms, service bays and parking lots. Announced in the beginning of January, FCA has a new initiative to replace dealership lights with brighter and more energy and cost efficient LED lighting.

FCA has already replaced lights at 40 dealerships across the nation and when complete, more than 2,600 dealerships in the U.S. will have new lights. The lighting at the new Miami Lakes Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram building is not the same LED lighting that FCA is using in other dealerships. We made a choice to install brighter lights that are more efficient than the LED lighting.

For an Adventurous 2017, Get the New Ram Power Wagon

new ram power wagon miami lakes

We hope everyone’s 2017 is filled with happiness, success and adventure! And, what is better than some camping gear and a capable off-roading truck to get you to the most remote destinations? Not much, and that’s why if adventure is on your list, you should check out the 2017 Ram Power.  

The Ram Power Wagon is equipped with Ram’s all-powerful 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine, which produces up to 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque.The engine’s heavy-duty engine results in a lot of power for towing up to 10,300 pounds and is excellent for off-roading.

Other features that help to make the Power Wagon an adventuring beast are the electronically lockable front and rear axles and hill descent control. The truck’s 17-inch forged aluminum wheels and 33-inch all-terrain tires take a lot more than mud to get stuck, but just in case another truck needs to get pulled out, there is an electronically controlled 12,000 pound winch in the front.

ram-2500-macho-power-wagon-miami-lakes-automall

To recap the year, New Atlas published a review of the year’s best off-roading trucks titled, “Rock crawlers: the best trucks of 2016.”  To no surprise, two Ram trucks that made the cut — the Ram Macho Power Wagon and Ram Rebel TRX concept.

Both of these trucks were built on the current Ram platforms including the Rebel and Power Wagon. They take both of these already great looking and powerful Ram trucks and transform them into unbeatable off-road machines. Check ‘em out.

Ram Rebel TRX Concept

If you like Ram trucks, chances are you’ve heard of the Ram Rebel TRX concept. Basically, it is a more intense version of the Rebel (which is already pretty B.A. if we don’t say so ourselves). This truck could not only compete with the Ford Raptor, but probably beat it. Just like the Raptor, the Rebel TRX concept is powerful, capable, and ready to go anywhere. [click to continue…]

Miami Lakes Ram towing capacity

If you are new to the truck world because you just got an RV or a boat that will need to be towed, truck shopping can be a little confusing. What affects towing capacity? How is it that two trucks with the same engine have different towing capacities? Why does a smaller engine have a bigger towing capacity? We’ll try to help you understand some of the key factors that affect towing capacity on the Ram 1500 lineup.

Engine

The biggest factor out of many factors in a truck’s towing capacity is the engine. Generally speaking, a bigger engine can tow more, but that also depends on the type of fuel the engine uses, such as diesel or gas.

Ram 1500

Consumers Digest presented Ram with the title of “Best Buy of 2017” in the pickup truck segment. The Ram 1500 deserves this award for many reasons. Starting with the fact that the Ram 1500 HFE EcoDiesel produces up to 29 mpg, which is the best-in-class fuel economy by far. Not to mention, the Ram 1500 offers a vast amount of trim options, from the work horse Ram 1500 Tradesman, to the fuel efficient Ram 1500 HFE, to the off-road demon, the Ram 1500 Rebel. There is a truck for everyone, and every purpose.

The Ram 1500 doesn’t just lead its class in fuel economy, but also in several other categories. Ram 1500 trucks are America’s longest lasting trucks according to FCA and that’s impressive. Also, the Ram 1500 leads the class in categories including handling, storage, and performance.
