2016 RAM 1500 - Miami, FL

The 2016 RAM 1500 is making a huge splash at Miami Lakes Automall. It's one of our most popular vehicles thanks to the incredible offerings and value-based pricing from RAM.

Buying a pickup truck isn't the same as buying a car. You want something that can handle anything and everything, gets great gas mileage, looks great, and has a comfortable interior. The new RAM 1500 offers that and everything more. 

You may already know that the RAM 1500 is the truck for you, but if you're still on the fence we hope you'll keep an open mind and choose to do business with Miami Lakes Automall!

Why You Should Choose RAM

With its biggest competitors winning the sales race, you might ask yourself why you'd even choose RAM over the competition. But that's the very reason you should choose RAM. 

It's not the top-selling pickup truck brand in America, so it has to fight for every sale. But the reason RAM has seen so much growth over the past two years is because the company is taking risks, innovating, and giving truck buyers exactly they want and more. 

New models, such as the EcoDiesel and Laramie Limited, have provided truck buyers with the option to choose an extremely fuel efficient truck or a top-of-the-line luxury model that stands out. This allows buyers to have even more options, in addition to the multiple trim levels available for the 2016 RAM 1500 in Miami. 

One of the biggest concerns buyers have about full-size trucks is the price. They tend to have a low entry price, but as you go up the chain of trims they get more and more expensive. This makes it difficult for buyers to get exactly what they want because they're squeezed out on price.

RAM has recognized this problem, which is why its models are the most affordable compared to Ford and Chevy. The new 2016 RAM 1500 stars at just $26,145, while Ford's F-150 starts at $26,615 and the Chevy Silverado 1500 starts at $27,285. In the grand scheme of things, those prices might not appear to make a difference; however, once you add in extras and move up to a higher trim level you can save thousands with a RAM 1500.

The new RAM 1500 is also known for its quality and value, and the awards it has received proves that. U.S. News gave it the award for Best Full-Size Pickup for the Money during the 2015 model year. It also received the Truck of the Year award from the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press group. 

Overall, the 2016 RAM 1500 is the only truck that's going above and beyond to innovate and give buyers exactly what they want for the best possible price.

EcoDiesel: The Most Fuel Efficient Truck Available

 

The problem with pickup trucks is that they've been made to do their job and do it well. Until recently, however, that meant sacrificing fuel economy to achieve the most power and overall capabilities. 

But with volatile gas prices, that makes owning a pickup truck even more expensive. That's when RAM decided to do things differently and give truck owners the best of both world's: a power and capable truck that's also extremely efficient.

This is how the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel was created. Even with four-wheel drive, this model is able to achieve 19 city and 27 highway thanks to its 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine. That not only makes it more efficient than every other full-size truck on the market, but it outperforms mid-size pickups like the Toyota Tacoma and Chevy Colorado as well.

The EcoDiesel's engine may not sound like a powerful engine compared to the V8 HEMI that's available in other 2016 RAM 1500 models, but it surprises a lot of owners.  The V6 engine puts out 240 horsepower and generates 420 lb-ft. of torque, which translates to superior acceleration and towing. Speaking of that, it's able to tow up to 9,310 pounds and includes a payload capacity of 1600 pounds.

It's not just RAM owners and enthusiasts who recognize the EcoDiesel's strengths, though. It recently won an award from Ward's Auto for Best Engine of 2016, a huge honor for automotive engineering. The reason it's such an honor is Ward's takes a close look at engines for issues that those unfamiliar with engines would have no way of catching.

This allows Ward's to look for vehicle engines with the highest build quality and let people know why they're better than the rest. The fact that the new RAM 1500 EcoDiesel's engine made the list is a testament to RAM's dedication to diesel and the future of pickup truck efficiency.

Let's get down to business, though. If you're shopping for a fuel efficient truck, you've probably also been looking at the new all-aluminum Ford F-150. Unlike the EcoDiesel, the F-150 relies on a turbocharger to create its efficiency, which does give the F-150 more power overall with 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque versus the RAM 1500's 240 hp and 420 lb-ft. of torque.

There is a payoff to the sacrifice, though, as the increase in torque makes a huge difference in everyday driving and allows for a max towing capacity of 9,200 pounds for the RAM, compared to only 8,200 pounds for the F-150. And thanks to its ultra-efficient engine, the new 1500 also defeats the F-150 in efficiency, able to achieve 19 city and 27 highway mpg compared to the Ford's 18 city and 23 highway mpg.

There's no denying that RAM has outdone themselves and that the EcoDiesel appeals to a wide array of truck buyers, so don't be afraid to give diesel a chance!

RAM 1500 Laramie Limited: King of Luxury

Pickups are the most purchased vehicle type in the U.S. They're apart of America's history, culture, and work. But the days of trucks only being rugged, barebones machines are over. Luxury trucks are here, and their king is the RAM 1500 Laramie Limited.

Starting at just over $50,000, the Laramie Limited is the top of the top-level trims that RAM offers for the 1500. Here at Miami Lakes Automall, you'll easily be able to recognize it because the classic RAM emblem has been replaced by the spelled-out "RAM" logo on the front and back. This makes the already chromed-out 1500 look even more upscale, making the Laramie Limited easily one of the most stand-out pickup truck on the market today. 

So we know the exterior is the most attractive in the pickup market, but you'll be spending most of your time driving it. That means if you're paying $50,000 or more for it, the interior better be the highest possible quality. Don't worry, RAM has you covered.

Utilizing premium leather and Argento wood trim throughout, you might confuse the interior of the Laramie Limited with that of a $50,000 luxury car. That's the type of reaction RAM wants, and it's what makes the model such a value even at its high price. You get the capabilities of a truck coupled with one of the highest-quality interiors available on the market.

 

Whether you're looking for a simple, affordable work truck, an efficient everyday driver, or the best of best pickup available, the RAM 1500 offers it all. To help you find the right one for you, Miami Lakes Automall has one of the largest inventories of RAM 1500 models in the Miami area.
