Miranda-lambert-ram-truck

Ram Trucks have become America’s fastest selling truck brand because of their amazing performance and dependability. To bolster sales even more, Ram recently announced that country superstar Miranda Lambert is the brand’s new spokeswoman.

Lambert’s first act as representative for Ram came when she auctioned her customized Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn with proceeds going to the MuttNation Foundation. The winning bid was $54,901, according to US Weekly. Lambert started the foundation to build shelters and increase awareness nationwide for pet adaption. To this date, Lambert has already raised over $2 million for her foundation.

Ram has seen their sales sky rocket in recent years. The USA Today reports that sales for Ram Trucks has increased by 26% already this year. Considering the eyes Lambert will bring to the brand, not to mention the exceptional end of year deals, Ram should have an outstanding finish to what has been one of their best years to date.

You can visit your Dodge Ram Miami dealer to discover these unique trucks. While there, be sure to test drive the 2014 Ram 1500. This Ram truck has exceptional performance, particularly with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine, which delivers the best-in-class fuel efficiency of 28 highway mpg. Even with the increased efficiency, you’ll receive the legendary power that has made Ram a mainstay on American roads.

Along with great efficiency, Ram is proud to offer special features you won’t find on other trucks. The Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension is exclusive to Ram and will improve your truck’s efficiency. It accomplishes this by using smart sensors to lower the truck when you are driving at highway speeds. This reduces drag and boosts fuel efficiency.

Another excellent benefit is the available Uconnect Access System. This system transforms your truck’s cabin into a mobile entertainment or office unit. With the bold touchscreen, you can access maps or control interior climate with ease. Best of all, with steering wheel controls and voice command, you can control your phone, audio and navigation functions while keeping your attention on the road.

Ram Won’t Make a Hellcat Pickup Right Now

2014-ram-1500-ecodiesel-front

Chrysler has taken performance to a whole never level with their Hellcat V8 engine. This engine delivers an astonishing 707-horsepower and has propelled the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to heights of incredible popularity in such a short time.

With Chrysler riding such a successful wave with their new engine, the question is whether they plan to add their Hellcat engine to other models. Recently, Car and Driver spoke to Ram Trucks CEO Bob Hegbloom and asked him whether they have plans to equip the Ram 1500 with the Hellcat engine. His response was at this time they do not.

On the surface, this is disappointing news just for the sheer fact it would be amazing to see a Ram 1500 with the Hellcat engine. However, he did leave some wiggle room in his answer that may indicate the Ram could be seeing a Hellcat engine down the line.

What is likely happening is they want to see how their two current models: the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat perform in sales. If those two models are high in demand, it may propel other brands within the Chrysler family such as Ram to equip a model with the Hellcat engine.

With that said, it isn’t as if the Ram 1500 doesn’t have power under the hood without the Hellcat engine. Currently, when you stop by your Ram truck dealers, you can buy the Ram 1500 with your choice of three advanced engines.

Ram is proud to be the only light-duty truck to offer a diesel engine option. With the Ram 1500, you can equip it with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine. This engine is emissions-compliant in all 50 states and delivers the best-in-class fuel economy of 28 highway mpg.

A more powerful choice is the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. This engine uses Start-Stop technology to give your truck the perfect blend of power and efficiency. The result is a truck that deliver 305-horsepower and can handle heavy loads with ease.

Lastly, there’s the bold 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine. This engine delivers legendary performance that will leave you awed at its amazing capabilities; it also provides the right amount of torque to handle your most demanding jobs.

As you can see, even without the Hellcat engine the Ram 1500 is a force. To experience the truck’s exhilarating performance in person, feel free to visit us today!

Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is the “Green Truck of the Year”

2014-ram-1500-ecodiesel-profile

Ram rolled the dice when they decided to make their light-duty trucks with a diesel engine option. So far, that risk has been paying off wonderfully for Ram. In addition to strong sales, prompting others such as Nissan to offer diesel engines on their trucks, the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel earned the “Green Truck of the Year” award from the Green Car Journal.

Explaining their decision, publisher and editor of the Green Car Journal, Ron Cogan, said the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel embodies what a green truck should be. Another draw to this pickup, according to Cogan, is the truck’s amazing versatility: not only do buyers receive a truck that is environmentally friendly, they receive a truck with enough torque to deliver the power they need.

It isn’t a surprise to find this truck is beating its competitors. After all, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel comes equipped with the 3.0-liter, V6 engine that delivers a best-in-class 28 highway miles per gallon. The engine also has green features such as its diesel particulate filter and the selective catalyst reduction, making this truck emissions-compliant in all states.

Ram continues to see rapid success with this model. The Dallas Morning News reports the truck accounted for 10 percent of all Ram sales this year. That’s a significant development, considering they were the first manufacturer to offer a diesel engine in their light-duty trucks. Currently, Nissan will offer a Cummins diesel engine with their 2015 Titan model while competitors such as General Motors have yet to announce a diesel option on their light duty line.

All of these factors show the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is an excellent choice if you crave efficiency and power. To learn more about this unique truck, be sure visit us today.

A Brief History of Ram Trucks: The 1980s

89DodgeRam_F34

Ram trucks have become the fastest growing truck brand in America. However, they didn’t arrive at this point overnight. It took hard work, ingenuity and a firm commitment to build the best trucks on the road.

Here at Miami Lakes Ram, we honor Ram’s commitment to providing you with the best truck possible. When you visit us, your Dodge Ram Miami dealer, you’ll see Ram’s commitment to their unique tradition. Here is a look at some of the enhancements they made with their 1980s models, which shows their ability to improvise to give you the truck you want.

The first truck to carry the Ram name came out in 1981, bringing the Ram badge back for the first time since 1933. Dodge initially used the Ram badge to symbolize the ruggedness of their trucks, according to Edmunds.

What made the 1981 models so distinctive were its construction, as Dodge made their Ram trucks with fresh sheet metal. This made them lighter and made their bodies less susceptible to rust. It also bolster the Ram’s appearance, giving it an edgier allure that coincides well with the Ram brand.

Another excellent feature was the powertrain choices Dodge offered on this Ram model. Consumers had their choice of the durable 3.7-liter engine, the “Slant Six” engine or the 5.9-liter V8 engine, which delivered up to 170 horsepower. This gave them a wealth of choices that appealed to varying customers’ needs. Altogether, this was an excellent debut for the Ram, as consumers enjoyed the power, style and capability of these amazing trucks.

Throughout the 1980s, Dodge made minor adjustments on their Ram trucks. In 1983, Dodge introduced a four-wheel drive Miser model and then dropped the brand name a year later. In 1986, Dodge designed a bold new grille for their Ram trucks. In 1988, Dodge added electronic fuel injection to their V8 engine. It was in 1989 where Ram trucks saw their biggest enhancements of the decade.

In 1989, Dodge introduced new engines in their Ram trucks. Gone was the slant six engine replaced with the 3.9-liter V6 engine. Another new engine selection was the Cummins Turbodiesel engine. This six-cylinder engine promised to deliver large loads with its 400 foot-pounds of torque. Dodge also enhanced many of the Ram’s pivotal components such as its battery, transmission and climate control systems. The result was a truck that propelled the Ram brand strongly into the 1990s.
