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?

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.

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.

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.
