Ram to release 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry Edition

Friday, July 30th, 2021

Ram has been rolling out new trims for the 2022 Ram 1500 one after another. With its recent performance, it’s no wonder Ram is working to improve upon the iconic pickup. Having released the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition in celebration of a decade of success, Ram is now focusing on another trim. This new trim is to be off-road-focused. It makes sense as Ram recently announced a GT upgrade package for the Ram 1500 Laramie and Rebel. Focusing more on off-road capabilities and performance, Ram is releasing the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry edition later in 2021.

 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry Edition 

The all-new 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry edition trim is to be based on the Ram 1500 Big Horn. The new Ram trim will combine Ram’s most popular packages to create a unique off-road pickup. Equipped with a four-wheel drive, the BackCountry trim will add the 4×4 Off-Road Group Package. This will include tow hooks, skid plates, off-road-tuned shocks, hill descent control, all-terrain tires, and a rear electronic locking differential. Ready to tackle any off-road obstacle, the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry is a tougher pickup than ever before.

Along with the Off-Road Group package, the off-road pickup will include Ram’s Bed Utility Group package. This will include upper adjustable tie-downs, a deployable bed step, a bed extender, in-bed LED lighting, and a spray-in bed liner.  

The 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry will come available with either the standard 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine or the 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine with Ram’s eTorque mild hybrid system. 

Interior & Exterior of the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry

What makes the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry special is the interior and exterior. Inside the off-road pickup is a black interior with bucket seats. A 7-inch infotainment screen is situated in the center console (though an upgradeable 8.4-inch Uconncet screen may be available), and a BackCountry badge is displayed on the instrument panel. The off-road pickup also comes with Mopar all-weather slush mats. 

As for the exterior, this is where the 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry pickup really shines. A combination of the Sport Appearance package and Night Edition gives the BackCountry trim a body-colored grille. Along with this are 18-inch black-painted wheels, black badges, black headlight bezels, black mirror caps, and black exhaust tips. The off-road pickup also gets running boards and a tonneau cover.

The 2022 Ram 1500 BackCountry edition will start at $41,780 MSRP (plus destination fee). The new off-road pickup will increase the versatility of the Ram 1500 series, furthering its success. It will be available in the fall of 2021.

Friday, July 9th, 2021

Whoever said a pickup couldn’t compete within the luxury category hasn’t been paying attention, specifically to Ram trucks. After a decade of producing luxury pickups that get the job done, Ram is now commemorating its success with a 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition pickup. The luxury pickup industry has gained a new poster child for refinement and sophistication.

A record of strong performance, the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition features several improvements to its interior design. These improvements include a mesh of high-quality materials such as wood, metal, and leather.

Additional interior features include a metal pedal trim kit, an exclusive graphic displayed on the instrument cluster, an updated rotary shifter center cap, and a 10th-anniversary badge on the center console.

The 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition also features quilted leather seats and door inserts along with a suede headline that extends to the overhead visors. This is all paired with a premium 19-speaker sound system. Drivers will find an interior that radiates luxury not found in just any Ram 1500 series. A succinct description of the refinement added to the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition comes from Ram Brand Chief Executive Officer Mike Koval Jr.   

“The new 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition celebrates 10 years of luxury pickup truck leadership, featuring the ultimate combination of capability, luxury, and refinement…Ram 1500 Limited buyers have enjoyed the highest quality materials for a decade now and the Limited 10th Anniversary Edition is the latest example of how Ram delivers the most luxurious pickups in the industry.” – Mike Koval Jr., Ram Brand Chief Executive Officer – Stellantis

Each pickup comes with Ram’s multifunction tailgate, a Mopar center-mounted bed step, and adjustable cargo tie-down hooks. Available with a crew cab configuration, engine options for the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition will consist of either a 5.7-liter V-8 with eTorque mild-hybrid assist or a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel.

The 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition will start at $61,870 MSRP (plus destination fee). The luxury pickup will go on sale in the third quarter of 2021.

2019 Ram ProMaster is the Strongest Yet

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

2019 Ram ProMaster

Photo credit: AutoBlog

What makes the upcoming Ram ProMaster lineup special is how innovative their lineup is over other brands. Each year, these vehicles become stronger, lighter and better vehicles to own. Perfect for business owners, the Ram ProMaster is a great choice to help grow your business and handle the work you need done. With more space added and increased options, let’s go over why the newest Ram ProMaster commercial vehicles are better and stronger than ever. The new Ram ProMaster trucks are also looking as sleek as can be. Let’s go over why!

Sleeker and Stronger For a Reason

These new Ram ProMaster vans are lighter and more aerodynamic with an available eTorque small electric assistive motor that is available addition to the 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 and 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine options. This torque provides up to 90 lb-ft of torque over last year’s model for the V6 and up to 130 lb-ft of torque in short-term torque, boosting fuel efficiency for the gasoline engines.

More Maximum Payload Means More Results

Have a lot of work to do? Good. The Ram ProMaster is here to help. With a payload increase that allows for more cargo hauling and strength, the jobs will get done fast in the new Ram. 2019 Ram ProMaster 1500 allows up to 4,000 pounds for a maximum payload. The ProMaster 2500 moved up to 4,230 pounds and the newest ProMaster 3500 is up 240 pounds to 4,680 pounds of maximum payload. The Ram ProMaster boasts Best-in-class maximum-payload, way more than the Ford Transit and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

With a greater maximum towing capacity, up to 6,800 pounds for the 1500, the 2019 ProMaster is definitely stronger the previous model year and only costs $30,195 (plus destination fee) for the 2019 base model. The 2019 Ram ProMaster also costs significantly less than rivals Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Ford Transit. When it comes to adding a new commercial van to your fleet, just know the latest Ram ProMaster now performs with greater strength and payload capacity at a friendly cost for owners.

More Ram, Please

Ram fans can show off their Ram ProMaster like never before with the addition of the RAM script on the front of the grille for certain trims. Already boasting the Best-in-class cargo height, width and lowest floor height, the Ram ProMaster has introduced the 126-inch wheelbase that includes a low roof for the 2500 trim. The 3500 trim can have a low or high roof for the first time ever. Best of all, Ram will include three configurations in this years lineup.

New Ram Off-Road Package VS Mopar Ram Runner Kit

Thursday, April 26th, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall Ram Off-road

Miami Lakes Automall Ram Off-road

Who said the Ram trucks can’t handle going off-road? If they missed the off-road feature capabilities, and the new off-road package for the 2019 Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck, and our piece on “Three Amazing Off-Road Ram Trucks”, then here’s a little more evidence for the naysayers in one word – Mopar. Does anyone remember the off-road Ram Runner concept image that Mopar showed off several years ago at the 2010 Moab Jeep Safari event? Sadly, the kit is no longer available, but off-road enthusiasts need not worry. Take a look at how the new off-road package matches up with the kit by Mopar.

Mopar Ram Runner Kit

As noted, back in 2010, Mopar showed up with the “Mopar Ram Runner Kit”. Developed in conjunction with Baja off-road racer Kent Kroeker, the kit had a number of components, including an additional Pre-Runner Stage II Lift Kit, off-road front bumper, off-road front and rear fenders, off-road rear-tire carrier, sport performance hood and cat-back exhaust. For people interested in more ground clearance, there was also the Pre-Runner Stage II LIft Kit. It included the following: a 5-link coil-spring rear suspension, 4130 chromoly lower control arms, upper control arms rebuildable high-angle ball joints, and forged steel, high-angle tie rods. This kit added fourteen inches of suspension travel in the front and rear, and provided 13 inches of ground clearance in the front and 16 inches of ground clearance at the rocker panels.

2019 Ram 1500 Off-Road Package

The Ram 1500 has always had off-road capability available, but nothing like the capability with the 2019 1500. A new off-road package has been added for the next-generation pickup truck, and it may match up with the old Mopar Ram Runner kit. The package adds a one-inch suspension lift, with or without available four-corner air suspension, an electronic-locking rear differential, and 32-inch on/off-road tires on (standard) 18- or (available) 20-inch wheels to provide additional grip. Denoted by rear-fender decals equipped with the 4×4 Off-road Package, any 2019 Ram 1500 modded with this package will be unmistakable from the rest. The transfer cases have also been upgraded with BorgWarner 48-12 for part-time 4WD operation with Hi and Low ranges and the BorgWarner 48-11 for on-demand 4WD.

Tips for Loading a Trailer and Connecting it to Your Truck

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Ram 1500 Trailer Loading Tips

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Ram 1500 Trailer Loading Tips

Some truck owners out there have at one time or another realized they have no clue how to hitch up a trailer to their truck. Loading cargo into a vehicle is one thing, but hauling it all as a separate unit a part from the vehicle can be a little tricky at first. Aside from getting the proper trailer, assuming the object(s) being towed require one, a truck owner needs to know how to properly connect the trailer to their truck, or they may lose all of their cargo before even leaving the driveway. Worse if things come undone while on the highway, so let’s chat about loading up a truck and connecting the hitch.

Keeping a Center of Gravity with Cargo

Weight is important to keep in mind when loading cargo onto a trailer. Making sure the weight is balanced will help to avoid issues while on the road. Most experienced truck drivers would say to keep a good ratio of 60 percent of the cargo weight towards the front half of the trailer (unless directed otherwise by the trailer manufacturer), and make sure it’s the heavy stuff first, to keep the truck’s center of gravity closer to its rear axle. The remaining 40 percent of the cargo goes towards the rear half of the trailer- using some of the heavy stuff works here too to keep an equal balance across the trailer. Your best bet is to put the heaviest cargo over the trailer axles.

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Ram Tungsten 2500 and 3500

Now that the 2019 Ram 1500 has debuted, other Ram truck models will start to debut as well. Most likely, the Ram 2500 and 3500 will get updates soon enough. Although there hasn’t been a whole lot of news surrounding 2018 Ram 2500 or the Ram 3500, both trucks shine on their own. So much so, that Ram incorporated the heavy duty trucks into several limited edition packages over the course of 2017 for the 2018 model year.

Ram 2500 and 3500

Able to powered by one of three engines for the 2018 Ram 2500 and two engines for the 2018 Ram 3500, both heavy duty pickup trucks have the powerful and legendary 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel Inline-six cylinder engine in their arsenal. Able to generate up to 370 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque on the 2018 Ram 2500, 385 horsepower and 930 lb-ft of torque on the 2018 Ram 3500, this engine provides some incredible towing power. Properly equipped, the 2018 Ram 2500 can tow up to 17,980 pounds and carry a payload of 3160 pounds. The 2018 Ram 3500 heavy duty pickup truck recently recorded a best-in-class fifth-wheel towing capacity of 30,000 pounds!

The 2019 Ram 1500 Pricing Announced

Thursday, March 15th, 2018
Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Ram 1500 Pricing Announced

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Ram 1500 Pricing Announced

The 2019 Ram 1500 truck debuted back in January at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, and since then it’s quickly taken over the spotlight for light duty pickup trucks. More news about the truck and its capabilities have come out, and we’ve seen some new high-end and luxury trims, Mopar and Ram teamed up for the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, and most recently we got the starting MSRP. Yes, the pricing for the 2019 Ram 1500 has been announced, but before we talk about the affordable price range, let’s remember what Ram is bringing to the table.

Power and Capability

The second vehicle to sport it, the 2019 Ram 1500 comes with the option to add the new eTorque system from FCA into its powertrain (standard on the V6 engine). With two engines currently available to the pickup truck, a 305 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine and a 395 horsepower 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine, both are able to generate torque at a standstill thanks to the new eTorque system. When revving up, the V6 can deliver 269 lb-ft of torque with an additional 90 lb-ft with the eTorque system. The V8 HEMI on the other hand can generate up to 410 lb-ft of torque, and if opting in for the eTorque system option, the V8 HEMI receives an addition of 120 lb-ft of torque to its threshold.

For the 2019 model year, the Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck has been given a new 4×4 off-road package. Already designed to act as an off-road vehicle thanks to Ram’s four-corner air suspension system and a front and rear stabilizer bar, the 2019 Ram 1500 lineup has even more options. Available on most trims, drivers can now go off-road by opting in for the off-road package that adds a one-inch suspension lift, with or without the available four-corner air suspension, an electronic-locking rear differential, robust skid plate protection (transfer case, steering, engine and gas tank), tow hooks, hill-descent control for added off-road capability, and 32-inch on/off-road tires on (standard) 18- or (available) 20-inch wheels to provide additional grip.

2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star Trim in Dallas

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Ram 1500 Lone StarThe 2019 Ram 1500 debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2018, and since then has been making headway with a new announcement every few weeks. Just recently, details and media about the Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn were released. Now, the original “Texas Truck,” the 2019 Ram 1500 has one more job to do – get work done, so say “hello” to the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star.

Popping up at the 2018 Dallas Auto Show, the new 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star trim received a heart-felt welcome when it debuted. The Ram 1500 Lone Star trim is the brand’s top selling truck in Texas, so it only made sense to make its first stop the heart of Texas. With working hands in mind, the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star comes with a new look and many options for customizing one’s pickup truck to their wants and need.

To stand out from the rest of the 2019 Ram 1500 lineup, the Ram 1500 Lone Star comes standard with bright front and rear bumpers, chrome door handle centers, a bright grille surround with billet inserts, 18-inch aluminum wheels, and fog lamps for the exterior. Consumers have the option of outfitting the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star with a Crew Cab or Quad Cab, and there’s a 5’7” or 6’4” truck bed available Crew Cab configurations; only a 6’4” truck bed can be installed when going for the Quad Cab configuration. Consumers also have the ability to choose a 4×4 or 4×4 drivetrain thanks to the new off-road features available on the new 2019 Ram 1500. When the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star is first made available, it will only be available with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, but there is speculation that the 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine will be made available at a later date.

When it comes to the interior, consumers have a lot more options to configure the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star. For one, consumers may choose the choice of a six-passenger bench in the front or the option of installing five-passenger bucket seats. Has that ever been an option on a Ram light duty pickup truck? It sounds like a blend of the Ram 1500 and a Ram ProMaster City cargo van. Of course, the standard seating option will be the usual 60/40 split rear bench seat.

Then there’s a whole lot of package options available with the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star trim. Many of these include function-specific enhancements to further advance one’s ability to get the job done with the 2019 Ram 1500. Package options include a Bed Utility Group, a 4×4 Off-road Group, a Protection Group, Trailer Tow Mirrors and Brake Group, Max Towing Package, and Premium Lighting Group. There are also several options to further the ability to configure the Lone Star pickup truck with the class-exclusive Active Level Air Suspension, electric-locking rear axle, Blind-spot Monitoring, and 20-inch aluminum wheels.

Keep in mind, all of these options are available on just the Ram 1500 Lone Star trim. The 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck still offers many great features even in its raw form. The new 2019 Ram 1500 has the strongest frame of any Ram truck to date. The truck’s frame is made of 98 percent high-strength steel, but somehow the truck managed to shed 225 pounds by making greater use of aluminum on various truck components.

Standard on the 5.7L HEMI V8 engine and a 3.6L V6 powertrains is an eTorque system that provides hybrid capabilities and additional power. Without the eTorque system, the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 is capable of generating 410 lb-ft of torque, but with the eTorque system, it gets an additional 130 lb-ft of torque at its disposal.

Don’t forget about all the great tech either. For the first-time ever on a pickup truck, a 12-inch touchscreen is available. The new screen provides access to the Uconnect 4 infotainment system and it is able to display two screens at once with two separate functions or take up the whole screen with navigation. Uconnect on an 8.4-inch touchscreen is of course still available for those that prefer the old cabin setup. The 2019 Ram 1500 will be the first vehicle to host the new Sirius 360L platform, a next-generation Sirius that learns what the user listens to and can be accessed virtually anywhere. Some added safety has also been added, a 360 surround view camera has been added to the truck and it provides the driver with a birds-eye view of the vehicle, and the available blind spot system with trailer coverage helps drivers feel more at ease while on the road.

The 2019 Ram 1500 just keeps getting more exciting. Yee-haw! Tell us what you think about it on Miami Lakes Ram social media.

Miami Lakes Automall and FCA Dealers Shining Bright

Miami Lakes FCA Bright Night Lighting

 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.
