Ram 1500 EV to Feature a Range Extender

Friday, March 4th, 2022

Ram has been in the news for its upcoming all-electric 2024 Ram 1500 EV. Like many automakers, Ram has been working on its own electric vehicles. Ram has touted its Ram 1500 EV as the next level of EV pickups. Although competitors like Ford and Tesla have revealed their own electric pickups, Ram has the advantage of making adjustments based on consumer sentiment and feedback. The latest news regarding the electric pickup is that the Ram 1500 EV will feature a range extender. The electric pickup is set to debut in 2024, but for now, we’ll discuss the impact that such a feature could have on the overall pickup sector. 

Ram EV May Feature a Range Extender

The Ram 1500 EV is set to debut in 2024. Ram CEO Mike Koval Jr. has been speaking on the upcoming capabilities and specifications of the electric pickup. One of these is the addition of a range extender. Since 2024 is a few years away, Ram has the luxury of committing to higher performance standards and more driver-assist features than other competitors. If Ram can figure out a way to implement its range extender, it will greatly boost the automaker’s credibility as a top automaker. 

The addition of a range extender, especially a combustion engine which is par the course for the feature, will make the Ram EV a plug-in hybrid. Automakers like Mazda have been experimenting with this PHEV system like with their electric MX-30. The electric SUV has a paltry amount of battery range (100 miles), so a range extender is almost a necessity. With the Ram EV however, Ram has stated its electric pickup will feature an impressive 400 miles of battery range. As a reminder, Ram has the luxury of boasting the best of the best in terms of capabilities due to its extended time frame. Despite this luxury, if Ram can make good on its promises, competitors like Ford and Tesla will have to follow suit.

Koval Jr. did not speak more on the range extender, but the addition would allow the Ram EV to boast more versatility and capability than its competitors. One of the largest concerns about EVs is the range. The average battery range is around 230 miles, so incorporating a range extender would bring in more consumers who see the current range estimates as obstacles. We’ll have to stay tuned for more information, but here’s hoping the Ram EV measures up to its expected 400 miles of battery range.

The Ram 1500 Classic is the Ideal Pickup for Enthusiasts

Friday, November 12th, 2021

Ram has been dominating lately with its Ram 1500. The rough and tough pickup was recently ranked first among light-duty pickup trucks in a 2021 APPEAL Study. Given its capability, durability, and overall toughness as a pickup, the Ram 1500 has continued to be an iconic truck. Ram offers the Ram 1500 with a range of combinations and features. Consumers wanting a truck oriented toward hauling can opt for Towing packages while those looking for an everyday truck can opt for more luxurious trims like the Laramie or Rebel trim. Better still, Ram offers specialty Ram trucks like the TRX RexRunner for those wanting more excitement out of their pickup. All these are great choices but one Ram pickup that holds up and is relatively affordable is the Ram 1500 Classic. We’ll take a look at this light-duty pickup and check out its versatility.

Checking Out The Ram 1500 Classic

The Ram 1500 Classic is one of the most affordable yet capable pickups available. The pickup starts at an MSRP of $29,490 (plus destination fee) and comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Consumers can opt for higher outputs like a 5.7L Hemi V8, but the V6 can certainly get the job done. The Ram 1500 Classic uses an automatic transmission and it can tow up to 8240 pounds when equipped with the right features. Given the capabilities, this pickup is well worth the price.

Where the Ram 1500 Classic shines is with its powertrain and affordable price. While the interior and exterior may not be anything to brag about, it’s likely that those consumers wanting an affordable pickup may not be too concerned with luxury and design. The exterior of the Ram Classic, for example, is a throwback to previous Ram trucks so there isn’t too much in terms of detail. This is also a way to save costs. Still, there are three trim levels for the pickup including the Tradesmen, the Express, and the Warlock. The Tradesmens trim features a black neutral front design and simple wheels. The Express trim comes with a painted front end and upgraded wheels. The Warlock trim is the higher-end of the three and it features a new front fascia and aggressive paint schemes. It also comes with black wheels.

Though the Ram 1500 Classic looks pretty barebones both inside and out, it features different body style options. Consumers can opt for either a two-door style or, with an extended cab option, a four-door style. The Ram’s bed comes standard at 6 foot 4 inches but an 8-foot option can be chosen as well. For those wanting more durability, a 4×4 option is available. Overall, the Ram 1500 Classic is the ultimate pickup in terms of affordability. It’s got toughness and is capable of getting the job done no matter what that may be.

Friday, October 29th, 2021

The Ram 1500 is once again in the spotlight as it takes yet another award. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently awarded the top honor of Texas Truck of the Year. The pickup was also awarded High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades all come soon after the Ram 1500 won first place in the 2021 APEAL study. Here the pickup was designated as the best light-duty pickup based on consumer sentiment and feedback. Truly the Ram 1500 is leagues ahead of the competition. The newest accolades for the pickup come from the Texas Motor Press Association Off-Road Invitational which focuses on bringing automotive industry professionals together to highlight different aspects of the industry. The audience is primarily Texas-based but the membership is made up of automotive journalists who cover a range of vehicles from cars, trucks, and SUVs to ATVs and UTVs. They are all knowledgeable and share key insights into the leading vehicles of the automotive industry. In 2021 they recognized the Ram 1500 for its versatility, capability, and overall high performance as a pickup that can get the job done.

Ram 1500 TRX Recognized as Texas Truck of the Year

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was recently recognized as the Texas Truck of the Year and the High-Performance Truck of the Year. These accolades come from the 2021 Texas Motor Press Association event that recognizes the best vehicles in the industry. Ram has done a superb job with their Ram 1500. The pickup has served consumers as a powerful and durable vehicle that can handle any job. Towing, hauling, and getting to the destination is what a pickup is about. The Ram does all that and more with the latest technology and safety features. About the Ram 1500, the president of the Texas Motor Press Association Bryan Grant said,

“The challenging off-road trails were no problem for Ram 1500 TRX as it easily trekked over the roads with massive horsepower, multiple drive modes and lofty ground clearance. It was so much fun to experience the truck conquer the trails. We all took notice of the wild animal roar exhaust note off in the distance,” said Bryan Grant, the president of Texas Motor Press Association.

Bryan Grant, President of Texas Motor Press Association

Given the Ram 1500’s capabilities, many recognize it as an industry-standard pickup truck. The Ram truck brand was first started in 2009. It began as a stand-alone division focused on meeting the needs and demands of truck buyers. The brand has grown exponentially over the years as it has expanded its lineup with vehicles like the Ram 1500, Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty, and 3500/4500/5500 series Chassis Cabs. The brand also offers its ProMaster vans which allow groups to travel together with their equipment. Overall Ram has stayed true to its mission of building trucks that get hard work done and take families where they need to go.

Ram will continue to build on its lineup as it offers higher performance, greater convenience, and lasting durability. The automaker has racked up award after award each year. As the years go by, people will continue to depend on a strong pickup. With their new Know and Go mobile app, Ram is aiming to increase customer satisfaction and deliver more immersive experiences. We’ll have to see where the automaker goes from here, but right now it looks like its lead is stronger than ever.

What to Know About the All-New 2022 Ram 1500

Friday, October 8th, 2021

Ram has updated the 2022 Ram 1500 to be more reliable, more comfortable, and depending on the trim, much more adaptable. The 2022 Ram 1500 is a full-sized pickup capable of getting the job done. If towing or hauling is required, the Ram 1500 is a great choice. For off-roading, the Ram 1500’s BackCountry trim makes for an excellent selection. If performance is preferred, the Ram 1500 features a G/T package that guarantees powerful performance. Truly the Ram 1500 offers versatility unlike any other pickup. Ram has made sure to update its iconic pickup for the 2022 model year with features, upgrades, and interior aesthetics that make it an optimal choice for pickup fans. Ram owners will enjoy comfort and luxury blended into a powerful beast of a pickup. We’ll dive in deeper to see just what Ram owners can expect for the 2022 Ram 1500.

The 2022 Ram 1500 is Versatile

The standard 2022 Ram 1500 comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 305 horsepower. Ram did not update the engine to be more powerful for 2022, but this is where the versatility of the Ram 1500 comes into play. Ram offers several trims and package upgrades that allow Ram owners to customize their pickup how they want. For more power and performance, the Ram G/T sport package for the Laramie and Rebel trims does more than enough. This package includes a unique exhaust system, paddle shifters, and cold-air intake. It features a larger V8 engine, air suspension, and front and rear camera sensors. With this sports package, Ram 1500 owners can push their pickup to peak performance.

Another trim that expands the Ram 1500’s versatility is the BackCountry edition. This trim reinforces off-road capabilities as it makes use of a 4×4 Off-Road Group Package. This package includes tow hooks, skid plates, off-road-tuned shocks, hill descent control, all-terrain tires, and a rear electronic locking differential. The BackCountry Ram 1500 also comes equipped with either a 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine or a 5.7L Hemi V-8 engine with Ram’s eTorque mild hybrid system. Another trim for the Ram 1500 is the Limited 10th Anniversary edition which focuses heavily on luxury. This trim adds comfort and luxury both outside and inside the Ram 1500. There’s truly something for everyone.

Inside the 2022 Ram 1500

The 2022 Ram 1500 features a more comfortable interior. The Limited 10th Anniversary edition bumps interior comfort and luxury up a couple of levels, but the base pickup has its own level as well. Features inside the Ram 1500 include heated leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a ton of cabin space. Higher trims include more driver-assist features and conveniences like a 12-inch touchscreen. Of course, these end up costing more but the value of the features makes it well worth it. 

The 2022 Ram 1500 comes with safety features like front and rear parking sensors, a 360° surround-view camera, and automatic emergency braking. The starting price for the 2022 Ram 1500 is $33,975 (plus destination fee), but this price gets more expensive with higher-end trims. The G/T Package, for example, on the Rebel and Laramie trims can go for $47,850 (plus destination fee) and the BackCountry edition goes for $38,700 (plus destination fee). The price points can be discouraging but for the number of features, they can be well worth it. Really it comes down to what Ram owners want out of their 2022 Ram 1500. The pickup offers just about everything a pickup owner could want which makes it so versatile and capable.

2022 Ram ProMaster Van Receives New Transmission and Technology

Thursday, September 2nd, 2021

Ram is bringing music to fans around the country with the return of the Ram BandVan. Ram first launched its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help up-and-coming artists and bands by supplying them with a ProMaster van. The automaker partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live as they toured in the full-sized van. The Back to Live Tour will be launching with the Foo Fighters heading the first act. They will be traveling inside the 2022 Ram ProMaster Van which Ram has recently updated. The van features a new transmission and updated technology and safety features. Artists will be able to enjoy the comfortable and tuned-up BandVan as they travel the country touring.

New Technology Inside the ProMaster Van

The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van has gotten a new interior upgrade. Ram has updated the transmission, infotainment system, and safety features. Each van is powered by a transverse-mounted 3.6L V6 engine capable of 280 horsepower and 260lb-ft of torque. The addition of a new nine-speed automatic transmission has allowed the front wheels to be utilized more. Ram has stated that this new automatic transmission will help improve fuel efficiency and deliver smoother gear changes. 

Aside from the transmission, Ram has upgraded the interior cabin of the 2022 ProMaster Van. The van’s center stack has been redesigned with a new 7.0-inch touchscreen. An optional 10-inch touchscreen is also available. The touchscreen systems feature Uconnect5 software which enables over-the-air updates. It also enables wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as Amazon Alexa voice assist. Additional upgrades include more charging ports, two USB and USB Type-C ports, and a 115-volt outlet. The 2022 Ram ProMaster Van also includes a revised center stack that features HVAC controls that replace older rotary knobs. A new panel of switches replaces hazard lights, traction control, and more. The steering wheel comes with more controls and the driver has a more modern instrument panel.

The last change to the 2022 ProMaster Van is a multitude of driver and safety assist technologies. The previous year’s model introduced new active safety features like automated emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring. Now, the full-sized van has a 360-degree camera, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, and lane-keeping assist. Bands and artists can rest easy knowing they’re safe on the road in the Ram BandVan. Ram hasn’t announced pricing for the 2022 ProMaster Van yet, but prices aren’t likely to be too much higher from previous years. The full-sized commercial van will go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2021.

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

WardsAuto Names 2019 Ram 1500 on 10 Best Interiors List

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

Miami Lakes Automall 2019 Ram 1500 WardsAuto

Wow, the 2019 Ram 1500 has really been dominating the auto industry recently. So much is going for this truck since its debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. First, there were updates on trims such as the Ram 1500 BigHorn (also known as the Lone Star by Texans), Laramie Longhorn, and Tradesman, and then we found out the 2019 Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck would still be as still as affordable as ever, with an MSRP starting at $31,695 (plus destination fee). There was also the presentation at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show; Ram and Mopar presented a new catalog of performance parts to personalize the new Ram truck. What’s more, consumers don’t even need to go for aftermarket accessories to enjoy the 2019 Ram 1500. WardsAuto just named it on their “10 Best Interiors” list, making the new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck a winner inside and out.

Is it really any surprise though? When the 2019 Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck debuted, the body and the cabin were completely redesigned in comparison with past alterations. The automaker’s attention to detail is always superb, and this year consumer convenience and comfortability stood out in the interior more than ever. For the 2019 model year, the Ram 1500 integrates acoustic glass and active noise cancellation technologies to create an quiet interior cabin free of traffic noises and the loud music of our neighbors on the road. And it’s pretty clear when talking about technology, there’s one bit of the center console that really catches the eye.

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.
