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. The 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition ups the ante by bringing an extra level of comfort and style to fans of the Ram 1500 series.
Interior of the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition
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. Stitched throughout the pickup’s interior, these materials come alongside an indigo and sea salt grey color scheme. This color scheme comes with accented aluminum litho bezels. 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.

We see it everyday – those typical truck commercials that usually put on a display of trucks cruising on a dirt road while hauling a load of equipment or towing a trailer. Well, that’s what trucks are commonly used for, duh! However, Ram changed things up a bit for the 2018 model year. The 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition is the epitome of combining luxury and style into a solid work truck. Available in the Ram 1500, Ram 2500, and Ram 3500 lineups, Ram made the initial announcement of their plans to add the Limited Tungsten Edition back in 2017. Considered by Ram to be the most luxurious package offered by the brand, the Ram Limited Tungsten Edition is fitted with all the bells and whistles one can think of when including a gorgeous interior cabin design with exceptional convenience and style.
“The Limited Tungsten Edition is the highest trim level Ram has made available…The new Tungsten Edition is an example of how Ram directly responds to customer input by offering the industry’s most luxurious pickup. Premium truck buyers will recognize the attention to detail, surrounded by quality materials.” – said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand, FCA – Global.
The 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition really is a step above the rest offering consumers a premium level of sophistication. Featuring a shiny Tungsten Chrome on the wheels, grille, accents, and badging, the Tungsten Edition trim levels are also available in classic but bold colors. Some of those color options include Delmonico Red Pearl, Granite Crystal Metallic, Maximum Steel Metallic, and Pearl White. Additionally, the Tungsten’s chrome grille will feature “RAM” spelled out in huge letters. This branding will also be on the trucks tailgate. Some additional upgrades include black headlight frame, a sportier hood, body-painted bumpers, mirrors, and door handles.
Now for the interior cabin – boy, oh boy! Claimed as a segment-first, a Light Greystone suede headliner is probably one of most significant additions to the 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition. Additionally, “Natura Plus” front and indigo-colored premium leather and carpeting are included with rubber floor mats and carpeted inserts that snap the floor, for added protection. One of the most exceptional enhancements featured on the 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition is the-state-of-the-art entertainment system, which provides drivers and passengers with the ultimate listening experience. Equipped with an 8.4-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen display system, this beauty also comes with smartphone integration and SiriusXM Guardian.
So why the name Tungsten? It’s actually a rare metal that has unique properties as well as an eye-catching shiny silver appearance. Out of all the metals, tungsten has not only the highest melting point, but it’s harder in comparison to most steels. As a result of it’s durability and resistance to heat, tungsten is often used in high energy industries, including the aerospace and automotive industries. Even though, tungsten that is found on trucks like the Ram isn’t necessarily pure, once the metal is combined with other metals, it increases their strength and it looks exceptionally amazing.
The 2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition package is expected to arrive by late winter of this year. Here at the Miami Lakes Ram, located in Miami, FL, we offer a huge selection of Ram trucks and vans.

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.

Looking for the most reliable pickup trucks? Look no further than Miami Lakes Automall. We have trucks from the two brands rising to the top of the charts, Ram and Chevrolet. Recently, we learned that Ram trucks are outperforming Ford, and Chevrolet is closing in on the automaker as well. Now, with a little fire that burnt down parts of the F-150 pickup Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan (you can’t prove anything!), consumers are going to see a bit of a hiccup in inventory and supply while production of the F-150 truck comes to a screeching halt for an undisclosed amount of time. With that in the air, Ram and Chevrolet are here to pick up the slack, and Consumer Reports just named several trucks between the two automotive brands as the “Most Reliable Pickup Trucks of the Decade.”
Consumer Reports is an American magazine published by a nonprofit organization dedicated to unbiased product testing, consumer-oriented research, public education, and support. Consumer Reports publications include reviews and comparisons of consumer products and services based on reporting and results from its in-house testing laboratory and survey research center. Such consumer products have a wide range, from noise-canceling headphones to automotive vehicles. Trusted for their unbiased reviews, Consumer Reports is one of several publications consumers can turn to when looking for the truth about a product’s quality and reliability.
Named on Consumer Reports’ list of “Most Reliable Pickup Trucks of the Decade” were the Chevrolet Avalanche, Colorado, Silverado 1500, Silverado 2500HD, and Silverado 3500HD. The Chevrolet Avalanche pickup truck may no longer be available as a new truck (production ended in 2013), but that doesn’t mean a consumer can’t find one used.
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.
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.
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.
Mudding and water-fording are terms known mainly by Jeepers. Vehicles like the Jeep® Renegade, Jeep Wrangler, and even the Jeep Compass are made to go off-road, and they are able to handle varying terrain or the occasional rock crawling. Now that the 2019 Ram 1500 has been unveiled and it has new off-roading features, the light duty Ram truck can also play in the mud and get a little dirty. But first, there are some modifications one should look into before turning their pickup truck into a mud monster.
When going mudding, it’s a good move to make sure one’s vehicle can handle deep mud or water. The 2019 Ram 1500 is available with several wheel options, and they range from 18 to 22 inches, but when it comes to off-roading, tires matter more than the size of the wheels. To really improve the mudding or off-roading experience, make sure the truck is fitted with tires that match the activity, such as multi-terrain or all-terrain tires made for rocky terrain and going off-road, or swamper tires made for getting out of a nasty mess.
To keep those wheels turning, beadlocks are also a good addition. Beadlocks help keep the tires in check when going off-road and mudding, and although some drivers lower the air pressure in their tires for better traction and sidewall flexibility, beadlock wheels mechanically lock the tire bead to the rim. This takes the decrease of tire pressure for better traction out of the equation and helps ensure that the tires remain in place no matter how wild one may maneuver their Ram truck while out on the trail.
