Ram Band Van

Ram is getting ready to relaunch its Ram BandVan program. Due to the global pandemic, most things have had to be canceled or postponed. Ram first initiated its BandVan program back in 2018 as a way to help emerging bands by providing them with a ProMaster BandVan. At the time, Ram partnered with SiriusXM and Pandora to give fans an opportunity to hear their favorite bands live. Ram had become the first automaker to offer SiriusXM with 360L and it was also the first to feature personalized stations powered by Pandora. Now all three companies are working together again to promote new and upcoming artists as well as iconic bands like the Foo Fighters. This fall, look out for the Ram BandVan as it crosses state lines bringing music everywhere it goes.

Ram is Hitting the Road

Ram is launching its Ram BandVan once again. The first group to be featured in the Back to Live Tour will be the Foo Fighters. They will be joined by Radkey. In addition to the Foo Fighters and Radkey, Ram will be supporting at least five other emerging artists. New content will be viewable at RamBandVan.com and on social media sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. The punk band Radkey will be the first act of the year. Speaking about the tour Radkey said,

“This has been a year like no other, and now to finally be back on the road rocking with fans in real life, is an incredible feeling,” said Radkey. “We are so thankful to Ram Truck, SiriusXM, and Pandora for our Ram BandVan, enabling us and fellow musicians alike to hit the road running and tour once again.”

Ram will be providing the touring artists with the ProMaster Ram BandVan. It will be equipped with SiriusXM so that the artists themselves can also enjoy a variety of ad-free music. Along with music, artists will be able to enjoy sports, talk, comedy, and other radio genres. The Back to Live Tour will use Ram’s recent ad campaign “Spotlight” with Dave Grohl as well as a feature-film documentary called “What Drives Us,” to start the musical journey off. Ram is excited to offer fans a return to normalcy. The automaker is also excited to help artists get on their feet and reconnect with their fans. As the vice president of Stellantis Marissa Hunter said,

“Our Ram BandVan program first launched in 2018 and we are thrilled to activate the next phase of the initiative to help support musicians doing what they love and bringing their fans the performances that they have missed,” said North America Stellantis Vice President Marissa Hunter. “As the brand that is ‘Built to Serve,’ we share mutual values of hard work and dedication with these talented artists, and it is our pleasure to provide them reliable, comfortable, and spacious ProMaster vans, supporting their careers and helping them to reconnect with friends and fans across the country.”

Here’s Where the Ram 1500 Really Shines

Friday, June 18th, 2021

The 2021 Ram 1500 more than holds its own against its competitors when outshining the competitive full-size pickup segment. Not only is the Ram 1500 an impressive pickup, but it’s also far more modern than the rest — both inside and out. The biggest news about the 2021 Ram 1500 lineup includes the all-new Ram 1500 TRX powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with a whopping 702 horsepower. Designed as a competent off-roader, the Ram 1500 TRX is equipped with a sturdy off-road chassis and suspension, but when it comes to the interior cabin, every single Ram 1500 trim hits it out of the park.  (more…)

Thursday, May 13th, 2021

Stellantis — the new conglomerate formed when Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and PSA Groupe merged– vowed that by 2030 every nameplate under its umbrella, including Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, Ram, Maserati, and other brands, will offer an electric vehicle.

New platforms are already underway to support electric vehicles, and rumor has it that one of those platforms is destined for body-on-frame pickups and SUVs. If all goes according to plan, Ram Trucks should see its first all-electric offering by 2024.  (more…)

The campaign kicks off prior to Mother’s Day and coincides with the release of lead singer Dave Grohl’s “From Cradle to Stage” unscripted series. The spot was inspired by Grohl’s mother, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, and her critically acclaimed book. “From Cradle to Stage” follows Grohl’s previous directorial efforts with “What Drives Us,” a documentary that Grohl described as “a love letter to every musician that has ever jumped in an old van with their friends and left it all behind for the simple reward of playing music.” (more…)

Four Things to Love About the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX

Thursday, March 25th, 2021

There’s no road — paved or not — that the Ram 1500 TRX can’t conquer with its over-the-top supercharged engine, more than 700 horsepower, and a wading depth of 32 inches. Perhaps the fact that the Ram 1500 TRX is pumping out 650 lb-ft of torque has something to do with the fact that it’s such an off-road beast, or maybe it’s the fact that it only needs 4.5 seconds to go from 0 -60 mph — regardless, few vehicles on the current market come close to these performance numbers. Here are four things we love about the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.  (more…)
