New Ram Trucks at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Peters
One of the best ways to decide whether or not you like a vehicle is to take a test drive. Of course you can take a test drive at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Peters. Their friendly team is knowledgeable and is sure to help you see all of the great attributes that the different Dodge Ram vehicles have to offer. However, what if you really want to push a Ram to the limit, you might want to take a test drive on The Mojave Road. We want to share with you just what you can expect from this more intense test drive.
One could argue that a Ram Power Wagon is more able than necessary for the Mojave Road, and as long as everything’s going your way it is. However, with questionable weather, that dry lake that sometimes isn’t, a long-wheelbase two-wheel drive and a highway-tire four-wheel-drive truck in the convoy, and solo exploring on the agenda, extra capability is always welcome. And then there’s the fatigue-fighting factors of relaxed body motions on the trail and a quiet highway ride because from almost anywhere the Mojave Road is a highway ride away.
“The Power Wagon’s extra compression suspension travel, well calibrated Bilsteins, and flexible sidewalls (it’s the only three-quarter-ton truck on Load Range D tires) make it surprisingly good for a 7,400-pound truck that also manages highways well.”-autoblog.com
What makes the Mojave Road a great place to test drive the Ram is that on this one road, you encounter nearly every road type and condition, along with every weather condition. There are few places better than this road to get a comprehensive glimpse at Ram performance.

Ram 3500 at All Star Dodge Ram near St. Peters
We love getting a chance to look at the prototypes of the new models that we expect to see over the next few years. One prototype that we are really excited about is the 2018 Ram 3500. We were bummed for a while because we were expecting a redesign on the Ram 3500 in 2017, but due to some changes in the company’s financials, discontinuing a few models, and retooling a few of the plants, things were delayed. Let’s talk about what we saw on the prototype.
We were able to closely inspect this this Ram test truck and got a good look at a bulging hood addition grafted onto the front of the truck, which was covered by a camouflaging bra. The hood add-on is interesting, since GM’s recently updated HD pickups showcase a ram-air hood scoop that feeds as much as 60 percent of the cooling air to their trucks’ Duramax engine.
It’s clear that the bulge is something that is attached to the test Ram’s hood, and not smoothly sculpted in. “We’ve inspected the hood bulge by hand and, by all accounts, the feel and appearance of this hood seems to be a housing for an air scoop. When the truck is driving at speed, we witnessed the camouflage puff up, as some air manages to get underneath the camouflage. However, if it’s a functional air inlet, the camouflage makes no special provision to allow unobstructed air into the hood-mounted add-on,” (new.pickuptrucks.com). GM had tested its ram-air hood scoops for years before they went to production, and their camouflage always had an opening to let air pass through.
