Ram Changes for the New Model Year

New Ram Trucks at All Star Dodge Ram near Ellisville

It’s the time of year that we start talking about the different changes that we are looking to see for the new model year. We are really excited about some of the different changes that we are hoping to see for the next model year – let’s take a look at those today!

The Ram 1500, Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s half-ton full-size pickup, receives a few changes though several models add standard equipment.

The Rebel gains the most features, including the Uconnect multimedia system with an 8.4-inch screen, automatic temperature control, limited-slip differential, security alarm, remote start, a premium gauge cluster with a 7-inch center display, a backup camera and rear parking sensors. The price rises accordingly: the two-wheel- drive Rebel increases $1,725 to $46,315 and the four-wheel-drive version is $1,895 more expensive at $48,415 (all prices include destination double check with the team at All Star for the most accurate price).

Other models get a handful of new standard features: The Sport adds remote start and an alarm; the Laramie Longhorn adds LED bed lighting, keyless entry with push-button start and rain-sensing wipers; and the Bighorn gets automatic temperature control.

“The Ram 1500 lineup encompasses a broad range of choices. It includes regular, Quad Cab (extended cab) and four-door crew-cab body styles. The regular cab is available with a 6.4- or 8-foot bed, the Quad Cab with the 6.4-foot bed and the crew cab with a 5.7- or 6.4-foot bed. Engine choices include a base 3.6-liter gas V-6, a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 and a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8. Ram differs from other half-ton pickups with its coil-spring rear suspension (instead of traditional leaf springs) and available four-corner air suspension, and it offers several clever and unique features such as the RamBox locking exterior storage and aluminum wheels with color inserts.”-news.pickuptrucks.com

Keeping Your Ram Prepared in the Winter Months

Scraping ice from the car windowBecause it’s possible that St. Louis will have three more weeks of wintery conditions, we want to issue a reminder that during the winter especially. you should always be prepared. Here are three items that you don’t want to leave home without:

First, grab an ice scraper with a snow brush. In a pinch a credit card will work as an ice scraper, but it sure won’t be a fun experience. But honestly, you’ll only want to do that once and from that moment on you’ll promise yourself that you will keep a real ice scarper on board. In foul weather, a stiff, heavy scraper with an attached snow brush at the other end is indispensable. Stow one away. You’ll always know that it’s there if you don’t let it leave the truck.

Getting halfway to your destination an realizing you have run out of windshield washer fluid is not only aggravation, it’s downright hazardous. Your windshield can quickly be clouded with salt, snow, and/or mud if you’re off-roading or plowing. You have many more important things to be worried about than wondering how much fluid you have left in your reservoir. By keeping an extra gallon in your RamBox you’ll have the peace of mind that you’ll have it if you need it.

One painful and certainly unpleasant task is scraping ice from your windows with your bare hands. Even a heated steering wheel won’t do you that much good when you’re scarping windows. One pair of gloves may get soak through quickly. Keep an extra pair in the glove box and let it hold up to it’s name! This way you’ll be sure that  your hands are always warm and dry. Keep an extra pair around year round, you never know when you will need them!

Knowing that your Ram is ready for anything is exactly what your Ram Dealer St. Louis wants for you!
