2016 Ram 1500

Indian Head and Melville drivers won’t be surprised to hear that Popular Mechanics named Ram the Best Truck Lineup in their Automotive Excellence Awards. Whether drivers are looking for class-leading fuel economy, heavy-duty performance, best-in-class features, or segment-exclusive engineering breakthroughs, Ram can accommodate, and industry experts have taken note.

The Popular Mechanics’ Automotive Excellence Awards

Each year, the people at Popular Mechanics visit numerous factories, interview a whole host of engineers, and take hundreds upon hundreds of vehicles out for at least one test drive.

They do that in order to ensure that drivers from Indian Head, Melville, and all across Canada can identify the very best, and they have just released their standout vehicles for 2016. At the end of the day, Ram easily led the trucking segment. In their own words: “Top to bottom, this is the model to beat.”

The Ram Difference

Plenty of superior ratings and technologies elevate Ram trucks above the ordinary. Here are just a few of the advantages that were focused on by the team over at Popular Mechanics.

  • Eight-Speed Transmission: Ram is the only pickup line to offer a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Its small gear steps ensure capable handling and a smooth ride.
  • Industry-Exclusive Air Suspension: A coil-spring rear-end suspension already separates Ram from the pack, but the air-lift suspension kit can take you even further, and even lowers automatically to improve fuel economy at highway speeds.
  • Engine Options: Ram has really changed the market when it comes to power. Even the 2016 Ram 1500 is available with EcoDiesel power; in fact, it’s the only light truck on the market to offer it. Both the 2016 Ram 2500 and the 2016 Ram 3500 are available with a 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6 that can command up to a best-in-class 900 lb-ft of torque. Alternatively, you can go for the 6.4L HEMI V8 — the most powerful gas engine in its class.
