Enjoy Winter with the Ram 1500

December 16th, 2013 by

Winter may be long and cold here in Central Michigan, but there are many fun outdoor activities to take advantage of that make it an enjoyable season. From snowmobiling ton skiing, ice fishing to ice skating, there is no reason to not bundle up and get outside. The Ram 1500 makes it even easier to do so.

The 4-wheel drive systems available on the popular pickup are offered as on-demand with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 and 5.7-liter HEMI V8 and part-time with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and again, 5.7-liter HEMI V8. Both are more than capable of taming the snowiest of roads with the help of two-speed, electrically shifted transfer cases with four-wheel drive low/locked capabilities.

For the winter activities involving heavy equipment such as a snowmobile or an ice fishing hut, the 1500 is ready and able to get you out there. Every 1500 features four- and seven-pin trailer harness connectors and electronic trailer sway control. This is especially helpful for getting fishing huts to the lake on a windy day. The Ram 1500 also offers some of the highest tow ratings in its segment with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 capable of offering 7,450 pounds, the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 capable of up to 10,450 pounds and the new 3.0-liter turbo EcoDiesel, pulling 9,200 pounds.
