Ram has announced a series of updates to its rugged lineup of pickups. The biggest change is the addition of the 1500 Tradesman Heavy Duty, which combines all of the excellent value of the standard Tradesman, but adds three-quarter-ton towing and cargo capacity as well.
The Tradesman HD is capable of towing 11,500 pounds, which beats the Ford F-150 by 200 pounds and the Chevrolet Silverado by 800 pounds. Equally impressive is the truck’s 3,100 pound payload capacity, which exceeds the F-150 by 40 pounds and the Silverado by 1,235 pounds.
“The Ram 1500 Tradesman Heavy Duty is a job-rated truck with the features commercial truck buyers want at a price they can afford,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC. “The commercial truck segment is all about total cost of ownership and that includes being able to tow and haul more. It’s a simple matter of economics. More towing and payload means fewer loads. And fewer loads mean lower fuel bills.”
According to NY RV Dealers, aside from the Tradesman HD’s arrival, Ram has also updated the 1500 Express. Buyers can now get a Crew Cab or Quad Cab for the first time. The 1500 Express Crew Cab starts at $28,050 while the Quad Cab can be had for $30,010.
Ram also announced that the popular Rambox system is now able to accommodate 6-foot, 4-inch bed lengths. For more information, visit Bellingham WA Car Dealerships or a dealer near you.
