Now is one of the best times to come in and test drive Dodges current selection of Ram pickup trucks at Ingram Park Chrysler Jeep Dodge, the #1 Dodge dealer in the San Antonio area. Ram trucks are known to be tough and dependable. The market for this type of vehicle is always competitive, but Dodge seems to always stand out above the rest. They continually listen to their customers and give them what they want; recent examples include the newest models of Rams available called the Outdoorsman and Laramie Longhorn Edition.
Nothing compares to the Ram Outdoorsman if you are an avid hunter or spend a lot of time outdoors. The addition of lockable RamBox storage located in the trucks bed is ideal for hunters and fishermen. Multi-link rear coil suspension comes standard and will provide all occupants with a comfortable ride that is efficient at cornering. According to Ronnie Cuz Strickland of Mossy Oak, Until now, no truck brand has stepped up to say we get it, we do it, so well build it. My hat is off to Ram for honestly addressing outdoorsmen with the Outdoorsman, and for having thinking, outdoor people design the features. It makes me feel like someone is listening. Heck, give em all a raise.
Along with the Outdoorsman, Dodge has also added the Longhorn Edition to their line of Rams. First debuting at the 2014 Texas State Fair, the interior is where it stands out from most other pickups. It is furnished in full leather and has real wood grain trim all through the vehicle. Even the map pockets behind the front seats have the look of a saddle bag. The Longhorn edition won the highly coveted Truck of Texas award in 2014. Michael Herzing, President of Texas Auto Writers Association, had this to say about the Laramie Longhorn:
Some of the added touches like the leather saddle bags and other Southwest details are uniquely Texan but appeal to everyone. Youve got to love how tough it is and how comfortable it is, especially if youre in a truck all day, like many Texans.
In addition to giving consumers what they want, Dodge Rams continue to be one of the best trucks for working outdoors. Their partnership with Switch-N-Go has enabled them to develop a system to change out truck bodies that is easily mounted on the frame of the pickup. At the 2014 SEMA Show, the Ram was able to show off its customizability by equipping the trucks with Vanair systems, mobile oil change systems, and custom made racks.
Dodges commitment to listening to their customers and improving their vehicles is second to none. This is apparent in their line of Ram pickup trucks. Ingram Park Chrysler Dodge Jeep, the leading Dodge dealership in the San Antonio area, currently offers the full line of Dodge Rams, and is committed to finding the right Dodge vehicle for drivers.
