The 2013 Ram 1500 at Ram dealer
serving Marietta, Landmark Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, provides drivers with options, making it a top choice for a variety of truck shoppers. A V-6 powered SLT engine provides a great option for shoppers seeking efficiency and luxury in their pickup. The V-8 powered Sport engine provides a more powerful and performance centered 1500. The Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 offers 42 percent more horsepower and 13 percent more torque. The available 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 has been updated for 2013 with variable valve timing.
Of the V-6 powered engine, Motor Trend says, “Our judges were blown away by the smooth, quiet driving experience…The Pentastar even sounds good for a V-6, and the combination of engine and transmission makes for a surprisingly good entry-level truck.” Reaching 269 lb-ft of torque and 305 hp the V-6 is a respectable option. Meanwhile, the V-8 Sport provides a stunning 407 lb-ft of torque and 395 hp for a significantly faster and more powerful experience.
2013 Ram 1500 Earns Truck of the Year Award
The 2013 Ram 1500
has been upgraded with the addition of air suspension. Modern air springs use materials that are resistant to tearing and puncture, and are commonly used on modern luxury cars, which tend to weigh close to smaller trucks. Air suspension also helps to improve aerodynamics, which in turn improves efficiency.
The pickup truck’s interior has also received a ton of attention, with a spotlight on new technology features. Chrysler’s Uconnect system is included and the main infotainment screen now measures 8.4 inches. Drivers can upgrade the system with apps, and it can provide an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot.
