Today we bring you another edition of the Brandl Media Minute. Follow along with yours truly as I break down some of the awesome features of Ram‘s new offering in this week’s Brandl Media Minute. Today we’re working with a 2011 Ram C/V Cargo Van. That’s right, a minivan from Ram! This bad boy was known as the Dodge Grand Caravan C/V in a previous life, but with the split of Dodge and Ram, Ram apparently got the Cargo Van in the divorce.

New for 2011 is best in class towing, cargo payload, fuel range and more! One of the great new features is the easy load flat floor which has been upgraded over previous models. Check out one of our previous posts on the Ram C/V for more info.

Stay tuned because we will be doing more Brandl Media Minute Videos explaining more of the great things these vehicles can do! If you have any questions about how to operate your Keyless Enter and Go Passive Entry system, as well as your Uconnect or Media Center radio, or have suggestions on other topics we should cover, send me an email at LT@BrandlMotors.com

New for 2012, the Ram Cargo Van, or Ram C/V, benefits from more than 25 years of minivan engineering and the Ram Truck brand understands the versatility needs for both small and large businesses.

Ram Cargo Van features commercial-tuned ride and heavy-duty suspension offering maximum hauling capability. A heavy-duty radiator and heavy-duty transmission oil cooler help meet heavier powertrain demands. Ram C/V also is engineered with unique hydraulic power-assist rack-and-pinion steering, front anti-sway bar and rear twist-beam axle with coil springs. Ram C/V has a maximum Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of 8,750 lbs.

2012 Ram 5500 with Boxtruck Body Upfit

August 15th, 2011 | Ram Zone- Another year is halfway through, so here at the Ram Truck brand we’re thinking to the future. We’re excited about the changes we’re bringing to you for 2012 , but even more so, proud of the consistency that Chrysler Group LLC has been bringing to the table since 1925. Here’s a quick peek at our 2012 offerings. We know you’ll enjoy.

The biggest news for the 2012 model year lays with our HD HEMI-powered trucks which are now offered with a new six-speed automatic transmission. This new transmission, called the 66RFE, replaces the previous 545RFE gearbox, and comes standard with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 on all Ram 2500 models.

But that’s certainly not all – our Ram Chassis Cab trucks get upgrades and increased capabilities for the 2012 model year. Specifically, the GCWR has been increased to 30,000 lbs., the trucks have been designed with heavier payload towing in mind, and the best improvement of all—Ram trucks now provide a lower cost of ownership.

Also noteworthy are programmable options, allowing customers to select a maximum speed for the 2012 Ram Chassis Cab at no extra cost. Either the factory or the Ram Truck dealer can adjust the speed, with 55, 60, 65, 70 or 75 mph limits. The Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cab trucks, typically used as safety and rescue vehicles, have a standard 87 mph top speed. This is a great feature for those of you that have the occasional lead foot.
