2011 Ram 1500 Express

July 18, 2011 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – U.S. News & World Report has named the 2011 Ram 1500 the best full-size pickup. In the magazine’s ranking of top vehicle choices, Ram 1500 scored the highest among the eight full-size pickups available to U.S. buyers.

The rankings are based on an in-depth analysis by U.S. News editors of all published vehicle ratings, reviews and test drives.

“This honor recognizes, in aggregate, the consistent, positive reactions we’ve been getting since we launched the current Ram 1500 model. In developing the Ram 1500, our team worked hard to understand what truck customers want. Ram Truck is committed to being the truck technology and innovation leader, and that commitment will guide us as we continue to improve what is already the most awarded Ram truck ever.”

-Fred Diaz, President and CEO
Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico

Ram drew praise for its interior comfort, class-leading handling and HEMI® V-8 performance.

“The 2011 Ram 1500’s smooth, car-like ride, well-designed and comfortable interior and powerful V-8 engines make it a top pick in its class,” said the U.S. News editors.

“When Ram’s designers updated the Ram 1500 for 2011, they managed to make improvements to an already-impressive truck,” the magazine went on to say. “The result is a full-size pickup truck that many in the auto press say is the best in its class.

““Reviewers love the Ram 1500’s ride, handling, power, and interior, even on less expensive trim levels. The Ram 1500 offers many convenient cargo solutions, such as storage cubbies underneath the rear seats on Crew Cab models. Other models offer the RamBox, lockable storage containers built into the truck bed above the wheel housings.”

The magazine cites other third-party accolades in naming the Ram 1500 the best full-size pickup:

“The Ram 1500‘s interior is as good as it gets in the pickup segment.” — Edmunds

“The available V-8s are impressive performers, the chassis is well suited to heavy work and the Ram‘s cabin is a class leader in terms of design, ergonomics and materials.” — Edmunds

Ram earns high marks for ride comfort, creative storage options, and abundant available power. Impressive cabin trappings are a nice bonus as well. Chevy, Ford, and Toyota loyalists would do well to have a look. You may well be won over by this Best Buy.” — Consumer Guide

“When towing various size trailers on a short loop, the HEMI-powered Ram acted as if nothing was attached to the rear. It just chugged along, getting up to 60 mph with ease, even with a 9,000-pound Air Stream attached on a simple hitch” — Detroit News

“There are lots of nooks and crannies (more than 40) to hold cell phones, gloves, tools, folders and just about anything else. There are even two floor storage bins that include removable containers for easy cleaning.” — Detroit News

“Storage spaces abound: under the rear seats; in the doors, the center console, and the dual glove boxes; and within the new drainable, lockable ‘RamBox‘ bins in the bed walls.” — Car and Driver

About Ram Truck Brand

The Ram Truck brand continues to establish its own identity and clearly define its customer.

As a stand-alone brand, Ram Truck is focused on truck customers – how they use their trucks and what features they’d like to see. Whether it’s a family that drives their half-ton Ram 1500 every day, a hard-working Ram Heavy Duty owner or a business that depends on its commercial vehicles without fail, Ram is going to be there for them.

For 2012, the Ram Truck brand increases the capabilities of its hardest-working trucks – the Ram 3500, 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cab trucks – and adds a new Ram Cargo Van, which expands Ram’s reach into the Class 1 segment.

Also for 2012, Ram 1500 – the most-awarded Ram truck ever – and Ram 2500 / 3500 Heavy Duty pickups get new safety, fuel efficiency and convenience features.

Ram Truck has emerged as a full-size truck leader by investing substantially in new products, infusing them with great looks, refined interiors, durable engines and features that further enhance their capabilities.

Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dealers were excited when Chrysler released photos last week of the all new 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible. The 200 Convertible offers consumers an open-air driving experience featuring elegant craftsmanship inside and out, a fun, yet refined driving experience, innovative technology, an abundance of standard safety features and an extraordinary level of standard content. The 2011 Chrysler 200 Convertible is an exciting alternative for customers who want the benefits of a coupe and the true open-air freedom of a convertible, all at a remarkable value.

Redesigned and re-engineered for 2011, the Chrysler 200 Convertible is unique in the standard specialty segment as a true mid-sized convertible that comfortably seats four adults and has ample room in the trunk, even when the power top is dropped. Consumers can choose from two automatically latching tops, a body-color painted steel, retractable hard top, or a cloth soft top, both of which can drop with the press of a button on the key fob.

Dealers are still anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 200 and 300, as most of the new vehicles from Chrysler Group have been arriving at Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dealers already.

The Dodge brand has undergone a lot of changes in the last year. Here’s what Red Letter Dodge had to say about it.

“It’s been a big year for Dodge As 2010 comes to a close, it’s all but impossible to keep from looking back on the year that was. Packed with new models, the departure of old friends and the birth of the all-new Dodge, something tells us that when we look back on our long history as one of the greatest American automakers out there, 2010 will stand out as one of the best years on record. We got out of the gate with a bang, by featuring two hilarious ads during the super bowl, introducing a new Dodge designed and built around living life to the fullest.

We didn’t stop there. After bidding our friends at Ram Trucks goodbye, we set about showing off a stack of brand-new and seriously refreshed models, starting with the muscular 2011 Dodge Durango. Packed with either our efficient 3.6-liter V6 or a powerful 5.7-liter V8 Hemi, the Durango blends the worlds of the SUV and the crossover without sacrificing towing capacity. As fitting with such a special vehicle, we skipped the traditional unveil stage in favor of something a little less conventional. The 2011 Dodge Durango was officially introduced to the world at this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll half Marathon at Virginia Beach, Virginia.

But the Durango wasn’t the only star of the show this year. We also brought the all-new 2011 Dodge Charger to the mid-sized fight. Our tough-as-nails sedan strutted its stuff in front of the power-hungry crowds at the SEMA show in Las Vegas with the Redline Concept alongside the Durango Citadel Black and Tan. Meanwhile, models like the 2011 Journey, Challenger, Avenger and Grand Caravan all took their respective bows to some serious media fanfare.

We were very, very busy bees this year, but we played as hard as we worked. We decided to mark the end of Viper production with a bare-knuckle one-make race series populated by our spec Viper ACRX. The Viper Cup saw enthusiasts and race-hardened veterans alike go fender-to-fender with each other on some of the most challenging racetracks our country has to offer, and it served up some great racing action. Meanwhile, around 350 Vipers met up for this year’s Viper Owners International show. A handful of lucky owners even got a hint at what’s coming down the line for the next-generation Viper.

Dodge wouldn’t be Dodge if the Viper Cup was the only time we hit the racetrack, though. We also unveiled our Nationwide Series Dodge Challenger this year at the Daytona Coke Zero 400, where the car started its march towards a series championship for Brad Keselowski. It couldn’t have gotten much better than that if we’d ordered it up from a catalog.

There’s no denying that this was a year packed with changes for Dodge, but we love where we’re headed. Each day brings new opportunities for us to show you exactly what we’re made of, and models like the all-new 2011 Durango and 2011 Charger are proof-positive that we’re forged from the best this country has to offer.”

“We’re the new DODGE

and we’re here to stay.”

According to the latest report, Chrysler Group no longer be selling the Journey as a Dodge, but as a  Fiat-branded model known as the Freemont by June of 2011, says Automotive News. The Freemont, according to AN’s sources, will recieve a minor cosmetic overhaul inside and out to give the crossover a unique appeal, as well as adjustments to the vehicle’s suspension in order to better match European tastes.

Of course, a diesel powertrain will also make its way into the Freemont, but this time the 2.0-liter diesel will be Fiat’s own 170 horsepower unit, rather than the 140 horsepower 2.0-liter unit currently being sourced from Volkswagen for the Dodge Journey.

I’m sure they will release more details soon! Click on any of the pictures below to see more photos of the 2011 Dodge Journey.

The 300 is designed to deliver “the distinction, innovation and premium large sedan features at a legendary value, while setting a new course for the American brand.”

Highlights include:

  • An all-new grille featuring seven deeply sculpted horizontal blades that express precision.
  • Illuminating the road ahead are signature “key slot” headlamps with a scalloped lower edge.
  • The profile of the Chrysler 300 features the distinctive proportions of its predecessor with added design refinement for a more tailored appearance. Dramatic front-fender forms rise above the sculpted hood and are echoed by rear-quarter forms which rise above the deck lid and travel down the vertical taillamps for an unmistakably bold signature silhouette.
  • The windshield has been raked back 3 inches, while rolled-framed doors with thinner pillars improve outward visibility by 15 percent.
  • A new dual-pane panoramic sunroof provides passengers twice the outward visibility of a standard sunroof.
  • For a more contemporary appearance, the 2011 Chrysler 300 features a clean bodyside with a distinct windswept A-line that emphasizes the sedan’s long wheelbase and spacious cabin.
  • Elevating the all-new Chrysler 300’s presence from the rear, the deck lid now incorporates a lip spoiler while the new Chrysler wing badge is proudly centered below.
  • Jeweled-like rear taillamps feature harmonious LED illumination, while signature “light pipes” illuminate for an alluring nighttime appearance.
  • Substantial interior upgrades on the all-new Chrysler 300 include soft touch materials, premium interior trim, available heated and ventilated Nappa leather seats, and real wood appliques on the instrument panel, doors, center console and steering wheel.
  • With its massive 8.4-inch Uconnect® Touch infotainment center, the all-new Chrysler 300 sedans feature the segment’s largest standard touchscreen display, integrating world-class infotainment and convenience technologies to keep passengers connected, comfortable and secure.

So there you have it, Chrysler says they should be showing up anytime in January, though they’re not offering a specific arrival date. Check out some of the new pictures of the 300 by clicking one of the images below to see more. Thanks for checking us out!
