A great example is the manufacturer every time Dodge has some larger vehicles. Now comes the new Ram 1500, an impressive pickup has some giant steps, and a large number of improvements over the predecessor version.

The Dodge Ram 1500 is a model that is sweeping the United States but also wants to convince the public of Europe and that is why the manufacturer is starring specials to facilitate the importation of the model, since it is a vehicle I have yet to be manufactured in our territory. Thus, Europeans wanting to enjoy a great truck with off-road capabilities, find their way a little easier.

What at first was to represent a few minor tweaks to improve the previous version of the Dodge Ram, has become an entirely renovated, with great additions and increased capabilities through the progression of the manufacturer. As we indicated from Dodge, is a model made especially for Americans but with qualities sufficient to convince Europe.

Engines and performance
it’s good that there are these vehicles, given their large size can do much, but it must also have a powerful engine. Dodge has focused on getting good performance.

This has been made for the one hand, with a V6 engine Pentastar 3.6 l able to develop a power 309CV. It becomes more efficient V6 engine, achieving three seconds reducing the acceleration time from 0 to 100 km / h over the previous model.

But he has also used a new 5.7 l HEMI V8 engine with an output of 400hp, showing similar performance to the new Ford F-150. Also prominent in this case it’s better performance and improved efficiency.

Whichever engine you choose, we always have an automatic transmission to ensure the highest mechanical assembly operation at all times.

The Dodge Ram 1500 is the smaller version of the Ram range, though still far exceeds the size of any European or Asian pickup. He meets a large number of competitors like the Toyota Hilux 2012, showing a more aggressive approach. But there is none that has as high a performance at a price so affordable. In the U.S. the price of the Ram 1500 is around $ 21,000, in case you want to buy one, the price would not reach 30,000 euros, including imports from North America.
