After drooling over the tow winches and cherry pickers at NTEA, truck guys will finally have the opportunity to pull the trigger on the chassis cab of their dreams. The first wave of Ram Chassis Cabs will touch down at dealerships in May 2010, bringing with them all of the best-in-class features you’ve been coveting for months. In addition to the 3500’s standard 5.7L HEMI® V8 cranking out a best-in-class 383-horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque, and the proven, commercial grade 6.7L Cummins diesel engine (available on 3500, standard on 4500/5500), the 2011 Ram Chassis Cabs also come equipped with best-in-class brake life provided by the largest brakes in the segment, best-in-class standard GVWR (19,500 lbs on Ram 5500), Best-in-class powertrain warranty: 5 years, 100,000 miles, and a class-exclusive manual transmission.
“With Ram Chassis Cabs on their way to dealerships across North America from our Saltillo Assembly Plant, Ram Truck customers now have a full line of vehicles available to meet their needs,” said Scott Garberding, Head of Manufacturing, Chrysler Group LLC. “The dedicated employees of the Saltillo plant have worked tirelessly to ensure that the highest quality vehicles come off the line. It is because of their efforts, along with those of the entire team, that the Ram Heavy Duty was named Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year.”
If you’re one of those work-hard, play-hard guys next in line to pick up a new Ram (no pun intended), be sure to stick around RamZone and keep an eye out for the exclusive opportunity to flex your specs.
