Ram Trucks Command the Elements, Then and Now

Since the advent of paved roads, cities in the northern half of the United States have battled the same wintertime enemy: snow. Luckily for motorists, Ram Trucks have been there helping to clear the way for a generation. From the powerful and stylish Sno-Commander of 30 years ago to the Heavy Duty 2500 and 3500 plow and salt trucks of today, Ram has been clearing roads in the U.S. for decades.

This begs the question: What makes a great plow truck? In 1979, the Sno-Commander was the plow truck of choice. Upgraded springs and shocks, four-wheel drive, additional cooling, and beefed-up power and drivetrain made it the perfect choice for pushing snow.

Now, 30 years later, Ram Trucks are still clearing the way with awesome plow-prep packages for our Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks. The 2012 Ram Heavy Duty lineup comes with plenty of power, featuring the legendary 5.7L HEMI®, an engine that produces 383 HP and 400 lb-ft of torque. Pair the HEMI’s power with an available 4.10 axle ratio for increased pushing power, and moving snow should be no problem.

Moreover, it’s easy to keep an eye on transmission temperature with the included temperature display, located within the instrument cluster. And finally, the plush, comfortable interiors and available Uconnect system mean that the long hours plowmen spend behind the wheel can be enjoyable, not just tolerable.
