5 Ways Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension Goes to Work

The 2016 Ram 1500 is ready to carry the load with class-exclusive available Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension*. This engineering feat delivers five distinctive operational modes, with individual control at all four corners resulting in an overall superior ride, no matter what you’re carrying in the truck bed. The automatic load leveling is designed to maintain a horizontal plane under heavy payloads, and to help improve capability and maintain exceptional performance.

air-supsensoins

Adjustable air springs allow drivers to raise and lower the vehicle to one of five ride height settings, depending on where you’re working or how you’re playing. In addition, the constant driving profile delivers a proper headlamp-to-road angle for consistently even forward illumination. All of this can be easily controlled with your fingertips using convenient dashboard buttons.

Here are five modes you can take advantage of when you need to move weight down the road:

  1. TAKING TO THE TRAILS

Off-Road 2 mode provides impressive ground clearance for the path and trail and generous angles for approach, departure and breakover. The difference from normal is +2.0 inches.

  1. OFF THE BEATEN PATH

Enjoy outstanding ride balance with Off-Road 1 mode, with an extra degree of clearance when off-road scenarios are less severe than those that warrant Off-Road 2 mode. The difference from normal is +1.2 inches front and +0.9 inches rear.

  1. GETTING AROUND TOWN

Normal Ride Height is the most comfortable balance of ride and handling for everyday driving.

  1. HIGHWAY DRIVING

At highway speeds, Aero mode automatically lowers the vehicle, reducing aerodynamic drag and “body roll,” and measurably improving fuel efficiency. The difference from normal is -0.6 inches.

  1. DAILY INS AND OUTS

For convenience and comfort, Entry/Exit mode automatically lowers the vehicle, making it easier to get in and out of your truck, load your bed or hook up your trailer. This mode is manually controlled by the internal button bank or remotely with the key fob. The difference from normal is -2.1 inches front and -1.7 inches rear.

Big News from Ram Trucks

It’s safe to say your favorite trucks just got even better.

ram_tx-state-fair-2016-15-of-91Everything is bigger in Texas – which is why we made several exciting Ram Truck product announcements this morning at the State Fair of Texas.

It all started a few weeks ago when we revealed the new special-edition 2017 Ram 1500 Night Package — an appearance package that dominates the blacktop while giving truck fans the straight-from-the-factory customized, bold style they’ve been asking for.

The excitement continued this morning in Dallas – where several other Ram Brand product reveals were underway live from the State Fair of Texas. Here’s everything you need to know about this morning’s announcements:

 

The Ram Limitedram_tx-state-fair-2016-8-of-91

The Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups with the premium Limited trim can now be ordered with black RAM tailgate letters on Brilliant Black and Granite Crystal Metallic exteriors for a monochromatic appearance.

 

The Ram Laramie Longhorn

For 2017, the Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 Laramie Longhorn models will be updated with a new front-end look. This will include an available bright chrome billet port grille option with RAM lettering and chrome belt moldings.

Also new for the Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty Laramie, Longhorn and Limited models is the 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 as standard equipment.

 

Introducing: The 2017 Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver Edition

ram_tx-state-fair-2016-82-of-91One out of every five Ram trucks is sold in Texas. From half-tons to diesel duallys, it seems everyone in Texas has a truck … which is why we’re excited to bring you another Texas-only model: the 2017 Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver Edition.

One of the most visible changes is a new Lone Star grille badge made of milled and polished aluminum.

ram_tx-state-fair-2016-54-of-91The 2017 Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver Edition has chrome and bright work in all the right places. From the grille, to the side-view mirrors, to the polished 20-inch wheels and front tow hooks, this truck is bred to work hard and look good doing it.

The interior of the Lone Star Silver Edition offers high-back, cloth front bucket seats in choice of two color combinations: Canyon Brown/Light Frost Beige or Black/Diesel Gray.

The 2017 Lone Star Silver Edition is available on Ram 1500 Crew Cab models with either two- or four-wheel drive. You have the option to choose either the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, the 5.7-liter HEMI V8, or the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel powertrain option with class-leading fuel efficiency.*

Introducing: The Ram Rebel TRX Concept

We saved the best for last. Ram engineers got the chance to let their imaginations run wild and created a rocket-fast off-road concept truck – and it’s safe to say that they nailed it.

ram_tx-state-fair-2016-55-of-91Introducing the Ram Rebel TRX Concept truck, the ultimate off-road machine.

This is a ground-stomping, functional concept for aggressive, high-speed off-road use – the most powerful factory-engineered half-ton pickup ever. It’s purposefully built to handle harsh terrain at speeds greater than 100 mph.

ram_tx-state-fair-2016-81-of-91Here’s the breakdown:

  • 575 horsepower
  • 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8
  • 15-inch front and 14-inch rear, slotted, drilled brakes
  • 6-piston calipers
  • 37-inch tires
  • Over 13 inches of front and rear wheel travel

ram_tx-state-fair-2016-61-of-91The Rebel TRX concept is six inches wider than a standard Ram Rebel. The chiseled front end, with its all-new front grille and bumper, is based on the Rebel and provides additional airflow to cool the supercharged V8 engine.

As far as the interior goes, engineers intentionally removed hard points inside the cockpit, and included a padded TRX instrument panel. We added six-point harnesses to the front seats and side bolsters to help keep thrill seekers from sliding around.

There you have it, the Ram Rebel TRX Concept – the ultimate off-road machine.

Stay tuned for more exciting coverage and content from all of today’s announcements. We’re just getting started.
