Ram Truck brand brings you the new 2013 Ram 1500 as its latest entry into the full-size and light-duty pickup truck segment. This new truck represents Ram’s first reinvention or first new version of its most recognized truck ever since it came up with the Ram nameplate in 2011.
According to Fred Diaz, Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico - Chrysler Group LLC President and CEO, what began as little changes to the Ram 1500 have quickly rolled into making it a best-in-class capability and best-in-class fuel economy gem. He says that customers will experience a completely new truck with features and with technologies that are not offered anywhere else.
The 2013 Ram 1500 is the latest improvement or innovation applied to the brand’s full-size, body-on-frame truck architecture, which was engineered, designed, and executed in order to appeal to the emotions of potential buyers and enthusiasts who have the “Guts and Glory” mindset. Unlike no other truck in its class, the new Ram 1500 conveys valor, boldness, power, and virtue in form, function, and aesthetics.
With the 2013 Ram 1500, the full-size, light-duty pickup truck segment evolved from acceptable efficiency and brute capability to an engineering that combines desirable quality size, capability, configurations, refinement, technology, efficiency, and quality.
What’s more, the 2013 Ram 1500 offers the most fuel efficiency in its class, as well as more available innovative, interactive, and functional technologies than its competing brands. This new truck will have equal or even better capability and quality validation than any other vehicle in its class.
