New 1500

After receiving a host of awards, including being named the best full-sized pickup by Consumer Reports, the 2013 Ram 1500 is still going strong as Canada’s second-best selling vehicle. With so much to offer, it’s no wonder why the current-model Ram 1500 is so popular. Here at Knight Dodge in Swift Current, we are proud to offer the quality that Ram consistently delivers year after year, and we are very excited at what the future has in store with the release of the 2014 Ram 1500 on the horizon!

The 2013 Ram 1500 Offers Unprecedented Capability

  • Engine Options: Depending on what sort of performance and efficiency numbers you’re looking for, the 2013 Ram 1500 provides drivers with three different powertrains to choose from: a 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6, a HEMI VVT V8, and a 4.7L SOHC V8 16 valve.
  • Towing Capacity: When properly equipped, the 2013 Ram 1500 can tow up to 4,740 kg. Coupled with standard Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, and Electronic Stability Control, this truck is not only able to move large hauls with ease, it can do so with class-leading safety.
  • Handling: The available Active-Level 4-Corner Air Suspension uses air springs to raise and lower the vehicle body at all four corners of suspension. This system also automatically lowers the entire truck when at highway speeds in order to help reduce drag for increased fuel efficiency.

Segment First Diesel Engine to Appear in the 2014 Ram 1500 

There is a lot to look forward to with the upcoming release of the 2014 Ram 1500. Ram is currently the only brand to offer its half-ton lineup of trucks with a small-displacement diesel engine. The 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, developed and manufactured by VM Motori, will put out 240 hp and an intimidating 420 lb-ft. of maximum torque. This engine is also estimated to be more fuel efficient than its V6 and V8 gasoline counterparts.

The 3.6L Pentastar V6 will be making a return to the 2014 Ram 1500 as well. Voted one of the 10 best engines by Ward’s Automotive, the Pentastar V6 will be capable of 305 hp and 269 lb-ft. of torque upon its release.
