If you’ve wanted to live in the future, you don’t have to wait around anymore. That’s because the future is here. It wasn’t too long ago that there was no such thing as having a radio with a screen, much less a touchscreen, in a vehicle. The idea of a 12-inch touchscreen being apart of the dashboard all the way down to the cup holder space would have seemed impossible to imagine just a decade ago.

Recently, FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne announced FCA’s five year plan to increase its focus on the light duty pickup truck market, most notably showcasing the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 and its use of the eTorque system. With a focus on innovation, Ram has provided accommodations and luxury like never before, combined with the strength this current Ram light duty pickup model possesses.

The sleekest truck is the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited Edition. Starting at an MSRP of $55,485 (plus destination), the all-new Ram 1500 Limited Edition has a mesh grille, stylish chrome accents and advanced technology. The combination of luxury and power is showcased in the real wood accents and heated rear seats, as well as the incredible 12-inch touchscreen.

All-New 2019 Ram 1500 Horsepower

As for overall strength? The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 truck has long since established its dominance in the light pick up truck market. This version of the Ram 1500 has been considered a favorite amongst fans and critics since being introduced earlier this year. For many reasons other than what most owners will love it for most; pure power. Like the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine, able to generate 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of to work, the latest Ram 1500 is capable of providing more horsepower than the 2019 Toyota Tundra as well as the newly introduced 2019 Honda Ridgeline.

With 12,750 pounds of best-in-class V8 maximum towing capacity, the new Ram 1500 has superior towing capabilities in comparison to the 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 and 2019 Honda Ridgeline as well. The competition doesn’t provide the same power as what you’ll find behind the wheel of the latest all-new 2019 Ram 1500.

Not Just Strong, Gorgeous Inside and out

Looking for more reasons to love the Ram 1500? The future of Ram means more leather than ever before. The truck has 58 percent more leather than Ford’s F-150 Platinum and the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country. The look and feel of the Ram 1500 Limited trim is elegant and provides drivers with a premium experience from the metal-inlaid Limited badge that adds a distinctive style outside to match the elegance that extends out to the power running boards that allow easy access every time you enter or exit the vehicle every time. With luxurious and comfortable seating for six passengers, there’s no doubt your passengers will appreciate the look and feel of your 2019 Ram 1500 Limited truck.

Innovation Within the 2019 Ram 1500

The 2019 Ram 1500 Limited is 225 pounds lighter than the previous model year, with Ram planning to build their pickups with precision and attention to detail like never before. The eTorque system is a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that was added to the 2019 Ram 1500 to provide additional torque in both powertrains (the V6 and V8) and increases fuel economy by ten percent, offering much better fuel efficiency for a modern pickup truck, such as the 2018 Ram 1500 pickup. The future of the Ram pickup can be in your hands and should be!

Rising Gas Prices and What You Can Do To Save Money

Kendall-Dodge-Save-Gas

Worried about our nation’s rising gas prices? Who isn’t?! There’s no doubt that having a vehicle with great gas mileage matters now more than ever. If you’re currently driving a Hummer or large SUV and don’t want to put up with such a large and difficult gas guzzling machine, we have good news; you don’t have to!

Let us show you vehicles that can help you save with a new vehicle or at least set you up with tips that can remind you of ways you can conserve gasoline.

Many Ways to Save

First tip. If you’re waiting for longer than a minute before you are able to move forward, turn off your engine. That’s the rule of thumb when it comes to saving gas. Engines burn fuel even when the vehicle isn’t moving.

Second tip. Know where you’re headed. It’s better to pull off to the side of the road to figure out the right way to go, rather than trying to look at your phone or navigation. And if you’re heading somewhere and don’t have the address or exact location, find a place to park and turn off your vehicle before you find out where to head. Not only is it safer to pull over before looking at your phone for directions, but it will also save gas if you go the right way from the beginning.

Third tip. Don’t go. Just don’t do what you think you have to do if it involves driving. Maybe you can save some money by not spending your gas and do something else instead.

Fourth tip. Fill up before your tank is nearly empty! Every day there’s someone that runs out of gas. Don’t let that be you. Save gas by avoiding the need to go out of your way to find a gas station when you’re on empty.

Fifth tip. Don’t ever get gas from a station near any major highways or roads. You might not spot the difference of gas prices from one station compared to another and if that’s you, boom! You have a new way to save. Your local gas station might not be the cheapest in your area. Find which station near you offers the best prices and make sure to always go there instead of not paying attention to the money you’re spending on gasoline. A little goes a long way.

Sixth tip. You’re probably in a rush when you get in your vehicle. Speeding is not only risky, but it also speeds up how fast you burn through your gasoline and money. Don’t rush and burn your oil and gas by having a lead foot. If you’re one of those that can’t stay still and go faster than the speed limit everywhere you go, track your gas mileage on your daily routine between fill ups then track how much longer you’re able to drive if you go 10 mph or more less to places.

We Have Other Options

Let’s face it, while those tips are useful, you might need to upgrade your current vehicle to a vehicle that offers a better fuel economy. With summer vacation starting, your upcoming road trips could end up being a burden in the wrong vehicle. Let us help you find a vehicle that makes your life easier and your wallet safe from overspending on gas.

If you have a family vehicle that doesn’t beat 28 mpg on the highway, then maybe consider upgrading to the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, named America’s “Family Car of the Year” by Cars.com for the second year in a row. You can test drive one with us today.

If you’re looking for a vehicle that saves you money and can possibly provide you with a better MPG average than what you currently drive, we have over 100 pre-owned vehicles that might do just that for you. We’ll be happy to assist you in trading in, selling or buying any of them.

Let our friendly and knowledgeable staff accomodate you on a test drive today. We look forward to helping you save money and drive away happy at Kendall Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram.

Why the 2019 Ram 1500 Is The New Standard For Pickups

2019-Ram-1500-Kendall-Dodge-New

Have you seen the latest 2019 Ram 1500? Do yourself a favor and see first hand the craftsmanship of the Ram brand’s greatest pickup yet. This isn’t just Ram’s greatest work, but it’s one of the best trucks in the entire industry. One particular star on the 2019 Ram 1500 lineup is the base trim, the Tradesman.

“Ram launched the original Tradesman model in 2011, and our work truck customers have enjoyed Ram’s benchmark durability ever since,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand — FCA. “Ram has the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton truck and the Ram 1500 Tradesman model will continue to deliver confidence for hard-working people who rely on it every day.”

There’s no mistaking the unique features that separate the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 from other trucks on the road. The truck has a segment-exclusive multi-link rear coil suspension that supplies best-in-class ride and handling qualities thanks to the ability to absorb bumps and impacts, while drastically reducing the amount of friction in the spring system. And the best part? With a maximum towing capacity of up to 12,750 pounds, you can haul what you need.

The Ram 1500 Tradesman which starts at $31,695 MSRP (plus destination fee) is quite a truck. But, if it doesn’t have the bells and whistles you are looking for, perhaps you’ll find greater comfort in one of the higher trim levels. Autoblog editor’s chose the 2019 Ram 1500 to be number one at the Detroit Auto Show for good reason, not the least of which is the industry-first 12-inch infotainment touchscreen, available in all trims from the Laramie trim up through the Limited trims.

Tell Us More About This Interior

The 12-inch touchscreen that’s enveloped in the dashboard can display a variety of apps and driving information. The touchscreen can also be synced up with Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, so drivers have direct access to their phone without looking at their phone.  Users just simply connect their device once and the highly responsive touchscreen will be your guide for many purposes on your drives. The 12-inch screen is available as a split screen, which makes it possible for drivers to see navigation directions and adjust the channel on SiriusXM radio at the same time.

The fourth generation Uconnect system works seamlessly and supplies drivers with quick access to features like climate and seat temperature controls, satellite radio and more. And what could go better than going all out with the available 900-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon sound system? This sound system is another of the real treats in owning the higher trims that include this phenomenal sound experience.

Nice Interior and Solid Fuel Economy?

From a lush interior to the ability to handle hard jobs and long distance travels, there’s a mix of new age features and technologies that consumers will love. With the additional comforts and support that drivers can embrace, there’s no denying that the latest Ram 1500 has many perks. A reduced overall weight provides a highway fuel economy of 22 mpg with the included eTorque 48-volt mild-hybrid system technology standard for the 3.6-liter Pentastar engine and optional for the 5.7-liter HEMI engine.

Ram was able to shed 220 pounds on the Ram 1500 by using light weight aluminum rather than steel for various components. However, high-strength steel was used on the new frame which also helped cut weight. The loss in weight actually increased towing capacity for the new design. These are some of the many reasons the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is the new standard for pickups.

2018 Ram 2500 Power Wagon – Off-Road Features Galore

Ram-2500-Kendall-Dodge

The 2018 Ram 2500 has more to offer than just fantastic towing capabilities and a wide bed for hauling cargo. Rather than focus on just the ability the do heavy lifting (Ram 2500 has 410 horsepower), let’s take a moment to look at the adventurous side and off-road capabilities that are possible in a 2018 Ram 2500 Power Wagon.

Experience Top-of-the-Line Suspension

What makes the Ram 2500 off-road capable? The standaard Five-Link Coil Rear Suspension provides the ability to handle any rocky terrain. Utilizing proprietary spring technology helps reduce overall friction in the system without sacrificing heavy-duty towing capability. This means that drivers will experience sharp turning abilities and a steady ride regardless of the driving surface.

The available class-exclusive Rear Auto-Level Air Suspension ensures level loads no matter the cargo or terrain. With a push of a button, any driver can select from two smart ride height selection, Normal or Alternate Ride Height to maintain a level load. This means you can handle the road ahead, regardless of the bumps along the way.

The Technology to Go Anywhere

The Ram 2500 Power Wagon is known as the “Most Capable Off-Road Full-Size Pickup” and for good reason. The 2500 Power Wagon is equipped with an electronically disconnecting front stabilizer bar, electronically locking front and rear axles and 33-inch Goodyear all-terrain tires. Bilstein Gas-Charged Monotube Shocks absorb any rough path you adventure on in your Ram 2500 Power Wagon.

The Ram 2500 Power Wagon comes standard with skid plates to protect some of the vehicle’s most important components. The standard fuel tank skid plate shield protects the fuel tank and the transfer case skid plate protects the transfer case, an essential part of the 4×4 system, from rocks or any other objects that could be hard to see when driving off-road.

Uniquely Strong Powertrains

The 2018 Ram 2500 has several engine options that separate this truck from others due to sheer power and strength. The proven 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 engine produces up to 800 lb-ft of torque. Off-road excellence is delivered with a strong engine capable of pushing you over any inclines, steep trails and through to where you need to go. 370 horsepower is produced by this immensely strong engine that provides a maximum towing capacity of 17,890 pounds.

The available legendary heavy-duty 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine with best-in-class 410 horsepower allows drivers to feel completely assured when heading out on an off-road adventure. The Ram 2500 produces 429 lb-ft of torque and its best-in-class 16,320-pound towing capacity and also has two spark plugs per cylinder that increase peak power, while reducing exhaust emissions. The result is a remarkable choice for any owner to have under the hood.

Check Out the New 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel

2019-Ram-Rebel-1500

The 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel Overview

Ram has been pretty busy with the 2019 Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck, and its off-road capabilities are pretty big news and impressive.

Starting at $31,695 (plus destination fee) the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel is in between the Ram 1500 Laramie and Longhorn price point. The memorable RAM grille and specific 18-inch aluminum wheels were increased for the 2019 model, up from 17-inch the previous year.

Drive Anywhere You Choose

The off-road capabilities of the 2019 Ram 1500 provides an off-road package available to nearly every trim of the light duty pickup truck, including the Ram 1500 Rebel. This 2019 package adds four-corner air suspension and a front and rear stabilizer bar, a one-inch suspension lift, an electronic-locking rear differential, 32-inch on/off-road tires on (standard) 18-inch wheels (20-inch wheels available) to provide additional grip, robust skid plate protection (transfer case, steering, engine and gas tank), tow hooks, and hill-descent control for added off-road capability. In addition, the transfer cases have also been upgraded with standard BorgWarner 48-12 for part-time 4WD operation with Hi and Low ranges and the BorgWarner 48-11 for on-demand 4WD included in the available 2019 Ram 1500 4×4 package.

Off-Road, You Ask?

The new 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel has some additional off-road features. A capable off-road vehicle has proper off-road tires and the new 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel includes 18-inch wheels with 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires driven by an electronic-locking rear differential. Standard with coil spring suspension, a one-inch factory lift, and designed Bilstein shocks. Ram’s active-level four-corner air suspension is an available add-on for the Ram 1500 Rebel, standard in the new off-road package. The Ram 1500 Rebel is also now available in both quad-cab and crew-cab configurations as a result of the beefed-up frame on the new 2019 Ram 1500.

Driving a 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel provides exceptional off-road capabilities as it was built with suspension articulation, steep landscape climbing prowess, and can handle any terrain you take it out on. Place the transfer case into 4WD Low, and the 2019 Ram Rebel can work through even the most demanding course without much trouble.

Strong HEMI Powertrain

The strength of the 2019 Ram Rebel pickup is found in the powerful 395-hp HEMI V8 engine. Drivers will embrace the performance of the vehicle as no bumpy road or steep path will be too much to handle. Another perk of having a strong off-road capable vehicle, like the Ram 1500 Rebel, is the ability to go rock crawling; driving through rocky terrain comfortably is possible thanks to the active-level four-corner suspension and capable engine power included.

A trademark of the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel is its coilover suspension, with or without an optional enhanced air suspension. Although it may make sense with other trims with the 4×4 off-road package to get air suspension, the 2019 Ram Rebel is more sure-footed on rocky terrain than most pickup trucks in its class. With the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel can go from doing any heavy lifting as well as offroading. From a comfortable and durable ride to the vehicle you can use for both work and play, there’s not much else to consider if you’re looking for a capable truck.

It’s National Car Care Month, Show Your Ram Truck Some Love

National-Car-Truck-Care-Month-Keep-Your-Truck-Clean

April is #NationalCarCare month. National Car Care month was Created by the Car Care Council to remind drivers to do a semi-annual car care inspection, which comes just in time for this summer’s planned road trips. So, when’s the last time you showed a little love to your truck? If it’s been awhile, here are some things you should do to keep your truck in tip top shape.

Detailing

Detailing is a great way to keep your car’s exterior and interior looking great even as it ages. While you should routinely clean the exterior and interior of your car on your own, detailing is beneficial because it takes care of the little things you may not notice for yourself. There are different levels of detailing, and if you can afford one of the more expensive services, do it. Different aspects of detailing include buffing out scratches, cleaning upholstery and carpets, using protective products on the interior and exterior surfaces.

Vehicle Inspection

Do more than just get an oil change the next time you bring your vehicle in for an oil change and  pay to get it thoroughly looked at by a mechanic. Thorough inspections can help identify future problems before they become big problems. This will allow you the time to save up money to pay for the work you need to get done, as well as schedule an appointment and plan for optional transportation if your car will be in the shop for more than a day.

Invest a Little Bit

This is a great time to think about any of the little changes or buy accessories that might make your driving experience more pleasurable. Does sitting down on your leather seats burn the back of your legs after the car has been roasting outside all day? Maybe get some seat covers. Would you be a safer driver if you had a mount for your cellphone while you are driving? Want to get a backup camera installed? There are probably a lot of little things you could do to improve your car and make you want to keep it forever.

Glove Compartment

A lot of people get in the habit of storing all of their receipts in their glove compartment and after too long it just turns into an organized mess. Take the time to go through and organize the receipts you want to keep and throw away the ones you don’t need. You should also check to make sure that your glove compartment has easy access to all of the important and required documents you need in case you get pulled over or you get into an accident.

Ram Packages Add Features and Comfort to Trims

new-ram-2500-sport-appearance-package-kendall-ram

Ram is a great brand for people in search of a truck that is more than just a truck for work. Ram trucks are available in a number of configurations, trims, colors, and there are a large amount of standard and available features.

One way for buyers to easily ensure their Ram pickup truck will have the features they want is to select one or more of the available groups or packages. The Ram 1500, Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 are all available with more than a dozen groups or packages and they range from appearance packages that give a truck a particular look, to interior packages that include select interior features or packages that offer a mix of interior and exterior features. Here’s a look at three of the most popular group packages offered on the Ram 2500.

Luxury Group

Available on any configuration of the Ram 2500 SLT, Lone Star, Big Horn and Power Wagon trims

The luxury trims on the Ram 2500 include the Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited, but not every buyer wants to be limited to one of those trims, so Ram introduced the Luxury Group to give buyers luxury features on luxury trims.

The Luxury Group includes a lot of convenience features that make everyday life a little easier. The vehicle’s exterior mirrors have turn signals, and they are heated and power folding. The package includes sun visors with illuminated vanity mirrors, an overhead console with a universal garage door opener, a glove box lamp and auto-dimming exterior mirror.

Off-Road Package

Available on all Ram 2500 trims equipped with 4×4 drivetrain and crew cab or mega cab, excludes Ram 2500 Power Wagon

The available off-road package includes a few different components that better prepare a Ram 2500 to conquer unpaved roads. The package includes Hill Descent Control, a trasfer case skid plate, an off-road decal and most configurations receive tow hooks. Hills descent control is a feature that functions when the truck is moving below 30 mph and is going down hills. The feature uses the electronic brake control and engine braking to sense terrain conditions and it will automatically slow the vehicle if the terrain is rough. Hill Descent Control also notifies drivers when the brakes are getting too hot and need to be stopped to allow the vehicle’s brakes to cool. The transfer case skid plate protects the vehicle’s 4×4 transfer case from being damaged by debris and the tow hooks are great for situations when the truck is being used to move a vehicle that is stuck.

Sport Appearance Group

Available on all Ram 2500 configurations of the Lone Star, Big Horn and Laramie trims

The Sport Appearance Group includes a mix of luxury, convenience and appearance features for both the interior and exterior of the truck.

The Sport Appearance Group has a lot of black exterior features including black headlamps, flat black badges, black mirrors and black tail lamps. In addition to the black features other exterior features include bi-function halogen projector headlamps, Bilstein® front and rear performance tuned shock absorbers, 20-inch chrome wheels and on/off road tires.

The interior features included in the Sport Appearance Group are mainly luxury features. The Sport Appearance Group features a leather-trimmed front bench seat, which means the cabin has seating for six passengers, folding flat load floor storage, front center seat cushion storage, high back seats, and ventilated front seats.
