FCA US LLC has something very special to boast about. Motor Trend just released a comparison of pickup trucks from the leading manufacturers, which included the 2017 RAM 2500. After a lengthy driving test from professional drivers, Motor Trend ultimately listed the RAM 2500 as the winner. Our Amityville, NY new car dealership is excited to share this information with you!

How did it win? The judges determined that another contender underperformed under heavy rainfall, while another competitor did well but had issues in its powertrain combo. This left the RAM 2500, which was deemed “just right” for its off-road capability and performance. Motor Trend described the RAM pickup as “oozing confidence.”

It should also be noted that the 2018 RAM 2500 comes with a standard electric winch, capable of towing 12,000 pounds. Motor Trend also put the winch to the test, releasing an in-depth review complete with safety and hooking tips. The winch can haul massively heavy loads, including some RVs and even a flipped-over SUV lying in a ditch.

There is other news going on for the RAM brand now that the 2018 model year will be here soon. For starters, the 2018 RAM 1500 will see two new trims: the RAM 1500 Big Horn Black and RAM 1500 Lone Star Black. The latter, as you might guess from its name, is a Texas-only edition. As for the RAM Big Horn Black? It goes without saying that the exterior is clad exclusively in black, including the grille, badging, and headlamp bezels. There will also be a Sport package for both the 2018 RAM 2500 and 2018 RAM 3500.
