2014 Ram 1500 Wins Motor Trend Truck of the Year for Second Time

For the very first time, the Motor Trend Truck of the Year award goes to last year’s winner, the Ram 1500. This model is the only truck that has won the award two years in a row. With its new EcoDiesel V6 engine, the Ram 1500 beat out some stiff competition this year. The Ram proved its reliability against its nine other contenders testing done by judges which measured tow, payload, and driving experience. Judges measured these stats 0-60 times to ensure accuracy in Uvalde, TX.

This truck of the year gets an average of 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. When this truck underwent real-world testing it got up to 24 mpg over hills in Malibu, CA.

In addition to being the only truck to ever win this award two years in a row, the announcement was made in Michigan which is the birthplace of Ram trucks. The Ram 1500 outclasses its stiff competition not only with its fuel economy and Torque, but also its style and all amenities it has to offer.

Service Discounts

In Michigan, winter can be one of the most hazardous times to drive. With Detroit, MI ranked as the 9th snowiest city in the US, on average, Detroit receives around 42.7 inches per year.  What does this mean for drivers? It means they better be prepared for any weather condition that comes their way. To help, this year your local Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep dealership in Rochester Hills, MI near Orion, has but a list together of helpful driving tips and is also offering Winter Service Special Discount Coupons until January, 2, 2014!

  1. Stick to the route you know best: sometimes it can be a good idea to check the web for current weather conditions before you leave for your daily commute. This way you can avoid accidents and if you get stuck, describe exactly where you are.
  2. Pack a winter travel safety bag: safety bags can come in handy when you least expect it. An extra phone, charged phone battery, heavy blankets, Advil, flashlight, matches, portable radio, first aid kit, and even a map can help save your life.
  3. Slow down and make sure your lights are turned on: make sure this winter you leave plenty of time and are not in a rush. A good rule to follow is keep your lights on while driving and reduce speed by 50% in hazardous weather conditions.
  4. Lighten up your grip: when you grip your steering wheel too tight, this can make it harder to quickly turn your car id need be.
  5. Schedule a car maintenance checkup: you will want to make sure your spark plugs are new, your battery is strong, lights are working properly and there are no cracks in your timing belt. Check out some of our monthly winter car service specials and see how you can save!
  • Free Tire and Brake Inspection
  • $10 Wiper Blades Replacement
  • Full Cooling System Flush for only $98.95
  1. If you are stuck, do not leave your vehicle: Do not chance getting lost in a snowstorm. Also, make sure that nothing is blocking your exhaust pipe so the carbon monoxide does not build up in your vehicle.

The best tip of all is to avoid driving in hazardous weather conditions as often as possible. If you are and something happens we want to make sure you are fully prepared and not stranded with no power in the middle of a Michigan winter snow storm.
