Let's face it, buying a pickup is often about having the room to haul heavy materials or go out for a night on the town, and the 2013 Dodge Ram can meet both demands -- in style.
Cost-conscious drivers will like the fuel-saver technology that comes as part of the 4.7-liter V-8 engine, six-speed automatic transmission and space in the crew cabin that will comfortably seat a family of four. The active grill shutters are designed to improve efficiency by closing at highway speeds to reduce drag.
Pay for the Uconnect access feature and you'll get Bluetooth wireless connectivity, voice commands, Yelp and emergency assistance, all from behind the steering wheel. The available Rambox cargo management system give you lighted, lockable and drainable storage so you can easily transition from a day of hauling debris to a weekend picnic with the family, just by hosing it down. Since hauling power does matter, the maximum towing capacity is 10,250 pounds.
