Auburn Hills, Michigan: Off-Road Adventures magazine has named Ram Truck as Manufacturer of the Year.
In its December 2010 issue, Off-Road Adventures credits Ram Truck’s commitment to advanced design and proven powertrains for the honour.
“We’re proud that Off-Road Adventures magazine has named Ram its Manufacturer of the Year,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand and Lead Executive for US Sales, Chrysler Group LLC. “Their decision to feature the Ram Power Wagon on their cover photo seems very fitting, because Ram Power Wagon’s unmatched off-road capability makes it the best truck you can buy for a real off-road adventure.”
“Today, the new 2011 Ram carries forward the legacy of innovative upgrades, one that the editor and writers of Off-Road Adventures magazine recognize as a significant achievement in truck design and engineering,” said Off-Road Adventures Editor and Publisher Denis Snow.
The magazine went on to praise Ram Heavy Duty’s 5.7-liter HEMI® and 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel powertrains.
“These proven powertrains are well known for their reliability,” the Off-Road Adventures writers said. “The Cummins Turbo Diesel has major overhaul intervals of 350,000 miles. Recall that Ram and Cummins have worked shoulder-to-shoulder for more than 20 years, delivering billions of miles of customer satisfaction. Cummins-equipped Ram trucks exceeding 300,000 miles are common, with some even surpassing the 1 million mark! No surprise, then, that all Ram Truck engines, transmissions and axles are covered by a segment-leading five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.”
