2020 Jeep Gladiator

While FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) isn’t setting many sales records with its cars, its trucks are on fire. Jeep is maintaining its traditionally strong sales numbers, and Ram pickups have recently outsold Chevrolet’s (!!!) to become the nation’s #2-selling trucks behind the Ford F-Series. That’s huge.

Badlands Off-Road Park

2020 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon at Badlands Off Road Park

Badlands Off-Road Park in Attica, Indiana, is something like heaven on earth for off-road aficionados. It’s an incredible facility that spans 800-plus acres and encompasses a broader variety of off-road terrain than you’d ever expect to find in the Midwest. There are sand dunes, forested areas, streams for fording, several types of gravel (part of the park was previously a quarry), loose rocks and solid-rock trails, and lots of good ol’ dirt and mud. There are trails that are easy enough for children, trails that will challenge the most-experienced off-roader, and trails at most every level in between those extremes.

It took a recent conversation with an old friend to jog my memory. But the more she talked, the clearer my recollections became. There was a candy bar sold in the mid Seventies called Seven Up, and I had purchased many of them back in the day.

2019 Ram Heavy Duty 2500 Limited Mega Cab

Consumer Guide Automotive It wasn’t so much a matter of “if” as a matter of “when” … and “who.”

Over the past couple of decades, those following heavy-duty pickups have been treated to a race similar to that enjoyed by car enthusiasts for years. This one, however, wasn’t about horsepower; it was about torque. And though all the top contenders kept leap-frogging each other toward that magic 1000 lb-ft finish line, it was Ram that got there first.

2019 Ram Heavy Duty

Detroit Auto Show LogoWe’re not going to bury the lede on this one: the updated 2019 Ram Heavy Duty trucks now boast an available 1000 lb-ft of torque. This translates to what Ram claims is “the most powerful, most capable truck in the segment.”

That claim comes by way of a redesigned Cummins 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine and brings with it a host of impressive numbers. Most impressive is a towing capacity of up to 35,100 pounds and payload of 7680 pounds when properly equipped.

2019 Ram 1500 Hemi with eTorque

Consumer Guide Automotive In a quest for better fuel economy in traditionally thirsty trucks, Ram takes a page from the automotive playbook and banks on … a hybrid.

Well, a mild hybrid, actually, and while unique in today’s marketplace, it’s not the first.
