Two-Way Split Tailgate from RAM

In case you haven’t heard the news, Ram Trucks are becoming ever-more popular among drivers. The Ram 1500 has recently been named as Truck of the Year for the second consecutive year, which has never been done before. Well, now they are patenting something that seems a bit radical, but will definitely be awesome! The two-way split tailgate from Ram is currently underway, and will help with a lot of functions.

Two-Way Split Tailgate
Just imagine this tailgate with a split down the middle and you will get an idea of what is to come.

Everybody should be familiar with how tailgates on trucks fold down to help with laborious tasks. Ok, now imagine if it could do that, as well as opening from the middle like double doors, and each “door” of the tailgate being able to fold out or down on its own as well.

Having the capabilities mentioned above, the tailgate will make it easier for loading and unloading cargo and will be able to support different shapes and sizes. Sometime you try to load a bed into a truck, but is just a few inches too big to close the tailgate. This means that you have to leave your tailgate down just for those few inches. Well, with the two-way split tailgate from Ram, you can fold one down, while the other stays up and supports other cargo. Perfect!

Bad news is that we don’t know when we can first expect that appearance of this new design in Ram trucks. In fact, we don’t even have all the information on their plans. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for any more information about this tailgate style, and we here at Corwin Dodge Ram will do the same.

Ram 1500 Truck Named Back-to-Back Truck of the Year

Motor Trend magazine is a highly reliable source to find great information on vehicles you are interested in, and advice on which vehicles they like the best. Each year they hold the “of the Year” event that names a vehicle in each segment as the vehicle of the year. This time, there was a first for Motor Trend. They named the Ram 1500 truck as the Truck of the Year for a second year in a row, which is a first for any truck.

A lot of factors go in to considering what vehicle will be placed in the number one spot of the year. First of all a vehicle must be new or significantly changed since the previous model, and it has to rank well in all categories of a truck.

The Ram 1500 added a new EcoDiesel engine to it that provides more energy and more power. This V6 engine provided lots of torque while still keeping great fuel economy. “Not only did [the Ram 1500] withstand our rigorous testing, it thoroughly impressed our judges with its vast array of standard and optional equipment, and most notable, its fuel-efficient, segment-exclusive EcoDiesel V-6. With 420 pound-feet of torque and up to 28 ‘Real MPG’ highway, the EcoDiesel is a true game-changer,” said Motor Trend’s Editor-In-Chief.

Engine features aren’t the only great aspects of the Ram 1500 truck though. Motor Trend also enjoyed its style and towing capability, giving top remarks for these categories.

Getting this ground-breaking truck will really make you appreciate its top-notch EcoDiesel engine and beautiful look. Come see the Ram 1500 trucks on our lot to go for a test drive and see exactly what reviewers are ranting and raving about.
