Topeka, KS (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
When the news broke that a truck with an 11,500-pound maximum trailer rating and 3,100-pound payload, the sales team at Briggs Dodge was excited. As the leading Dodge Ram dealership in Topeka, Kansas, they know the Ram 1500 Tradesman Heavy Duty tows and hauls more than any other light-duty truck.
The Ram 1500 Heavy Duty’s 17,500-pound gross combined weight rating (GCWR) also tops all half-ton pickups in the market. The truck is available exclusively as a 4x2 regular cab truck with an 8-foot bed. The new Ram 1500 Tradesman HD is built for ultimate capability. Ram Truck brand employees and the President were very impressed with it.
“The Ram 1500 Tradesman Heavy Duty is a job-rated truck with the features commercial truck buyers want at a price they can afford,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC.
“The commercial truck segment is all about total cost of ownership and that includes being able to tow and haul more. It’s a simple matter of economics", said Diaz. "More towing and payload means fewer loads. And fewer loads mean lower fuel bills.”
The Ram 1500 Tradesman Heavy Duty is the newest member of the Tradesman family of trucks, which were launched in February 2011.
The Tradesman, which is aimed at one of the pickup truck category’s largest traditional customer bases, is a value-priced option package designed to meet the hard-working needs of small-business owners, construction jobsites and commercial fleets.
Additionally, the new Ram 1500 Tradesman offers even better performance for the price than other work trucks in the segment. Even non-HD Tradesman models provide best-in-class standard work truck capability, towing 10,450 pounds, which is quite impressive when you stop and think about it a little bit.
