Work Truck magazine today named the Class 4 and 5 Ram 4500 and 5500 Chassis Cab truck its 2011 Medium-Duty Truck of the Year, which is quite an honor. The team at Briggs Dodge of Topeka, Kansas is happy to announce that they have these award winning trucks available for the people of Topeka, Kansas.

"The commercial truck segment is all about total cost of ownership," said Fred Diaz, Ram Truck President and CEO and Head of U.S. Sales - Chrysler Group LLC.

"When you account for fuel economy, brake wear, tire wear and the best powertrain warranty in the business, Ram Chassis Cab trucks offer the lowest cost of ownership."

Many people around Kansas rely on trucks to work as well as get around in their personal life. This is why it is important to choose a truck that is dependable, even in the mid-sized range.

Among Ram’s best-in-class features:

●    Best-in-class standard Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 19,500 lbs.

“It’s a simple matter of economics. More towing and payload means fewer loads. And fewer loads mean lower fuel bills. For commercial customers, cost of ownership is a primary consideration.”
