SAMSUNG CSCFitting a Big Trucks in a Tight Society

By now, everyone including their grandmas are aware of vehicle emissions and its negative impact on both the climate and your wallet. The big-size pickup truck certainly doesn’t portray much of an idea of “green is clean” initiative either. But there is hope to move towards that direction with the RAM 1500. The RAM 1500 owns the spotlight light in terms of fuel economy, achieving a very respectable 29 miles per gallon (MPG).

The RAM 1500 engine configuration options also offer a 3.6 liter Pentastar V-6 engine delivering 305 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque, or the upper tier 5.7 liter HEMIV-8 with Variable valve timing (VVT) producing 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque.

Nothing quite beats that badass feel of being in the driver’s seat of a modern day V8 hot rod.

A Tank on Street Roads

Despite all the attempts to over-rule the 7-seater market segment with lighter and flashier cross-overs, the classical ultra-solid domestic SUV continues prevails. Perhaps it’s the sense of safety from cruising in a tank-like vehicle, the abundance of cargo space from a box-like structure, or simply a reluctance to change that continues to capture consumer’s money.  But regardless of reason, the beating heart of the 2016 Dodge Durango remains strong.

Just one level lower than the top trim SRT Hell-cat V8, but this bad boy still pulls out a colossal 475 horsepower at the rear wheels. With that being said, this burnout machine shows no reserves off the line.
