When connecting with Canadian motorists, we certainly love our pickup trucks. In the case of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), the full-sized Ram pickup trucks sold under the Ram brand is, by almost every definition, the workhorse for the auto company. The half-ton version Ram 1500 pickup truck possesses powerful towing and hauling capacity from innovative yet potent engines such as the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, 5.7-liter Hemi V8 as well as the recently-added EcoDiesel V6 engine. Important to the Canadian arm of FCA, the vehicle is a high-selling product. In the first five months of 2015, the Ram pickup line accounted for 37,572 in sales dwarfing the Jeep Cherokee as well as the Chrysler 200 Sedan.

With the success of the EcoDiesel V6 engine last year, the Ram brand has gained encouragement to expand into deeper niches with their full-sized truck line-up. During the 2015 auto show season, the world was introduced to the Ram 1500 Rebel off-road warrior 4x4. A challenger to the Ford F-150 Raptor, the 1500 Rebel features 33-inch Toyo tires and standard skid plates. About a month after the 2015 North American International Auto Show introduction of the Ram 1500 Rebel, a new version of the luxury-appointed crew cab debuted in February in the form of the 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie Limited. Forged aluminum wheels as well as an interior featuring a new console bin and Black Argento wood trim are notable on the Laramie Limited model. Both new models of the Ram 1500 are characterized with unique grilles.

For the Canadian market, pricing for the two distinct versions of the Ram 1500 line has been released in time for mid-year sales. Starting price tag for the Ram 1500 Rebel Crew Cab will be $51,895. Available only with four-wheel drive, the Ram 1500 Rebel will be matched with the Pentastar V6 as well as the HEMI V8 powerplant that is offered at a cost of $53,195.

The new Laramie Limited models will come as both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions offered with either the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 or the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6. With a starting price of $59,995 for the HEMI powered 4x2 model, the 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie Limited is almost $8,500 more expensive than the currently available Laramie Limited it is replacing. With the EcoDiesel V6 engine, cost for the 1500 Laramie Limited 4x2 is $63,845 while the 4x4 will be priced at $67,845.

Prices of the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel and 1500 Laramie Limited do not include a $1,695 destination charge.

  Photo Credit: James Gilbert/Getty Images untitled On Wednesday of this week (May 5 th of 2021), NASCAR will formally present the sport’s newest Cup Series chariot. Originally called the Gen 7 car before adopting the moniker of the Next Gen car, the vehicle was initially planned to be part of the 2021 racing season but was pushed to 2022 due to the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 disrupting development as well as team finances to implement the Next Gen car. From the details already leaked about the Next Gen car, the 2022 Cup season is destined to deliver the biggest learning curve ever to drivers, team and fans. Ahead of the official unveiling of the car, indications of a new spec chassis, six-speed manual transmission, independent rear suspension as well as a larger diameter, single-lug wheels are radically going to reshape the operations of NASCAR Cup Series teams on and off the track. With anticipation building towards the planned on-track introduct

Morbid Motoring History: Transaxle of James Dean’s Porsche 550 Spyder Up For Auction

Photo Credit: Porsche AG untitled More than 65 years after James Dean’s fatal highway crash on U.S. Route 466, a verifiable piece has surfaced of the vehicle involved in the ill-fated Porsche 550 Spyder the 24-year-old actor drove in his last moments of life. Through an online auction being held on Bring A Trailer , buyers with a desire to obtain a rather ghoulish gearbox. The Porsche 550 Spyder was one of the first purpose-built race cars assembled to establish a name of what was once a small sports car located in Stuttgart, Germany. A derivative of Porsche’s 356 production car, the 550 Spyder’s compact, lightweight stature (the 550 was in reference to the vehicle’s weight in kilograms) combined with a mid-mounted 1,500 cc flat-four engine proved almost instantly superior in competition. Entering competition in 1953 by Porsche, the 550 Spyder cemented much of the early on-track success for the brand including a class victory at the 1953 24 Hours of Le Mans. A total of 90

A New Four-Runner: Helio Castroneves Wins Monumental 2021 Indy 500

Photo Credit: Joe Skibinski/IndyCar untitled As race day for the 105 th edition of the Indianapolis 500 at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway approached, a number of favourites emerged through the practices and qualifying session. Six-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon topped the lists of many analysts after he captured the race’s pole position . Dixon’s #9 Chip Ganassi Racing’s Dallara-Honda posting the fastest time in Friday’s Carb Day practice only solidified the logic of picking the New Zealander to win. Other names favoured for having the best chances to drink milk in Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s victory lane included Colton Herta, Rinus VeeKay, Alex Palou and Alexander Rossi. Besides Scott Dixon, it is surprising to conceive after the 2021 running of the 500-mile greatest spectacle in racing that another more veteran name wasn’t immediately entered into top contention prior to the green flag. Unlike the COVID-19 delayed 2020 event that ran on August 23 in 85
