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.

Is More Imagination Needed Towards Indy 500 Pace Car Selection?

Photo Credit: General Motor/Chevrolet This weekend, the Indianapolis 500 will be run for its 100th time. A primary focus around a 500-mile auto race around a historic 2.5-mile race track has resulted in a far amount of traditions. Some of these traditions such as the Fast 9 qualifying shootout and the honorary starter are newer aspects while one of the oldest is the ceremonial pace setter used to lead the field to the green flag. A staple of the Indy 500 since the first race in 1911, the pace car history ranges from a Stoddard-Dayton roadster to a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 used in last year’s event. This year’s Indianapolis 500 will feature an all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS trimmed in a special preview of the 50th Anniversary Package. The beautiful Abalone White sixth generation Camaro convertible features a 455-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8 LT1 engine perfect for maintaining pace lap speed ahead of a 33-car contingent of machines set to run at speed of 230 miles per hour.
