Ram Truck

If you have a Ram truck, you have a great piece of machinery on your hands. However, since winter is fast approaching, you will want to do more to keep it in good shape. Luckily, if you do, you can watch as your Ram lasts longer and gives you fewer problems. With this in mind, here are five winter care tips for your Ram truck.

Warm up that engine: First and foremost, if we are dealing with temperatures under 32 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s wise to warm up the engine. By taking a few minutes to warm up the engine, not only can you step into a toasty and warm Ram, but you will put less wear-and-tear on the engine. Since a cold engine has to work harder, it’s wise to also take it easy for the first few minutes while on the road. By not gunning it and driving fast and hard, you can ensure that your Ram engine lasts a long time. To see the entire lineup of Ram trucks, you can head to Chapman Dodge and see one in person.

Wash it often, including the underside: If you are driving on mountain roads or out where there is salt on the road, you will want to wash your truck more often. Think about it, if you have salt get all over your truck, it’s going to damage the underbody and the paint. But, if you take it to the car wash or do it yourself, you can remove harmful salt. Remember, cars and trucks in cold weather areas usually don’t last as long, and a main reason is due to salt. To see how great the original paint is, you can see a Ram at your local Las Vegas Dodge dealership.

Change out the fluids: You need to be vigilant when changing out your oil. Not only that, you should remember to check, and if necessary change, your transmission fluid. Since a truck will work harder in the winter, you can save yourself plenty of trouble if you simply change out the fluids. At the same time, if you are going to change the fluids, you should also do a quick once-over and make sure that the air filters, both in cabin and external, are looking good. In the end, if your truck has fresh and clean fluids and air filters, you will ensure that it runs at its best.

Windshield wipers: While busted windshield wipers won’t cause you drivetrain problems, they can cause visibility problems, which will make your drive dangerous. But, if you are wise, you will fully inspect your windshield wipers in the late fall. Then, you can easily replace them manually if you need to do so. That way, you can make sure you arrive safely and in once piece.

Inspect those tires: Finally, if you want to have fun in the snow without any worries, you should inspect your tires. If they need rotating or replacing, you should do so immediately. Remember, your tires are the only thing that touch the ground, and you can save yourself plenty of grief if you take care of them.

With these five simple and straightforward tips, you can ensure that your Ram is ready for the long and sometimes snowy and wet winter.

Dodge Charger

The 2015 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack is definitely an attention-grabbing ride. This 485 horsepower muscle sedan looks and sounds fast and powerful. There’s nothing subtle about this vehicle. Its 6.4-liter V8 HEMI packs a punch and delivers an astounding 475 lb-ft. of torque. But what’s even better than the impressive numbers is the way the 2015 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack makes you feel. This is a driver’s car built for performance, and as soon as you get behind the wheel and crank up the engine, you feel the beast beneath you is ready to devour anything in its path. To see what you can devour with this beast, check one out at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas.

Sure it’s a sedan with enough room to take a family of 5 to school, church, and grocery shopping, but this vehicle is a barely controlled caged beast. Whether you’re weaving through in-town traffic or zooming down the highway, it gives you a rush few vehicles in its class can match. It can make even the most staid, responsible family man or woman feel like an outlaw. Its aggressive stance, aerodynamic shape, huge hood bulge, 20-inch wheels, and loud twin tailpipes let people know that even though you dress conservatively and work 9 to 5, you definitely have a wild side.

The 2015 Dodge Charger RT Scat Pack is sure to turn heads, set hearts aflutter, and get the neighbors talking. But that’s just because they wish they had one, too. Its smooth-shifting 8-speed TorqueFlite auto transmission, Brembo brakes, push-button start, solid, straightforward dashboard with neat buttons and controls, Launch Control, adjustable steering, black cloth seats, and traction control create the façade this is a well-behaved family sedan. But its quick first step, 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, and its top speed of 175 mph makes it seem just barely street legal.

You can upgrade the 2015 Dodge Charger RT Scat Pack with a heated steering wheel, memory driver seat positioning, Nappa leather and Alcantara seats, added ventilation, and heating in the rear, and navigation and Uconnect 8.4-inch touchscreen for added interior comfort. You can even customize the settings using the touchscreen located in the center stack. The options list also contains the Driver Confidence Group with cross-path and blind-spot detection, collision warning, adaptive cruise control, heated side mirrors, and rear-parking assist for added safety and convenience.

It’s all part of the vehicle’s available Technology Group which includes lane departure and keep-assist, automatic high-beam control, rain-sensing wipers, and power steering wheel adjustment. The 2015 Dodge Charger RT Scat Pack gets an EPA estimated 15 mpg in city driving, 25 mpg cruising on the highway and requires premium gas. But while the vehicle has elements that add a degree of practicality, its real signature is its raw, unadulterated power. This compromise is easy to live with because the amazing 2015 Charger R/T Scat Pack is miles away from ordinary and leaves more respectable-looking sports sedans in its dust, and its drivers jealous and wishing they bought a Dodge Charger RT.
