The 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 has an Active-Level™ Four-Corner air suspension system. This allows it to safely and easily carry any type of load. This class-exclusive feature is one of the reasons Dodge Ram is considered to be among the best trucks in its class.

This advanced piece of engineering gives the 2016 Ram 1500 five distinctive operational modes. This provides the ability to control each of the truck’s four corners individually, creating a superior ride, regardless of what’s being carried in the bed of the truck. The system’s automatic load leveling ensures a horizontal plane is maintained under heavy payloads. Plus it helps to improve the truck’s capability as well as maintain exceptional performance.

Drivers can use adjustable air springs to raise or lower the truck to any one of its five ride height settings based on where their work or play takes them. Plus the vehicle is able to deliver consistently even forward illumination and proper headlamp-to-road angle because of its constant driving profile. Conveniently placed dashboard buttons allow drivers to easily control all those activities with just their fingertips. This improves safety at night and in inclement weather. This new Active-Level™ Four-Corner air suspension system is just one more way Dodge protects people driving the Ram 1500 and makes them more comfortable.

The Five Modes

The five modes available in the new system for moving varying load weights down the road are Normal Ride Height, Aero, Off-Road 1, Off-Road 2 and Entry/Exit. Each of these modes is designed to address specific conditions or situations drivers may encounter day or night while using the 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 for business or pleasure. Should they need to change modes to increase safety, comfort or otherwise improve their driving experience, all drivers have to do is push one of the conveniently located buttons and the truck’s new system automatically makes the desired change. Test one out today at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas, and you are sure to have a ball.

Normal Height Ride

This mode offers the most comfortable balance between ride and handling during everyday driving.

Aero

When cruising along at highway speeds, this mode lowers the vehicle -0.6 inches automatically to reduce aerodynamic drag as well as “body roll”. This helps to measurably improve the truck’s fuel efficiency.

Off-Road I

When taking the Dodge Ram 1500 off the beaten path, this mode raises the front 1.2 inches and the rear 0.9 inches to provide extra clearance and outstanding ride balance.

Off-Road 2

If either work or play activities take the Ram off-road down rugged paths and over trails requiring more ground clearance, this mode raises the truck 2 inches more, which improves approach, departure and breakover angles.

Entry/Exit

This mode makes it easier to get into or out of the Dodge Ram 1500, hook up a trailer or load the bed by automatically lowering the front of the truck by 2.1 inches and the rear by 1.7 inches. To add even more comfort and convenience, Entry/Exit mode can be manually controlled by the internal button bank or remotely using the key fob.

Dodge has long been one of America’s biggest, best known and most beloved automotive car maker. For decades, Dodge has made a huge mark in the automotive world with amazing cars known for speed, power, style and comfort. One of Fiat Chrysler Automotive’s most iconic cars is the Dodge Challenger. Americans have been in love with the Challenger for years and have been waiting with bated breath for the latest version of the popular car. Well the wait is over, and Challenger lovers are in for a major surprise that’s sure to be appreciated. The 2017 Dodge Challenger will feature all-wheel drive.

The Rumor Is True

About a month ago, there was a rumor reported by Road and Track that FCA was going to release an all-wheel drive version of the Dodge Challenger. That rumor was accidentally confirmed recently by the Environmental Protection Agency. A visit to the EPA website shows the agency has posted a range of details about what can be expected on the 2017 Dodge Challenger. This unexpected revelation has led to lots of excitement and inquiries to Dodge dealers about when the public will have an opportunity to see and test-drive this newest version of the Dodge Challenger. While the EPA revelation may not have been FCA’s plan, car enthusiasts were glad to get the information.

A Select Portion

While the EPA website has divulged helpful information for the Dodge Challenger loving segment of the public, the data released shows that the changes in the 2017 Dodge Challenger come with a catch. That catch is not all the 2017 Dodge Challenger GTs will feature all-wheel drive. According to the information provided in the EPA report, only the Dodge Challenger models that have the V6 3.6-liter engine will feature all-wheel drive initially. However, that may change as production of this beloved automobile continues to be ramped up.

The New Specifications

Although all-wheel drive is the feature that most Dodge Challenger lovers are anticipating most anxiously, the 2017 models offers many more intriguing specifications that they are sure to love. Courtesy of Autoblog, the source of the confirmation of the information about Dodge’s 2017 Challenger GT, it was also revealed the vehicle will produce a fuel efficiency rate that offers about 18 miles per gallon when the vehicles traverses city streets and a whopping 27 miles per gallon when it hits the highway. That gives the vehicle a combined rate that’s a very respectable 21 miles per gallon. Check one out at Chapman Dodge Las Vegas, and you are sure to fall in love with the new rear wheel drive version.

The Rear-Wheel Drive Advantage

For people who choose the 2017 Dodge Challenger that is equipped with the same V6 3.6-liter engine but opt for the rear-wheel drive model, the Autoblog report noted that the mileage that vehicle gets is even better. The report states that the rear-wheel drive version of the 2017 Dodge Challenger GT gets as much as 19 miles per gallon in city driving and a record of 30 miles per gallon in highway driving. No matter which version of the new Challenger you choose, expect improved fuel-efficiency.
