Ram Named Best Truck Brand by U.S. News

Boasting an impressive combination of powerful capabilities and sophisticated features, the Ram lineup was recently honored as the Best Truck Brand for 2020 by U.S. News and World Report.

Ram trucks lead their segments in a wide range of categories, including the Cummins Turbo Diesel engine’s unbeatable 1000 lb-ft of torque, 35,100-pound towing capacity for the Ram 3500, most spacious and luxurious interior, and best owner loyalty.

In awarding the Ram brand, U.S. News cited its interior luxury, broad appeal, and leadership in innovation.

U.S. News also praised the exclusive use of the coil-spring rear suspension in the Ram 1500, which creates a more comfortable ride than most pickups, as well as its huge touchscreen infotainment system and the fuel-efficient new EcoDiesel engine option.

The magazine also noted that while Ram trucks start off at a higher price than competitors due to their abundant luxury features, a fully-loaded top trim is actually less expensive than the highest trims of competitors.

The Ram brand’s dedication to creating the perfect balance of cabin comfort and class-leading performance is why the Ram 1500 is the most awarded light-duty truck in the country. The 2020 Ram 1500 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and the 2019 Ram 1500 was named the Official Truck of Texas and a Consumer Guide Best Buy.

Ford Introduces the Electrifying Mustang Mach-E

We all love the power and performance that comes with the Ford Mustang. Now, the Mustang lineup is expanding with the innovative, all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV. This SUV promises to deliver exceptional electric performance.

“The Mustang Mach-E wholeheartedly rejects the notion that electric vehicles are only good at reducing gas consumption,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s chief product development and purchasing officer. “People want a car that’s thrilling to drive, that looks gorgeous, and that can easily adapt to their lifestyle — and the Mustang Mach-E delivers all of this in unmatched style.”

The Mustang Mach-E will go on sale in late 2020 and will be available with both standard and extended-range battery options. With the extended-range option, the Mach-E should have an EPA-estimated range of at least 300 miles. Its powertrain will have an expected output near 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque.

For those looking for even more thrills, there will be two special performance models available, the GT and GT Performance Edition. These models will have an estimated output of 459 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque. The GT Performance Edition will have a 0-60 mph time in the mid-3-second range.

You can reserve your Mustang Mach-E right now at Ford’s website, or test-drive it at Kevin’s Royal Auto in Cooperstown later this year.
