How We’d Spec It: Yes, Basic Jeep Wranglers Still Exist in 2015

In light of Jeep's recent forays into crossover-dom--see the Renegade and Cherokee, please--we've been hit hard with nostalgia for the brand?s good ol' days. You know, the ones filled with solid axles, real four-wheel drive with low-range gearing, and manly stick-shift transmissions. So we moseyed over to Jeep's online configurator to start building out a Wrangler, only to remember that, holy crap, the things are expensive. (Oh, and they're huge.) That's okay, our ideal Wrangler isn't some gussied-up, $40,000 toy?it's a beastly, featureless stripper model, and thanks to Jeep's…

Black is the new black

Some Web sages noticed that the only interior color available for the Ram Rebel and Laramie Limited was black (this has been true for both generations of Laramie Limited).  With the 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie Limited, even the headliner and pillars are black.

We asked Ram lead interior designer whether this was due to customer choice or cost, and he said it was partly a matter of being appropriate to the vehicle.

There's just something about wearing a black suit, just a nice black suit, that your details pop.  I think that's the thing that we've learned…

Siberian-style cold for Ram tests

Houghton Michigan, not a place many of us might be familiar with, but the Ram cold weather group is rather freezingly acquainted with the town.




Houghton is where Ram conducts some of its severe duty cold weather testing, and they just released a video showing what some of the cold weather testing entails. Houghton sees an average of 260 inches of snow each year, and combined with the bitter cold of this winter, has allowed Ram to put its trucks through even more rigorous than normal testing.

The company does have simulated cold weather facilities, including both "chill rooms" and…

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Problems

Quick Facts...

    Hundreds of Americans die every year from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
    Carbon monoxide in the home can come from many sources.
    If you experience CO poisoning symptoms, get fresh air immediately and go to an emergency room.
    Prevention is the key to protecting you and your family.

What Is Carbon Monoxide?

You cannot see or smell carbon monoxide (CO), but at high levels it can kill a person in minutes. It is the leading cause of poisoning death…

Driving the 2015 Ram Promaster, the city van with a plan

A new breed of vehicle is appearing on American roads, and, well, it's surprisingly straightforward: it's a minivan that's an actual mini van. Not the Honda Odyssey or the Toyota Sienna or any of those other bloated family-haulers that may technically be "vans" but are hardly mini, but rather old-fashioned boxes on wheels?low on amenities, high on utility. And as we've come to find out, they?re not that bad to drive either.

That's certainly the case with the 2015 Ram Promaster City, which joins the Ford Transit Connect and the Nissan NV200/Chevrolet…

Ram Jam: Ram Trucks CEO Talks Hellcat, Compact Trucks, and More

Last August, longtime Chrysler executive (he's been with the company since 1988) Robert Hegbloom took the position of CEO of Ram Trucks. Now that he's had time to get comfortable with the reins, we sat down to talk sales numbers, EcoDiesel, mid-size trucks, and more--much more.

Car and Driver: Ram sold 395,567 trucks in 2014, placing it in fourth place in the bestselling-vehicle derby behind the Toyota Camry (396,988), the Chevrolet Silverado (471,918), and the Ford F-series (679,496). Safe to call it a big year?

Robert Hegbloom: We were up 28 percent year over…

Next Jeep Wrangler Keeps Solid Axles, Loses Folding Windshield

Among the key design features of the Jeep Wrangler, we'd say the solid-axle suspension is several orders of magnitude more important than the cool-but-perhaps-not-critical folding windshield. To that end, a recent Automotive News report should be mostly good news for the Jeep faithful.

The report states that the Wrangler will keep its solid front and rear axles when the vehicle is redesigned for the 2017 model year. That will have true believers breathing a sigh of relief, as Jeep had already ditched the solid axles in its other models.

The Grand Cherokee switched to an independent front suspension with…

Hail to the Indian Chief Motorcycle

There's a good chance, many years from now, that history will judge this particular red-and-white 1948 Indian Chief as one of the most important Indian motorcycles on the planet. No, it wasn?t owned by Steve McQueen or any other celebrity; it's not a special VIN, not the only or the first or the last of anything; it certainly didn't win any races or set any speed records either. It?s unremarkable except for one fact: This is the motorcycle that spent two years parked in the Polaris design studio, where it served as the visual inspiration…

Meet the 2015 Ram Laramie Limited

With high sales of luxury trucks, an upgraded top-end Ram pickup is not surprising - unlike its 1968-Plymouth-Barracuda-like grille (actually based on an interesting piece of furniture, according to Ram?s chief exterior designer).

Meet the new 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie Limited and 2016 Ram 2500 and 3500 Laramie Limited.

Pricing has not been announced, but the outgoing models start at $49,320 (Ram 1500), $53,195 (Ram 2500), and $54,440 (Ram 3500). That is for the 5.7 liter Hemi V8, driving the rear wheels, with a crew cab, and a 5'7" box on the 1500 and eight-foot…
