2019 Ram 1500 Sport Model Honours Canadian Customers

Canadians buy twice as many Ram pickups (per capita) as do Americans. This fact went a long way towards the request – and creation of a Canadian exclusive model for 2019 – the Sport. This truck will include all the most commonly ordered appearance features in one package.  It includes a monochromatic exterior theme, body-colour door handles, mirrors and grille with all-black badging. Also a sport performance hood, dual black exhaust tips, 22-inch black accent wheels and all-black Sport-themed interior design. This includes cloth/vinyl bucket seats, black satin chrome, black headliner and a 7-inch centre cluster with Sport splash screen.

2018 Heavy Duty Pickup Challenge Results

The first real snow of the season was pelting the HD Silverado I had just picked up from the General Motors plant in Oshawa, ON. This diesel powered 2500 had just 1,500 km on the clock and it had been shiny and clean – but was now splattered with freezing salty slush. It was now just another dirty pickup truck heading north through the back roads of the Oak Ridges Moraine.

Pirelli Truck Tires. Really?

Attending the launch of a new Pirelli tire at a motor speedway seems natural enough; until you realize that the new tire is a Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus that’s aimed at the North American truck market. That was the first surprise from the manufacturer that is best known for hi-performance tires built for speed. The next one was that they would attempt to jump into this market at all; however looking at the potential sales it does make sense.
