This is because the 2013 Ram will hit the showroom floor with a series of powertrain upgrades, including the functions that have never been offered on the pick-up Americans until now.
Chrysler promises that the new 6.3 will improve the fuel efficiency “at least 20 percent.”
Many of the new technologies of mutton speak to his nature, fuel economy, including the air an eight-speed automatic transmission for both models with six and eight cylinders, the stop-start, better aerodynamics, electric power steering, window shutters and a grid self-regulation.
