One of the most frigid Februaries that we can remember in Grand Rapids didn't keep people from buying RAM trucks. The February automobile sales was released last week, and Chrysler vehicles came out as big winners, with the RAM brand leading the way. Maybe there's something about winter that makes people interested in buying a powerful, durable, and dependable pickup truck ready to take on whatever the Michigan winter throws at them.

February of 2014 was the best ever February for RAM trucks, which is likely due to the success and popularity of the RAM 1500. In fact, the pickup truck line saw a sales increase of 26 percent since last year. For drivers in Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo-area 2014 RAM 1500 trucks represent a whole new paradigm when it comes to pickup trucks. Thanks to the all-wheel drive of the especially popular RAM 1500 4x4, drivers are assured that their truck has plenty of traction in the snow.

One of the biggest changes to the RAM 1500 this year is the fact that buyers have the option of including an environmentally-friendly diesel engine. Unlike loud and smoke-spewing diesel engines of the past, the EcoDiesel is quiet, still puts out a healthy 240 horsepower and 420 pound-per-foot of torque, and can get up to 26 miles per gallon on the highway.

The 2014 RAM 1500 is not all brawn with no refinement. The interior of the truck sees one of two available touchscreen interfaces that measures either five or 8.4 inches across. These easy-to-use screens control a variety of functions, including the climate control and the audio system. The best-selling 2014 RAM 1500 is now on our lot at Courtesy Chrysler Jeep Dodge
