With the 2013 Ram 1500 enjoying some well-deserved attention lately, it’s no surprise that another member of the Ram Truck lineup – the Ram C/V Tradesman – would quietly go about its business, not necessarily in the shadows, but away from the spotlight currently shining so bright on the North American Truck of the Year. Today on RamZone we turn once again to the Ram C/V, happy to share the following news.
The model-year 2013 Ram C/V Tradesman is now available for purchase on dealer lots. Even with no major changes from the 2012 model, the 2013 is still a leader in many Class 1 capabilities and remains an excellent choice for small businesses that make a living, at least in part, from deliveries. Here’s why:
- The Pentastar® V-6 engine, standard in Ram C/V, delivers best-in-class horsepower and torque
- Ram C/V offers best-in-class cargo space, payload and class-exclusive towing capability
- Commercial-tuned ride and heavy-duty suspension maximize payload capability
- Solid side privacy panels and flat load floor are tailored for small-business needs
It’s important to note that Ram C/V offers small businesses many competitive advantages. Among them, the cargo van provides an 1,800-pound payload and category-exclusive towing capability, up to 3,600 pounds. With a 20-gallon fuel tank and an EPA-estimated 25 miles per gallon (mpg) highway, Ram C/V also delivers a best-in-class fuel range of up to 500 miles.
