Clyde, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/21/2011 -- Clyde Dodge fans were understandably excited when the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) named the Dodge Ram Laramie Longhorn the 2011 Truck Of Texas. Now Clyde Dodge shoppers can find the Laramie Longhorn at Blake Fulenwider Chrysler Dodge Jeep. Blake Fulenwider has all the options available for the 2011 Truck Of Texas, so drivers can customize the award-winning pickup to best suit their needs.
The TAWA doesn’t just pick its Truck Of Texas award from a list. 40 journalists attend a 2-day truck rodeo where car manufacturers show off their best pickups in a number of exhibitions, including on and off-road performances. Ram CEO and Texas native Fred Diaz said: “The Ram Laramie Longhorn captures the true spirit of Texas and the Southwest.”
Features Sure To Impress Clyde Dodge Shoppers
Under the Ram Laramie’s hood is a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that generates a whopping 390 horsepower and 407 pound-feet of torque. There’s not much the Laramie Longhorn can’t carry, with a 6.4-foot long cargo bed, a maximum towing capacity of over 10,000 pounds and payload capacity of 1410 pounds.. The spacious cabin comfortably seats 6. Both sides of the cargo bed have waterproof containers built in to carry smaller items.
What really makes the Laramie stand out is convenience features normally seen in luxury sedans. It contains perks like a heated steering wheel, adjustable pedals, rearview camera and chrome alloy wheels. The settings use a memory system, so a touch of a button will automatically adjust the seat, wheel, mirror and pedals to the driver’s preferred positions. It also contains the UConnect system: a multimedia platform in the control panel that plays music from stored mp3s, sets travel destinations, and allows hands-free calling with Bluetooth-compatible cell phones. The entertainment system also has Sirius Satellite Radio with a complimentary 1 year subscription.
Safety features include 4-wheel anti-lock brakes on all trims, advanced multi-stage front and side curtain airbags, electronic stability control and optional park assist. Trailer Sway Control optimizes steering and brake power to keep trailers from swinging dramatically during sharp turns. The Laramie Longhorn utilizes Ram’s revolutionary hydroformed frame, which is light, rigid, and incredibly durable. The hyrdroformed frame provides the base for its safety cage: a network of reinforced support beams and impact-absorbing crush zones that help protect everyone inside.
