As you may know Ram Truck Brand is now separated from Dodge to make up its own identity.
And they seem to have a new idea for business as well because they have made a special pickup truck that they say will appeal to the younger generation. Last time we checked the younger generation were more into hot hatchbacks and sportscars than trucks! But the simple fact of the matter is, the 2011 Ram 1500 Express Unveiled is a great pickup offering good value for money and plenty of personalization options.
As for after-market add-ons, I have been looking closely at truck seats ever since we found I have this back thing going on. They’re great for extra comfort and position options. It would look great with a nice car window tinting for my privacy. If you have an issue like I do or simply plan to take her on long drives then I suggest you consider on for yourself as well.
The truck is powered by the standard 20-mpg developing 390 horsepower and 407 lb.-ft. of torque. Ram 1500 Express comes as a regular cab, short-bed model, with a choice of 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain. When equipped with an optional Class IV hitch, the new Ram 1500 Express will tow a maximum trailer weight of 10,450 lbs.
