The holiday season here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow has offered us many memories of “high praises from Christmas past” for our vehicles before: the awards, accolades, and positive reviews sometimes come in quicker than hot items such as Amazon gift cards on holiday wish lists! Now you can put another “virtual tack on the advent calendar” for the Ram 1500, as the car review staff on duty at Motor Biscuit heralded it over the Ford F150 for being unstoppable and thoroughly superior in every way.
For the last three years as just a beginner of a benchmark measurement, the Ram 1500 has taken the distinguished honors of the J.D. Power Most Appeal award, as well as the Car and Driver esteemed Truck of the Year. It effortlessly crushed the competition in the form of the Ford F-150’s hopes of being ranked high as the SEMA full-size truck of the year, even though we can offhandedly admit that Ford did bring some well-prepared builds along in their arsenal to the show.
Here amongst the excitement and many high-tech advancements in the auto industry, it’s the seasoned exhibitors themselves who cast the vote for the best vehicles in show. This year the Ram 1500 took the esteemed honors due to its added customization options courtesy of Mopar, allowing the driver to upgrade drastically and personalize their ride’s appearance as it is straight from the factory. There are literally hundreds of aftermarket accessories available for this truck, and many proud Ram owners have chosen to show their unique style and flair on the road.
The loud and wildly proud 2023 Ram 1500 Limited already has stormed the scene with this new level of luxury interior quality, and the brand-new Ram 1500 Limited Elite moves drastically even a step further ahead. Here you enjoy the addition of premium bucket seats, a customizable digital gauge cluster, a suede headliner, a multifunction tailgate, and one of our favorites: a custom jeweled rotary shifter. There is also the extreme and very awesome benefit of a 4-corner air suspension, a must when dealing with rocky roads, ruts, and other occupational hazards of the trail.
You’ll also be boarding or stepping out with the assistance of deployable running boards, a 12-inch infotainment screen, and a wireless charging pad. This Limited Elite comes with the trusty 5.7-liter V8 engine that doles out 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, along with under-seat storage, lockable storage boxes on the bedsides, and heated seats. This is the truck that KBB.com deemed as “an excellent full-size pickup truck in a class full of talented rivals”, solidifying its all-around excellence and wide appeal.
We have enjoyed watching just how loyal customers are to the Ram line here at Landmark, with its standard coil spring suspension that is so much more refined and precise than the leaf springs present in so many other trucks out there. The Rebel model acquires new holiday goodies this year in the form of Selec-Speed Control, while the ever-powerful and brutish TRX comes loaded with a specialized suspension and Bilstein components. The Tradesman Quad Cab boasts the lineup’s highest towing capacity, topping out at a respectable 12,750 pounds.
