When you’re in the market for a brand-new chassis cab, few vehicles will do besides the 2020 RAM 5500 and Ford F-550. These two are the powerhouses in their class, both featuring incredible towing capabilities, engine power and performance, and features that fit your work needs.

Let’s look at how they compare to one another:

 

Performance

Speaking on performance only, you’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the RAM 550 and the Ford F-550. Both have engines that rival each other, with the RAM getting a 6.4L HEMI V8 base engine with 429 lb-ft. of torque compared to the Ford F-550’s base 7.3L 2V DECVT V8 gas engine with 468 lb-ft. of torque. Upgrades include a turbo-diesel engine with 800 lb-ft. of torque on the RAM and a turbo-diesel with 825 lb-ft. of torque for the F-550.

The RAM 5500 comes mated to a 6-speed automatic Aisin HD transmission, while the Ford F-550 [...]

jeep wagoneer vs grand wagoneer

Earlier this year, Jeep announced both the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer, two luxury vehicles with third-row seating and an array of features that add upscale elements to the brand’s lineup. But what’s the difference between the Jeep Wagoneer and the Jeep Grand Wagoneer? Although Jeep is keeping the full details for each under wraps for now, we do know a few key features and differences to expect in the two models:

Jeep Wagoneer

jeep wagoneer grand wagoneerHistorically, the Jeep Wagoneer was the very first 4×4 SUV, but it hasn’t returned for production since the early 1990s. Its reintroduction into the Jeep lineup is certainly a welcome one, giving the manufacturer a luxury option to meet almost any Jeep fan’s needs. 

The Jeep Wagoneer and the Jeep Grand Wagoneer will essentially be two trim levels for the same model. The [...]

No two businesses are the same. Some businesses depend on leasing their fleet vehicles while others choose to buy or finance them instead. Here are a few points to consider with buying vs. leasing fleet vehicles:

Affordability

Leasing and buying both have perks in terms of affordability, but for different reasons. Let’s compare:

  • Tax benefits: Buying a vehicle can provide your business with potential tax breaks that you won’t get when you lease.
  • Equity: When you purchase a fleet vehicle, you can build equity that you can use to refinance the vehicle later or trade in for something new. You don’t build equity in a leased vehicle.
  • Depreciation: New vehicles depreciate in value dramatically for the first couple of years after purchasing. If you don’t have much money to put toward a down payment, you could end up with little equity for your purchased vehicle until a few years later.
  • Up-front costs: Leasing generally [...]

RAM is beginning to release some details about its upcoming trucks for the 2021 model year as their releases quickly approach. There’s never a RAM we aren’t excited for, and it looks like next year’s options won’t make us stray from that rule. From the reintroduction of the mid-size Dakota pickup truck to the incredibly rugged, built-for-fun 1500 Rebel TRX, RAM expands its offerings to include a truck for everyone.

RAM will, undoubtedly, release more information to the public about its 2021 lineup. Here’s what we know so far:

Buying a new vehicle is only one part of the process. You also need to take care of that vehicle for years to come. Your manufacturer’s warranty will help you do that, but reading through them can make you more confused than you were before you started.

Manufacturer warranties cover a lot of stuff, but there’s also a lot they won’t cover, and it’s crucial to understand what typically gets left out of your warranty and why.

What the Manufacturer’s Warranty Doesn’t Cover

Your manufacturer’s warranty could differ from the norm, so it’s always a good idea to read through it and ask your salesperson for help if you don’t understand something. In general, these points aren’t covered by a manufacturer’s warranty:

Regular Maintenance

The maintenance of your vehicle is your responsibility, so it’s not something the manufacturer will pay for. You’ll need to get on a regular schedule of oil changes, tire rotations, fluid [...]

Winter weather is upon us, but that doesn’t mean your vehicle has to suffer. With regular maintenance checks, your car can stay on track to power through winter safely. Here are the most important car components to monitor before and during the winter:

Tires

Your tires play a significant role in how well (or not) your car moves in the winter. That includes your ability to accelerate and brake in icy or wet conditions.

If you live in an area prone to frigid temperatures, snow, and ice, you should consider putting a set of winter tires on your vehicle before winter weather arrives. Keeping your current tires? Make sure they have plenty of tread for ample traction. Check your tire pressure frequently, because cold temperatures can quickly bring it down and affect your traction.

Battery

You’ve probably attempted to start your car in frigid temperatures before only to be met with a slow-to-start groan from [...]
