When you're traveling from Dixon to nearby areas like Sterling and Rock Fall or even up to Oregon, you need a vehicle that you can rely on. Here at Ken Nelson Chrysler Dodge Jeep® Ram, we offer a variety of models that are ready for a tough day on the job or an outdoorsy weekend adventure.


Ram 1500


The Ram 1500 is a classic, hard-working pickup truck that has been offering power and purpose to drivers in Illinois for more than 40 years. This vehicle is built to carry all of your supplies, tow a trailer, and keep you safe - all while looking good, too.


But you don't have to take our word for it. The Ram 1500 has won multiple awards over the years from prestigious organizations like MotorTrend and Consumer Guide. This recognition comes from the Ram 1500's ability to be customized to meet a range of needs, from its various engine options to its cab sizes and bed options.


Ram 2500


For a heavy-duty version of the classic Ram 1500, you may want to consider the Ram 2500. This larger, brawnier truck offers more power and towing capability than the 1500.


The most recent iteration of the Ram 2500, for example, can tow up to 15,220 pounds when properly equipped (compared to the Ram 1500's 8,280 pounds). For reference, a commercial tractor can weigh well above 10,000 pounds, so you want to be sure you have the right truck for the job. Add in the Multifunction Tailgate that is split into hinged 60/40 swing-out doors, and you've got the ideal work truck for tough tasks around Dixon, Illinois.


Dodge Durango


The Dodge Durango SUV is a more family-focused vehicle that combines the space you need with enough power to get the job done. Dodge has consistently included a lot of standard equipment and features inside the three-row SUV, making it a great value.


The more recent model years of the Durango seat six or seven passengers and can be filled with advanced tech offerings like a premium nine-speaker audio system or an available rear DVD entertainment system for the kids. As a Dodge vehicle, the Durango is still capable and dependable. For the last five model years, the SUV's max towing capacity has ranged from 6,200-8,700 pounds.


Jeep® Cherokee


A long-standing vehicle in the Jeep® lineup is the Cherokee. Since the 1980s, this popular SUV has offered incredible 4x4 capability and various engine options that provide efficiency and power. For example, the 2020 Cherokee offered a turbo 2.0-liter I-4 motor as well as a 3.2-liter V6 that provided a max towing capacity of 4,500 pounds. However, both engines delivered close to 270 horsepower for a thrilling time behind the wheel.


In recent years, the Cherokee has been equipped with many innovative driver-assist safety features like lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alert.




For a touch of luxury and capability, consider the all-new 2022 Wagoneer. This Jeep®-inspired SUV encapsulates the beauty of America and offers a legendary 4x4 system to tackle the road less traveled. In terms of power, every Wagoneer model comes with a beastly 5.7-liter V8 engine that delivers 392 horsepower and a standard max towing capacity of 10,000 pounds.


Inside, the spacious Wagoneer offers three-row seating with the most overall passenger volume in its class. It also offers best-in-class cargo volume behind the third row for all of your gear. But if you need even more room, the full cargo area provides you with 116.7 cubic feet of space. The Wagoneer is great for large families in Dixon who need lots of seating and storage room.
