Why Buy a Ram Truck in Dixon, IL?


Ram trucks are versatile powerhouses ready to drive you around Dixon or help you get the job done on the worksite. They're built to tow, carry supplies, and keep you safe when you're driving around town. Here at Ken Nelson CDJR, here is why we recommend Ram trucks for the toughest jobs.


Made to tow


The Ram lineup offers a range of power levels, as evidenced by its different towing capacities.


The Ram 1500 starts at a minimum 4,350-pound towing capacity and maxes out at over 10,000 pounds. Confidently tow a boat, ATVs, or camper trailer for a weekend adventure. Need to tow a large RV for a longer getaway? The Ram 3500 can tow up to 37,100 pounds, which is plenty of muscle for the biggest RV on the market.


A variety of engines


A hefty haul won't get very far without a solid engine to back it up. Ram creates many capable powertrains so that each version is optimized for different types of tasks.


For example, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has an enormous 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine that's perfect for drivers who have a lot to haul in a hurry. The 2021 Ram 1500 Classic 4x4 comes with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that's perfect for city drivers that usually commute but need to haul camping equipment on the weekends.


Convenient design


Ram trucks use a variety of useful tools and systems to enhance your drives. The air suspension system makes traversing unpaved roads far smoother. The backup camera system and hitching guides make lining up your truck and trailer a breeze. Plus, an available 360-degree surround view camera ensures you see what's around you when moving in any direction.


Getting supplies out of your truck bed with a trailer still attached can be a hassle. Ram's intuitive multi-functioning tailgate has a 60/40 split swing away door that allows you to access whatever you need from whichever side of the truck bed you're on.
