Get It Right the First Time with Ram 1500: A Real-World Testimonial

“A gentleman once told me sometimes you have to go slow to go fast,” says Stanley Pardel, an instructor at Greater Michigan Construction Academy. “This is something I always pass along to my students,” he says. “Take your time to do it right and you’ll get it done quicker because you won’t have to redo it.”

Driving this advice home, so to speak, is the 2016 Ram 1500 that Stanley uses daily moving equipment as an electrician. “Other than minor maintenance like oil changes and brakes, I’ve never had to do maintenance on my vehicle,” he says. “If you want something that has dependability and towing capacity, buy a Ram truck.”

His confidence comes easy when backed by a 10,620-pound max towing capacity and 1,880-pound maximum gas payload when properly equipped. “The 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine gives me the towing power I need,” he says, in reference to pulling his 30-foot trailer.

The Ram 1500 is a workhorse on wheels. The available rear in-floor storage bins and Uconnect® 8.4-inch touchscreen with Voice Command calling and Bluetooth® Streaming Audio make Stanley’s job easier. “These are all features I never used to have,” he says.
