Ram Truck's Outdoorsman Trim Returns for 2013

2013 ram outdoorsman
An Outdoorsman model will again join the Ram 1500 lineup for 2013. Originally introduced two years ago, the model combines off-road capability and trailer-towing hardware and has become a popular part of the pickup truck's lineup.

Quad and crew cab sizes will be available for 2013, along with two bed lengths, 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet 4 inches. Both beds will be equipped with the RamBox storage compartment. The Outdoorsman will get power from the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, with either last year's six-speed automatic transmission or a new eight-speed automatic.

Outdoorsman-specific features include a standard Class IV receiver hitch, integrated trailer brake controller with driver adjustability, a limited-slip differential, and available trailer-tow mirrors and backup camera, among others.

The Ram brand was created following Chrysler's alliance with Italian automaker Fiat, and the plans called for Dodge switching to an exclusively car-based lineup with all pickup and future heavy-duty trucks by Chrysler being sold under the Ram brand. This was to start in the 2010 calendar year. There is also a possibility of adopting the Fiat Ducato commercial van to fill the gap of the Sprinter which Mercedes ended the production of in 2008. The goal was to increase truck sales "from today's 280,000 to 415,000 by 2014".
