The 2013 Ram's new optional air suspension handles load-leveling duties and rises to five heights: two off-road tippy-toe settings, normal, aero (for highway-speed driving), and a kneeling position that makes it easier to load people and cargo. No capacity figures were provided (manufacturers like to wait until the start of production in case they need to tweak the numbers to trump the competition), but we're promised the load-carrying and trailer-tow ratings won't be reduced for the air suspension. Company officials also promise that rigorous development testing ensures the rubber air bladders will last the useful life of the truck, but while I've seen original coil springs last 80-100 years, I haven't found many 50-year-old air springs still riding high.

2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Pulling a 10,000 lbs Trailer
2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Pulling a 10,000 lbs Trailer..
(This Truck has a Gross Combined Weight Rating of 16,000 LBS)
***To settle the annoying issue of people doubting the size and weight if
The trailer is a K321TBS by Gulfstream (Kingsport) It is 36 feet in length
and the stick and tin version weighs 8000, this is fiberglass, completely
empty this unit is 8700 LBS. Now add 2 adults in the truck (400 LBS) Add a
full fresh water tank (420LBS) Now add all the gear, food, supplies (300
LBS). Now the weight the truck is pulling is 10,050 lbs, plus I didn't
factor in the propane tanks, TV, or black tank. (probably another 160 lbs)
(hitch, distribution bars, and sway bars would make up another 70 lbs) This
would total up to 10,050 LBS. Hopefully this puts an end to these comments
that claim otherwise...
2013 Ram 1500 First Drive 0-60 MPH Test & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ram 1500 Pick-up may look very similar
to last year's model but it has been significantly improved. Not only does
it get a new Pentastar V-6 that offers 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the
highway, but it also gets a first time ever pick-up option...an eight speed
transmission. Combine that with available air-suspention and the new Ram
has al lot to offer potential pick-up truck buyers. Check out this first
drive review as we test and review the the HEMI along with the Pentastar
and the Tradesman Ram pick-ups.

The new 2013 Ram 1500 is the Ram Truck brand's latest entry into the

1500 conveys boldness, valor, virtue and power-oriented capability like no
other in its class, but it does so, aesthetically and functionally, at a

New 2013 Mercedes Benz GL Class _ Design
Mercedes-Benz's seven-passenger GL-Class gets a hefty redesign for 2013
with all-new styling inside and out. It's not just a new pretty face;
interior room and standard features have increased, plus two new turbocharged V-8 engines and a re-engineered
diesel V-6 are now under the hood.
More 2012 New York Auto Show Coverage
All versions of the GL (GL350, GL450 and GL550) are longer, wider and
taller than the outgoing luxury SUV. Occupants in all three rows have more
shoulder, elbow and headroom, Mercedes says. Although we never complained
about the previous GL's interior noise levels when cruising down the
highway, Mercedes says noise, vibration and harshness, which is known as
NVH, has been addressed. According to Mercedes, NVH in the GL now matches
that of the $91,800 S-Class sedan.
One area where we hoped to see an improvement has been addressed for 2013:
the interior. While not offensive as far as quality goes, the previous
SUV's interior styling was bland. The new cabin shares more similarities
with Mercedes' recent sedans than the previous GL. Up front, a new
high-resolution screen sits between the main gauges, while the main
multimedia screen is moved to the top of the dashboard.
The GL350, GL450 and GL550 engines have Boosted output numbers for 2013 and what
Mercedes calls a "substantial improvement" in fuel economy, though numbers
haven't been announced. The GL350's diesel V-6 has been tweaked for an
additional 30 horsepower and 55
pounds-feet of torque over the 2012 engine. The GL450 and GL550 now have
twin-turbocharged V-8s under their
hoods, with the GL450 making 362 hp — up 27 hp — and GL550 making 429
hp, up 47 hp.
A collision prevention system comes standard. It tracks decreasing
distances between the SUV and other cars as well as fixed objects. When a
collision is detected, the system alerts drivers with an audible and visual
warnings and prepares brake assist to give maximum stopping effort. Also
standard is an Attention Assist to alert sleepy drivers and Crosswind
Stabilization to keep the GL composed in high winds. Optional equipment
includes blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning and a surround-view
One thing you'll still have to pay extra for is genuine leather interior.
Like the previous GL, Benz's MB-Tex imitation leather is standard. The old
GL's MB-Tex was a convincing effort, however. Pricing of the 2013 GL hasn't
been announced, though the 2012 GL350 starts at $61,570.
