If you’re looking for a truck that’s as capable at hauling a load of gravel as it is making a trip to the big box store, you really need to consider the Dodge Ram 2500. With a number of different trim levels ranging from the Tradesman basic work truck to the fully-decked out Limited model, the Dodge Ram 2500 offers a choice of diesel and gas engines that are built to handle the job at hand. For the most power and torque, you have the legendary 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine as an option, which provides the ultimate in towing and hauling capabilities. Check out the inventory at Chapman Payson and see how the Ram 2500 provides both the power and comfort modern drivers crave.

‘Best in Class’ Seems Like Part of its Name

The Dodge Ram 2500 blows away its competitors in so many areas the phrase ‘best in class’ seems like it should be emblazoned on the front of the vehicle right beside the Ram logo. Dodge HD trucks are built to set the bar for heavy duty hauling and towing, whether for a business or recreational needs. With 800 pounds of torque and the capacity to tow 17,980 pounds, the diesel motor can handle any trailer or load you want to throw at it. The large HEMI V8 gasoline engine generates a best-in-class 410 horsepower and load rating of almost two tons. Of course, the motor isn’t the only key in being able to haul and tow large loads. A class-exclusive five link coil rear suspension system helps reduce friction and provide a stable base that can handle all that weight.

Hard Working Doesn’t Mean Hard Riding

Just because the Dodge Ram 2500 is a beast when it comes to hauling and towing, doesn’t mean it rides like a tank. A smooth suspension and the availability of a luxurious interior keeps the work on the outside while providing a sophisticated ride with plenty of creature comforts. You’ll be in complete command of all the audio, communications and navigation if you choose the large 8.4-inch color touchscreen. Whether you use it for entertainment or as a necessary hub to your home office is up to you. Depending on the trim level you select, a variety of seating arrangements range from the functional to the extremely luxurious. Plush leather with ample bolsters in the Laramie and Limited are equal to that of any expensive luxury sedan. Choose the truck that fits your needs best when you search the inventory at the Chapman Payson Auto Center.

There’s still time for a couple of trips deep into the back country of the Mogollon Rim before the big snows hit, but just to be safe you should consider a Chevy Colorado 4×4 as your exploration vehicle of choice. Now’s the perfect time to score big on a 2017 Colorado with Chevy’s big end of the year sale, as dealers like Chapman Payson Auto Center are offering huge discounts on all previous model year brands. With a choice of two engines and running gear built to tame the toughest off-road courses, the Chevy Colorado ZR-2 is the perfect choice for your next Rim adventure.

ZR2 a Segment of One

There really is no competition to the Chevy Colorado ZR-2 in the midsize truck market. With a choice of a powerful 3.6L V6 gasoline engine or a Duramax 2.8 turbo-diesel that delivers incredible torque and efficiency, you’ll truly leave other trucks in the dust. Front and rear locking differentials are standard on the ZR-2, ensuring you’ll get traction from the wheel with the most grab. Multimatic DSSV shock absorbers help cushion the blow of an unseen rut or log when you’re out on the trail, and adjust automatically on the fly so even those monthly trips to Phoenix are as smooth riding as can be. Standard skid plates and rock sliders help protect your vital powertrain components and body from damage.

Z71 Offers Many Options

While the Z71 isn’t quite as geared up for supreme off-roading as the ZR2, it still delivers plenty of capability for hitting remote trails. Special models such as the Centennial and Midnight editions deliver some extra features to help your new Colorado stand out from the crowd. The Z71 Midnight is perfect for people who love a little secrecy in their lives. A black exterior, black bowtie emblem, black wheels and black grille let you travel in stealth mode during the night and makes for a mighty sophisticated look when you’re out on the town. Choose the Centennial edition for a classic look that comes in beautiful Centennial blue with plenty of chrome features on the doors, belt line and tow hooks. Of course you can always just add the four-wheel drive option to the standard Colorado and get an extremely capable truck starting at $28,995 for a 2018 model.
