Cape Coral Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram 1500 Thanksgiving Travel

Looking forward to the holidays? At Cape Coral Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we sure are, and we were wondering what are you plans? Hosting Thanksgiving this year or doing a little travelling? For those of the latter, we were thinking a little advice on how to pack, be it clothes or food, couldn’t hurt. And sure, there are a lot of vehicles out there to choose from, but with all the holiday deals, we’d like to suggest the new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck.

Family Passenger Vehicle

A pickup truck? “My family doesn’t want to ride in that.” Oh, but they do – you just don’t know it yet. A competition hosted by the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA), known as the “Family Car Challenge”,  is held each year, and many Fiat Chrysler Automobiles won an award, including the new 2019 Ram 1500 light duty pickup truck, Chrysler Pacifica minivan, and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. The new Ram 1500 went home with the overall “Best Family Car” and “Best Family Pickup Truck” awards.

Why wouldn’t the new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck be labeled as a family vehicle? With a great combination of technology, functionality, drivability and family-friendly features, it’s only fitting. Starting at just $31,695 (plus destination fee), the 2019 Ram 1500 offers standard cloth and upscale leather for upholstery options, and there are five USB ports to keep everyone’s devices charged. Then there’s the available 12-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 4, optional Harman Kardon audio system with 19 speakers and 10-inch subwoofer, and plenty of safety features. Advanced safety features such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, advanced brake assist, forward-collision warning, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning-Plus, ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, ParkSense park assist with reverse stop, Rear Cross Path detection, and 9-1-1 Call Assist are all available.

Storing Baggage and Food

Space is not a problem with the 2019 Ram 1500. If we’re talking storage inside the truck, then consumers will find plenty of space throughout the cabin. For the 2019 model, there are more than twelve different storage combinations in the center console alone, with a wider docking area for optional wireless charging of a small tablet or smartphone, a deep storage tub designed for a 15-inch laptop and additional lined compartment under the center armrest, another tablet holder for rear passengers behind the two cup holders, and on high-tier trims, a secret cubby behind the glove box.

The 2019 Ram 1500 also has three truck beds to choose from for storing baggage and large items, like a fold-up table. With a max cargo volume of 61.5 cubic-feet and a maximum towing capacity of 11,610 pounds (when properly equipped), storage only gets better with the Class-Exclusive available RamBox Cargo Management System. Featuring a 115-volt outlet and relocated overhead lighting for improved illumination, the RamBox is weatherproof, lockable, and designed with drainable storage bins built into the bed rails (raised by 1.5 inches) for storing ice packs and keeping food cold. And since both bed rails come with the box, that’s double the storage room.

With so much space to store items for travel, and all the great features for families, travelling this Thanksgiving will be super simple. Stop by Cape Coral Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram today for your 2019 Ram 1500 or any of our other great FCA brand vehicles.
