“Most of our Ram Truck owners proudly participate in hunting and fishing,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Not only can we speak directly to their passions through these television programs, but we also demonstrate our commitment to the outdoors and outdoors enthusiasts.”
“No one appreciates the power of a ‘Brand’ as much as we do at Mossy Oak,” said Ronnie “Cuz” Strickland, EVP of Mossy Oak. “The folks at Ram Trucks are as proud of their brand as we are, and rightfully so. To have Ram step up to communicate with hunters and outdoorsmen through our Mossy Oak programming speaks volumes about their commitment to the outdoors and we are extremely proud to partner with Ram to spread their message.”
Working with Mossy Oak, Ram Truck and Mopar are also exploring new product features, accessories and merchandise that appeal to hunters and sportsmen who own trucks.
Ram Heavy Duty owner demographics illustrate a passion for the outdoors: 47 percent hunt, 57 percent fresh water fish, 33 percent salt water fish, 36 percent own power boats and the 37 percent tow camping trailers.
In response, Ram engineers have worked hard to build Ram Trucks that are appealing to hunters and outdoorsmen. Among the Ram’s friendly features:
* Outside: RamBox cargo management system with dry, lockable, lighted and drainable (easy cleaning) exterior storage bins
* Inside: hidden, easy-to-clean in-floor storage
* New interiors offer refinement and long-distance hunting trip comfort
* Mega Cab remains the largest in the industry; well suited to carrying a full-size hunting party
* Proven and reliable powertrains including the 5.7-liter HEMI and 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel
Master Sportsmans Tour
In March, the Ram Truck Brand announced a 26-state, 50-venue Master Sportsman’s Tour designed to give 1.7 million hunters and fishermen an up-close look at the all-new, redesigned 2010 Ram Heavy Duty pickup. The Ram Truck Brand in cooperation with dealers in regions with a heavy concentration of hunting, fishing and boating participants will be setting up camp at many of America’s top outdoors expositions and showing off their trophy-winning Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty pickup trucks.
Golden Bullseye Award
American Hunter magazine awarded the Ram 1500 a prestigious Golden Bullseye Award in recognition as its 2009 Vehicle of the Year, calling it “the complete package.” Editors added that “what clinched the award for the Ram was the new RamBox cargo management system. These dry, lockable storage compartments provide the perfect spaces for your hunting gear … without compromising bed space.”
Rammunition Monster Truck
Also in March, Mossy Oak, Ram Trucks and Hall Brothers Racing announced a new paint scheme for the Rammunition monster truck featuring Mossy Oak’s newest pattern: Break-Up Infinity.
