Auto Advice For Calgary Consumers

How an Electronic Locking Rear Differential Can Save You From Getting Stuck in Calgary, AB

(Posted on Jan 28, 2021 at 12:33PM by Josh Lew)
ram 1500 trucks for sale near me in calgary albertaElectronic-locking rear differential systems - known as ELockers for short - provide extra torque and traction by causing both the back wheels to turn at the same speed.  

This feature is typically for off-road driving. Trail-specific trucks, like the 2021 Ram 1500 Rebel, have an ELocker. However, it can also prove useful when a driver needs extra grip and power because of ice or snow.

Of course, other traits, such as all-terrain tires (the 1500 Rebel has LT275/70R18E OWL treads) and a 4x4 drivetrain, can help you avoid the worst-case scenario in challenging conditions. 

To find out which vehicles offer the unique ELocker system, connect with our Calgary, AB dealership. 

Why Get a Vehicle with Shiftable Four-Wheel Drive in Calgary, AB?

2021 jeep compass for sale in calgary ab4x4 can make negotiating Calgary roads during the winter much easier. Though some vehicles rely on permanent all-wheel drive, others have shiftable AWD. 

For example, Jeep Active Drive I is standard on 2021 Cherokee and Compass models. This design has full-time FWD, but you can engage the rear axle when needed to get extra traction. Many Ram pickups boast a similar option. 

What is the advantage of a changeable drivetrain? 

Since FWD cars and trucks require less power, it leads to better fuel efficiency. Engaging the AWD system only when you need it can save money at the gas pump.

Why Would You Choose a Diesel Engine for your Ram 3500 Pickup Truck in Calgary, AB?

(Posted on Jan 14, 2021 at 04:19PM by Josh Lew)
ram 3500 for sale in calgary albertaRam 3500 pickups offer both gas and diesel engines. Here is how the powertrain options compare for the 2020 model year.

6.4L gas-powered HEMI V8 
Torque: 429 lb.-ft
Towing: 8,260 kg

6.7L Cummins Turbodiesel I-6 with available High Output (H/O) design
Torque: 850 - 1,000 lb.-ft
Towing: up to 15,921 kg

Which option should you choose? 

As you can see, diesel provides more torque, which can be useful for towing or other heavy-duty tasks. Not every truck owner will need this type of muscle, but those who do can upgrade to the Cummins engine from the standard HEMI.
