2021 Ram Heavy Duty | Greenbrier Motor Company | Lewisburg, WV

The most grueling jobs demand a 2021 Ram Heavy Duty. With a best-in-class 37,100-pound gooseneck towing capacity, the latest Ram 3500 HD makes hard work seem easy.

When it came time to build the 2021 model, Ram worked with Cummins® to improve the 6.7-liter High Output Turbo Diesel engine, improving torque by 75 lb-ft to bring the total up to 1,075 lb-ft, a staggering figure.

Coupled with a new in-house gooseneck hitch design, the 2021 Ram Heavy Duty ensures its engine’s powerful capabilities can be fully exploited, enabling the truck to tow the heaviest trailers in the industry.

Towing a heavy trailer, however, is not just about sheer capability. New for 2021, the Ram Heavy Duty also comes with a digital rearview mirror that can show you a real-time video feed of the view behind the trailer, free of obstructions. At any time, you can revert it back to a traditional reflective mirror.

The 2021 Ram Heavy Duty is more than a powerful truck. It’s also luxurious, with extremely spacious and comfortable seats, a clean and modern design, beautiful trim details, acoustic glass and active noise cancellation technologies, and top-notch detailing.

Once, hardworking trucks came with few creature comforts. The 2021 Ram Heavy Duty shows that segment-leading capability can also come with a luxury-car-level interior. Take a closer look at this incredible pickup truck at Greenbrier Motor Company in Lewisburg, West Virginia.

Top 5 Signs of Tire Wear to Keep Yourself Safe on the Road

5 Signs of Tire Wear in Lewisburg, WV

Your vehicle’s tires are the only part of your car making contact with the road, so it’s vital that you take proactive and consistent care of them. These tips will help you easily find signs of wear and tear on tires so you can drive with a renewed peace of mind.

Inflation Levels

Overinflation leads to higher pressure exerted in the center of the tires while underinflation places more stress and pressure onto the edges of the tire. A quick visual inspection and checking each tire’s pressure with a gauge indicator will help prolong their lifespans. Be sure to fill your car’s tires to the manufacturer-suggested PSI, which is typically included in the owner’s manual or on the driver’s side door jamb.

Disproportionate Wear

Visual inspections will also help you notice if some parts of the vehicle’s tires appear to be more worn out than others. Uneven tread levels can indicate misaligned tires.

Erratic Tread Wear

Erratic, seemingly random wear on your car’s tire tread is called “cupping” and it might be a sign that the tires are imbalanced. It can also signal that shock absorbers or other parts might need to be replaced as well.

Vibrations and Noises

If you notice unusual vibrations or other out-of-place noises while driving, it could be a sign that you have an imbalanced tire, a tire with a flat tread spot, or that the tire’s belt has separated.

Car Pulling

Your car pulling to one side could mean that you may have underinflated or damaged tires, or that the vehicle needs an alignment done.

If you see or experience any of these issues with your vehicle, don’t hesitate to contact us at Greenbrier Motor Company. Our highly trained staff is prepared to tackle a variety of tire-related issues and will get you safely back on the road in no time.

Dodge and Ram recently outperformed other mass-market brands in the 2020 J.D. Power APEAL Study earning first and second place, respectively. These impressive results show that drivers are more emotionally attached to their Dodge and Ram vehicles than to other vehicles.

Dodge earned a score of 872 in the APEAL Study, which is just point higher than the Ram score. Each brand far-surpassed the mass-market brand average of 838.

In the competitive Midsize Sporty Car segment, the Dodge Challenger had the highest ranking, while the Ram 1500 topped the Large Light-duty Pickup category.

2020 Dodge Charger in Lewisburg, WV

Dodge took top honors in the J.D. Power 2020 Initial Quality Study. This is the first time a domestic car maker has earned first place, ranking ahead of 31 competitors in this survey that looks at new vehicle reliability.

Problems in the first 90 days

J.D. Powers looks at problems that are reported by owners during the first three months after buying a new 2020 car or truck. The fewer problems, the better a car and its brand perform in the 2020 IQS. The test was redesigned this year to look at new technology that is included in today’s vehicles including infotainment technology, screens and controls, driver assistance, problems under the hood, exterior and interior issues and heating and cooling systems. Dodge’s score of 136 problems experienced per 100 vehicles garnered the top honors, a first for an American car line.

Manufacturing award

The FCA’s manufacturing facility in Toluca, Mexico, where the Dodge Journey is built, also won a Gold Plant Award for quality production. In previous years, Japanese auto manufacturers have gotten the top marks in the IQS awards, but domestic car makers have been climbing in the ranking lately, with Dodge and the FCA leading the charge.
