2013 Ram Outdoorsman – NRA’s vehicle of the year

February 13th, 2013 by

The National Rifle Association (NRA)’s American Hunter magazine has declared Ram Outdoorsman its vehicle of the year (thanks, Jeff Crane). The magazine reported:

Take a tough-running, off-road go-getter and add unique bins for transporting firearms and other shooting gear, and you’ve got the Outdoorsman, Ram’s blockbuster hit in the pickup market. ? The revamped 1500 Outdoorsman retains everything that made it the premier huntin’/work/do-everything pickup, but will roll into market (October) with almost-starship-worthy technology that ensures this RAM [sic] is just as perfect for highway cruising as it is for beating a trail into the backcountry. And not just that: It can do so even while delivering way more horsepower and torque despite slashing fuel use by 20 percent.

Aside from mixing up a brand named after a hood ornament with random-access memory, it is a ringing endorsement of the new Ram pickups.

The Ram Outdoorsman has returned for 2013 and with Ram’s redesign for the 2013 model year it is looking to be the best edition yet. Like the rest of the 2013 Ram 1500 lineup the options are endless and fuel efficiency is #1 on the priority list. The Outdoorsman comes in 2 cab sizes (Quad and Crew), there are 3 difference engine/transmission combinations (we are most excited about the 8-speed automatic which is a segment first) then 32 additional options (not including color, wheel or fabric choices). Some of the highlights of the Outdoorsman include the standard towing upgrade, a rugged exterior appearance, and, best of all the brand-exclusive RamBox storage system.
