Dodge Ram Concept by AEV

Η American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) είναι μια αμερικάνικη εταιρία από το Michigan, που βελτιώνει τετρακίνητα οχήματα για σκληρό off-roading από το 1997. Στη φετινή SEMA θα φέρει ένα νέο concept που βασίζεται στο Ram 2500 Crew Cab Diesel.


Το συγκεκριμένο Dodge σηματοδοτεί την απαρχή βελτίωσης αυτοκινήτων της συγκεκριμένης μάρκας, και εν αντιθέσει με τα Jeep Wrangler by AEV τα οποία είναι εξαιρετικά ικανά εκτός δρόμου, αλλά έχουν περιορισμένο ωφέλιμο φορτίο, το pickup της Ram θα παρέχει πολύ μεγαλύτερη ωφέλιμο φορτίο και δυνατότητες ρυμούλκησης, με μικρές παραχωρήσεις για τις υπόλοιπες δυνατότητες του.

AEV Ram Concept Vehicle – SEMA Show 2013

The vehicle: 2014 Ram 2500 Crew Cab Diesel

The concept: Since 1997, American Expedition Vehicles has been on the cutting edge of the 4WD industry, constantly pushing the boundaries of design and innovation. AEV recognized that there is a void in the industry for customers who require a vehicle that is very capable off-road, has exceptional handling characteristics and ride quality but also has a large cargo capacity and is able to satisfy the demands of a heavy towing. AEV felt that the Ram was the ideal vehicle platform to fill this void. The AEV Ram Concept is gear toward the outdoorsman-someone who requires a capable vehicle off-road, but still requires the larger size, higher towing capacity and increased payload of a ¾ or 1-ton pickup truck. AEV set out to achieve these goals by breaking the mold of the traditional “lifted truck” methodology and utilized their engineering and design expertise to create a complete vehicle package that includes components that are designed to work in harmony with each other in both style and functionality. The result is a great looking truck with high ground clearance, a low center of gravity and superior front end protection.
