5 Reasons Why Fishermen Love the Ram 1500 Outdoorsman
With summer around the corner and grouper season recently reopening in the Atlantic, fishing is on a lot of people’s mind. While fishermen use a variety of types and brands of equipment, the special-edition 2016 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman is the best truck for a fisherman.
Built for hunters and fishermen, the Ram Outdoorsman is equipped with all of the essentials and extras to make everyone’s fishing experience successful and memorable.
For all of those long days in uncomfortable hot temperatures out on the water, the Outdoorsman has a convenient remote-start, so fishermen can easily begin cooling off the car once they get back to the dock.
Intended to help fishermen explore new spots, the truck is equipped with an 8.4” touchscreen with UConnect and a top-of-the-line navigation system. Follow the fish!
Outdoorsman has a towing capacity of 10,180 lbs. and a maximum payload of 1,650 lbs — making it excellent for towing small boats.
While some fishermen can fish in their back yard, for many of fishermen there is a favorite spot that may be a longer drive. The Outdoorsman’s 3.0-liter ecodiesel V6 engine gets an average of 29 miles to the gallon when on the highway, making it one of the most fuel-efficient trucks on the road.
The Outdoorsman has two unique storage systems. First is the under floor storage in the truck’s cabin. Second is the Rambox Cargo Management System, which is located outside of the truck in the truck’s bed. The outdoor storage system is the perfect place to store your day’s catch or equipment. The storage system is built with anti-theft features and a drainage system where you can load it up with ice for drinks or the freshly filleted meat.
