2017-Dodge-Ramcharger-Concept

“Dodge Ramcharger” – 2017

Full-size pickups are back at it again and thus the 2017 Dodge Ramcharger is getting ready to roll out.

This car is one of the rare SUVs which adds electric locking features and rear differentials to its offer and setup.

Exterior Design: Outside parts 2017 Dodge Ramcharger are highlighted by enormous 33 inch wheels for going dirt road romping. The truck also adds 3 link front suspensions which also provides axle articulation and additional flexibility for the vehicle. This means that the truck has been equipped with  high joints movements to axle mount that comes from the control arm part.

There is an electronic sway bar added which further enhances flexibility for the vehicle and all of it results with the front axels be moved independently from the frame of the truck and also adding more off road ability to the truck.

 

Interior Design: The best part of the new 2017 Dodge Ramcahrger is that it is getting a completely new interior upgrade.

The crown jewel of the dashboard is the new 8.4 inch touch screen which is going to upgrade the technology of the truck and which you can use for various purposes and checking out different information about the vehicle and your driving.

As the truck comes available in three different trims:

  • The Laramie one is the vehicle which is equipped with more luxury equipment and has more comfort to it than the other vehicles.
  • The SLT one has more utility to it as it has an advanced off-road package.

They have also made sure that all of the three trims are completely different from each other as each one of them has distinctive features that differentiates them.

 

2017 Dodge Ramcharger engine and performance: This year the 2017 Dodge Ramcharger is going to offer a very competitive engine package which will shift it closer to some of the bigger names when it comes to power.

A 6.4-l HEMI V8 unit with 16 valves looks frightening. This beast under the hood of the 2017 Dodge Ramcharger will be capable to produce 440 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque at 5.600 rpm.

Augmented Reality

Technology Keeps coming – Await for the One That Makes Difference!!

In the technology world, the latest advancement is only as good as the next thing coming down the line. The auto industry is constantly bringing us new technologies, whether it be for safety, entertainment, usefulness or simply for pure innovation.

 

Nanotechnology And Nanomaterials

practical-use-of-nanomaterials-in-plastics-4-728

Nanotechnology will help automotive manufacturers make the paint last longer, decrease the rust factor, make windows easier to clean, make stronger tires, and make bodies lighter weight and thus, more fuel efficient. You’ll see these and more advances in the cars of the future, courtesy of nanotechnology.

Auto companies are using nanotechnology and nanomaterials to improve the performance of new cars and meet consumer needs along with regulatory requirements.

 

Advanced Materials

The development of new materials that are technically and economically viable is no small endeavor. The risks, costs, and time involved in research are usually so high that only governments or private consortia can bear them.

Automotive Carbon Fiber Composites

Carbon Fiber Composites are capable of providing the lightweighting needed for fuel efficiency, and the mechanical strength required for safety. After a long development cycle, this material is now being widely used by the military, in commercial aircraft, and in the automotive industry.

Carbon fiber composites are too expensive for high-volume automotive production. The manufacturing processes can’t yet meet stringent automotive requirements for repeatability and production speed. The myriad combinations of fiber grades, forms, tow sizes and resin types creates an overwhelming number of options that are, to date, inadequately understood and characterized.

Aerogel

Aerogel is a synthetic porous ultralight material derived from a gel, in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with a gas. The result is a solid with extremely low density and low thermal conductivity. Nicknames include frozen smokesolid smoke,solid air, or blue smoke owing to its translucent nature and the way light scatters in the material. It feels like fragile expanded polystyrene to the touch. Aerogels can be made from a variety of chemical compounds.

A new version of aerogel — a strange smoky-looking material that’s among the world’s lightest solids — is 500 times stronger than previous versions. A thick piece could support the weight of a car, yet a thin piece easily bends. The material could be used in everything from Mars landers to refrigerators, scientists say.

Gorilla Glass

Automakers around the world are working to reduce the weight of their vehicles to meet strict mobile emissions regulations. Corning Gorilla Glass for Automotive enables a weight reduction in glazing of more than thirty percent versus conventional soda lime glass. Corning Gorilla Glass for Automotive can be used in all openings of a vehicle including windshields, sidelites, sunroofs and backlites. Corning Gorilla Glass can also be used in automotive touch/control panels.

Best Tips To Avoid Car Problems On Road Trips !

Road trips provide an adventurous and fun experience. If you are planning a road trip with your friends or family, then you need to ensure that your car raises up to the occasion. 

Here are few steps to avoid Car Problems which may occur when you going for the trip:

Check the Tires

tire

Tyres are the only source of contact between your car and the road – your car’s stopping distance, cornering and fuel efficiency are all affected by the condition of your tyres. Under-inflated tires not only slow your road trip down, they pose a danger to to life as well. Most people do not notice their tires until one of them goes flat.

Check the Breaks

The braking system on most people’s cars goes unnoticed since it is “out of sight, out of mind.” That is, until a problem crops up, which is usually in the form of the proverbial grinding when you push the brake pedal.

Experts say the best prevention for brake failure is routine maintenance and inspection, and that drivers should pay attention to their brakes with their feet and their ears.

For example, if you hear grinding or squealing, take your car off the road and have it looked at by a certified mechanic. If the brake pedal feels different than it did the day before, do similarly.

Safety Measures

safety

Safety begins when you pack. To help avoid becoming a target, do not dress in a way that could mark you as an affluent tourist. Expensive-looking jewelry, for instance, can draw the wrong attention.

Always try to travel light. You can move more quickly and will be more likely to have a free hand. You will also be less tired and less likely to set your luggage down, leaving it unattended.

The electrical system

Electrical

Before you set out on the road trip, the vehicle’s horn, windshield wipers and the interior as well as the exterior lights should be in proper working condition. Carry a few extra bulbs and fuses with you as you may need them at some point. Change the vehicle’s car blades as well and make sure that the air conditioner is properly working.

  • Check the Battery.
  • Check that all of the lights come on when they are supposed to.
  • Check your headlights (dim and bright).
  • Check your brake lights and the signal lights

 

Keep a Roadside Emergency Kit

roadside-emergency-kit

Being stuck by the side of the road is a helpless feeling. Before leaving home, put together an emergency kit with items that at the very least will get your vehicle patched up until you can get to the nearest mechanic.

Here are some basics:

  • Jumper cables
  • Roadside flares
  • 2 or 3 quarts of oil
  • Gallon of anti-freeze
  • Can of tire inflator
  • Duct tape
  • Flashlight
  • Toolkit containing screwdriver, awl and wire cutters
  • Bottled water
  • Paper towels
