Car shopping doesn’t stop just because citizens have been encouraged or even ordered to stay home. Since the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic does not threaten our ability to keep our website live, anyone can visit our site and keep shopping. Even if our customers don’t get the hands-on experience during quarantine, social distancing and self-isolation they are used to getting at Automax Truck and Car Center, we can do the best we can with the internet.
For the safety of our staff and our customers, Automax Truck and Car Center will be closed until April 11th to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and limit infections. This complies with the Governor’s executive order, but it does not mean the dealership is totally closed, as our service department can be opened by appointment.
If you’re wondering what you can do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) during the pandemic, just stay at home and practice good hygiene. Social distancing is a good precaution, but healthy people should spend as much time as possible home, away from potential infection.

Edmunds.com reviews just about every car you can think of as soon as it comes out. Every model year the site posts a list of what they call the best car in every category, from hybrids to SUVs, and from hatchbacks to minivans. The truck segment is populated almost entirely by generations-old respected pickup truck names, but for the year 2020, Edmunds.com named the Ram 1500 the Top-Rated truck for 2020. Below are a few of the reasons Edmunds picked this truck over the competitions
Few names in the engine world have garnered a reputation for power like the HEMI® has. First created by Chrysler in the early 1950s, the engines pioneered the use of hemispherical combustion chambers.

Because HEMI® engines are so good at producing torque and horsepower, pickup truck buyers should be concerned with whether they get the kind of power they need.
The Heavy-Duty Ram 2500 truck is built for far more than just towing. When you can’t just hitch up a trailer and pull, you need a truck that is able to shoulder the weight of any kind of load you can fit in it. The 2020 Ram 2500 hits the road ready to do just that. Whether you need to haul firewood, brick, shingles, scrap metal, rebar, stone, dirt, ATVs, or appliances, the Ram 2500 is built for the task.

Fans of the Ram 1500 got so used to how the Ram 1500 looked and felt that Ram decided to continue the well-loved fourth generation of the pickup truck while they launched a new fifth-generation design. The fourth-generation continues as the Ram 1500 Classic while the new fifth-generation is still simply called the Ram 2500.
