shopping for a new pickup in the brand Ram from Valparaiso dealers
want a heavy-duty truck they can use for hauling and towing. The
manufacturer realized over the past several years that nearly all of
these consumers have no interest in a manual transmission. Thus, the
company discontinued the manual transmission option as of 2019.
Problems With Automatic Transmissions
Until relatively recently, manual transmissions were better for heavy use. Automatics were prone to overheating while towing an RV or a large boat up a steep incline, for example. Now, when consumers want a vehicle with an automatic transmission that can handle this type of work, they might buy a new Ram in Valparaiso. With demand for manual transmissions so low in this country, vehicle manufacturers have begun to concentrate fully on making improvements to automatics.
in Automatic Transmissions
large majority of U.S. drivers have long preferred an automatic
transmission. Pickup trucks continued to be sold with manual
transmissions after the equipment was discontinued in most other
passenger vehicles. By the early years of the 21st Century, however,
manufacturers had improved automatic transmissions so much that they
performed just as well as stick-shift models in full-size pickups.
In fact, automatic transmissions in pickup trucks now operate more smoothly than their stick-shift counterparts. They easily downshift when traveling uphill with less jerking and lurching than the average driver manages with a manual shift. New Ram pickups can be purchased at Grieger’s Motor Sales Inc. after viewing the inventory .
