Don't fear the sheepdog
Yes, that's where you don't have to touch your key at all. You put it in your pocket and forget about it. You walk up to the door, and grab the handle, and the doors detect the key in your pocket, and unlock. Push the start button on the dash, and drive. When you get where you're going you push a little button on the outside of the handle and the doors lock and alarm arms. I had this on my Charger but my Outdoorsman didn't, and I really liked not having to mess with keys on my car (it seem like such a small thing bit it's freaking awesome). I told my wife, as soon as they made it available on the Ram, I was upgrading my truck. In '14 I learned it was available on the Sport and Laramie. It was a very short time after that, when I traded the Outdoorsman for the Sport. I've got a ton of other nifty gadgets too, but that is easily my favorite one of them all.Enter N Go is that the keyless system?
Yeah, soccer mom 4wd works for me, since I'm not mud bogging, or rock crawling a $50K truck. That said though, I've had no problems getting anywhere with it. Deep snow, muddy trails, swampy fields, etc. It's gone everywhere my Outdoorsman went with no extra effort. I haven't even needed to use 4 low yet. I'm sure for the guys who do extreme off roading may be able to tell the difference, but both 4wd systems feel the same to me.Yes, the 4wd on the Rebel and Outdoorsman, and many other lower trims, is the more robust 4wd. It gives you a true lock when you do 4wd lock. On the models with the full time 4wd, even when you select 4wd lock it is not truly locked... it's what is known as "soccer mom 4wd". If you are doing serious off-roading, you want the full lock. That's why the Rebel is configured that way. My Laramie has the soccer mom 4wd, which is fine for me because I like the full-time in partly ice conditions and don't do any rock crawlin.
I don't really use 4 auto, but it is nice that my wife can turn it on and not worry if she's using it right. She doesn't need to remember to disengage it if she's driving on light/moderate snow, but ends up on less snowy roads. I can certainly see the soccer mom reference.
Ha ha, yeah, it's pretty rough. Funny, because I made some comment about the giant letters on the tailgate, and my buddy (with the Rebel) said "hey, I've got those on my tailgate". Doh!!!! Sorry dude, I wasn't trying to insult your new truck. But seriously why the giant letters on the tailgate of the new Rams? On the up side, I think they're just stuck on so they'd be easy enough to debadge if you didn't want them.That's the new limited. Fugly..... ....Then they went and made that abomination with the retarded letters in the back and oh so ugly grille.
