These elements work together to reduce road noise and dampen the loud sounds that are common at job sites. 

RAM vehicles have both active and passive noise reduction systems. The windshield, for example, has acoustic glass with an extra layer that dampens road sounds when you are on the street. Furthermore, the hood is sculpted to direct the air over the truck rather than at the wipers. 

RAM trucks also come with an Active Noise Cancellation system. This unique feature is similar to the technology used to make high-end over-the-ear headphones. 

There are four microphones in the cabin to detect and define unwanted noises. The system then broadcasts the opposite sound over the truck's speakers. The result is that it literally cancels out the drone of the road or wind or the clanging of a job site. 

Finally, available air suspension not only helps create a smoother ride for passengers it also limits the sounds that occur when the car goes over cracks and bumps on the road. 

If you would like to experience this unique set of features, contact our St. Paul dealership today to schedule a test drive.

You need to ensure proper functionality by keeping the correct air pressure in your tires. What steps can you take to accomplish this? 

Most service centre technicians will suggest that tire pressure be between 30 and 35 PSI (pounds per square inch). You can find the manufacturer's recommendation for the maximum cold-weather reading on a sticker on the inside of the driver's door. 

To check the PSI number, you can use a pressure gauge, which you insert into the valve stem. Make sure to do this when the temperature is cold, or at least three hours after turning the vehicle off (to give the wheels time to cool down).

If you need professional assistance or are interested in a tire upgrade, you can contact our service centre.

When Do St. Paul Drivers Need to Flush Their Coolant Systems?

The liquid is effective, but it loses its strength over time. 

When should you change or add coolant, and how often do you need to flush the entire system to ensure it remains in perfect working order? 

A professional technician will want to check the system every two years or 50,000 km. Ideally, they can spot issues and flush and replace the coolant to avoid damaging buildup. 

Additionally, if your temperature gauge indicates that the engine is running hot, it could be a coolant issue. If the problem persists, you may need to consider visiting your service centre. 

You might also notice a sweet smell coming from under your hood. The main ingredient in coolant is ethylene glycol, which has a candy-like scent. If you notice this odour, it could be a sign of a leak or evaporation caused by excess heat.

If you notice these signs or if it is time for a regularly scheduled coolant system check, contact our St. Paul, AB service centre today to make an appointment.
2021 chrysler pacifica for sale in st paul abApple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility has become a selling point for new vehicles, including minivans and pickups. What exactly can you expect from this feature?

Apple CarPlay (pre-installed on iPhones with iOS 7.1 or higher) and Android Auto (downloadable from the Play Store) allow you to connect your device to your car's infotainment interface. You can then rely on the vehicle's touchscreen to view and use apps for things like navigation and music streaming. Also, you can take advantage of the voice controls for hands-free calling and texting. 

You need to connect your device to the media centre (though Android Auto can work directly on your phone, too). You can pair it using Bluetooth or via a USB. The advantage of a wired connection is that the port can also provide charging, so the battery doesn't drain. 

To see which vehicles have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, contact our St. Paul, AB dealership.
2021 jeep cherokee for sale in st paul abRain sensing wipers can help keep the windshield clear. Not only do these devices start when they see droplets of precipitation on the window, but they can adjust the speed so that the driver does not have to do it manually. 

The unique tool, available on vehicles such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, relies on special sensors. These are usually located on the top of the dash behind the windshield, and they contain infrared lights. The beams reflect off the glass, but the angle of the refraction is different when they hit water droplets. The unit sees this difference and activates the wipers. It can also detect the amount of precipitation and adjust the speed accordingly. 

Of course, drivers may have different preferences for their wipers. Most automated options possess settings that allow you to adjust the sensitivity. Alternatively, you can override the sensors and control everything manually. 

To see which vehicles offer these automated components, contact our Alberta, Canada dealership today.
