The track will feature a mountain that is 23-foot tall with 45-degree approach and departure angles.

Ram Truck Territory combines key vocational capabilities, such as towing, payload, torque, and technology, with off-road capabilities, like traction, articulation, and suspension, to provide consumers a comprehensive in-truck experience.

Professional drivers will provide auto show attendees with an exciting ride as they go through a series of steel culverts that showcases ride handling capability and suspension options. Riders will also feel the traction and experience hill-descent technology on the iconic Ram Mountain, a 13-foot high, 30-foot long course element with 30-degree approach and departure angles. Technology will be displayed as the drivers highlight the 360-degree camera technology, class-exclusive four-corner air ride suspension, multifunction tailgate, 12.1-inch touchscreen, and acoustic NVH features.
