Ram Truck will end its Road to the Ram Jam all-star country music series with a bang, by auctioning Easton Corbin's 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn.
Fans will have a chance to bid on Corbin's truck March 18, as all the proceeds will go toward the Freedom Alliance Scholarship fund, which awards college scholarships to children whose parents have served in the military.
Corbin said that the purpose is to help other people and he is encouraging his fans to bid. He said not only do they get a great truck but they also know all the process are going to help well-deserving young people attend college.
At the start of the Ram Jam series, in addition to Corbin, Ram issued a one year lease for a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Truck to Kellie Pickler, Brantley Gilbert, Billy Currington and Zach Brown Band. As Corbin's is the last to be auctioned, all the other trucks sold from anywhere between $34,552 for Gilbert's truck, to $39,300 for Brown's truck. Ram is proud to help military children attend college.
"All of the proceeds from the auction of Corbin's Ram truck, are going to help the sons and daughters of American heroes achieve their dream of a college education," Tom Kilgannon, president of Freedom Alliance, said. "Every scholarship we give out is a reminder to the student that their parent's sacrifice will never be forgotten by a grateful nation."
Pick up trucks show strong sales in February
As pick up trucks sold in high numbers in February, all owners should look into Husky Liners® truck floor mats. These liners will ensure a truck's interior is kept as clean as the day they pulled off the lot, whether they're helping transport construction materials to the next job or just simply taking the kids to school.
TrueCar.com reported that while new light vehicle sales reached 1.2 million units in February, up 5.7 percent compared to this time last year and up 16.5 percent compared to January, pick up trucks showed considerable gains.
"Automakers enjoyed a month of ideal conditions for profitability in February with incentives down nearly four percent and sales up double digits compared to year ago levels," said Kristen Anderson , analyst for TrueCar.com. "We expect incentives spending to track within a narrow range the rest of the year as the supply of vehicles and consumer demand are forecasted to increase at similar levels."
