In this campaign, RAM gave five popular country singers a Ram 1500 for six months. Now, these trucks are being auctioned off to the highest bidder to raise funds for different veteran charties. The most recent truck to be auctioned off belonged to Billy Currington, and the funds raised will go to Team Rubicon

Team Rucbicon helps to unite the skills and experiences of military veterans with professionals in the medical field. Together, these dedicated people will be apart of rapidly deployed emergency response teams.

Jeep surprised the auto industry this week by revealing their yet unnamed midsize SUV. The automaker will be bringing back the Cherokee name, but with a much different vehicle to bear it. The new Jeep Cherokee will fill the same midsize SUV role the Cherokee of 10 years ago used to, but has abandoned the boxy frame for a round and sleek crossover.

This new Cherokee will replace the discontinued Jeep Liberty, which was a boxy and aggressive-looking vehicle. The new Jeep in Tacoma will now have a vehicle that looks like no other. Revealing the exterior and highlighting the front end, Jeep released a few photos, showing just how unique this new Jeep SUV will be.
