The new RAM 1500 has been updated for 2013. It is available with five grill options and nice different trims levels. Check out new interior features on select models, including the new feature old radio-knob style rotary dial that shifts gears. It also touts an air-leveling suspension system, though critics have said it has a stiffer ride. In a tow-off, the RAM comes up short. The 3.6L V-6 can only tow 6500 LBS. with a maximum payload of 1524 LBS. while delivering 305 horsepower and 269 pound foot of torque.**

The Ford F-150 also has updated their look and offers 10 available trims from which you can choose.

This is a very special week. It’s Teacher Appreciation Week — a time when we pause to recognize and thank all of the amazing teachers who give of themselves, their knowledge, care and support.

Teachers help mold and shape our children as well as our future. Many teachers often work many more hours than they are are paid for, step up to provide supplies on their own dime in some schools, and teachers share their intelligence, wisdom and patience day after day.

The Reed family was thrilled to get to be part of a very special recognition fro the Humble Independent School Distrect Teacher of the Year, Joanna Grigsby. Randall and Sherry Reed, along with Chuck Kramer, GM/Managing Partner of Planet Ford in Humble,awarded a  brand new 2013 Ford Escape to Ms. Grigsby.

In addition, each teacher of the year nominee received a $1,000 gift certificate to use for their down payment on a new Ford car, truck or SUV. In addition, each nominee was offered a free maintenance package for free from Ford. Teachers do so much for our kids. This is one small way we can express our gratitude.

All of our dealerships, from Oklahoma City to Dallas and Garland to Houston, Spring and Humble, Texas, believe in partnering with schools in our communities to help support both our kids and our teachers.

Take a moment to thank a teacher this week for all they do for us, our kids and our community every day.
