"Racing for RPM for a whole season is a dream come true," said Price. "The team's results speaks for themselves and it's a very special organization that makes me feel like I'm with family. I'm incredibly grateful for the support of Clyde, Justin and the whole team."
Motocross and UTV champion Sara Price has announced today that she will be joining the RPM team and will be campaigning a truck in the Trophy Truck Spec class of the SCORE International desert racing series.
Sara began racing dirt bikes at the at the age of eight and continued on to collect 19 amateur titles and medaled in Women’s Super X at the 2010 X Games. To date Sara still holds the record as the most winning female amateur. A versatile competitor, Sara raced UTVs in the 2013 WORCS series before moving to the Lucas Oil Regional Series in 2015. She grabbed a second place overall in the production side-by-side championship series that year. Sara also finished the Terracross Championship undefeated in the same year. When not competing Sara works as a profession stunt driver for film and television, both on two wheels and four.

It seems today that every automotive company is rushing to get in on the electrification race. Jaguar is the latest to pump out an all-electric sport utility with the formal introduction of the new 2019 I-PACE.
The I-PACE will be available in three trims to start, S, SE, and HSE along with a First Edition that will be limited to the first production year. All-wheel drive is standard as is a 90kWh battery. Powering two Jaguar-designed motors, the 90kWh battery pack will deliver an estimated range of up to 240 miles, and will clock in a 0-60 mph time of just 4.5 seconds on its way to a limited top speed of 124 miles per hour. Running low on juice is no issue so long as you have a 100kW DC fast charger available, which will return the vehicles batteries from empty to 80 percent charged in just 40 minutes.
Sleek and aerodynamic are the name of the game with the 2019 I-PACE, which takes inspiration from the C-X75 supercar concept. A low hood, sweeping roofline, and squared-off rear help the I-PACE achieve an extremely low 0.29 coefficient of drag. The interior is exquisitely appointed, as you would expect from Jaguar, and can be outfitted with fine-grain Windsor leather, premium Kvadrat textile, or a more basic Luxtec material. A panoramic glass roof is standard and is designed to absorb infrared light, which in turn helps keep the cabin cool without the need to block the view.
Pricing will be announced tomorrow, March 6th 2018, at the Geneva Motor Show.

“The I-PACE’s electric powertrain offered us unprecedented design freedom,” said Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design. “Starting with a clean sheet enabled the dramatic cab-forward profile, unique proportions and exceptional interior space – yet it is unmistakably a Jaguar. We wanted to design the world’s most desirable EV, and I’m confident we’ve met that challenge.”
"In launching the all-new 2019 Ram 1500, we knew it was important to offer class-leading features and technology. But it's also important to offer our great product at a competitive price,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Truck Brand -- FCA. "We feel that we've delivered the right no-compromise mix that Ram Truck customers will appreciate."
After unveiling the company’s new pickup at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit Ram has today released the full pricing structure for the 2019 Ram 1500. The 2019 Ram 1500 in Tradesman trim and configured with a Quad Cab, 3.6L Pentastar V-6, and two-wheel drive will start at $31,695. On the high end a Crew Cab Limited with four-wheel drive, a 5.7L Hemi V-8, and a long bed will set potential buyers back $57,690.
Fans interested in the Ram 1500 Rebel, the company’s light-duty off-road masterpiece, will need to pony up $44,695 for a Quad Cab V-6 or $47,495 for a Crew Cab. Dropping four-wheel drive from the Crew Cab lowers the price to $43,995.
Of course this is just the starting price, without available options and extras. Adding the company’s 5.7L Hemi engine to the Tradesman, Big Horn, and Rebel is an additional $1,195 and the eTorque mild-hybrid system tacks another $800 on top of that. Destination cost has also increased to $1,645 for the lower 48 and Alaska, and $1,695 for Hawaii.
If the current accessory pricing model holds from 2018 to 2019 we can expect a trailer brake controller to add about $300, the anti-spin rear differential adds $435, a 32-gallon fuel tank is $445, a tri-fold tonneau cover is $595, and the Ram Box cargo management system tacks on $1,295.
Overall we feel that pricing for the new 2019 Ram 1500 is right in line with the rest of the current ½-ton class. And even when fully outfitted is dollar-for-dollar the best buy in this market.
