RAM® Truck Hemi® UNDERHOOD Now Available for Order VMAC's Latest UNDERHOOD Air Compressor Broadens Product Range

Nanaimo, B.C. — With VMAC's latest UNDERHOOD kit going into production soon, dealers now have an opportunity to provide an UNDERHOOD air compressor for the latest model of RAM® trucks with Hemi® 6.4L and 5.7L engines. In the last year 49,015 new RAM trucks were sold in the United States for commercial purposes. RAM has a large and growing base of very loyal customers who have been asking for a VMAC UNDERHOOD system to be available on this engine. This system is a continuation of VMAC's support of the RAM truck. Last year, VMAC announced the UNDERHOOD for RAM trucks with the Cummins engine.

"RAM trucks with the Hemi 6.4L and 5.7L are important vehicles in the North American commercial truck industry," says Dan Hutchinson, VMAC Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "They are known for their strength and reliability, just like the UNDERHOOD, so we want to provide great products for it."

The system provides the same reliable, compact power the UNDERHOOD is known for. It weighs just 150 lbs and leaves behind no footprint at all on the truck while providing 70 CFM and up to 175 psi. Its performance is unrivalled, providing reliable power in the heat of the Australian Outback and the frozen Alaskan Slope.

This system is now available for pre-order. For photos or information about this system, visit www.vmacair.com/hemi or call 1-866-271-2956.
