Trucks will be available for test drives during all three days of the festival, May 30-June 1, making Ram's off-road test track one of the many attractions for concert goers at the 32nd WYCD Downtown Hoedown.

The Downtown Hoedown is a three-day festival of country music on the grounds of Comerica Park, featuring entertainment by more than 40 artists on three stages, including headliners Dierks Bentley, Love and Theft, Tyler Farr and The Band Perry.

'We are proud to showcase the most innovative lineup of full-size pickup trucks, including the new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, at the 2014 Downtown Hoedown,' said Mike Dragojevic, Director of the Great Lakes Business Center - Chrysler Group LLC. 'Ram trucks and country music have always gone hand in hand. Bringing them together in our hometown is a recipe for a great time.'

Participants in the Ram Off-road Experience will be given rides in Ram 1500 and 3500 vehicles with a trained performance driver through an obstacle course that demonstrates the truck's capabilities. Obstacles include a 30-degree wedge to demonstrate traction; rocks and logs to demonstrate articulation and stability; bumps to demonstrate suspension; and a Ram Mountain to demonstrate the ground clearance, approach and departure angles.

There is no additional fee for Hoedown attendees to participate in the experience. Participants will receive a Ram T-shirt upon completion of a ride. The shirt will give them exclusive access to one of the Hoedown's best viewing areas.
