FCA Drive for Design Ram lorry competition winners chosen

Sunday, May 10th, 2020

Last month, Fiat Chrysler hold a 24-hour blueprint battle open to anyone in a universe peaceful to pattern a “wickedest and many outrageous” chronicle of a Ram truck. That peep foe was a sideshow to a categorical event, FCA’s annual Drive for Design competition open to high schoolers in a 10th, 11th, and 12th grades who were this year asked to pattern a Ram pickup for a future. The automaker’s pattern group judged a entries, led by Ram Truck and Mopar Exterior Design trainer Mark Trostle, with outward submit from Detroit sculptor Josh Welton.

The foe sealed on May 1, and the winners have been decided: Job Skandera, a 12th grader from Santa Clara, California took initial place with his Ram Magma; Vincent Piaskowski, an 11th grader from Birmingham, Michigan (home of Autoblog’s headquarters) warranted second place with an electric Ram; third place went to a Ram 1500 Series A by 11th grader Alex David Kirschmann from Auburn Hills, Michigan. Kirschmann clearly has a knack for this given he warranted second place in final year’s Drive for Design competition.

The Ram Magma’s name is suggested by a unclouded polycarbonate windows that abstain normal tinting for a bright red remoteness glaze “inspired by volcanic igneous rock.” The Magma also showcases mixed light bars stretched opposite a roof, a UV H2O cleanser complement between a cab and bed, and a stove embedded into a tailgate. Thankfully, a underline set includes an tractable cessation that lowers a cab to mortal levels of ingress.

The electric Ram protects a extremities with a lightweight graphene hardcoat, offers side storage outward a bed, some-more storage underneath a bed floor, a complicated avocation energy hire tucked into a bed wall, and a sandwiched tailgate can form a two-tier shelf complement for classification on a pursuit site. That tailgate gives us some genuine ideas.

The 1500 Series A is Judge Dredd’s lorry when he leaves his Lawmaster motorcycle during a office. The RamBox storage compartments and retractable tonneau cover would paint nauseating chronological touches when he’s using errands — and relocating everybody out of his approach — in Mega-City One.

Due to amicable distancing, a normal awards rite and revisit to FCA pattern HQ to speak with group members had to be canceled. Instead, a 3 tip place-getters will get “virtual networking and pattern sketching demonstrations with members of FCA pattern group along with electronic artistic collection of a trade.” Skandera will be sent a Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16 tablet, Piaskowski and Kirschmann will suffer Apple iPad Pros with Apple Pencils.
