It’s always great to hear about women in engineering. Previously in the “How I Drive” series, we’ve featured female engineer Rebecca Seiler over at Ford, and today I’m excited to introduce the Chief Engineer of the Ram 1500, Elizabeth Krear. Check out her driving style:
How I Drive | Elizabeth Krear
Location: Bloomfield Hills, MI.
Daily Driver: 2015 Granite Crystal Metallic Ram 1500 Laramie Limited Crew Cab 4×4 EcoDiesel
Time Spent Driving/day: 60 – 90 minutes
Road Most Traveled: I-75
Driving Style in One Word: Responsible
- 29 mpg EcoDiesel engine
- RamBox storage system (perfect size and access for grocery bags)
- Hands-Free voice activated UConnect so I can make/take phone calls and messages without moving my hands off the steering wheel
- My family and I also very much enjoy front and rear heated seats
Driving Tunes: I enjoy a wide variety of music and therefore love to “seek” depending on my mood. Having the controls at my fingertips on the steering wheel makes it that much more convenient.
Time-saving technique: Hands free UConnect allows me to conference in on meetings during my commute so I can maximize my day – my truck often becomes an extension of my office. I also confidently use my Navigation system and Points of Interest. My garage was built in the 60’s and the door height doesn’t allow for standard pickup trucks. My Ram 1500 has air suspension, which can lower the truck, allowing it to fit. That keeps ice and snow out of my field of vision, enabling a quicker commute in bad weather.
Hanging from rear view: Nothing
