Why the RAM 1500

The 2016 RAM 1500 full-size pickup truck is the choice of buyers who want maximum gas mileage coupled to uncompromised capability and power. This thoroughly modern truck rides on active air suspension that can lower the vehicle for agile responsiveness and comfort. The RAM 1500 is the tough work truck that can act like a small limousine when required. While extracting class-leading mileage, it delivers impressive payload and towing capacities.

 Design & Mechanics

The RAM 1500 is without doubt the most handsome pickup truck on the planet. Its good looks complement its brawny construction and powerful engines. In addition to the 3.6L base engine, buyers can choose the 3.0L turbodiesel with 420 lb-ft of torque or the 5.7L Hemi V8 packing 395 horsepower. All engines can mate to the super-smooth 8-speed automatic transmission, a class exclusive. The 2016 RAM 1500 maintains the popular big-rig styling, with a bold chrome grille and the Rambox storage system integrated into the rear fender tops. The exterior also features LEDs for the taillights and turn signals, as well as many attractive wheels to choose from. 2WD is standard and 4WD is an option.


RAM 1500 owners are the first to mention how pleasant it is to climb into the truck, take a seat and drive off. Part of the reason is the quality build level, with very tight tolerances and panel gaps. Whether a buyer chooses the Quad Cab or Crew Cab configurations, rear seat passengers have oodles of legroom to stretch out and recover from a hard day's work or play. Drivers can elicit over 300 readouts from the 1500's Multiview Screen located on the center cluster of the instrument panel. The 10-way power driver's seat is a popular upgrade that maximizes comfort on long trips. All the materials used within the cabin are high quality, giving this work truck a surprisingly luxurious feel.


The generous list of standard equipment includes a locking and removable tailgate, automatic headlights, cruise control, hill-start assist and USB capability. Various trim levels can add luxury touches like leather seating and handsome wheel options. The available Uconnect Access Infotainment System presents an intuitive interface on its 8.4-inch touchscreen. Other available features include a heated steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, air suspension, engine stop-start, power-adjustable pedals and a 115V household power outlet. Rear seating is a 40/20/40 split bench or a 60/40 split folding seat.


The advanced front multistage airbags sense crash severity and inflate with different levels of force. Electronic Stability Control combines ABS brakes, All-Speed Traction Control and a stability system to provide all-weather capability of front-wheel drive with the performance of rear-wheel drive. It figures out when to hit the brakes on one or more wheels, and when to lower engine torque in demanding driving situations. Available safety features include ParkView rear backup camera, ParkSense front/rear park assist system, Remote Proximity Keyless Entry and Start, and a tire-pressure monitoring system.
