Why is the Ram 1500 the best? "It starts with fuel economy and ride quality. There is a whole lot more to say about the 2016 Ram 1500 than just fuel economy and ride quality. A whole lot more!" said Mr. Padgett of The Car Connection
You have a choice of power. The Pentastar 3.6liter V6 comes standard with 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. The V6 will get up to 25MPG during highway driving. For more towing power, the 5.7liter HEMI V8 is available, offering 395 horsepower with 410 pound-ft of torque. You can tow up to 10,650 pounds with a maximum payload of 1,820 pounds with the HEMI equipped Ram 1500. The new 3.0liter turbocharged V6 EcoDiesel engine has 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque and is exclusive to this segment. With the EcoDiesel, you can tow up to 9,200 pounds, while getting up to 29MPG.

To assist with the load, the Ram 1500 can be equipped with Active-Level four-corner air suspension to add to the class-exclusive real coil set-up. It is a self-leveling system that lowers automatically at highway speeds to reduce airflow underneath the truck. It can also be lowered for easier access to the truck when parked. The air suspension system could be raised when an obstacle needs to be cleared underneath the truck. There is also the class-exclusive Ram Box storage system. A Ram Box on each side of the bed eliminates the need for a tool box and enables quicker and lockable space for the tools you need.
You have made the right choice going with the Ram 1500. However, there is an even important choice to make - which trim level? There are plenty to choose from, starting from the Tradesman that is work-ready with a base price of $25,410. Next up is the Express, an affordable and complete package that goes anywhere. The Big Horn is a popular package equipped with everything you need in a truck. The new Rebel is the off-roader that tackles everything in its wake. Choosing the Sport is one where a race could happen – to get the goods from the store to home. At the top is a trio of Laramie models – all luxury, comfortable and fitting to an individual’s taste. The Laramie Longhorn is born on the ranch and made for the boss. The Laramie Limited is a luxury car disguised a truck. Or, the Laramie itself would work with its own leather seating and high quality trimmings.
Part of being the best truck in the business is having the best cab in the business. Ram’s interiors have always been among the best regardless of which trim you select. A large steering wheel frames one of the most comprehensive instrument cluster around. In higher trim models, a large seven-inch color display can be customized with a wide choice of information available for vehicle and trip functions. The 8.4-inch UConnect touch screen is available handling radio, mobile application support, infotainment and an optional navigation system. There is also the rotary E-shift connected to the eight-speed automatic saving room from a shifter on the console.
Over twenty years ago, Dodge revolutionized pickup truck design by crafting the look of a long nose over the highway truck onto the cab. That design remains today as Ram’s look – tall nose with a huge grille, lower fenders with headlight clusters on each one and a bumper that bold and highly functional. The 1500 comes in three cab configurations – Regular cab two-door, Quad Cab four-door and Crew Cab four-door with room for five-to-six adults inside.
