Ram 1500 pickups have roomy cabs with excellent ergonomics, cubby storage galore, and giant touchscreens that are easy to operate. Ram Box bed storage, an adjustable suspension that kneels for easier ingress, and active grille shutters add to its appeal.
The Ram 1500 competes with the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, Toyota Tundra, and Nissan Titan. All but the Ram have been recently redesigned.
The Ram compares very well to the competition and is the most distinctive among a group of distinctive trucks. Ride quality is dependent on suspension, tires and other packaging choices, but the Ram 1500 models generally tend toward the smoother end of the class, vying with Chevrolet and GMC.
The 2016 Ram is a fourth-generation product, introduced as a 2009 model. 2014 brought a diesel engine and some styling updates.
For 2016, a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel engine is available that achieves an EPA rating of 20/29 mpg City/Highway while delivering 420 pound-feet of trailer-pulling torque. Also new for 2016: the rugged Ram Rebel and the luxurious Ram Laramie Limited. Otherwise, the Ram 1500 lineup continues unchanged.
A range of engines is available for the Ram to suit the wide variety of needs and missions that characterize light-duty pickups. Among them: the new 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel, the 3.6-liter V6 that comes standard on all models, and the 5.7-liter V8 Hemi. All come standard with an 8-speed automatic.
Regular Cab, Quad Cab, and Crew Cab versions are available, the latter most popular for their roomy back seats. Bed lengths range from 6-feet, 4-inches or 5-feet, 7-inches on Crew Cab and Quad Cab models to the full 8 feet with Regular Cabs.
Interiors range widely by trim level, with upper levels outfitted in handsome fabrics and leathers with impressive attention to detail, making them very nice vehicles in which to spend time.
