2017 RAM 1500 at Newark Chrysler Jeep Dodge for Newark, DE

The 2017 RAM 1500 is a fantastic truck that will appeal to any driver that needs a light-duty pickup with a serious work ethic. If you need a great mobile-office for the job site or a reliable truck for tasks closer to home, the 2017 RAM 1500 will be perfect. This excellent model will head into the new year with many similarities to the 2017 model, but it will now come standard with the eight-speed automatic transmission with every engine configuration. Another notable difference comes to the trim lineup, with the Outdoorsman dropped from the options, and its features spread out to the other trims. You can learn about the versatile, refined, and powerful 2017 RAM 1500 by reading below!

Under the 1500's Hood

Drivers have many options when it comes to configuring the powertrain of their 2017 RAM 1500. Coming standard is a 3.6-liter V6 engine, which is gas-powered, and delivers 269 lb-ft of torque and 305 horsepower. As stated above, the eight-speed automatic transmission is standard with every engine, and on the V6 this transmission has a rotary knob on the instrument panel. Other engine options include a 5.7-liter V8 and a 3.0-liter diesel V6. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but there are several four-wheel drive options that will make it easy to go off-road.

Design of RAM 1500

The 2017 RAM 1500 is a full-size pickup, and it can be equipped in one of three trims, either the regular (two-door), Quad cab (four-door) or the Crew Cab (extended four-door). There are different lengths offered depending on which cab is chosen. RAM offers ten trim levels, with something for every driver and whatever they need. The base Tradesman will have a seven-pin wiring harness, a Class IV receiver hitch, and a locking tailgate. The Express will gain 20-inch wheels, while the HFE (high fuel economy) will have the diesel engine and automatic engine stop-start. The SLT boasts remote keyless entry and a 5-inch touchscreen interface, and the upscale Big Horn has upgraded cloth upholstery and the amazing 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Moving on, RAM offers a number of luxury-level trims, including the Big Horn, Sport, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, Limited, and off-road-oriented Rebel. Those trims are only the beginning, as RAM offers a variety of packages and standalone features, including appearance enhancements, a sunroof, heated rear seats, chrome bed rails, and more.
