What kind of power and handling can I expect from a Ram 1500?

Standard powertrain on the Ram 1500 is driven by a 3.8-liter gasoline V6, with optional upgrades to a 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine or a 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel (standard on some trims). While there's no wrong choice between the 1500's three capable engine choices, options can prioritize fuel efficiency, affordability, or towing and hauling power. HFE EcoDiesel models achieve up to 29 miles per gallon highway fuel efficiency, and 1500s equipped with the V8 gasoline engine are capable of towing up to 10,640 pounds. Integrated technologies such as Parasitic Loss Reduction, a variable displacement compressor, and pulse-width modulation work to optimize efficiency and lower emissions. All engine options are paired with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. The transmission and suspension work together to provide a smooth and comfortable drive. An available air suspension further enhances the 1500's drive.

What kind of interior and exterior design does the Ram 1500 have?

From a classic, rugged exterior to an award-winning cockpit, the Ram 1500 is marked by premium design. A powerful body shape remains consistent over various cab configurations, including single, crew and extended cabs. Three bed lengths and 11 trim levels offer endless customization options and come with standard and available features including heated mirrors; dual gloveboxes; 3.4, 5, 7 or 8.4-inch touchscreen interface; cloth or leather upholstery; wood interior trim and more. An interesting feature of many model years of the 1500 is a rotary shift knob on the dashboard, rather than a console mounted shifter. The shift knob frees up console space for storage and comfort. Cloth or leather-clad seats are soft but supportive, striking a perfect balance to provide a comfortable and ergonomic place to spend long days on the job. Optional RamBox storage systems can be added on to provide durable and lockable storage over the rear fenders inside the truck bed.

What are the safety and security features of the Ram 1500?

Among the Ram 1500's safety and security features are stability control, hill-start assist, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, tire pressure monitoring display, trailer-sway control, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. Uconnect-enabled models include an emergency telematics system with stolen vehicle tracking and one-touch 911 emergency connection. In crash testing, the Ram 1500 earned an overall score of four out of five possible stars, and five out of five stars for side crash protection. The Ram 1500 can go from 60 mph to a complete stop in 128 feet.
