The Ram 1500 line of full-size pickup trucks offers the range diversity buyers in this segment expect, from a regular cab work truck to a luxuriously appointed crew cab with four full doors. Where it aims to differ from competing brands from GM, Ford and Toyota is in the areas of fuel efficiency, refinement and clever features.
Ram 1500s are available as two-door regular cabs and four-door extended and Quad cabs, with various combinations available with f-foot 7-inch, 6-foot-4 or 8-foot bed lengths, and either a 3.6-liter V6 with 305 horsepower and an 8-speed automatic transmission, a 4.7-liter V8 with 310 horsepower or 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with 395 horsepower, both mated to 6-speed automatics.Read more »
