Overview

No longer the third wheel of American pickups, the RAM 1500 has become especially competitive over the past few years. A strong engine roster and highly refined interior have certainly boosted its appeal, not to mention a dizzying array of trims and special packages.

What's New For 2015

The RAM 1500 is essentially unchanged this year.

RAM 1500

Choosing Your RAM 1500

Like its competitors, the 1500 comes in multiple configurations. The Regular Cab seats three and is available with either a 6-foot-4-inch or 8-foot bed. The Quad Cab comes only with a 6-foot-4-inch bed and features narrow, front-hinged rear doors and a full-length backseat. The Crew Cab offers full-size rear doors and more rear legroom, along with your choice of a 5-foot-7-inch or 6-foot-4-inch bed.

The standard 3.6-liter V6 produces 305 horsepower and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Next up is a 395-horsepower 5.7-liter V8, which comes with a six- or eight-speed automatic depending on the trim level. For enhanced efficiency, RAM also offers a 3-liter turbodiesel V6 with 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, matched to an eight-speed automatic. Buyers who want four-wheel drive can choose a conventional part-time system or one with an automatic four-wheel-drive mode. Both systems feature low-range gearing. With the eight-speed automatic, gear selections are made using a dash-mounted rotary knob instead of a shift lever.

The V6 RAM 1500 can tow up to 7,450 pounds, and turbodiesel models top out at 9,200. The V8 offers the most pulling capability at 10,450 pounds.

The 1500 is available in no less than six trim levels:

RAM 1500

Tradesman

Comes sparsely equipped with vinyl seats, rubber floor covering, air conditioning, cruise control, 17-inch steel wheels, and a basic six-speaker sound system. Quad and Crew models also get standard power windows. A cloth interior and full carpeting are available on all configurations. The optional V8 comes with a six-speed automatic, whereas all other trim levels get the eight-speed unit.

RAM 1500

HFE

The High Fuel Economy version of the 1500 comes only as a rear-drive Regular Cab with special fuel-saving features such as automatic engine stop-start and a bed cover. Cloth upholstery and power windows and locks are standard.

RAM 1500

SLT

Spruces up the 1500 with alloy wheels, chrome exterior trim and dual glove boxes. The optional Luxury Group includes power-folding mirrors, upgraded interior lighting, an overhead console and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.

RAM 1500

Sport

Gets the V8 engine as standard, plus heated front bucket seats with driver power, a heated steering wheel, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, LED interior lighting, and the Uconnect infotainment and communications system. The exterior gets 20-inch wheels, body-color bumpers and grille, auto-dimming mirrors, fog lamps and LED accent lighting.

RAM 1500

Laramie

Available in Quad and Crew forms, the Laramie adds luxuries such as power front seats upholstered in leather, driver memory, two-tone paint, heated mirrors, woodgrain and chrome interior trim, and an upgraded sound system with a subwoofer.

RAM 1500

Longhorn

Comes as a Crew Cab only with enhancements such as tow hooks, a larger fuel tank, remote start, parking sensors, HD radio, a revised grille and a navigation system with real-time traffic data. The Limited package adds even more upgrades, including ventilated front seats and heated rear seats covered in premium leather, an air suspension, monochromatic paint, automatic windshield wipers and high beams, keyless ignition and a wood-trimmed steering wheel. Note that the air suspension is available on lesser trims as a standalone option.

CarsDirect Tip

The SLT strikes the right balance of comfort and affordability in our view. It's a sharp-looking truck that doesn't overdose on bling or require you to make costly upgrades.
