Ram 1500 Overview

The Ram is the most civilized full-sized pickup, yet it's still plenty capable. Its coil-spring rear suspension helps cushion the ride and the spacious cab is luxury-car quiet. Our Big Horn Crew Cab, with its smooth, effortless 5.7-liter V8, averaged 15 mpg. The base 3.6-liter V6 is plenty capable, but tows less. Unique among half-ton trucks, the available EcoDiesel 3.0-liter V6 is expensive, but returns class-leading fuel economy. All engines are now mated to a slick eight-speed automatic. Rear seat room is generous and the Uconnect 8.4 touch screen infotainment system is easy to use. Reliability has dropped to below average with the gas engines, but diesel reliability is still unknown.
