The Ram 1500 is the most comfortable-riding full-sized pickup truck, partly due to its rear coil-spring suspension.
The 5.7-liter V8 is smooth, and the mild-hybrid option ensures seamless stop/start at idle.
We got 17 mpg overall.
The base 3.6-liter V6 has that setup as standard equipment.
Handling is secure and responsive for such a large truck.
The cabin is extremely quiet.
In most versions, four-wheel drive can remain engaged indefinitely--a plus.
Rear-seat room is generous, and the Uconnect touch-screen infotainment system is easy to use.
The top trim Limited is lavishly furnished inside and features an enormous 12-inch touch screen for the Uconnect system.
Advanced safety features, such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and blind spot warning, are optional.
A new diesel engine is once again available.
Updates for 2021 include an available pedestrian detection feature, and a new TRX version, which comes with a 702-horsepower, 6.2-liter supercharged V8..
