With its freshening, the Ram emerges as perhaps the most civilized full-sized pickup to date. Its coil-spring rear suspension helps lend a cushioned ride and handling is competent for such a big vehicle. Our Big Horn Crew Cab, with its smooth, effortless 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and slick eight-speed automatic, averaged 15 mpg. The base 4.7-liter V8, mated to a six-speed automatic, is underwhelming and gets no better mpg than the 5.7-liter V8. An available V6 is plenty capable. The spacious cab is luxury-car quiet and the Uconnect Infotainment system, with its eight-inch touch screen, is easy to use.
