Surprisingly luxurious and refined, the Ram remains fully capable of doing dirty work when duty calls. A unique coil-spring rear suspension gives it a smooth ride and the interior is whisper-quiet. Continued interior and powertrain improvements make the Ram a particularly well-rounded choice. You can also get a diesel. All Ram 1500s now come with an efficient, slick-shifting eight-speed automatic, a pickup-truck exclusive.
