New 2017 RAM 1500 at Holden Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for Dover, DE

The light-duty RAM 1500 is a well-liked truck type any way you slice it, and there seems to be a trim version for every potential user! It truly packs in the versatility you desire in a truck with its efficiently-designed eight-speed automatic and simultaneously makes sure the cabin has excellent air quality with its standard cabin air filters. New for 2017, the Sport model puts in a remote start and a security alarm. The Ram 1500 is the only half-ton pickup truck around that allows a diesel engine to get you there. The Bighorn model keeps the climate even with its new-for-2017 automatic temperature control. The Laramie Longhorn has rain-sensing wipers, LED truck bed lighting, SmartBeam technology, and Keyless Go-- all as standard. And of course, there's what most truck enthusiasts come here for, the raw power of the engine in the RAM 1500-- just what you need to know more about right now!

Under the 1500's Hood

The standard engine on the Limited, Laramie Longhorn, and Sport trims is a 5.7-liter V8 that is made up of 395 horsepower and generates 410 lb-ft of torque (an option on all, except the HFE model). The HFE model has the EcoDiesel as standard, which is a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 that has 240 horsepower and spits out 420 lb-ft of torque. The EcoDiesel engine is a possible selection on all models besides the Rebel, Sport, and Express models. There is an 8-speed automatic transmission on the RAM 1500, mixed into a 3.6-liter gasoline V6 engine as standard. That identical engine gets 305 horsepower and turns out 269 pound-feet of torque. A Ram 1500 with the V6 gasoline engine can tow up to 7,610-lbs (properly equipped), the V8 engine will tow up to 10,640 pounds, and the diesel V6 can tow up to 9,210-lbs. Both 4WD systems use a 2-speed transfer case and garner the low-range gearing needed for off-road endeavors. Every model in the list uses 5-link coil springs on the rear and twin-tube shocks for the suspension. The Rebel model makes hauling stuff easy with an active-level, 4-corner air suspension system that is standard. Rear-wheel drive is also standard, or owners can pick either one of the two potential 4WD systems to their liking.

Design of RAM 1500

The Ram 1500 has dual Uconnect touchscreen sizes (5-inch or 8.4-inch), and is a useful feature for information, connectivity, and passenger entertainment. Bluetooth, keyless entry and ignition, remote start, power-adjustable pedals, voice controls, smartphone integration, and a Wi-Fi hotspot all are located within the Ram 1500. The Tradesman, Rebel, Laramie, Limited, Big Horn/Lone Star, Express, HFE, SLT, Sport and the Laramie Longhorn are the models buyers will be able to choose from for the 2017 year. Almost all of these models can rock the passengers with sound pushed through a six-speaker audio system! The Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited models actually use 10 speakers combined with a subwoofer to get even stronger sounds into the cabin (as standard) with the Premium II package. This package also includes an Alpine audio system and a 12-channel amplifier! The Rebel enters the arena at this point strictly in a tough crew cab style, which has a 5-foot-7-inch truck bed. The Rebel trim has features such as LED fog-lights, anti-spin differential, all-terrain tires, front/rear Bilstein performance shock absorbers (all other models are rated heavy-duty), tow hooks, 17-inch wheels, black fender flares, keyless entry, and the RamBox storage system (available).

Various Ram 1500 standard safety features in 2017 are 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, trailer sway control, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags, hill-start assist, and stability control. In government crash testing, the Ram 1500 achieved 4 out of 5 stars for overall crash protection, which is made up of 4 stars for complete front-crash protection and 5 stars for complete side-crash protection. The 2017 Ram 1500 pickup's head and seat restraint design received a 'Good' score in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests for rear-impact whiplash protection. A controller for the completely unified trailer-brake is an available item to not miss, and a rearview camera becomes available, which is honestly just as helpful.
