Whether you’re searching for a new or used pickup, the Ram 1500 offers a lot. From the newest models straight off the assembly line to previous model years with a special focus on the job site or off-roading, you have a lot of factors to consider when choosing the right Ram pickup for your needs. If you’d like one of our truck experts at Bill Volz Westchester to provide some advice, don’t hesitate to contact our dealership in Cortlandt, New York, today.
The latest edition of the Ram 1500 offers you five engine options to choose from. The base engine is a 3.5-liter V-6 unit that’s good for 305 horsepower. This should provide you with more than enough power for day-to-day driving and light towing needs.
If you plan on doing some heavier work, you’ll want to look to the 5.7-liter V-8, which pumps out 395 horsepower in its standard configuration or with a hybrid powertrain. You could also consider the 3.0-liter V-6 diesel, which churns out 260 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque.
By far the most impressive powertrain is the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine, which produces a remarkable 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. It’s available in the range-topping TRX trim only.
The Ram 1500’s fuel economy varies widely depending on your choice of engine. If good gas mileage is your top priority, you’ll want the V-6 diesel, which achieves up to 32 mpg on the highway. By contrast, if you’re quite happy to sacrifice fuel efficiency for pure performance, the supercharged V-8’s 14 mpg on the highway probably won’t trouble you too much.
The towing capacity for the Ram 1500 is 12,750 lbs, which is provided by the V-8 hybrid engine. The diesel isn’t far behind with an upper limit of 12,560 lbs. The V-6 base engine has the lowest towing capacity at 7,730 lbs, but it returns the highest payload limit for your cargo bed of 2,300 lbs.
When it comes to the interior of this pickup, you can choose between two cab options and two cargo beds depending on your requirements. Up front, you can opt for a Quad or Crew cab. Both cab styles have two rows of seats, but the Crew cab offers significantly more legroom in the rear row, which comes in handy if you regularly have adult passengers riding back there. The Quad cab has half-sized rear doors, while the Crew cab has full-sized rear doors.
The longer cargo bed measures 6 feet 4 inches, while the shorter one comes in at 5 feet 7 inches in length. You can pair both cargo beds with either cab option. They both have enough space between the wheel wells to lay a sheet of plywood or similarly sized items flat, so your choice will come down to whether you require the extra nine inches of length.
If you’re looking for an older Ram model instead of one from the latest model year, the Ram 1500 Classic is a great choice for the job site. Based on the fourth-generation Ram that was discontinued in 2019, the Ram 1500 Classic offers the benefit of an extra-long cargo bed that measures 8 feet in length. You also get a Regular cab consisting of three seats in one row.
If you prefer a more stripped-down interior in your pickup to one with all the latest tech features, this model may also attract you. It carries a lower price tag too, helping you to manage your budget. The Ram 1500 Classic is either available as a new vehicle based on the previous generation’s design or as a used truck from our pre-owned inventory. If you opt for a pre-owned Ram, you may want to learn more about our certified pre-owned program, which provides an extra safeguard for the quality of used vehicles.
Trim options vary depending on whether you shop for a new or used Ram 1500. Some of the most popular trims include the off-roading Rebel, TRX, and Tradesman. Some trims include unique features that include larger infotainment screens, upgraded driver safety tech, and luxury features, such as leather upholstery.
The Rebel trim is a good choice if you’re an off-roading fan. It’s equipped with the Crew cab and short cargo bed. Standard off-roading features include a performance suspension with a 2-inch lift kit, a locking rear differential, and tow hooks. You can upgrade to either a V-8 or diesel engine, four-wheel drive (4WD), and an air suspension.
The TRX trim is the one to go for if you want the supercharged V-8 engine. It also boasts excellent off-roading abilities thanks to standard 4WD, Bilstein shocks, an off-roading chassis, and a larger air filter to better cope with dust and dirt. Luxury options on offer in the TRX trim include leather upholstery, power adjustments for the front seats, and a heated steering wheel.
In contrast to the TRX trim, the Tradesman is a perfect choice if you want a basic but durable work truck for the job site. It’s available with cloth or synthetic leather upholstery and has a 5-inch screen and six-speaker stereo. You can opt for the short or longer cargo bed depending on your requirements. Optional upgrades include 4WD and some features for light off-roading, such as skid plates and a locking rear differential.
