Under the 1500's Hood

The RAM 1500 is capable of accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour (mph) within 7.4 seconds. A great V-6 3.6-liter engine is available with 305 horsepower, 269 ft-lbs of twist and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The RAM 1500 has a long engine life due to its dual-filtration technology. You might get 23 miles per gallon (mpg) on the highway with 16 mpg city. Another available engine besides the 3.6-liter is a 3.0-liter Ecodiesel V-6 that creates 420 pounds per foot of twist at 2000 revolutions per minute (rpm) and 240 horsepower with an eight-speed automatic shift. Alternatively you may have a Turbodiesel-six engine that is good for drivers who would like to save money on fuel. This pickup may haul a maximum 9,200 pounds worth of equipment with the turbodiesel engines. Yet another prospective engine, besides the ones already named, is a 5.7-liter V-8 HEMI with variable valve timing (VVT). And I'm not done: also available--although on earlier 1500s--if that is what you would like--is a 4.8-liter V-8 engine. You can power this vehicle through cruise control to stay straight on the road without having to steer. 107 mph is the top speed. Regardless of whichever engine you select, you will have a fully-capable pick-up truck. You can buy all-season tires to get the pickup through the winter.

Conclusions

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the truck five stars for its side-crash safety. The truck received "good" ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for crash safety. Many airbags, emergency braking assist, four-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS) and stability and traction controls are available. The pickups have hill-start assist and trailer-sway control. Dusk-sensing headlamps automatically turn themselves on when it is beginning to get dark out, and you will like the pickup's delay-off headlamps. Rear parking sensors and a Parkview rearview camera are attainable. The passenger sitting in the front middle seat will have a three-point belt to protect them, which is the same seatbelt that all the other truck's occupants have. In addition, there are front seatbelt pretensioners. Tire pressure monitoring will alert you when you need to fill up your tires to avoid a flat. In case you do get a flat, an underbody mounted spare tire will be there to serve you. An engine immobilizer will help you out in an accident. An available panic alarm goes off to alert anyone near the truck if somebody tries to break into the vehicle. You should come see the RAM 1500 and learn about how it may be the pickup truck you seek!
