Under the 1500's Hood

Three diverse engines are offered with the 2017 RAM 1500. The standard powertrain configuration features a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, and it works to provide 269 lb-ft of torque and 305 horsepower. It will feature a rear-wheel drive system, but customers can of course choose to equip four-wheel drive. In fact, there are two different four-wheel drive systems offered, including a version that has been specifically engineered for improved off-road performance. The 1500 is one of the most fuel-efficient trucks, and the base configuration can offer drivers a 25-mpg highway rating. When the Pentastar is properly equipped, it has a towing maximum of up to 7,610 pounds and a payload maximum of up to 1,890 pounds. RAM will also offer a HEMI V8 engine or an EcoDiesel V6, both of which are excellent alternatives.

Design of RAM 1500

The 1500 competes in the full-size pickup segment, and it is available in three excellent cab styles. The two-door Regular cab is standard, and RAM offers two optional four-door cabs. The first is called the Quad Cab, and the second is the Crew Cab, which is an extended four-door. Ten trim levels are offered for 2017, and since the Outdoorsman trim was discontinued for the new year, RAM has spread out that trim's standard features to the other trims. Every trim is impressively equipped, allowing customers to create a comfortable and entertaining experience even while at the work site or during towing jobs. The base Tradesman level is perfect for customers who need a workhorse, while the luxurious Big Horn trim features upgraded cloth upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an upgraded 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen. Another impressive option is the Rebel trim, which has been engineered for off-road adventures and features tow hooks, front/rear Bilstein shock absorbers, and all-terrain tires.

What bed length does the Quad Cab have?

The Quad Cab comes equipped with a 6-foot 4-inch bed length, and it has reverse rear door hinges which widen the opening of the cab, making it easier to load and unload.
