Cab  and Bed Configurations

The Ram 1500 comes with many cab and bed options. There are four models of the new Dodge Ram:

  • Dodge 1500 Warlock
  • Dodge 1500 Tradesman
  • Dodge 1500 Big Horn
  • Dodge 1500 Express

When comparing the Tradesman and the Express, there are five different cab and bed configurations available to buyers.The regular cab in these two models can come with a 6’4″ or 8′ bed. The quad cab comes with a 6’4″ bed. Two crew cab options include beds that are either 5’7″ or 6’4″ in size. Three of the four models feature the Class-Exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System. This feature secured storage along the side of the truck’s bed without losing any storage space in the bed itself. 

Engine Power

The Dodge Ram truck comes with three powertrain options available. A 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 is the base engine. It comes with a standard mild-hybrid system called eTorque. A battery pack that is hidden in the back wall of the truck offers a 48-volt integrated starter/generator/motor. The other two options are the  5.7-liter Hemi V-8. These can come with or without the eTorque system as an option. With dual exhaust pipes, this engine has some power from that V-8. It offers 395 hp and 410 pounds-feet of torque. The hybrid system works so seamlessly, drivers will likely not know when they have gone from the gas-powered engine to the hybrid system.

Durability and Towing

With the Hemi V-8 engine and standard eight-speed rotary-dial-controlled automatic transmission, this truck has no problem doing some towing.  The Dodge 1500 Tradesman offers a towing capacity of 12,750 pounds. The truck comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but a four-wheel drive is an option. Both options offer a smooth ride even while towing at its capacity. The V-6 diesel offers 9,200 pounds of towing power.  When the Dodge truck designers and engineers rebuilt this model they went for a lighter, longer, wider version from its predecessors. It left behind its big-rig look. Now it shows its leaner, more upright look. 

Luxurious Interiors

While there are lots to love in this Ram pick up, the interiors are downright showstoppers. Whether you are looking at the base model or the top of the line model, the interiors are luxurious.  With rich leather used on every surface, including the dashboard. Along with the leather is an open-pore wood to add to the richness of the interior. The steering wheel is thick and worthy of being in a luxury pickup. 

The Limited model has grab handles covered in leather. This model also features heated and ventilated front and rear seats. Its enormous center console has cupholders and storage cubbies between the front bucket seats. Significant legroom in both the front seats and rear seats is also worth noting. 

Technology Features

While Dodge went all out on the interiors, they didn’t slow down when it came to tech features in this new Dodge Ram truck. Depending on the model the truck offers a 5 to 12″ interfacing screen. The screen is configurable and reacts to both motion and touch.  Other technology features include:
