Three Engine Options with the Handling Chops for More Than the Extra Mile


2017 Ram 1500's powerhouse takes three forms, running the gamut from design for efficiency, such as in the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel iteration, to a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine build and 395-horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI option for raw hauling power.


And the ride ought to be as smooth and responsive as the energy delivery behind it. An available Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension with automatic load leveling makes it a snap not only to either raise and lower the truck to one of five ride height settings but also manually adjust ground clearance via convenient in-dash controls. Plus, smart sensors are designed to activate automatically at highway speeds, lowering Ram 1500 to help reduce drag and increase efficiency, making for an agile drive.

Factor in Ram 1500's standard TorqueFlite® 8 eight-speed auto transmission, and you can look forward to excellent acceleration in lower gears with seamless shifts between them. Just take advantage of the instrument panel-mounted Rotary E-shift for ease of use. A Thermal Management System delivers increased fuel efficiency.


A Body Built to Last - While Taking Ample Cargo in Tow


It's all possible thanks to Ram 1500's high-strength steel frame and hydroformed tubular front frame unit, engirded by eight crossmembers built ultra-tough. And ensconced within is your choice of cab configuration depending upon trim, from the six-passenger, 40/20/40 split-bench front seat-equipped Crew Cab, designed to optimize both passenger comfort and capacity, to that of the Quad Cab, featuring reverse rear door hinges to simplify loading and unloading.


Take the economical turn in opting for a Regular Cab design, and you can accommodate up to three passengers while retaining diverse box options to make the most of Ram's storage capacity. And an available RamBox® Cargo Management System provides even more flexibility for the purpose, supplemented by an available in-floor rear cargo compartment on Crew Cab models.


And on the road, you can count on Ram 1500 to tow the line as pertains taking a trailerful, as the pickup offers a 10,620-pound max towing capacity as well as a 1,880-pound max payload support when properly equipped.


Peace of Mind is the Order of the Day with Myriad Advanced Safety Tech Options


Heading to the job site, Ram 1500 showcases a design with you and your passengers and cargo in mind. Not only does the truck offer the protection of dynamic crumple zones, side-impact door beams, an advanced airbag system, and four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, but it also plays host to a suite of features to help keep the ride just as secure. Electronic Stability Control helps keep all four Ram 1500 wheels planted firmly during maneuvers, both up steep inclines using Hill Start Assist, with cargo at the rear via Trailer Sway Control, and during inclement weather thanks to Rain Brake Support, Brake Assist and Ready Alert Braking. Plus, finding that ideal spot to sidle into at your venue is a snap using Ram 1500's available ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera and ParkSense® Front Park Assist System.


The Drive-Time Connectivity to Support Your Work-Life Balance on the Go


Hitting the road doesn't have to mean going off-grid. 2017 Ram 1500'S available Uconnect® 8.4 infotainment system features an 8.4-inch high-resolution touchscreen with smartphone-integrating Voice Command features, Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio support, so you can remain connected and in the know.
