2017 RAM 1500: Do It All in Comfort with Power

Do It All RAM 1500

Enjoy Power and Comfort in a Light-Duty Pickup

View Our Inventory

RAM 1500 is a light-duty pickup that can do it all. It has a unique coil-spring rear suspension that gives it an impressively  smooth unloaded ride. An adjustable air suspension makes the ride even better. Plus, it can drop 2 inches to ease lift-over and step-in heights when parked. Two off-road settings for the air suspension allow 1.2 inch and 2 inches increases above the standard height for extra clearance.

The engine choices, standard V6,  gasoline V8 or the high torque turbo-diesel V6 with great fuel economy, provide great towing strength. Excellent cargo management options and an attractive interior complete the package:

  • Smooth-riding suspension provides plenty of comfort,
  • Excellent trio of engine choices,
  • Smooth and efficient eight-speed automatic transmission,
  • Rebel 1500 off-road package offers extra capability,
  • Cabin is quiet and attractive,
  • Touchscreen interface is easy to use.

Once you've picked an engine, you can pick from the bare-bones Tradesman to the top-of-the-line Limited or, for the adventurous, the off-road-ready Rebel which is a rarity with trucks this large. It has a modern interior technology, and, to top it off, the Ram has class-exclusive coil-spring rear suspension and available self-leveling air suspension that gives it the smoothest ride on the market.

An eight-speed automatic with a rotary knob on the instrument panel is the only transmission offered, regardless of engine choice. There are two 4WD systems available, both having a two-speed transfer case with low-range gearing. One is a traditional part-time system with manual mode selection. The other offers an Auto 4WD mode that automatically switches between rear- and four-wheel drive as conditions dictate.

Interior Comfort

Available wood trim and premium leather upholstery add style to function for the RAM 1500. Plus, seat comfort is excellent, especially for long road trips, with soft padding and support in the right places. The crew cab provides plenty of legroom in the rear and matching seat comfort.

The Ram's infotainment features two available Uconnect systems. A 5-inch center screen is standard, and the large 8.4-inch upgrade screen has large virtual buttons, quick response times and logical menu layouts. As an added bonus for the less techy owner, there are several physical buttons and knobs that duplicate those tasks. The rotary shift knob on the dashboard frees up useful storage space especially when compared to trucks with console-mounted shifters.

There's plenty of available modern convenience features including:

  •     Keyless Entry and Ignition,
  •     Remote Start,
  •     Power-adjustable pedals,
  •     Bluetooth,
  •     Voice Controls,
  •     Smartphone integration, and
  •     Wi-Fi hot spot capability.

Optional power-adjustable pedals help find a good driving position because the Ram 1500 is exclusively equipped with a tilt-only steering wheel.

For storing items inside the cabin, the Ram provides plenty of standard and optional storage spaces. The extended cab has a clever fold-out flat floor space when you flip up the 60/40-split rear seats, while the crew cab features watertight storage compartments under the rear floor (i.e., coolers!) as well as shallow bins under the flip-up backseat. A unique Ram feature is the optional RamBox system, which places a pair of lockable compartments over the rear fenders inside the truck bed. With the right equipment levels, these compartments can even be locked and unlocked via remote.
