 What's New for the 2017 RAM 1500?

The 2017 Ram 1500 has a class-leading cabin and offers some class-leading performance features. Shoppers on the lookout for the right truck are sure to find the comfort and capability they want in one Ram package. Reviewers from Edmunds to Kelley Blue Book give the Ram 1500 high marks for its interiors, calling them best in the class. For 2017, this means high quality materials, ergonomic design, and the latest amenities. Even the base edition is well-crafted, and the cabin is always quiet thanks to extraordinary sound-proofing measures. The surface and seats simply look and feel better. This emphasis on craftsmanship also means durability. A special rotary shifter declutters the console, leaving more space for your personal items. There are now 11 trims that come in five bed-cabin configurations. You can find top amenities such as power-adjusting pedals and climate-controlled seats as well as design features such as leather upholstery and soft touchpoints on the dash and doors. An 8.4-inch touchscreen leads its class. UConnect includes smartphone streaming, mobile apps, and Siri Eyes Free. Curb appeal and exterior amenities have also been stressed in the new lineup. While the all-new Night package adds a black treatment to the grille, the headlight bezels, and wheels, the Ram Laramie Longhorn trim now has rain-sensing wipers, smart high beams, and LED bed lighting.

Adding to the passengers’ comfort, Ram is the only truck to use a five-link coil spring suspension. This smooths the bumps and eliminates the bounce. If you drive a different brand of truck, you have to experience the difference to believe it. Kelley Blue Book, Edmunds and other reviewers praise the 2017 Ram for this unique suspension and the resulting superior ride. All amenities aside, hauling is the purpose for the Ram 1500. You'll find a helpful variety of capabilities from its three engine choices and three bed sizes. The new truck claims the lowest coefficient of drag of any truck. Enhancing that, the V-6 has active grille shutters. A tough V-8 offers competitive payload and towing power. The EcoDiesel V-6 has a high torque rate, allowing it to work as hard or harder as rival V-8s. With this engine, the Ram 1500 claims the best fuel economy in its class. Just imagine how much your business can save with a truck that earns 28 mpg in highway driving. For even better aerodynamics, the auto-leveling air suspension can lower an empty bed or balance a big load. Drivers can lower the bed to empty the load or raise the bed for ground clearance on worksites or debris-strewn trails. Safety is also emphasized by Ram trucks. Trailer Sway Control, Brake Assist and Ready Alert Braking use electronics to balance brake distribution and ensure traction. Rain brake support is a Ram exclusive not found on rivals.
