It's a great, solid truck with all the technology I need! The air suspension rides VERY smooth and does not feel like a truck. Luxury cars almost don't ride this nice. The infotainment center, navigation, and center consoles are also a notch above the competition. Overall performance is great with the 5.7L Hemi engine, and it still gets decent fuel mileage for a fully loaded truck at 18-19mpg on summer fuels!
Story
I have taken multiple long road trips - the longest being a 22 hour drive. The comfort in this truck for the long drives is great - and the room in the backseat for passengers keeps them comfortable and quiet the entire ride. It's the perfect long distance truck!
Pros
The air suspension technology is convenient for entry/exit mode, but it also rides like a dream. This is possibly one of the coolest things about the truck. The technology built into the center console is also great - the navigation is easy to use, and you can operate anything with the touch screen. In floor storage cubbies - you might thing you'd never use these, but they are great for storing things like ratchet straps or items you don't need daily, but need to keep with you. Some folks even use these as coolers. The Hemi engine. Nothing rivals the 5.7L Hemi in your standard 1500 class o... (more)
Cons
I have gotten 2-3 recalls in total on the truck. While concerning, it seems like most new trucks with all this new technology are getting more recalls than they used to in years past. To do oil changes, the oil filter is right above the cross member and front transfer case, so it is difficult to do a "clean" oil change. I'm not a fan of the trailer tow mirrors. If you get the trailer tow package, there is not an option to stay with standard mirrors.

Just a great all around truck. I have towed a 9,000-lb. trailer for around 15,000 miles, and the truck shows no issues. Great gas mileage for a truck (12mpg towing and 20mpg not towing). Plenty of power and came with all the bells and whistles (back-up camera and proximity alerts, Sirius XM radio, exhaust brakes, etc...) 3 kids in car seats are comfortable in the back seat. No issues whatsoever so far. The truck is a beautiful black color that shines like nothing else when clean and still looks good even when it starts getting dirty. Performance is incredible. Can easily pass slower cars and trucks even while towing. Heated seats (independent controls for driver and passenger) along with driver and passenger controls for A/C and Heat keep me and the wife comfortable. Heated steering wh... (more)
Story
The day I brought the truck home my wife was not too impressed....until she got in. She loved the interior, and the ride of the truck. She was equally thrilled when we drove through our small town and had about four or five people stop us to say how much they liked the truck.
Pros
Towing performance is awesome. Love the back-up camera and proximity sensors. Gas mileage is better than expected.
Cons
Not many. Side steps would have been nice.

2017 Ram 1500 Quick Look

Pros:

  • Improved coil spring suspension for a smoother ride on rough roads.
  • Superior shifting eight-speed automatic transmission.
  • Luxury cabin upgrade options.

Cons:

  • Expensive diesel engine.
  • Average towing capacity compared to rivals.
  • Unimpressive fuel economy in the V8.

Vehicle Type: Full-size half-ton pickup truck.

Price Range: Between $22,900 and $41,000 including destination, but before options.

Powertrain: Three choices include a 395-horsepower 5.7-liter V8 engine with 410 lb-ft of torque, a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine, and a 3.0-liter 240 horsepower EcoDiesel V6 with 420 lb-ft of torque.

Four-wheel-drive is available as an option.

Competitors: Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Toyota Tundra, Nissan Titan, GMC Sierra.


Overall Score: 8.4/10

Safety Features: 7/10

The Ram 1500 scores high and low marks as far as safety. Some features in certain trim packages, like a backup camera, parking sensors, and automatic high beams, plus trailer-sway control and enhanced electronic traction, afford better than average protection.

Overlap front and roof tests rated poorly for the Ram, while (NHTSA) tests gave four stars in frontal tests, as well as high ratings for side-impact.

Overall, the Ram 1500 is mostly on par with competitors when it comes to safety.


Value: 9/10

The Ram 1500 full-size pickup is a reliable workhorse and great truck that stands toe-to-toe with its Chevy and Ford competitors. Dodge has been improving and solidifying their position in this industry segment for years by delivering consistent full-size truck features and performance at an affordable price with the Ram truck.

There are eight trim level available: the Tradesman, Ram 1500 Big Horn, Express, Rebel, Ram 1500 Sport, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited and many cab and bed configurations.

The regular cab standard Tradesman trim is a rear-wheel drive, no-frills base model, and starts at $26,495.

A fully loaded Ram 1500 Laramie and Limited with all the bells and whistles can exceed $53,600 depending on trim and style options.

The diesel V6 engine does add an expensive extra cost that some reviewers found prohibitive at upward of $3000 more.


Tech Features: 8/10

Light-duty trucks like the Ram 1500 generally are not expected to have many tech features outside of standard climate control, Bluetooth, and current connectivity technology. Dodge has responded to modern demands and delivered. Its 5.0- and 8.4-inch touchscreen interfaces are easy to use, making the infotainment system a breeze. A rearview camera aids reversing. The Uconnect navigation system is very user-friendly.

The Laramie Longhorn boasts tech like keyless entry and LED bed lights. The Sport model has a remote start and more security with an alarm.


Practicality: 7/10

All the Ram 1500 models have reliable standard features like comfortable cabin space and seating and an exterior RamBox that provides useful in-bed storage. Storage space options abound in the interior as well.

The power bucket front seats with unlimited adjustments is a welcome option for larger people. The seats also add a fun and stylish component when out on back roads.

The Ram is a superb truck for both hauling and towing and can comfortably seat several people with roomy back seats and a spacious interior.


Styling & Design: 9/10

Dodge didn't compromise style for their light-duty work truck. The same beefy design that has become the Ram standard holds true in the 2017 model. Many cab-and-bed configurations are available, including popular Crew Cab and Quad Cab for extra rear seats cabin seating capacity.

The sporty Ram 1500 Rebel has features like a grille that adds a rugged look when off-road, dual-zone climate control, and an anti-spin differential.

At the high end, the crew-cab-only Longhorn and Limited feature upgraded leather upholstery, keyless entry, a navigation system, and other perks that make them feel almost like luxury cars.


Driving Experience: 8/10

The Ram 1500's base engine is a 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine delivering 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. Other powertrains are available, including a powerful 400 horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 engine.

Dodge has relied on the Ram 1500 through several generations as their go-to light-duty workhorse pickup truck for a good reason. Its muscular design, soft rear suspension, and luxury options like leather seats and steering wheel make it an attractive full-size truck.

Such features as the efficiently shifting eight-speed automatic transmission and rear coil-spring suspension provide an ultra-smooth ride. The four-corner air suspension on the higher end models gives five options of lift adjustment for further performance enhancement.

While the Ram may lag a little in its towing capacity compared to competitors, its Hemi V8 engine is rated for 10,650 pounds of towing, making it a top-ranked choice for heavy payloads. Even the smaller EcoDiesel V6 is given a boost in towing capacity due to turbochargers and a higher compression ratio.


Fuel Efficiency: 7/10

For a light-duty full-size truck, fuel efficiency is fair to good in the Ram 1500. The standard two-wheel-drive gasoline V-6 base models like the Tradesman get an EPA rating of 17/25/20 mpg city/hwy/combined. The two-wheel drive gasoline V-8 models are rated slightly lower at 15/22/17 mpg city/hwy/combined. The four-wheel drive option decreases efficiency to 16/23/19 mpg. The diesel V6 gets a slight bump to 20/28/23 mpg.

The Ram 1500 has different powertrains, including a clean and efficient V6 turbo-diesel engine as well as an aggressive Hemi V8 that is less forgiving on fuel consumption. Whether fuel economy is a concern or not, the Ram 1500 offers suitable trim packages to meet that need.
