Truck owners around the nation know they don’t need to look any further than the RAM dealership for the best trucks available. Power, reliability, and thoughtful design with a range of options and need-specific trims have set RAM trucks apart from the competition. The 2013 models are establishing themselves as the most innovative yet to be released. Explore the new designs and technologies featured in these trucks to choose the right one for the right job:
The body designs for this latest lineup of trucks are much stronger than before; also, nearly every feature and most systems have seen reductions in weight for improved fuel economy. The best-in-class drag coefficient reflects these vehicles’ improved aerodynamics, and reduced road noise is a pleasant side-effect.
Achieving class-leading fuel economy wasn’t hard for the engineers at RAM. New air-suspension and automatic grille shutters were instrumental in this achievement. The redesigned 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine produces 42% more horsepower, 13% more torque, weighs less, and still features improved fuel economy. The eight-speed automatic transmission is also a big player in cutting fuel consumption. If interior features are top on your list of must-haves, the brand-new version of the Uconnect system is sure to appeal to you.
RAM pickup trucks come in three classes, including 1500, 2500, and 3500. The available drivetrains and trims are the main differences of each. The 1500 will offer a V8 HEMI and V6 Pentastar for the 2013 model year. The 2500 comes standard with a 383-horsepower, 400 pound-feet of torque V8 HEMI, and the 3500 offers the 350-horsepower, 800 pound-feet of torque 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel engine as a standard. The 1500 has an available five-foot, seven-inch bed box, and the 2500 and 3500 offer the choice of a six-foot, four-inch or eight-foot box. The shorter beds each offer the class-exclusive RAM-box storage system.
