The Ram is one of the oldest designs in the market today and people might think that newer models from Ford and General Motors might be preferable. But against all odds, the 2017 Ram 1500 is still the topmost choice for the best pickup. The most impressive is the engine capabilities with reliable V6 and V8 engines for towing. The V6 diesel sets the standard for fuel efficiency and you would also find an air suspension for cruising. The tech inside the Ram and the coil-ring rear suspension make this the most comfortable drive. With plenty of safety features on the Ram as well including stability control, hill assist, side curtain airbags, there are other features that include usual front-seat airbags and antilock disc brakes, among others.
The most notable feature in the 2017 Ram 1500 is the six-speed transmission, making way for the eight-speed automatic transmission. The Outdoorsman trim level has also been dropped. There are two main body types available for the 2017 Ram. The regular cab that comes with two doors is able to seat three people comfortably and also has room for an 8-feet cargo bed. Whereas, the Quad Cab seats six people and has space for a bigger cargo bed. You can also find the Crew Cab that comes with four doors and has more legroom for rear-seat passengers.
Ram is known for its excellent driving performance. The adjustable air suspension is very different as it allows the Ram to drop a couple of inches for easing liftover and to park easily where there are step-in heights. The air suspension also allows an increase of a couple of inches for more clearance. If you want to tow, then the V8 is the obvious choice, but the V6 diesel engine performs well in terms of fuel economy. While the acceleration is a little slow on the gasoline V6, it is best used for making a daily commute and will also save you quite a bit of money in the long run.
The 2017 Ram 1500 features the best interiors. Regardless of the trim levels, the drive is extremely smooth. Lower trims are well made with the high-grade material. The wood trim and leather upholstery on the high trim are very comfortable, especially for long road trips. Moreover, there’s plenty of entertainment with the Uconnect systems. In addition, there is a keyless entry and ignition as well as Bluetooth and voice controls.
