RAM 1500

Pre-Owned RAM 1500 at Thomson Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for Thomson, GA

The Ram 1500 has been the perennial Bronze medalist in the full-size truck sales competition, and Ram Truck has made huge improvements recently with models such as the Tradesman, Outdoorsman and Express. But the Ram 1500 needed to be special. Ram engineers started by improving the Ram's foundation. Liberal use of high-strength steel allows the half-ton frame to be stiffer, stronger and lighter. Use of aluminum for upper and lower control arms, as well as the massive hood, shaved even more weight off the truck.

Design of RAM 1500

Outside, the new Ram may look similar to the previous version, but the changes are significant. Engineers have closed the gaps in the front air dam and bumper to allow more air to get pushed up or around the Ram's big face. The rough edges in the hood and grille have been "sanded" smooth to help airflow. Overall, the improvements are significant, moving from a 0.387 coefficient of drag to a 0.363 Cd. Ram's interior design team remodeled the dash and center stack and included higher-grade materials and switches. The addition of the eight-speed automatic transmission, which is controlled by a rotary knob below the driver's air-conditioning vent, gave Ram a chance to create a more balanced, polished layout. With no need for a center console shifter, cupholders and storage opportunities are expanded in the armrest area.

The Ram offers grille styles, dependent on trim level, as well as a new bifunctional halogen projector beam headlight option. The new headlights and LED accents are said to offer more light, a better pattern, and use less energy doing it. The taillamps also have been redesigned and sport multiple LEDs.
