Wow! In addition to giving drivers an incredible array of entertainment technologies designed to keep you and your passengers informed and engaged, and a collection of safety devices to keep everybody on board protected, the 2016 RAM 1500 also offers unparalleled power and high-quality performance, giving drivers a choice of powerful engines, awesome towing power, high rates of efficiency, Hill Start Assist, and Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension. Let’s look at each in detail.

Three Engines

You get a choice of three engines in the RAM 1500: a 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine that produces 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque; a 3.6L V6 24-Valve VVT engine that generates 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque; and a 5.7L V8 HEMI MDS VVT engine that gets 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque.

Awesome Towing Capacity

With all this horsepower you’re going to get awesome towing capacity: for example, the 1500 truck lugs 10,650 pounds and can promise you 1,880 pounds in payload.

High Rates of Efficiency

Likewise, this is an efficient truck, no matter the engine. On the one hand, the 3.6L gets as much as 18 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway, and the 5.7L will ensure you 15 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. Finally, the EcoDiesel produces a whopping 20 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway.

Hill Start Assist

Additionally, the 1500 features a Hill Start Assist to keep you from rolling backwards on inclines when you start the truck on a hill, improving your safety.

Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension

Finally, the 1500 also comes with adjustable air springs, letting you raise or lower the truck to one of five heights, plus it comes with sensors that automatically lower the 1500 at high speeds, thus reducing drag.
