New 2016 RAM 1500 at East Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM for Greenvale, NY
The Ram is easily distinguished from the others, with its Freightliner looks. Its interior looks fantastic and features a big screen and controls that make it among the most intuitive to operate. The Laramie Longhorn, with its Southwestern leather and burl walnut, is impressive. The Ram stands out with comfortable cabins, a smooth ride, and excellent fuel economy from diesel and V6 engines with eight-speed transmissions.
Under the 1500's Hood
The 3.6-liter V-6 is the base engine in the Ram 1500. Rated at 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, it has enough power for hauling and is EPA-rated 17/25 mpg, or 18 mpg city on HFE models, making it the most efficient pickup in its class. The eight-speed automatic works well with this engine. To enhance fuel efficiency, the Ram has a lightweight frame that uses high-strength steel, aerodynamic grille shutters, low-rolling-resistance tires, pulse-width modulation for the alternator and power accessories, and a thermal management system. Its tow ratings are a few hundred pounds less than that of the V-6 versions of the Ford F-150, GMC Sierra, and Chevy Silverado, but if you are doing a lot of towing you are likely looking at the 5.7-liter V-8.
Design of RAM 1500
Cabins range from the simple and unadorned Tradesman to the luxury of the Laramie Longhorn, which has some of the finest wood grain and contrast stitching available in a vehicle of its kind. The upper trim levels are particularly hospitable for long tows. The Ram is big on style and its aerodynamic big-rig design looks good. Every trim level gets its own grille design, seven at last count, and you might like some better than others. Special grilles on the 2016 Ram Laramie Limited and Ram Rebel distinguish those models, each a unique design that replaces the traditional crosshair and replaces the Ram logo with the Ram nameplate. The designs are controversial and we are not sure we like them.
