The 2015 Ram 1500 takes pleasure in the ultimate brand name devotion of virtually any full-sized pickup truck, so we are never shocked when drivers choose one above rivals such as the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, 2015 Toyota Tundra, and 2015 Ford F-150. With unique components, the best performance scores in its tier, and a remarkable amount of cargo flexibility, the new 1500 is a truck unrivaled.
The 2015 Ram 1500 is the only light pickup in the nation to deliver a diesel motor. The class-exclusive 3.0 L EcoDiesel V6 offers Estevan and Indian Head motorists with the easy torque– an incomparable 420 lb-ft– stability, and the performance of diesel. It’s also biodiesel-capable. For a little bit more horse power, there’s even an acclaimed 3.6 L Pentastar V6. Shown amongst Ward’s 10 Best Engines several occasions, this goliath produces 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, while motorists who need monstrous capability can opt for a 5.7 L HEMI V8, which grants a consolidated production of 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque.
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, 2015 Toyota Tundra, and 2015 Ford F-150 all neglect to allow a diesel motor, and no alternative matches the award-winning origin of the Pentastar.
The choice to furnish the 2015 Ram 1500 with an EcoDiesel motor was taken to give vehicle owners with a high-torque, low-maintenance outfit, but the most outstanding numbers come when you think about gas mileage.
The 3.0 L EcoDiesel is paired to class-exclusive TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission with 40 assorted shift guides aiding to constantly enhance your combination of strength and proficiency.
The 2015 Ram 1500 supplies best-in-class cargo adaptability, with more options, dimensions, and cargo solutions offered than in the past. Ten distinct trim levels are present– from the practical ST to the extravagant Laramie Limited– much more than the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, 2015 Toyota Tundra, and 2015 Ford F-150 can deliver. Generally there are even 3 cab arrangements and 3 box lengths.The Ram 1500 also flaunts a class-exclusive RamBox, among the most renowned cargo-management systems on the market. With two large drainable and lockable storage area elements and a bed extender/divider, the RamBox is the supreme utility add-on.
We were sad to return this truck to its owners but happy for our time with this nice riding, powerful, dare we say luxurious truck that rides like a car. We hear the 2017 redesign will bring more power, air ride suspension across the board, standard backup cameras, and direct injection for even better low end torque and higher fuel economy. Until that arrives, we believe the ram is a contender with the best of them.
