If you want a hard-working truck that can double as a little limo, the 2016 Ram 1500 wraps brawn with beauty, delivering best-in-class fuel economy as well as some pretty impressive towing and payload ratings.
If you’re looking for one of the most comfortable rides found on a big truck, the 2016 Ram 1500’s ingenious coil-spring and multi-link rear suspension delivers it. The Ram’s steering and road manners are among best-in-class, too. The four-door Crew Cab has four real doors, real leg room and head room for rear-seat passengers, and extra thoughtful storage touches.
ECODIESEL V6 ENGINE: A diesel engine in a half-ton truck seems as natural as chocolate and peanut butter. Ram’s 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 delivers fuel economy approaching 30 mpg and offers 420 lb-ft of torque (more than the Hemi V8) and 240 horsepower.
The Ram’s UConnect multimedia and connectivity system is the most user-friendly setup in any pickup truck, combining an 8.4-inch center touchscreen with a configurable gauge display. Via voice commands or steering-wheel controls or Uconnect’s touchscreen, the Ram opens up clear channels of on-the-go communication, with quick responses to taps on its screen and easily comprehended functions. There’s also a 7.0-inch configurable gauge cluster available that replaces a conventional gauge cluster and can quickly communicate information with loads of customization and up to three readouts at a time. For example, the driver might configure the transmission temperature gauge to be in the foreground when towing. An auxiliary port is provided, along with ports for USB and SD cards and iPod control via USB. Rain-sensing wipers, power-folding side mirrors, and a power-sliding rear window with defrost.
MOTOR TREND: Ram is proud of its 2016 lineup. The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel with eight-speed automatic can tow up to 9,200 pounds and achieves up to 29 mpg highway, the best fuel economy of any half-ton pickup. The 2016 Ram 1500 will win over full-size truck buyers looking for a diesel offering and an opulent interior.
Car & Driver: We like the Ram well enough to have brought one into the long-term fleet a while back, and it rarely sat idle. The diesel powertrain with its low-end grunt and fuel economy is great for long-distance hauling. And the eight-speed—the transmission of choice for many luxury automakers, such as BMW—shifts incredibly smoothly and adds to the Ram’s over-the-road sophistication. The Ram 1500 delivers one of the best rides we’ve experienced in a full-size pickup to date. The cabin is solid and well insulated from outside noise, and the new seats are supremely supportive.
In essence, the Ram 1500 excels at just about anything…
