Edmunds Reviews New 2017 Ram 1500: With Three Engines, 10 Trim Levels Come Endless Possibilities in a Light-Duty Pickup
The new 2017 Ram 1500 is a light-duty pickup that can fit the needs of the worksite, ranch or suburban ranch, concludes Edmunds.com in a new review. The 2017 Ram 1500’s unique coil-spring rear suspension gives it a smooth unloaded ride, but it can still tow your trailer like a champ with its stout gasoline V8 or torquey turbodiesel V6. Excellent cargo management options and an attractive interior complete the package.
Perhaps one of the most impressive elements of owning a Ram 1500 is the excellent ride quality, notes Edmunds.com. On the highway, it’s smooth, quiet and relatively unfazed by even significant bumps. The adjustable air suspension makes the ride even better. It’s a unique feature for this class that allows the truck to drop 2 inches to ease liftover and step-in heights when parked.
The 2017 Ram 1500 has multiple body styles. The regular cab (two doors) generally seats three and is available with either a 6-foot-4-inch or an 8-foot cargo bed. The Quad Cab (four doors) seats six passengers and comes only with the 6-foot-4 bed. The Crew Cab (also four doors, but bigger rear doors) increases rear-seat legroom and is available with either a 5-foot-7 or 6-foot-4 bed. There are 10 trim levels: Tradesman, Express, HFE, SLT, Big Horn/Lone Star, Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited.
