What it is: The Ram 1500 competes against the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra in the light-duty, full-size pickup truck market and offers unique features like an available RamBox cargo management system and four-corner air suspension. The heavy-duty Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks are covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.
The 1500 is available in three body styles (regular cab, quad cab and crew cab) and with three cargo box lengths (from 5 feet 7 inches to 8 feet). It's offered with a choice of gas V-6 or V-8 power or a turbo-diesel V-6.
A backup camera is now standard, and high-end Limited Tungsten and farm-oriented Harvest editions of the Ram 1500 are newly available. Rebel versions can now have a leather interior.
The available 8.4-inch multimedia system now has a higher-resolution touchscreen with pinch-to-zoom functionality, incorporates HD Radio and available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Available emergency communication services are provided by SiriusXM Guardian, and there's also now a switch in the cargo bed for the available LED bed lights.
From the 2017 State Fair of Texas, Pickuptrucks.com's Mark Williams takes a look at the new Southfork edition for Ram trucks.
