2017 RAM 1500 at Northwest Dodge for Houston, TX

The 2017 RAM 1500 is the most unique and beloved truck on the market, highly acclaimed for its innovative powertrain, impressively comfortable interior, and fantastic technology. The 1500 offers a comfortable ride during any drive, whether you are towing a heavy trailer or traveling with an empty bed. Additionally, the top 1500 trims can rival the best luxury vehicles on the market. The 2017 RAM 1500 will see some updates for the new year, with the most notable change being the now standard eight-speed automatic transmission with every engine. Additionally, RAM has shuffled some of the features around in the trims, meaning more standard accessories.

The 1500 is available with three different engines, and RAM has ensured that every driver can find their perfect option by offering a gas-powered V6, a diesel V6, and a tremendous V8. Rear-wheel drive is standard, though there are two different four-wheel drive options, including one that enhances the off-road capability. The standard engine is the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine, which is gas-powered and delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, the V6 has a towing maximum of 7,610 pounds and a payload maximum of 1,890 pounds. The other two engine options include the amazing EcoDiesel, which is a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6, as well as the powerful 5.7-liter V8 that delivers 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.

Design of RAM 1500

RAM offers their 1500 pickup truck with three different cab styles, in two-door and four-door options, including an extended four-door. These cabs – called the regular, quad, and crew – will be available with different bed lengths. The ability to customize the RAM 1500 is unparalleled by the competition, as the brand offers over ten different trim levels, a wide range of optional packages, and many of their best accessories as standalone features. This will help drivers who work in specific industries to customize the 1500 to their specific needs. If you primarily need your 1500 at the job site, RAM has you covered with the base Tradesman trim. It comes standard with a seven-pin wiring harness and Class IV receiver hitch. Customers can equip the innovative Uconnect system with a 5- or 8.4-inch touchscreen, and this system works alongside the driver to offer support, entertainment, and optional navigation. A favorite trim among off-road enthusiasts is the 1500 Rebel; it features tow hooks, front/rear Bilstein shock absorbers, power adjustable pedals, and performance gearing for unmatched capability.
