“It’s got the looks, the muscles and the talent. Specifically, the Ram 1500 is undeniably handsome and has everything you need in a tough work truck while also providing its passengers with a welcoming cabin. The powerful engine lineup includes a brawny Hemi V8 that can accelerate a four-wheel-drive Ram 1500 Crew Cab to 60 mph in less than 8 seconds and tow over 10,000 pounds. Meanwhile, the interior is impressive both in its sound ergonomic design and high overall quality.”

“I like the interior features and amenities,” said one owner. “The ride is very nice. It has plenty of storage. So far, I’ve been pleased with the fuel economy, being a full-size pickup.”

“I am extremely pleased with it,” said another. “It has the center console and back-up camera that is more helpful than I would have thought. I’m also very happy with the factory spray-in bedliner.”
