To help you get to know the latest Ram 1500 model, Manhattan Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram (JCDR) put together the following truck review. Check it out below!

2017 Ram 1500: Styles and Setups

�To suit the needs and jobs of a huge market of buyers, the 2017 Ram 1500 pickup is available in an array of trim levels, cab sizes, bed lengths, and engine types. Regardless of the Ram 1500 you choose, outer confidence and inner utility come standard.

Trim levels range from the practical-minded Tradesman to the top-of-the-line Limited that takes your trucking to a realm of luxury. In between these two trim levels, there's seven body styles that allow you to choose your preferred ratio of bells to whistles.

Three different cab sizes with seating for three to six passengers and three different bed lengths-short, regular, and long-allow you to custom pick your truck based on the workers you'll have on board and the haul magnitude you'll handle most.

Raw Power from Three Capable Engines

The 2017 Ram 1500 offers truck buyers three advanced engines to choose from, allowing you to employ the power source that produces the efficiency, alacrity, and muscle your daily tasks demand.

�For supreme efficiency and strength, choose the available 3.0L Ecodiesel V6 engine that offers an exemplary EPA-estimated 21/29 MPG city/highway, 420 lb-ft of torque, and the title of the only diesel engine option in its class.*

For top towing capability, the 5.7L Hemi V8 engine is beyond willing to take on your toughest hauls. Tipping the scales at 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, Hemi-powered Ram 1500s can shoulder 1,880 pounds in their beds and up to 10,620 in tow (when properly equipped).

For a happy medium mix of efficiency and strength, stick with the starting 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that offers a highly sought-after balance of great power and gas return.

*Based on the Light-Duty Pickup Segment.

The 2017 Ram 1500 Features Tow-Minded Technology

Hitching up to a trailer in the city?�Fuhgeddaboudit!�Luckily, all Ram 1500s can be equipped with advanced elements that make towing easier from start to finish.

If you know you'll be taking your pickup on loaded-down travels, spring for the 2017 Ram 1500's available Active-Level? Four-Corner Air Suspension that gives you the added flexibility of five ride height settings and the reassurance of automatic load leveling to keep the ride smooth and steady.

Additionally, all Ram 1500s come with a trailer hitch built right into the truck bumper, meaning you're already more than halfway through the headache of hitching up a trailer.��

Seeing is believing when it comes to making a secure trailer-to-truck connection. With the help of Ram's ParkView� Rear Back-Up Camera (optional on the base Tradesman and standard on all other trims), doing so in tight spaces quickly becomes second nature.
