What powers the 1500?

Buyers of the 1500 will be given the option of choosing between one of three engine options. The standard engine is a tried and true classic, the Pentastar V-6. With 305 horsepower, 269 lb.-ft. of torque, and 25 mpg the Pentastar is well-rounded and more than capable of taking care of your everyday needs. If you're looking for something with a little more power than simply upgrade to the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, you'll find yourself boosted 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque while maintaining a steady 22 mpg. The third and final option is the high-tech exclusive 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6. The EcoDiesel sacrifices a bit of horsepower, dipping down to 240, but maxes out the 1500's torque and mpg, supplying drivers with 420 lb.-ft. of torque and a nearly unparalleled 29 mpg.

How much room does the 1500 provide?

One of the most appealing characteristics of the 1500 is its highly customizable nature. Speaking purely in spatial terms there are six choices to pick from. The standard is the Regular Cab which offers two bed lengths, 8-ft. and 6-ft. 4-inches. If you need a little extra room you can purchase the four-door Quad Cab, which comes solely with the 6-ft. 4-inch bed. The third option provides buyers with the most legroom and increased door size as well as either a 5-ft. 7-inch bed or a 6-ft. 4-inch bed. These choices are all spread out across 11 separate trims making purchasing the 2018 Ram 1500 an incredibly personal experience.

What contributes to Rams noteworthy comfort?

Trucks, as a class, aren't normally recognized for their comfort; then again, the 1500 isn't a normal truck. On top of the previously mentioned comforts that the roomy interiors of the Crew and Quad Cabs provide, this year's model offers the advanced comforts of an industry leading Uconnect infotainment system, optional European-sourced wood paneling (for an added air of sophistication), and an optional 7-inch digital information cluster. But it's more than just a beautiful interior; the drive has an increased layer of comfort achieved through the employment of a unique rear-coil suspension. Combine all of it and you have the template of old-school strength with enhanced modern comfort.
