New For 2013
The Ram 1500 is now available with an eight-speed automatic transmission, a more powerful V-6 engine, air springs, fuel-saving automatic stop/start, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and an 8.4-inch touch-screen infotainment system.
Overview
For 2013, a thorough midcycle update to the Ram 1500 delivers even more comfort, luxury, and technology than the truck already had. A new front fascia sports vertical foglights, larger front tow-hook openings, and a larger grille. A new 3.6-liter V-6 replaces the tired 3.7-liter unit. This engine has a higher output in the Ram—305 hp and 269 lb-ft—than in other Chrysler applications. Paired with the eight-speed transmission, this strong, smooth powerplant is quite lively at about 4000 rpm. Single-gear downshifts happen early on slight uphill grades, and full-throttle kickdown occurs quickly. Even better, at 17/25 mpg with rear-wheel drive, the Ram is able to claim the best fuel economy of any full-size truck. Going from under the hood to under the body, there’s another major upgrade for 2013: an air suspension. Since 2009, all Ram 1500 models have ridden on coil springs rather than traditional leaf springs, giving the truck a comfortable ride. It gets even better when you add air springs, available on all Quad Cab and crew-cab trim levels. The new suspension allows four inches of ride-height adjustability and has a self-leveling feature that will lift the rear end back to normal ride height twenty seconds after a load has been placed on the rear axle. The 1500 has needed a refresh for a while now, and Ram delivered.
