Overview
Although it's now three years since the Ram 1500's last redesign, the big pickup has kept current thanks to continual updates. Take the truck's automatic transmission, for instance. Mechanically speaking, the five-speed automatic previously used in the Ram really featured six forward gears (second gear actually consisted of two gears--one accessed during upshifting, and another used during downshifts). The "new" six-speed transmission is virtually identical to the five-speed, but it has been recalibrated so that both of those "second gears" are now individual gears. A revised torque converter is also bundled with the transmission, which allegedly improves fuel economy. The Ram's segment-exclusive coil-spring, multilink rear suspension helps it stand out, as do other practical innovations, such as the lockable RamBox storage bins in the fenders. Like most pickups, the Ram is available in numerous configurations, with three cab styles, three bed lengths, three engines, and numerous trim levels. Electronic and infotainment choices include a media center with a 30-gigabyte hard drive, a navigation system, a surround-sound audio system, and an optional rear-seat DVD entertainment system. The Ram 1500 is far from a show truck, though. Its available 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 produces 390 hp and 407 lb-ft of torque, which is more than enough for some serious hauling.
