Combine that with available air-suspention and the new Ram has al lot to offer potential pick-up truck buyers.

2013 Ram 1500 pick up truck
The new 2013 Ram 1500 is the Ram Truck brand's latest entry into the
ultra-competitive full-size, light-duty pickup truck segment. The new truck
represents the brand's first iteration to its most recognized truck since
the inception of the Ram nameplate in 2011.
The new 2013 Ram 1500 is the latest innovation off Ram's full-size,
body-on-frame truck architecture, designed, engineered and executed to
strike at the emotional chords of the "Guts and Glory" mindset of
enthusiasts and potential buyers. In form and function, the new 2013 Ram
1500 conveys boldness, valor, virtue and power-oriented capability like no
other in its class, but it does so, aesthetically and functionally, at a
2013 RAM 1500 Laramie HEMI Test Drive & Pickup Truck Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ram/1500/2013/ Autobytel recently named the 2013
RAM 1500 pickup the Truck of the Year. This truck received a nice facelift
consisting of a new front end, wheels, and an all new interior. On top of
all that the 2013 RAM 1500 has a few added features and technologies that
really put this truck in a class of its own. There are 39 different trims
that allow you to choose between cab sizes, bed sizes and engine sizes. The
base model tradesman has a starting price of $22,640 while the top of the
line Laramie Longhorn costs $44,325.
RAM trucks are one of the biggest names in the pickup world. Formerly under
the Dodge brand, RAM has now been broken off onto their own. On the outside
the 2013 RAM 1500 is all truck with its big front grille and massive
bumper. This particular truck here is a quad cab and features the RAMBOX
cargo management system which is essentially storage compartments in the
rear fenders. These reduce the cargo room in the bed itself but are high
useful. There is also a standard bed bar system.
The 2013 RAM 1500 comes with 3 different engine choices. The first is a 3.6
liter Pentastar V-6 engine that produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of
torque. The next engine is a 4.7 liter V-8 that makes 310 horsepower and 330 lb-ft o
torque. The last engine is the big HEMI 5.7 liter V-8 that produces 395 horsepower and 407
lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission is a 6-speed automatic, but you
can opt for an 8-speed which gets better fuel economy.
One great feature on the 2013 Ram 1500 is the ability to raise and lower
the truck. These air springs can raise the vehicle to add ground clearance
or lower the truck for handling and to reduce drag on the highway. One of
the areas that the RAM pickup truck has come a long way over the years is
the interior. RAM truck interiors can almost rival luxury cars. The
steering wheel and seats are very comfortable, the materials and surfaces
are high quality, the sunroof is a nice bonus, and the center stack is well
thought out and well designed featuring an 8.4-inch UCONNECT touch screen.
Overall the cabin is comfortable and well laid out, perfect for the long

Join me as I drive the 2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel, the only diesel 1/2-ton
pickup truck sold in America. In perhaps the biggest shake up in this
high-volume and highly competitive segment, Chrysler jammed a 3.0L turbo diesel V6 under the RAM's hood and mated
it to a ZF 8-Speed automatic to create the best towing rig for the money.
