What are the engine choices for the RAM 1500?

The 2017 Ram 1500 is the only truck in its class that offers a diesel engine, the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6. This engine provides more torque (420 lb-ft) with added fuel savings. Its towing capacity is 10,640 pounds. The diesel engine is standard on the HFE trim and available on many of the other trims. The two other engine options are the 3.6-liter V6 engine and the 5.7-liter V8. The V6 is good for 269 lb-ft of torque and 305 horsepower, while the V8 puts out 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque and can tow up to 7,610 pounds. Standard with all of the engine options is the Torqueflight eight-speed automatic transmission. This transmission offers responsive acceleration in lower gears, and it is designed with a thermal management system to maintain the transmission fluid's temperature to aid with fuel economy.

What options are available to customize my RAM 1500?

The first step in customizing your truck is deciding on the cab size and bed length. The RAM 1500 comes in three cab sizes, the Regular, which seats three, the Quad which seats six, and the larger Crew Cab, which also seats six but has increased rear legroom. If you select the Regular Cab, you have the option of a 6-foot-4-inch bed or an 8-foot bed. The Quad Cab seats six passengers and comes only with the 6-foot-4 bed, while the Crew Cab offers a 5-foot-7-inch or 6-foot-4-inch bed. The next step is deciding on your trim level and powertrain. There are eight trim levels to choose from. If you are on a budget and need a basic work truck, the Tradesman will suit you. If you like a bit more technology and more convenience features, go with the SLT trim, which adds features such as power accessories, keyless entry, satellite radio and Bluetooth. For more luxury, go with the Laramie, which has leather seats, wood interior trim, driver memory settings, and more. The V6 engine is standard on the first five trim levels, but you can opt up to the larger V8 if you prefer. The diesel is available on all the trims except the Express, Sport and Rebel trims. Speaking of the Rebel, this is RAM's off-road variant. If you like off-roading, the Rebel is fully equipped with 4WD, upgraded shocks, and other off-road specific accessories. If you simply want to outfit your truck with 4WD, all trims offer a 4WD option. Finally, select your paint color, interior color, package options and optional accessories, and you have your custom truck!

What type of safety technology is available with the 2017 RAM 1500?

The Ram 1500 has many standard safety features, along with optional advanced safety features. Standard on all RAM 1500 trucks are four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability control, trailer-sway control, hill start assist, and multiple airbags. Higher trims and various packages add a rear backup camera with a parking assistant, an electronic trailer-brake controller, and an emergency telematics system that functions with Uconnect Access.
