Trucks are among the most versatile vehicles you can buy. Dodge County is excited to offer our customers the RAM 1500, a light-duty truck that appeals to a broad cross-section of buyers. In fact, the RAM 1500 ranks 2 out of 6 in 'Full Size Pickup Trucks' according to US News and World Report. The RAM 1500 is praised for its gentle ride, upscale interior, and impressive fuel economy, not to mention its top safety ratings, and we're thrilled to have it in our inventory of new RAM trucks.
The 2016 RAM 1500 is a truck ready to meet any challenge, from the jobsite to the campsite and every mile in between. The RAM 1500 has a smooth ride and comfortable seats, including its rear seating and overall layout. Not only is the RAM 1500 quicker than other trucks in the market, such as the Silverado, but it feels powerful in real-world driving. The acceleration of the RAM 1500 is above average for a truck its size and it is able to stop easily. Trucks are often not known for their excellent fuel economy, but the RAM 1500 stands above average. The base RAM gets an EPA-estimated 17/25 mpg city/highway. Not only is the interior made with premium materials and plush seating, but the cabin is quiet and offers ample storage. Plus, this RAM model's infotainment system is top-of-the-line and features a larger touchscreen display than its competitors.
No two trucks are the same, but both the RAM 1500 and Chevrolet 1500 include cylinder deactivation systems, which are designed to improve fuel economy. Each truck also includes hill-start assist and trailer-sway control. In regards to fuel efficiency, the RAM 1500 model's 3.6-liter V6 engine is more fuel efficient than that of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Another shortcoming of the Silverado 1500 is its lack of rear cabin storage, especially for those who haul around tools or other equipment. When it comes to safety, both trucks receive the best score of 'Good' in the moderate-overlap frontal-impact test conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. In addition to these crash-test ratings, both the RAM 1500 and Chevrolet 1500 are available with technology that automatically dials emergency services personnel in the event that the airbags deploy.
