Take the 2015 Dodge Ram 1500, for instance. This truck is most noted for its rugged build, exceptional materials quality, and quiet ride. But, there are so many more reasons to invest in this truck. Continue reading to find out why.
Available Diesel Engine
If you're looking for a truck that stands apart from the rest, the 2015 Ram 1500 is the ultimate choice due to its available 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine. In fact, the 2015 Ram 1500 stands as the sole pickup truck in its segment that offers a diesel power. Paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Ram 1500's diesel engine produces 240 horsepower and will save you money on gas, which for many is a top priority.
Optional V8 Engine
A truck doesn't have to be brand new to provide efficient power and strength, and the 2015 Ram 1500 is proof of this. If you're someone who requires muscle under the hood, the 1500 comes with one of two engines: a standard V6 or an ultra-powerful 5.7-liter V8. The more powerful V8 engine can be found in 1500 trim levels, like the Sport, Laramie, Longhorn, and Laramie Limited. For those V8's paired to an automatic transmission, you will find them controlled by a rotary knob located on the central instrument panel.
For 2WD and 4WD, the 2015 Ram 1500 comes with an auto-shift feature. The auto 4WD mode has the ability to sense road conditions, and will automatically switch between 2- and 4-wheel power by itself. This is a nice feature because it eliminates the need for the driver to adjust drive modes manually.
Advanced Coil-Spring Suspension
Looking for off-road adventure? The 2015 Ram 1500 is a prime choice. With sensitive coil-spring suspension and steering that can handle even the sharpest of turns, the 1500 has what it takes to make off-road travel a thrilling experience.
But there's more! The 1500's Outdoorsman trim even includes extra off-road equipment to add to this truck's adventurous personality. It features:
- Fender flares
- Underbody skid plates
- All-terrain tires
- Tow hooks
- Larger fuel tank
- RamBox weatherproof bedside bins
Safety in Crash Scores and More
Whether you use the 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 for errands, daily commutes or for off-road fun, you'll be pleased to know that it provides excellent safety in all situations. In government crash tests, the 1500 received four-out-of-five stars in overall safety, and a full five stars in side-impact crash testing. What's also impressive is the 1500's average stop time of 135 feet – an impressive distance considering its weight.
An interesting piece of equipment available in the 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 is its air suspension feature. 1500s with the air suspension system allow the driver to flip a switch and drop the vehicle two inches. Not only does this feature make climbing in and out of the 1500 easier, but it also makes lift-over height much more agreeable, especially for heavy or awkward items.
