Powertrains and Efficiency
Trucks need to boast both the power to get you anywhere and the efficiency to save you from spending too much time and money at the pump. The 2016 Ram 1500 allows Indian Head and Melville drivers to choose from three powertrains to enjoy such performance.
Class-Exclusive 3.0L EcoDiesel V6: Produces 240 horsepower and a Class-Leading 420 lb-ft of torque, plus Best-in-Class efficiency ratings of up to 11.3 L/100 km in the city and 8.0 on the highway.
3.6L Pentastar VVT V6: This multi award-winner offers up to 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque, and earns up to 12.9 L/100 km in the city and 9.3 on the highway.
5.7L HEMI VVT V8: The HEMI V8 puts you in command of a staggering 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, and earns up to either 17.1 L/100 km in the city and 12 on the highway with a 6-speed automatic transmission or 15.8 and 10.9 with an 8-speed automatic.
The 2016 Ram 1500 is, without a doubt, one of the most capable vehicles in its class. Indian Head and Melville drivers will be able to tackle anything when they sit behind the wheel.
Maximum Towing: Each 1500 comes as standard with a 4- and 7-pin wiring harness. However, the available Class IV hitch receiver and Trailer Brake Control system allows you to tow a colossal 10,640 lb (4,826 kg).
Maximum Payload: In addition to an exceptional tow rating, the 1500 boasts a maximum payload of 1,890 lb (857 kg), so you can pile the truck bed high without the need to worry.
The 1500 even provides an electronic shift-on-demand transfer case, meaning that drivers can switch between two 4×4 settings. 4-HI locks each drive shaft to ensure unstoppable traction and towing power; 4-LO delivers a 2.64:1 gear reduction ratio for clambering over obstacles with ease.
Interior Space and Versatility
Your Ram 1500 allows for Best-in-Class cargo versatility, with three available cab configurations (Regular, Quad, and Crew) and three available box lengths (5’7″, 6’4″, and 8′).
It also provides plenty of innovative interior storage solutions to supplement the outstanding space on offer in the Class-Exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System, which offers weatherproof storage nooks and all-new LED box lighting. Inside, you’ll find under-seat storage bins, behind-the-seat storage, and Class-Exclusive in-floor storage.
Comfort and Convenience Features
Too many manufacturers believe that driving a truck shouldn’t mean having access to the latest technology. Luckily, Ram is not one of them. That’s why the new 1500 is offered with a vast range of exceptional technologies, including:
Alpine Audio System: Your music will come through 10 speakers, a dual voice coil subwoofer, and a 7.1 surround sound amplifier, with the system calling upon 506-watts of power.
7-Inch Customizable In-Cluster Display: Vital vehicle data, such as temperature settings, fuel economy, trailer braking, and engine performance, is provided in full color within the instrument cluster, with a ‘roller menu’ providing easy customizability.
Park-Sense Front and Rear Park Assist System: Employs 6 sensors in the front and 4 at the rear to detect obstacles in your path. An audible chime varies in intensity as you get closer, allowing for easy maneuvering in tight areas.
