If you've been searching for a rugged full-size truck that packs the latest in in-vehicle entertainment along with best-in-class fuel economy, the 2013 Ram 1500 should be at the top of your list.
Every modern full-size truck on the market can handle virtually anything you throw at it. So if durability and towing power are your chief requirements in a full-size pickup, choose your favorite bran
The new Ram 1500 takes the old automotive epithet of "drives like a truck" and transforms it into a compliment. While ideal for towing, most pickups employ a less-forgiving leaf-spring rear suspension setup. The Ram 1500, on the other hand, utilizes a coil-spring rear suspension to provide a high level of comfort with or without a heavy load. The difference in ride quality between the coil-spring configuration and the available air suspension is minimal, but the pneumatic system's multiple ride heights aid fuel economy, load-in he

"I have owned my 2013 RAM Bighorn for about 2 months. I love almost everything about this truck and after researching other similar trucks (Tundra, Chevy)I found this one to be the best buy...and the best looking. The Crew Cab has a lot of extra legroom in the back and I love the storage compartments in the floor and under the seats. The ride is very smooth and I can feel the power of the Hemi every time I touch the gas pedal. So far I have been slightly disappointed with the gas mileage...if you use midgrade or premium gas and are light on the pedal you will be lucky to get the advertised 13mpg in the city...but hey its a Hemi and I expected to take a hit on the MPG. I am surprised that RAM did not employ some of the same features as on my 2011 Dodge Durango (push button start, keyless touch entry) but I love the power rear box window and the multitude of storage cubby's and cup holders. I highly recommend spending the extra cash to get the Uconnect system...Over all, I absolutely love my truck and it was the best new vehicle purchase I ever made."

"I have always been a GM guy. I bought this Ram because it was sitting next to a GMC just like it. Theywere the same year, same color, same tires, wheels, options, and you get the point. The GMC was more expensive with 10k more miles. It did not accelerate as well or get as good mpg. The Ram has a rougher ride and with only a 5 speed transmission I was worried at first would not keep up with the GM. It was faster, better acceleration, and just overall more power. I may never buy another GM if Ram keeps getting better. Finally, the Ram Boxes are a must. you can put anything in them. They will work as a cooler and hold water or like extra storage for your 6 shotguns when you go hunting."
