About Ram 1500 Crew Cab

The 2017 Ram 1500 is a worthy rival to the best-selling Ford F-150, not to mention the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra siblings. Like those full-size pickups, the Ram is available in a wide variety of configurations, from a basic single-cab work truck to a leather-lined Limited model boasting premium amenities and room enough for a family to spread out. The Ram Rebel, meanwhile, aims to appeal to off-road enthusiasts. The Ram 1500 stands out with its big, bold, semi-truck-derived styling, yet offers surprisingly comfortable driving manners. The Ram further stands out from its rivals as the only half-ton truck to offer a diesel engine, in this case a V6 that also grants the Ram impressive fuel economy.

"I have owned my truck for 2 1/2 years. The gas milage will average 20mph city and hwy combined. On the interstate at 70mph my truck will average 24mpg. Which better than I expected from the 5.7 hemi. I pull a 4000lb boat a lot and the mileage is about 15mpg. While towing the boat I sometimes forget it back there because there very little difference in handling. Performance, this is the fastest most powerful truck or car I have ever owned. I try to avoid fast starts or aggressive driving but the power is there if needed. The truck is comfortable and has a lot of nice features. The only negative for me is the looks. I prefer the looks of the Tundra or F150 but all and all I would buy again."
