The 2016 Ram 1500 capitalizes on a truckload of exclusive, pioneering, fuel-saving systems, including an eight-speed automatic transmission, thermal management system, pulse-width modulation (PWM) and active aerodynamics with grille shutters and air suspension.
The Ram 1500 continues to move forward with two mid-year 2015 offerings that carry into the 2016 model year - the Ram 1500 Rebel and Ram 1500 Laramie Limited.
The Ram 1500 Rebel offers an off-road-style package. The Rebel drops right into a core segment of the truck market with unique design cues and mechanical innovation backed by Ram Truck engineering.
Ram takes the Laramie Limited -- the benchmark in truck opulence -- to an even higher level of sophistication and attention to detail. Featuring premium materials, such as all-black, full-leather seating; real wood interior components; and unique badges, Limited is a "black-tie" luxury alternative to the popular southwestern-themed Laramie Longhorn edition pickup.
The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine offers 305 horsepower, 269 lb.-ft. of torque and best-in-class gasoline fuel economy of 25 mpg.
The 2016 Ram 1500 leads pickup truck fuel economy with the exclusive 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine delivering 240 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque at 29 mpg. The EcoDiesel engine is mated to the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Together, the powertrain system delivers an outstanding combination of fuel efficiency and towing capability up to 9,200 pounds.
The legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine with fuel-saving cylinder shut-off and VVT provides up to 22 mpg, 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque.
Bed lighting is now available on the Ram 1500. Bright LEDs shine from the rear corners next to the tailgate, giving owners better visibility when the workday lasts into the evening.
