It may be hard to believe, but it’s already time for the 2017 models of all your favorite FCA US LLC vehicles to being to hit our lot here at Village Motors Inc. Drivers from Millersburg, OH and beyond are heading into our dealership to test drive the newest Dodge vans, RAM trucks, Jeep SUVs, and Chrysler cars, and one that they’ve been most impressed with is the 2017 RAM 1500. The RAM 1500 name will be familiar to pickup truck fans, but the new 2017 iteration brings plenty of new features to the forefront, making it a top pick in the heavy-duty truck segment.
The 2017 RAM 1500 is a full-size pickup truck available in multiple body styles. Buyers can choose between three different cabs — regular, Quad, and Crew — as well as 10 trim levels and three bed sizes. If you’re looking for an introductory, affordable trim, check out the base Tradesman, which comes standard with 17-inch wheels, black bumpers/grille/door handles, a seven-pin wiring harness, a Class IV receiver hitch, a locking tailgate, a spray-in bedliner, vinyl upholstery, and a six-speaker sound system with a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack.
Under the hood of this new RAM truck for sale, you’ll find one of three different engines. First up is the standard 3.6-liter gasoline V6 engine that cranks out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. This is matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which is found paired with all three engines. Next up is a 5.7-liter V8 engine rated at 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Drivers looking for something a bit more fuel-efficient should look into the 3.0-liter diesel EcoDiesel V6 engine, which is rated at 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.
