The 2017 Ram 1500 Successfully Challenges its Rivals with Proven Capability

In a truck market segment that has long been dominated by the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado, there has never been a more competitive rival than the all-new 2017 Ram 1500. Read on to hear about the many impressive aspects of Alabama's favorite truck, and come visit our Fort Payne Ram dealership to grace the driver's seat yourself.

Power & Prestige in the 2017 Truck That's Captivating Greater Gadsden

The large and bold design of the Ram 1500 carries the weight of a semi-truck behind it, while managing to offer an interior with a level of comfort and extravagance that can't be outdone by its adversaries. It is also the only half-ton truck that can come equipped with a diesel engine in the form of its 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6, capable of a greater fuel economy that previously achievable in a Ram truck. Nowhere else near Fort Payne, AL, or the greater Birmingham area, can you find a vehicle like this alongside a staff as passionate as our at Basswood Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

Dive into the Powerful Performance and Comfortable Cabin of the 1500

With three available powertrains to choose from, including the aforementioned EcoDiesel V6 engine, truck enthusiasts will find a lot to enjoy with this trio of options. The base 3.6-liter V6 engine is very effective choice that will satisfy most Ram owners with its 305-horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, while the much beefier 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine can pack a hefty 395-horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The interior strives to offer plenty of room into a cozy yet practical design.

The available 8.4-inch touchscreen with Uconnect integration is now standard across the model's various trims, offering one of the strongest infotainment suites to every new Ram driver. With the choice between 11 different trims, from a basic pickup truck to an off-road huller that pampers its passengers with luxury, it truly shows how well the Ram 1500 is built to impress - all across its 2017 model lineup.
