As Canada’s only diesel 1/2 ton pickup, the Ram 1500 is something of a legend, and maybe it’s because so many of them are still on the road decades after they were first driven off the lot. One study found that of the total pickups sold over 27 years from manufacturers like Ford, Chevy, and GMC, 80% of Ram trucks are still on the road, more than any other manufacturer included in the study. The Ram 1500 isn’t just durable; it’s fuel efficient, powerful, and this year it returns with more cutting-edge safety features and technology. Go for the one and only. Go for the Ram 1500.
You want powerful performance, but you also want options. The 2017 Ram 1500 lets you choose between three engines. A three-time winner of Ward's "10-Best Engines," the 3.6L Pentastar V6 Engine gives you 305 horsepower, 269 lb-ft, and 9.3L/100 km for highway driving. The powerful 5.7L HEMI V8 delivers a sizzling 395 horsepower, 410 lb-ft of torque, 10,650 towing capacity, and 1,820 payload, making it the top choice for all your tough jobs. Looking for power and economy? The 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine has 240 horsepower, 420 lb-ft of torque, 8.0 L/100 km of highway driving, and can even drive for up to 16,000 km before needing an oil change.
A bold design perfectly blended with comfort and functionality. Go for bucket seats or stick with the tried and true 40/20/40 bench seating. The all-new available centre console bin incorporates a smartphone/tablet holder with moulded insert to fit devices of various sizes. Rear under-seat storage, available fold-flat load floor, and a space behind the front seat of the Regular Cab so large you can store a 18.9L container behind it makes loading and unloading your gear a piece of cake. The advanced Uconnect multimedia centre lets you control your music, phone, and navigation all in one place. With Voice Command, you can even change your music, send text messages, make calls, and enter destinations into the navigation system without taking your eyes off the road.
Along with all the superior standard safety features you would expect from Ram, the 2017 Ram 1500 has other cutting-edge technologies you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Streamline your parking and safeguard against accidents with the available Park-Sense Front and Rear Park Assist System, which detects objects near the front and back of the truck, then calculates the object’s distance, warning you if you’re getting too close to the object. Even more impressive is the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system that comes standard on all 1500s. This system keeps your 1500 stable when towing or driving on treacherous terrains with multiple technologies, like traction Control, Rain Brake Support, Trailer Sway Control, and Hill Start Assist.
