One thing that Miami Ram truck drivers know, is that Ram knows how to make a REAL pickup truck. We aren’t talking about a wannabe, looks cool, but offers mediocre performance, pickup truck. No, Ram makes the real deal. A power-driven, performance-enhanced pickup truck, that also happens to be pretty easy on the eyes. In our estimation, that’s what the real pickup enthusiasts want out of their truck anyway.
The Ram 1500 has been around for quite a long time, and has sat quietly on the sidelines for long enough. Since 1981, Ram has been manufacturing the 1500 pickup, and with age, the truck has only gotten more refined, reliable, and respected.
New Features on the 2016 Ram 1500
The most recently updated version of the Ram 1500 was released for the 2016 model year. With body and frame modifications, improved safety scores, and a revised interior – the 2016 Ram 1500 is a true testament to the effort Dodge Ram has put into its most popular pickup.
The automotive manufacturer went to great lengths to refresh the Ram 1500 just enough to keep buyers interested, and to keep the competition on its toes. The restructured body and frame gave the pickup better scores in the small overlap crash test with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The increased safety scores definitely help the 2016 Ram 1500 appeal to more buyers, and it doesn’t hurt the truck’s viability with other competitors.
The higher end Laramie LImited and Rebel trim levels received a new grille design, while all of the 2016 Ram 1500 models received a new center console. Each of these are striking examples of how far Ram has come in its engineering and design since 1981.
