For 2014, Ram 1500 is available with a diesel engine, making it the first half-ton pickup to offer a modern, clean diesel engine option (though there was a light-duty diesel option offered by Dodge decades ago). Also new for 2014 are new colors and chrome bits. Otherwise, Ram 1500 carries over unchanged. The current-generation Ram was launched as a 2009 model.
On the outside, Ram continues with imposing stature. Like many Dodge cars, the Ram’s front end has a forward tilt, but it remains very aerodynamic. Detailing for the 2013 model year lowered the coefficient of drag (one aspect of total aerodynamic resistance) from 0.386 to 0.360, and both the diesel and HFE use grille shutters.
The Ram 1500 is a conventional full-size pickup truck, but it differs in rear suspension and powertrains from all its competitors: primarily Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra twins and, to a lesser extent, the Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra. Because the Honda Ridgeline does not have a separate frame, cab and bed, nor a choice of two or four-wheel drive, we do not consider it a conventional half-ton pickup, although those using a crew cab pickup primarily as a second car would be wise to consider the Ridgeline.
Inside, the Ram offers seating for three to six people, in-floor storage on Crew Cabs, and environments that span working-grade vinyl and rubber to creamy leather with ventilated and heated seats.
Ram Big Horn add more powertrain and mirror choices, chrome grille, 20×8-inch wheels, 115-VAC outlet, upgraded cloth upholstery with power driver 40/20/40 seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear floor storage bins (Crew Cab), power sliding rear window (on four-doors), Uconnect 5.0 with Bluetooth, and many more option packages.
