Stunned!

by Chris from Gretna, La on Mon Sep 18 2017

The crew cab has more than enough space for 5 6'5 grown men. The 8 speed transmission makes ride so much smoother than the 6 speed.

Big and Comfortable

by Ram I Am from Smithfield, Virginia on Sat Dec 30 2017

I love the truck for its space and technological advances. It's hard to believe these trucks ride like a luxury car. I'm very satisfied.

Smooth Ride

by Melissa from Otisville, NY on Wed Mar 29 2017

This is the smoothest truck I have driven. It's roomy & features are modern for a pick-up. There is so much room by adding the button gear shift.

New Purchase

by RAMLim4x4-TX from Waxahachie Texas on Tue Mar 13 2018

Very impressed with the styling and layout of the interior. Comfortable, and inviting. Air ride is unique and very smooth for a 4x4 1/2 ton. Purchased as a tow vehicle for a small camper. Wanted something with a little more power than a V6, and the diesel fit the bill. 25mpg highway unloaded, and 19mpg with 3800lbs towing. Impressive. Will need to evaluate long term, but first impressions of truck - wife loved it. She didn't want a truck ...at all. But this one convinced her to change her mind. Overall great ride.

Has exceeded my expectations, best truck

by Bob from Norfolk VA on Wed May 03 2017

The eco diesel RAM 1500 Limited rides great, tons of features, 27-29 MPG highway. Can't beat that for 4x4 and comfort.

Ram Laramie 1500

by AAlRefaie66 from on Thu Apr 20 2017

it's a great Truck; i have been using the truck for less than a year, and I'm loving it; I purchased the RAM in 05/2016. The only complain is about the system of the car (NAV) in total it needs a little updates ( Apple car play) as an example to be much fun while driving like any other car and more technology in the car which is much reliable technology that would be benefit for towing and saving fuel and much more.

Our Take on the 2016 RAM 1500

The verdict: Three years since significant drivetrain and chassis upgrades made it a standout, the Ram 1500 full-size half-ton pickup truck has lost ground to more recently redesigned body-type competitors, but it remains a satisfying truck in many ways.

Versus the competition: It’s not the right choice for the pickup shopper who wants the latest active-safety features or must haul or tow the absolute heaviest loads, but otherwise the 2016 Ram 1500 belies its age.

The 2016 model year sees the introduction of a new top trim level, the Laramie Limited, which shares an updated grille design introduced by the Rebel trim last year and incorporates Argento wood and premium leather inside... Read More
