I bought a 2017 RAM 1500 'R/T' after extensive research on what I needed and wanted. The R/T model is so unusual that it didn't even get mention in the official sales brochure. FCA just didn't promote it: they should have.
The 'R/T' is the top-of-the-line offering in the 'Sport' truck sector. It's a 2 door, 2WD model with a 6 1/2' bed--Exclusively! It seats 2 in 'captain's chair' seats. It comes option-loaded with styling to match. Think of it as an updated SRT-10 or as a "Corvette with a tailgate." This rig FLIES!! It has handling to match with those huge 22" x 9" forged aluminum wheels. It's also got all the practicality of a pickup.
Sadly, they stopped offering this great model: the last series--from 2009 forward, ended with the 2017 model. Oh yeah, people should know--it'll fit easily inside a standard garage, out of the weather and harm. Terrific dealer too: Jack Powell Dodge, Escondido, CA
