2016 Ram 1500

What Changes Can You Expect?

The last few years have brought minimal changes to the pickup truck of choice for area drivers, but the 2017 Ram 1500 changes should bring some excitement to Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton job sites. We are still waiting on the full details of the redesign, but you can expect updates to:

  • Chassis: Whether the engines will be updated is up in the air, but the predicted new chassis should let you get more out of the current lineup of engines.
  • Design: Expect some physical tweaks to the interior and exterior design that will set this model year apart from 2016. Nothing that would turn drivers off, just some updates to refresh the look.
  • Features: We won’t know the full lineup of features until the model debuts, but expect some tech amenities to trickle down to lower trims.

What Will Remain the Same?

Perhaps most importantly, we think the 2017 Ram 1500 price will remain basically the same as the outgoing model, making it one of the best buys for the money in the pickup world.

Whether or not the engines will be updated, we expect the powertrain lineup to at least look similar. One standard V6, one standard V8, and one diesel engine that delivers higher torque and fuel economy is a recipe for success in the light duty truck world. We could also see a toning down of the number of trim levels – there are 11 currently – but Ram could add on even more trims to give drivers a wider range of options.

We won’t know for sure until the 2017 Ram 1500 debut.

The 2016 Ram 1500 Highlights

Trying to list the highlights of a vehicle like the 2016 Ram 1500 could keep us busy all day, but some of the advantages our drivers have enjoyed include:

  • Three Engine Options: Choose from a 305-hp V6, a 395-hp V8, or a 240-hp 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 with 420 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • Towing Capacity: Even the standard engine is capable of towing as much as 7,600 pounds, and the V8 engine can haul up to 10,650 pounds when properly equipped.
  • Features: The Ram 1500 is available with some of the latest tech features ranging from a rearview camera and Bluetooth to the Chrysler Uconnect multimedia hub.
