The Ram 1500 Is One Proud Performer
Need a pickup that can shoulder and shuttle heavy materials to the job site daily or a secure family ride that’s primed to tow your boat on vacation when the time comes?
Thanks to three capable engines in its lineup, there’s a 2017 Ram 1500 for every truck seeker. The standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 is an excellent choice for everyday driving and the occasional bed fill-up.
Driving throughout Cassville, Mt. Union, and Huntingdon, PA, in a truck doesn’t mean you have to trade capability for a high gas bill. At an EPA-estimated 21/29 city/highway MPG while leveraging 420 lb-ft of torque, the Ram’s 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 delivers impressive power and top-notch efficiency.
Those seeking a tow vehicle through and through will be drawn to the Ram 1500’s 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine option that’s got the gusto to take on your toughest hauls. Coming in at a mighty 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, this Ram powerhouse is ready to carry up to 1,880 pounds and tow up to 10,520 pounds when properly equipped.
Confidence in Every Tow
From getting a trailer hitched up right to keeping it on course during your drive, towing can be a tricky undertaking. Luckily, the 2017 Ram 1500’s standard features and equipment make towing more second nature and secure.
Each Ram 1500 comes with a trailer hitch already integrated into its frame and a hitch wiring harness and connectors built into the bumper, so you’ve already got a head start with every tow. When it’s time to get hitched, the ParkView™ Rear Back-Up Camera makes positioning your pickup to make the connection a cinch.
While on the road, Trailer Sway Control is keeping an eye out back. When side-to-side trailer motion is sensed, engine power adjusts, and brakes are applied to the wheels that need it most.
Choose Your 2017 Ram 1500
The Ram 1500 has transformed the pickup from a no-frills job-site vehicle to a refined daily driver that can handle both work and play with ease. There are nine trim levels available for 2017, starting with the entry-level Tradesman and ranging up to the luxury-level Limited that gets leather seats and an Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension.
Versatility is one of the 2017 Ram 1500’s core strong suits, and three different cab sizes that seat three to six passengers and short, regular, and extended bed lengths help you choose the solution you need.
The class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System is your ultimate mobile toolbox featuring weathertight, lockable storage built right into the side rails of the bed, perfect for job-site essentials or an impromptu cooler.
