The 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 lineup includes eleven trim selections to choose from.  Each trim selection has plenty of options to customize your truck. We’re driving the popular Big Horn quad cab model with the optional five point seven liter V8 Hemi engine.

The redesigned and gorgeous center console includes a standard – easy to use touchscreen infotainment system with enhanced connectivity as well as a convenient mount for your phone or tablet. The interior controls are well placed with buttons and dials large enough to operate even while wearing gloves.

With 395 horsepower and 410 foot pounds of torque, our 2016 Dodge RAM is ready for maximum loading and hauling capability.

“I have a personal attachment to Dodge trucks. My husband owned a 2005 Dodge Ram. When we moved him out here to Arizona that Ram 1500, with its V8 Hemi, hauled a fully loaded 17 ft trailer all the way from the east coast to Phoenix. That trip was especially memorable as we were not only hauling our way to our new life together, but we dodged  a Tornado in Missouri, an earthquake in Oklahoma, hailstorms in Texas and finally a blizzard in Flagstaff as we made our way to Phoenix.”

The Ram’s smooth ride remains impressive with its class-exclusive coil spring rear suspension and standard electronic stability control creating a comfortable ride similar to a luxury SUV. The optional “Active Level” Four-corner air suspension – also a class exclusive feature available on the 2016 Dodge RAM – provides automatic load leveling to prevent drooping while hauling a heavy load and even lowers the truck automatically at highway speeds to improve fuel efficiency.

The 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 is sure to appeal to any truck enthusiast who wants classic style, comfort, capability and value.
