For 2014 the Ram 1500 sees a number of refinements to help keep it competitive in the full-sized truck genre. The old 4.7L V8 is gone, as it made barely any more power than the Pentastar V6, which gets better mileage. Ram expects to release a 3.0L V6 diesel later in the year to supplement the engine choices available on the 1500. For 2014 the V6-powered Ram also sees a dramatic increase in towing capacity, up to 7,450 lbs. A parking assist feature is now available on some of the more luxurious trims.
Multiple model configurations to suit all needs; ample available V8 power with improved V6; increased fuel efficiency; user-friendly cabins; Ram-Box bed-side storage
The Ram 1500 already offered truck buyers a whole host of reasons to consider it, with power Hemi V8 availability, coilover rear suspension and innovative storage solutions, but with some very effective upgrades in key areas -- namely increased chassis strength, improved base engine power and efficiency and more intuitive interior ergonomics -- the Ram raises the bar for full-size trucks.
