Trying to decipher the differences between the Ram 1500 trim levels can be confusing, especially to first-time buyers. The Ram 1500 Tradesman has features such as Vinyl upholstery, automatic headlights, cruise control, 17-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, and six-speaker system with an auxiliary input jack and option of USB port. The Ram 1500 Express is equipped with the Tradesman's features except for the bedliner and the standard hitch receiver. In addition, it has fog lights, body-color bumpers, and 20-inch wheels. The Ram 1500 HFE is a high fuel economy truck with a bed cover, 17-inch wheels, heated mirrors, rear-wheel drive, and a diesel V6 engine.

The new Ram trucks perform exceptionally in various driving conditions. The ride quality is great, especially when paired with the Ram 1500's class-exclusive air suspension. Although it doesn't have changes to its powertrains, it remains a comfortable pickup truck with a unique suspension. The ride quality is almost similar to that of a car rather than a pickup truck because of the multiple coil springs and links. The air suspension has the capability of lowering the Ram automatically at highway speeds to optimize gas mileage. Steering is a bit less sharp when traveling at slower speeds, but the Ram soars above the competition with its performance on the open road.
The new Ram lineup also has a torque-rich and fuel-efficient diesel engine. The remote exterior switch found in the cargo box is for activating LED bed lights. The Ram 1500 Sport and Tungsten trim adopt a body-color grille. The Ram 1500 Rebel trim is a great off-road-ready truck with a leather interior. The Ram 1500's segment-exclusive air suspension, fuel-efficient diesel engine and the UConnect infotainment system equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay really help this truck stand out. The Ram 1500 offers better fuel efficiency than you'll find elsewhere in this market segment at 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
In terms of safety, the Ram 1500 doesn't offer a lot of high-tech features at the lower trim levels - but it still has great overall safety ratings. It is child-seat friendly with the crew cab, which is a nice benefit for family-minded buyers. Starting at 31,795, the Ram 1500 can be yours.
