The opening of the review begins with the advancements that are going into the next generation of trucks, Ram’s included. Fuel economy is a subject on everyone’s lips of late with regards to the economy and rising gas prices. Thanks to new forms of lightweight materials and tech being introduced, pickups are about to see better bang for the buck on gas. The 2013 Ram 1500 is part of that new trend, having excellent fuel economy with the 3.6 Liter V6 engine.
The writer put the truck through the motions by taking it on a trip from Tennessee to Detroit. “The optional air suspension absorbed bumps and kept it securely planted on the highway and curving mountain roads. The steering is responsive, with good on-center feel.”
The interior is said to be very roomy with good seats and plenty of storage. For the dash-board, a dash mounted rotary dial is in the place of the shifter and this makes it so the Ram has more storage space in the center console. This dial is easy to use and very compact, similar in design to what Jaguar uses in their luxury cars.
It’s very clear that in the time he spent with the Ram, he turned into a believer into what the new Ram means. It’s “the first V-6 powered full size pickup that doesn’t sneer “cheapskate” every time you start the engine.”
