Do you like options? If so, the 2016 Ram 1500 makes it easy to get your truck your way with a good variety of body styles, bed lengths, and trim levels. The 1500 offers three boy styles: regular cab, extended “Quad” cab, and crew cab. Regular cabs come with either a 6.4-foot or 8-foot bed, extended cabs come with solely a 6.4-foot bed, and the crew cabs feature either a 5.7-foot or 6.4-foot bed. While some vehicles come with only three or four trim levels, the 2016 Ram 1500 offers 11. Here are a few worth your attention.
The Tradesman trim starts off the 1500's 2016 lineup and features lots of towing content, plus more. It comes with 17-inch steel wheels, seven-pin wiring harness, Class IV receiver hitch, active grille shutters, locking tailgate, and spray-in bed liner. Electronics include a 3.5-inch driver information screen and six-speaker sound system with USB port and auxiliary audio input.
If you want the most fuel economy out of the 1500, the HFE (high fuel economy) trim is your best bet. It can be powered by a gasoline or diesel V6 engine and features an automatic stop-start system.
For the sportiest trim, the obvious choice is the Sport. It revs a V8 engine and has 20-inch wheels, power-adjustable pedals, project headlights with LED accents, LE taillights, and LED interior lighting. If you opt for the Sport with a regular cab body style, you'll also gain performance gearing and limited-slip differential. Electronics get a hefty boost in the Sport, too, with everything from an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with SD card slot, charge-only USB port, and Uconnect Access smartphone integration and online/emergency services with Wi-Fi hotspot capability.
The 1500's Rebel trim is the most off-road oriented, which is perfect anyone looking for a rugged, adventurous truck. It rides on 17-inc wheels with all-terrain tires, and features black fender flares, front and rear Bilstein shock absorbers, and tow hooks. Not only that, but it also has LED fog lights, keyless entry, six-way power adjustable passenger seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, plus special cloth-and-vinyl upholstery.
For anyone interested in a truck, engine power and tow rates matter. There are several engines up for grabs for the 1500 depending on trim level. The base engine is a 3.6-liter gasoline V6 paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. There is also a 5.7-liter V8 hooked to a six-speed automatic transmission or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission. The third engine available is the 3.0-liter diesel V6 with eight-speed automatic transmission. Here's what each engine is capable of in towing and payload.
