Since its launch as a stand-alone division in 2009, the Ram Truck Brand has steadily emerged as an industry leader, setting the bar in innovation, capability, efficiency and durability along with great looks, a smooth ride, and refined interiors that make driving a truck no less comfortable than driving a luxury car.
The historic Scat Pack name was resurrected for Challenger and Charger R/T models just last year with multistage Mopar performance packages on the 5.7-liter Hemi engine.

Ram apparently polled more than just the men in designing this truck’s storage areas, too; they are plenty of thoughtfully designed compartments for keeping the clutter at bay. Ram 1500 customers who drive their trucks day in and day out will appreciate that U.S. News & World Report just named the 2015 Ram 1500 the Best Full-size Truck for the Money for the second year in a row. The long list of best-in-class titles includes America’s most fuel efficient pickup at 29 mpg with the exclusive EcoDiesel. A 305-hp 3.6-liter V-6 is standard, and there are options for a 395-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 or the 240-hp 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V-6 with plenty of grunt for towing, as well as great fuel economy. All are mated to a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission with either rear or four-wheel drive. With multiple trims and special editions, the 1500 lineup pricing ranges from $26K for the Tradesman to over $51K for the Laramie Limited.
