Come to work with the credentials of the available 5.7l hemi v8, and you're ready to take on whatever is in front of you, and-given the uncompromising towing and payload numbers-that loaded trailer or full-sized boat behind you. With advantages like variable valve timing (vvt), the ingenious multi-displacement system (seamlessly transforming this robust v8 into a fuel-sipping four-cylinder when cruising) and the efficient power of its hemispherical heads, the hemi v8 stands out-and frequently stands above.
The best compliment you can give this stellar performer is to acknowledge its world-known co-star. Mated to the impressive torqueflite® 8-speed automatic transmission (a powertrain component available with every engine in the ram 1500 arsenal), the proven 3.6l pentastar v6 delivers a quiet and cool performance, thanks to innovative thermal management systems that keep both the engine and transmission operating at the ideal internal temperatures.
Few engines carry the clout of the available 3.0l ecodiesel v6; fewer still can approach the mpg, driving range and towing prowess of this torque-friendly powerplant. Mated only to the torqueflite® 8-speed automatic, the 3.0l ecodiesel v6 delivers biodiesel (b20) capability; a zero-hassle def system; clean dual-filtration technology; minimal co2 levels; and oil change intervals up to 10,000 miles. The crowning touch? Its best-in-class 29 mpg highway** fuel economy.
Towing, handling and maneuverability: welcome to electronic stability control.
Drive a 2016 ram 1500, where road manners, comfort and capability all ride hand in hand with safety and security. The indispensable electronic stability control system (standard on every model) is key.
This comprehensive and state-of-the-art system addresses multiple dynamics using technology that enhances control-especially while towing. The ram 1500 system features these fundamental assets:
All-speed traction control helps regulate wheel spin. If slippage occurs during acceleration, automatic throttle control will reduce torque; in extremes (like accelerating from pavement to ice), it will apply the brakes and reduce the engine power to maintain control.
Trailer sway damping detects yaw and applies selective brake pressure on the tow vehicle's opposite side to counteract and reduce the sway.
The ram 1500 braking system features optimized pedal travel to provide quick power assist. Rear wheel-speed sensors are positionedFor protection against road elements. In its role as critical control system, features multiple assets for braking; it even includes vehicle control when stationary. These encompass:
Antilock brake system (abs). Monitoring each wheel's speed, the ram 1500 abs design also incorporates back-up braking should one of the two braking circuits be compromised.
Electronic brake-force distribution regulates brake pressure from front to rear to minimize stopping distances.
Ready alert braking senses the moment when the driver's foot is lifted from the accelerator; it applies an imperceptible brake force to ensure that pads and discs are lined up should an emergency stop be required.
Rain brake support automatically and seamlessly activates when the driver turns on the windshield wipers; all brake calipers gently pulse against their respective rotors to remove water from the pads.
Should a failure occur in the vacuum brake booster or any related line (e.G., a rupture from tough off-roading), the brake controller will run the abs pump; our system is so sophisticated, it conveys the problem to the driver. Most important, the brakes perform as normal until the failure is serviced.
When the vehicle is angled on hills or inclines, this system keeps your ram 1500 stationary for two seconds after the brakes have been released or until the accelerator is depressed.
The available parksense front and rear park assist serves as a convenient aid, especially when parallel parking.
Multiple integrated sensors use ultrasonic waves to detect objects as far as 47 inches away from the bumpers, picking up the echo of a signal when it bounces off an object. Using classic echo triangulation, the system determines relative distance. Read-outs located in the gauge cluster display team up with audible chimes to notify the driver of proximity to front and/or rear objects.
Class-exclusive:a robust, dynamic rear suspension that simultaneously delivers occupant comfort with seriously impressive handling and road manners.
You get an on-screen display with active grid lines that let you pinpoint the trailer hitch-with a clear view of the rear each time you shift into reverse.
These large 7 x 11-inch mirrors swing out on extended arms and capture the entire scene on each side of the truck. Towing an extra-wide trailer? Our trailer tow mirrors are designed to give you the maximum view behind you.
Custom-designed to give you supreme control and confidence while trailering, the available trailer tow mirrors and brake group puts it all together. The group includes an electronic trailer brake controller, a class iv hitch receiver and the trailer tow mirrors, described above. The trailer and traction group (available for ram 1500 slt models only) offers all the amenities of the trailer tow mirrors and brake group, and adds a 3.92 axle ratio (with the hemi® v8 or ecodiesel v6 engines), or a 3.55 axle ratio (if equipped with the pentastar® v6 engine). Properly secure all cargo.
What's unbelievable is that no one else has engineering this refined. This available and class-exclusive suspension system delivers five distinctive operational modes, with four-corner control resulting in an overall superior ride, irrespective of load. The engineering automatically equalizes your ram 1500 while under heavy payloads, helping maintain a horizontal load plane, a level and constant driving profile and proper headlamp-to-road angle for consistently even forward illumination.
Our integrated switch bank makes operating the available active-level four-corner air suspension system a snap; push a button, and you've moved from one mode to another, ensuring the ideal ride height for your terrain and conditions.
Functions include keyless (bladeless) operation to system controls for the remote start, the allsecure® locking system and the panic button; it even allows remote access of the entry/exit mode of the available active-level four-corner air suspension system.
Provides impressive ground clearance for the path and trail and generous angles for approach, departure and breakover. Difference from normal: +2.0 in.
Enjoy outstanding ride balance, with an extra degree of clearance when off-road scenarios are less severe than those that warrant off-road 2 mode. Difference from normal: +1.2 in, front; +0.9 in, rear.
Normal ride height. The most comfortable balance of ride and handling for everyday driving.
At highway speeds, the aero mode automatically lowers the vehicle, reducing aerodynamic drag and "body roll," and measurably improving fuel efficiency. Difference from normal: -0.6 in.
Automatically lowers the vehicle for easier entry/exit, loading/unloading, trailer hooking/unhooking. This mode is manually controlled by the internal button bank or remotely with the key fob. Difference from normal: -2.1 in, front; -1.7 in, rear.

Reducing weight contributes to fuel efficiency. Where heavy steel isn't needed, ram 1500 engineers opted for down-gauged but stronger steel, so you can count on a full-size tough truck with fuel-sipping performance.
The incorporation of electric power steering created a raft of advantages. Parasitic losses are lower-helping improve fuel efficiency. Operation is quieter. Speed-proportional assist translates into outstanding highway road feel-and minimal efforts in parking lots. Precise and less complex, it also eliminated hydraulic fluid-and the time used to check and replace it.
Working with the high-strength steel frame are eight ultra-tough crossmembers; we also employ a hydroformed tubular front frame unit, also comprised of high-strength steel. It's an ultra-stiff component that further reduces weight-adding to fuel efficiency while providing exceptional ride characteristics.
The 2016 ram 1500 utilizes superb technology: our short-/long-arm suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar minimizes camber and toe change. You'll measure it in the savings that accompany reduced tire wear.
Ram 1500 engineering leaves no stone unturned-except the ones you're riding on. These shocks are tuned for optimum ride balance, with more resistance during upward wheel motion than downward. Count on a smooth ride with reduced harshness, notably on less-than-perfect road surfaces.
This available asset has proven itself beyond doubt. The shutters instantly adapt to speed, load and engine needs to provide ideal engine cooling, while significantly reducing aerodynamic drag to help improve the fuel efficiency for ram 1500 models.
Contributing to the fuel-efficient performance and quiet ride, are exceptional aerodynamics. With touches like wind-tunnel tested and thoroughly refined windshield shapes and aero-formed side mirrors, the ram 1500 exterior is sculpted to glide through air.
These available robust, tubular, wheel-to-wheel side steps help improve aerodynamic efficiency, while easing access to the truck interior and bed.
