2016 Dodge RAM trucks are rugged, dependable and dominant in their category. They’re ideal for people who need a vehicle that can tackle any labor jobsite. Yet, RAM trucks are also stylish, refined and surprisingly affordable. There are three main truck platforms to choose from: the 1500, 2500 and 3500 with an almost endless variety of options between them.
2016 Dodge RAM 1500 HFE
If you’re in the market for a lightweight full-sized pickup truck, then check out the 1500 with HFE trim. The HFE gets 21 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. It’s got the best fuel economy of any full-sized pickup due to some innovative performance features. The HFE has a lower rear axle ratio and an 8 speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. These exclusive trim options help the HFE maintain lower RPMs and better manage the amount of torque reaching the wheels. For safety, it’s got front, side and rear multi-stage and supplemental airbags to keep everyone in the cab protected in case of an accident. This truck is the obvious value choice for people who want more bang for their buck.
2016 Dodge RAM 2500 Laramie
The RAM 2500 is built for heavy duty hauling. The Texas Auto Writers Association named it “The Heavy Duty Pickup Truck of Texas.” Even the base model Tradesman trim is a workhorse that can tow 11,230 lbs. The Laramie diesel trim is best in class for towing, maxing out at 17,400 and the Laramie also has a best in class gas-powered HEMI engine. It’s not just about power and capability with the Laramie either. It comes in crew or mega cab, has nine Alpine speakers standard, and dual zone automatic temperature controls. Talk about well-rounded. The exterior trim has options for 20-inch alloy wheels and mega-sized offroad tires.
2016 Dodge RAM 3500 Limited
The 2016 RAM 3500 is a heavy-duty truck that can do it all. There’s no job too big for this diesel-powered behemoth. Surprisingly, the 2016 Dodge RAM 3500 Limited package has an impressive interior trim with entertainment features that rival any luxury sedan. It’s got a huge 8.4-inch touchscreen display in the center console that controls navigation, HD Radio and social media accounts. You can plug in your mobile devices and access your data through USB, SD or auxiliary cable. Easy-access steering wheel controls bring it all within reach. After a hard day’s work you can just kick back and relax in heated, leather bucket seats.
Choosing the right trim levels for a 2016 Dodge RAM isn’t going to be easy. It’s a shame you can’t have them all. All of the model trims are loaded down with safety features, top of the line towing capacities and design elements you won’t find with any other brand. You’ve just got to get behind the wheel and test drive one for yourself.
