Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM is your one-stop shop for all things truck! When it comes to finding the best RAM truck for you, we have one of the biggest selections of RAM trucks in the entire state of Georgia ready and waiting. While that means that you can find the configuration that’s perfect for you, it also means that there are a lot of configurations to sift through. So we thought we would help out and break down some of what all the options mean.
There are nearly three dozen potential configurations to the 2016 RAM 1500. While that’s a lot to digest, knowing how a RAM truck can be built and specced will help. Let’s start with cab configurations. The 2016 RAM 1500 is available in two cab options starting with the Regular Cab. This cab generally seats three passengers and is available with either a six-foot-four-inch or eight-foot cargo bed. The larger cab, known as the Quad Cab, seats up to six with a five-foot-seven-inch or six-foot-four-inch bed.
Once you know which cab you want, you have your choice of 11 trim levels: the 2016 RAM 1500 Tradesman, Express, HFE, SLT, Big Horn/Lone Star, Outdoorsman, Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. The Tradesman is outfitted with 17-inch steel wheels and includes plenty of great features including a Class IV receiver hitch, active grille shutters, a USB port, and more. The Express upgrades to 20-inch aluminum wheels. The HFE (High Fuel Economy) gets 17-inch aluminum wheels and adds automatic engine start/stop. The SLT gets a larger five-inch touchscreen, heated mirrors, remote keyless entry, Bluetooth, a chrome exterior, and more.
The Big Horn comes with a 115-volt power outlet and upgraded upholstery. The Sport gets a V8 engine, 20-inch wheels, Uconnect Access, LED accents and lights, and more. The Laramie reverts to a V6 engine but gets leather upholstery, wood interior trim, dual-zone climate control, a 10-speaker surround audio system, and more. The Laramie Longhorn features a V8 engine, LED bed lighting, navigation system, remote ignition, and more. The Limited adds more cosmetic enhancements such as keyless entry and ignition, heated rear seats, and more.
The base engine on a RAM 1500 is a 3.6-liter V6 which puts out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. A 5.7-liter V8 engine puts out 395 horsepower with 410 lb-ft of torque. Rear-wheel drive is standard with four-wheel drive being optional. To see all the differences between these beautiful full-size pickups, head on down to our Baxley, GA RAM dealership today.
