Dodge Ram for sale in Kansas City

 

The Dodge Ram pickup, currently badged as Ram Truck, is a full-size pickup truck manufactured by Fiat Chrysler Automobile US. The Ram nameplate was first used in 1981 when the then Dodge D-series and B-series trucks were rebadged and redesigned as Dodge Ram. Back then the use of fresh sheet metal made the Rams weigh less, resist more to rust and had a more aggressive demeanor which made them very popular. Some major updates were introduced in 2002 and later in 2009. Four generations later, in 2010, the Dodge nameplate was dropped and the pickups christened Ram trucks.

The Dodge Ram has become ubiquitous in Kansas and Missouri, on the streets of Independence and Blue Springs. This is due its long lasting durable build and comfortable cabin that can be used in the commercial sphere or simply as the ultimate family vehicle.

Design

The current Dodge Ram 1500 for sale in Kansas City is the fourth generation of pickup truck and was introduced in 2009. In contrast to previous generations, this truck features coil-spring rear suspension, powerful engine options, and newer technology, thus offering a better ride quality. It was sold as Dodge Ram 1500 with 2500/3500/4500/5500 models being added subsequently. The current generation Dodge Ram for sale in Kansas City at State Line Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is handsomely sculpted and stands tall among other pickups, and the used Dodge Rams for sale are also an excellent option for their low price.

Performance

The Dodge Ram 1500 comes in five trim levels, the base ST, then moving to SLT, TRX, Sport and the top end Laramie. Further, it also offered three cab configurations; however, the Mega Cab option from the previous generation was deleted. It was replaced by a true four-door crew cab (offering 40 inches of additional rear legroom) with a regular cab and quad cab being the other two. The pickup can be bought either in a two-wheel or four-wheel-drive setup. Engines options include a 3.7L V6 (215 hp), 4.7L V8 (310 hp) and 5.7L Hemi V8 (390 hp).

The third-generation Dodge Ram 1500 was made between 2002 and 2008 and came in only three trim levels, the basic ST, the SLT and the top line Laramie (previously the SLT Plus in 2003). The initial can options included Club and Quad with even longer Mega Cab starting in 2006. The initial engine options included the 3.7L V6 (215 hp) for the 2WD regular cab and a 4.7L V8 (235 hp). Later, an older 5.9L V8 with 245 hp was introduced, which was followed by the 5.7L V8 Hemi (345 hp) in 2004, and 4.7 V8 (310 hp) in 2007.

As for the transmissions, updates took place gradually as 5-speed manuals were replaced by 6-speeds, and 4-speed automatics gave way for five-speeds.

Interior

Despite being Ram 'trucks', the interiors of Dodge Rams are very different from any other truck cabins. They are extremely spacious and comfortable. The cabin comes with a three-across front bench seat and column shifter with all seats featuring minute attention to detail. It also has a rear-seat video option and a 10-speaker surround-sound audio system, along with navigation and a rear back-up camera. Moreover, the 2017 Ram 1500 features several plush tech options such as the Uconnect infotainment with an 8.4-inch touch screen and 7-inch driver information digital cluster color display. There are also several nifty storage spaces that provide further convenience for storage.

Towing & Payload

The 2009 model came with a towing capacity of 9,100 lbs. for the 2WD with Hemi engine. For the 2010 model, the payload was increased by 50 lbs. to 1,900 lbs. for the regular cab 2WD model with the 3.7L V6 engine.

For the regular cab Ram 1500 with 17-inch wheels, the towing capacity is 6,100 lbs. and 5,900 lbs. when paired with 19-inch wheels.

The new 2017 model also comes with a cargo management system with cargo box lighting, cargo bed extender and divider, and adjustable cargo bed rails.

Safety
