For the Tough Jobs, Rely on the All-Terrain Prowess of the Ram 1500 Pickup

The daily grind around Batavia, points west to Lancaster and beyond can present with the need to surmount some gnarly geography and weather along the job roster's route. One might immediately think "heavy-duty pickup" for the task, but when one considers the capabilities on display in our feature-packed new truck selection in Attica, one needn't look past the light-duty line. Your towing champion's here at Upstate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Inc., in the form of the powerhouse Ram 1500.

There are more than a few reasons why Ram earns the moniker of one of "America's longest-lasting pickups." From base Tradesman and Express, stepping up to Big Horn, hitting the mid-range with the athletic Rebel and Sport, attention-commanding Night, and well-appointed Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited trims, Ram 1500's options evince it.

Built on a high-strength steel frame, a hydroformed tubular front unit giving way to eight ultra-tough cross members, the pickup's durability's not in question. Plus, regular cab, crew cab, and quad cab configurations span the gamut from utility for hauling to passenger comfort. It's every bit of performance, each run of convenience tech, and myriad safety features between that truly define Ram 1500. 


Engines, Technology, and Performance

Head right out the gate with one of three powerplants, and see what we mean. You can opt for the enviable pulling panache of a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine, the efficiency of the truck's 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 choice, of raw power in the form of a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine. That means a range of a capable 240 horsepower to an excellent 395, and torque kicking off at 269 pound-feet, heading all the way up to 420. Plus, each Ram pickup comes available in 4x2 and 4x4 drivetrains.

So, what does that mean for Ram 1500's integrated trailer hitch, four- and seven-pin trailer hitch wiring harness and connectors, each with bumper integration? Both a 1,250-pound to 1,880-pound max payload capacity and a 7,260 to 10,620 pounds of max towing support, depending upon trim and build. Ram 1500 even features Trailer Sway Control to help set loads aright during travel. Taking on a crew as well as a host of equipment has never been easier. An available in-floor rear cargo compartment surely helps, flanked by the available AllSecure® Central Locking System that helps protect an optional RamBox® Cargo Management System.

What's more, you can count on Ram 1500 to remain a smooth operator -- and that extends beyond near seamless gear shifts afforded by a standard TorqueFlite 8 eight-speed auto transmission. The truck showcases a standard five-link coil spring rear suspension, delivering friction reduction without sacrificing towing chops and providing improved turning response. There's even an Active-Level™ four-corner air suspension with auto load leveling and five ride height settings available, making it a snap to take a trailerful across terrain both uneven and unpredictable. Moreover, with Hill Start Assist, getting over the literal hump's a matter of course.

Mobile Technology

But no Ram drive-time's complete without the mobile tech to take it there and back again with the satisfaction of a hard day's work. Ram 1500's 7-inch color Driver Information Digital Cluster simplifies viewing performance-level metrics with a customizable display, so you can keep your eyes on your drive while they remain on the road. Likewise, you'll find keeping up your "office on-the-go" simple with the pickup's optional 8.4-inch touchscreen-equipped Uconnect® 8.4 infotainment system. Convenient voice Command, hands-free calling capability, SiriusXM support, and available GPS navigation with 3D terrain maps, SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link all work in concert to keep you on track and productive.

The Ram 1500 experience tops off with a set of security elements providing plenty of peace of mind for the ride. Complete with dynamic crumple zones, side-impact door beams, and the protection of an advanced airbag system, the pickup's a veritable shelter from road dangers, driveway to highway and home again. A ParkView® rear backup camera even makes reverse and sweet-spot maneuvers a breeze when it's time to punch out, with help from an available ParkSense® Front Park Assist System.

Eager to explore Ram 1500 for yourself? Hit the road for Attica and stop by to see us here at Upstate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Inc., and we'll set you up behind the wheel. Our 125 Prospect Street Ram showroom puts on proud display an expanse of trim levels sure to take your drive to the next level.
