New 2017 RAM 1500 at Fitzgerald Auto Mall for Lexington Park, MD

The Ram 1500 for 2017 is an excellent choice for a light-duty pickup truck, and that's not only because it added air-filters into all cabins as standard! First off, the Laramie Longhorn model adds value by making standard additions like SmartBeam technology, Keyless Go, LED truck bed lighting, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The Sport model adds a security alarm for 2017, a remote start, and then the Bighorn incorporates automatic temperature control. The transmission is an eight-speed automatic this year too, which consolidates transmission choices into one well-calibrated shifting powerhouse.

Under the 1500's Hood

So, knowing that the 8-speed automatic is the only transmission offered, you know that RAM has made a great choice of engines to pair with it. Along that line of thinking, a 3.6-liter gasoline V6 that employs 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque is standard within the 2017 Ram 1500. A rear-wheel-drive set-up is also standard, or drivers can choose between double 4WD systems that are available. Both 4WD systems have a two-speed transfer case with low-range gearing. Standard on the Laramie Longhorn, Sport, and Limited models (optional on all except the HFE model) is a 5.7-liter V8 that acquires 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. On the HFE model (optional on all except the Express, Sport and Rebel models) is the standard EcoDiesel engine, a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 that earns 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. A gas 1500 with the V6 (properly equipped) can tow up to 7,610-lbs, and the diesel V6 can tow an amazing 9,210-lbs. The V8 can tow up to 10,640 pounds, which is handy when you need that kind of capability.

Design of RAM 1500

The RAM 1500 is a favorite around customers of Fitzgerald Auto Mall Lexington Park in Maryland because of its reputation for a combination of truck-function reliability and indoor features. The Ram 1500 has two size options (5-in or 8.4-in) for Uconnect touchscreen interfaces, which is used for entertainment and information. Making their appearances inside the cabin as well are keyless entry and ignition, power-adjustable pedals, Bluetooth, smartphone integration, voice controls, remote start, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. There are ten models: the Rebel, Laramie, HFE, Tradesman, Limited, Express, SLT, Big Horn/Lone Star, Sport and the Laramie Longhorn. The dirt-road ready Rebel is designed solely with the crew cab and a 5-foot-7-inch bed. The Rebel will get there with its anti-spin differential, keyless entry, tow hooks, front and rear shock absorbers by Bilstein, 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, black fender flares, LED fog-lights, and the available RamBox storage on-the-go system.

Safety first, everyone! Ram doesn't forget about that here and has a lot to offer on it. For example, if owners get the Uconnect Access system, that brings the full power of the emergency telematics system to the fore. Standard safety items on the 2017 Ram 1500 consist of hill-start assist, stability control, front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, and trailer-sway control. The 2017 Ram 1500 truck's head restraint/seat design was rated 'Good' in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests for whiplash protection in rear impacts. A controller for the fully integrated trailer-brake is available, and Ram 1500 buyers can couple that with an available rearview camera too. There are also available front and rear parking sensors. In government crash testing, for overall crash protection, the Ram 1500 got 4 out of a possible 5 stars, with 4 stars for total front-crash protection and 5 stars for total side-crash protection. If you are looking for a light-duty truck with heavy-duty mass appeal, this is the one to set your benchmark with when test-driving!
