Driver and passenger comfort are also top notch in the 2017 Ram 1500. Even base models come with quality interior appointments. Elite models offers advantages like leather upholstery, rear wood interior trim, driver memory settings, heated and ventilated front seats, and a host of other premium features.
Unlike many competitors, the 2017 Ram 1500 offers a confident and fuel-efficient diesel engine option. The turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel is rated for 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, and delivers fuel economy up to 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway in the HFE trim level.
While most models of the 2017 Ram 1500 are available with advanced four-wheel drive, only the Ram Rebel comes standard with premium off-road features like tow hooks, all-terrain tires, and rear Bilstein shock absorbers. Features like remote start, parking sensors, and heated front seats are also standard.
While drivers can't go wrong with either the base V6 gas engine or the available fuel-efficient diesel V6, the top-of-the-line 5.7-liter V8 delivers the best maximum towing number for this model. Equipped with this engine, the 2017 Ram 1500 in Forest Lake MN can trailer up to 10,640 pounds. This engine is standard on the Sport, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited trims, and available on all other trims, with the exception of the HFE model. This engine comes with the same eight-speed automatic transmission that is standard with all 2017 Ram 1500 engines. It is rated for 15 mpg in city driving and 22 on the highway with rear-wheel drive.
Other high-value features of the 2017 Ram 1500 include the premium Uconnect infotainment system, the built-in, lockage RamBox storage unit, and Wi-Fi hotspot capability.
