The 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 is expected to continue a long line of capable and dependable pickup trucks. Even though this model has been around in its current iteration for quite some time, it can still easily compete with the likes of the redesigned Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra as well as with a few years old Toyota Tundra. What sets the Ram apart from most of the competition is its comfortable ride combined with impressive fuel economy. This is mostly thanks to the diesel and V6 units matched to eight-speed transmissions.
