2016 Ram 1500 Trim Comparison Review
Posted on March 11, 2020
When shopping for a new pick-up truck, most of our customers at Caledon Chrysler are looking for a tough and reliable truck that is just as good at the worksite as it is on the open road. While all the trucks we offer fit this description, we also have a pickup that can tow up to 4,826 kilograms (10,640 pounds) and is Canada's most fuel-efficient full-sized pickup truck ever. That amazing truck is the 2016 RAM 1500. Available in 11 trim levels, two or four-wheel drive, and mind-blowing 35 exterior colours, we are quite confident that the 2016 RAM 1500 has something for all of our customers in the Bolton, Ontario area.
Because it's a RAM truck, you know you are going to get a great deal of performance with the 2016 RAM 1500. Drivers have a choice of three engines including the standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 DOHC 24-valve engine that produces 305 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 269 lb.-ft. of torque at 4175 rpm. The class-exclusive 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6 DOHC 24-valve engine puts out 240 horsepower at 3600 rpm and 420 lb.-ft. of torque and gives you best-in-class fuel economy with up to 8.0 L/100 km (35 mpg) highway.* Finally, for the ultimate in power, there is the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that will give you an impressive 395 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 410 lb.-ft. of torque at 3950 rpm. As far as control and ride, you'll appreciate the available ZF Torqueflite 8HP70, eight-speed automatic transmission, electronic shift-on-the-fly transfer cases, segment-exclusive five-link coil spring rear suspension, and standard Electronic Stability Control.
Just because your pickup truck is powerful and durable doesn't mean it can't be comfortable and hi-tech. The interior of the 2016 Ram 1500 makes sure that you'll enjoy the ride. The front centre floor console incorporates a smartphone/tablet holder and is available with a full-leather lid and wood tambour sliding door on some trim levels. There is also automatic dual-zone temperature control, standard heavy-duty vinyl 40/20/40 front bench seat, 60/40 split-folding rear seats, and the optional full-leather front bucket seats with 10-way power driver's seat. If staying entertained and connected is as important to you as it is to us at Caledon Chrysler, then you'll be thrilled by the innovative technology available in the 2016 RAM 1500. There is a standard seven-inch customizable full-colour in-cluster display, an ergonomically located media hub, and the available Uconnect Multimedia Centres that include Siri Eyes Free, Drag and Drop, Do Not Disturb, as well as Bluetooth streaming audio.
We really couldn't fit all the amazing benefits and features of the 2016 RAM 1500 in one blog, it's just that special of a full-sized pickup truck. If you want to learn more or take one for a test-drive, we suggest contacting Caledon Chrysler today.
