2024 Ram 1500 Review

For those who tow their boat to the marina, their four-wheelers up to the mountains, and even those who just work on DIY projects around the house frequently, the Ram 1500 is a standout. With its power and capabilities, this Ram truck is ready to stand tall in the face of just about any task you throw at it.

In this 2024 Ram 1500 review, our Orange Coast Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) team will explore what makes this truck an excellent option for Costa Mesa, Hunting Beach, and Irvine, CA, area drivers.

Ram 1500 Engine

Of course, the Ram 1500 kicks off its impressive performance under the hood. Here, you will find three different engine options, each offering its own distinctive performance and benefits.

  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 – this class-exclusive engine comes with eTorque, ready to produce 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.6L PENTASTAR® V6 – pumps out 305 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque
  • Supercharged 6.2L HEMI® V8 – offers 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, can reach top speeds of 118 MPH

Which engine will you go with? If it's raw power you are seeking, the Supercharged 6.2L is the clear choice. You’ll tear up the local roadways with this roaring engine. If it's functional strength you are after, then the 5.7L HEMI® could be best, offering a best-in-class 12,750 pounds of maximum towing when properly equipped.

Know Before Your Tow

If you are planning on doing lots of towing, you will want to know more about the safety features that are engineered within the Ram 1500 to make your driving experience safe. More standardly, you have Trailer Sway Damping, which will work to keep your trailer secure as you drive.

Additionally, though, the truck offers an available Surround-View Camera System. When equipped with this, you will have a comprehensive view of your truck and trailer, able to make sure everything is properly fastened and secure.

Built for Family Fun…

Even if you are using your Ram 1500 as a work truck during the week, you will find it is ready for fun come the weekend. Take the truck bed, for example. Above the fenders in the bed, Ram makes a class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System available. Here, you can store items, like some camping gear, if you are headed out for a weekend to get in touch with Mother Nature.

If the kids get sick of Mother Nature, the Ram has you covered, too. With an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, the kids will be able to stream their favorite shows, check social media, and whatever else they may want to do, keeping them effortlessly entertained… and you relaxed.
