    A Standout Truck

    The 2023 Ram 1500 is a standout pickup thanks to its performance capabilities. Shoppers are able to customize the truck to their needs with its range of light-duty powertrains. There are three main engines for the baseline trims. This includes the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with eTorque, delivering 305 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. For those who prefer the audible growl of a V8, the 5.7-liter HEMI gives you 395 hp to put down and 410 lb-ft of torque to utilize. The HEMI V8 also comes with eTorque, providing additional access to more torque at lower RPMs, making it the perfect choice for those who want a truck for off-road or towing purposes.

    The 3.0-liter Ecodiesel V6, however, is the perfect solution for those who want a performance-ready pickup that has high-end torque output with plenty of power to boot. The EcoDiesel V6 outputs 260 hp and a massive 480 lb-ft of torque. All three engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and you can have the truck configured with a rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

    High-Performance Features

    To make the most of the truck's performance capabilities, there are features like an active air dam that extends 2.5 inches at the front of the truck to improve aerodynamics and reduce drag. This also helps with overall fuel economy and handling. Other state-of-the-art technologies include the available Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension, which provides a dynamic suspension system that raises and lowers based on the needs of the driver. On the highway? The suspension will automatically lower for better aerodynamic performance and reduced drag. Need to travel off-road? The suspension can rise to help give the undercarriage clearance across rough or uneven terrain. The Active-Level suspension can also make it easier to access the bed or climb into the cab.

    With built-in lifted suspension available on the Rebel, as well as features such as Selec-Speed Control, enabling you to easily change the drive settings for different kinds of terrain, you have more control than ever before over how the Ram 1500 handles both on the road and off. That's not to mention you have available 33-inch all-terrain tires, aluminum wheels, and exterior performance parts, ensuring the Ram 1500 is designed to appeal to all sorts of performance enthusiasts.

    Configure Your Truck

    Freedom of choice is a big factor when it comes to shopping for the right half-ton pickup. Fortunately, with the 2023 Ram 1500, there's no shortage of options and configurations that suit all manner of truck drivers out there, whether you need a truck for work, play, or both. There are, in fact, two different cab options available, including the Crew Cab and Quad Cab. What's more, is that the Ram 1500 is capable of seating up to six passengers across two rows.

    The 2023 Ram 1500 is also available in two different bed configurations. There is the 5-foot, 7-inch short bed, and the 6-foot, 4-inch standard bed. The short bed offers up to 53.9 cu.ft. of cargo volume, while the standard bed provides up to 61.5 cu.ft. of cargo volume. You can also take advantage of the reinforced frame made of high-strength, lightweight steel that enables the truck to carry up to 2,300 lbs of payload in the bed.

    Towing and Hauling

    The towing is another area where the Ram 1500 is known to excel, and the 2023 model year is no exception. It continues to boast impressive numbers within the light-duty segment, topping out with a max tow rating of 12,750 lbs. This makes it a great truck if you need it for recreational towing, such as trailering vehicles, boats, and traveling gear, or if you need it for work purposes, like hauling large loads from one site to another.

    The 2023 Ram 1500 manages to further separate itself from the competition with the Rambox Cargo Management System and the Multifunction Tailgate. This upgraded tailgate can swing open horizontally in a 60/40 split, or you can lay it down like a traditional tailgate with dampening for extra safety. The Rambox feature can be utilized for securely storing tools or other items in lockable, waterproof cargo bays located over the wheel wells. All of these practical features help make the Ram 1500 a do-it-all choice for light-duty truck drivers.

However, the driver information cluster is just a small piece of what passengers can expect when it comes to the infotainment aspects of the Ram 1500.

    Centerpiece Infotainment

    The big sell for the interior technology of the truck is the available 12-inch HD touchscreen. This is a centerpiece of tech within the cabin, powered by the Uconnect 5C system that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. There's also the inclusion of SiriusXM Radio with 360L technology, so you can access your favorite media with a simple touch. The heads-up display gives you lots of information without having to take your eyes off the road or your hands off the wheel, keeping all the convenient features from distracting from the driving experience. All of these features make the 2023 Ram 1500 a well-rounded and practical pickup.
