Ram 1500 stacked up against the Honda Ridgeline

When customers in the Salt Lake City area are looking for a new truck they know they can count on Layton Hills Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for a great selection in brand new Ram 1500 pickup trucks.

The Ram 1500 is one of the most popular all-purpose pickup trucks around and for good reasons. It's dependable for work or play, comes in a staggering amount of exterior colors and is available in a long list of available trims.

But, despite all that, we know it's not the only truck out there that might work for you. So, we've broken it down with its competition to see which truck is the best option.

The Ram 1500

Ram trucks come with a unique spring coil suspension system, making them the smoothest ride around for a pickup truck, whether the bed or loaded with gear or completely empty. This suspension system, along with Ram's luxurious, high-quality interior materials, combine to make the Ram 1500 a nice, easy ride that's a step up for pickup trucks of this class.

In 2017 the Ram 1500 has eliminated their optional six-speed automatic transmission and made the 8-speed automatic standard across all trims. The Ram's available trims for 2017 include:

  • The Tradesman
  • The RAM 1500 Express
  • The Big Horn
  • The Rebel
  • The Sport
  • The Night
  • The Laramie
  • The Laramie Longhorn
  • The Limited

Customers also get to choose the style when they purchase the Ram 1500:

  1. A four-door full-sized cab
  2. A two-door regular-sized cab
  3. A quad cab with backseat passenger space
