With Americans buying record numbers of big, full-size pickup trucks, automakers continue to improve the products. Today, trucks like the 2017 RAM 1500 are undoubtedly the most powerful, most technically advanced and most capable pickup trucks ever.
It’s already been seven years since the Dodge’s line of pickups split off and became Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s (FCA) Ram trucks brand. Dodge first used the Ram hood ornament on its vehicles back in 1933, and the Ram name first appeared on a Dodge truck in 1981.
Now in its fourth-generation, the 2017 Ram 1500 brings the power, comfort, and capability full-size truck buyers expect. Built in Warren, Michigan, the Ram 1500 competes head to head with its domestic cross-town rivals, the Ford F-150, GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado 1500, as well as the Nissan Titan and the Toyota Tundra.
