The Car Guide rating 78%(view ratings)
This hefty pick-up is one of the most popular in its class thanks to its robust Hemi V8 and the constant improvements made to its exterior and interior. For the 2013 model year, most of the more significant changes have occurred in the V6 version, which now features a Pentastar engine. Perfectly adapted to the Ram 1500, this 3.6L V6 is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
