The 2013 Ram 1500 might not look different, but sharp-eyed fans will notice its slightly larger grille and restyled headlights and LED taillights. And Ram made more significant changes under the skin. There's a stronger but lighter frame, and Ram addressed the chief criticism of the previous model, its weak entry-level V6. For 2013 there's an all-new V6, a 3.6-liter boasting 90 more horsepower for a 305-hp output. It's paired with a new eight-speed automatic transmission and is significantly better in both performance and economy than the previous engine. Two V8s sit above it, a 4.7-liter with 310 hp and a 5.7-liter with 395 hp, and both use an automatic. All Ram 1500s are offered in rear- or all-wheel drive, with a choice of cab and bed lengths to suit your specific passenger and payload requirements.
For a truck that'll be bought with work in mind, the Ram remains uncommonly good at feeling a cut above its competition. The ride is civilized thanks to its coil-spring rear suspension, while the fit and finish inside feels positively luxurious compared to rivals. The base Tradesman trim level is decently appointed for a work-oriented truck; the SLT adds some convenience features; and the Sport brings body-colored bumpers, power seats, Bluetooth® connectivity, and sportier looks. Other available trims include the Laramie Longhorn and Laramie Limited, while a number of options, including differing axle ratios, or the HFE (high fuel economy) package, let you choose your Ram exactly how you like it.
