The most recent, fourth-generation Dodge Ram 1500 was redesigned for the 2009 model year. When compared to older Rams, this truck benefits from a coil-spring rear suspension, more powerful engines, and newer technological features.
This 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 comes available in five trim levels, beginning with the ST and moving through SLT, TRX, Sport and finally to the top-line Laramie. Three cab configurations and three bed lengths were also offered. The pickup could be had in either a two-wheel or four-wheel-drive setup. The Mega Cab from the previous generation was longer made available, but the current Crew Cab still provided almost 40 inches of rear legroom. Three engines were available: a 3.7-liter V6, a 4.7-liter V8 and a 5.7-liter Hemi V8. Notable for the Ram was its coil-spring rear suspension, which significantly enhanced the truck’s ride quality over broken pavement.
Ram will also gain new power folding trailer towing mirrors and chrome side moldings. The ST, however, loses its bright grille, reverting to black. Deep Water Blue appears to have been replaced by Patriot Blue; silver has the two-tone effect; and AutoStick is on the steering column shift lever when it’s not on the floor console.
For safety, the Ram included supplemental front curtain and side air bags, anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes, electronic stability control, height-adjust shoulder belts, sentry key theft deterrent system, and tire pressure monitoring warning lamp.
It was available in Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl, Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl; Deep Water Blue Pearl; Flame Red, Hunter Green Pearl and Mineral Gray Metallic.
Factory-installed exterior options included Mopar chrome tubular side steps, Mopar chrome steel bed rails, folding and heated trailer-tow power mirrors with supplemental signals and courtesy lamps, spray-in bedliner and under-rail bedliner.
