How does the Dodge Ram stack-up against the Competition?

First, there’s price.  This is always a huge factor when making a vehicle purchase choice and one the Ram truck brand take very seriously.  So, how does the Ram stack-up?  An SLT 4×2 2013 Ram 15000 has a starting MSRP of around $27,960.  Both comparable Chevy and Ford trucks are around $2500 more expensive.

Next, we need to take a look at fuel economy.  Trucks can be gas-hogs and with current gas prices that’s that last thing a buyer wants to worry with!  The same Ram described above features an EPA estimated highway fuel economy rating of 25 mpg.  It’s closest competitor only get 23.

Now, let’s look at payload performance.  This is a huge area of concern with most truck buyers because of the nature of work many of them perform on a daily basis.  The Ram comes in with a maximum payload capacity of 1,890 pounds.  It’s closest competitor can only hit 1,615.

Finally, (based upon 2012 Automotive News full-size pickup segmentation and the latest competitive information) there’s the fact that Ram is the only truck brand to offer the available, class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System and Four Corner Air Suspension system.  Both of these advanced truck features offer the convenience and flexibility you need to perform your daily tasks with ease.
