Reviewers comment that the Dodge Ram 1500 is one of the top trucks of 2010.  According to Edmunds; “Given all of the praise we heap on the 2010 Ram 1500, it’s no wonder why this pickup beat the competition in a recent comparison test.

But with all of the latest cutting edge technological features and Ram’s great looks, and upscale interior what really attracts new buyers most is its high performance ratings.

The Ram Heavy Duty

used Dodge Ram in MOAll Star Dodge Dealer, home of a wide selection of new and used Dodge RAM trucks near Jerseyville knows that If you’re looking for a heavy duty full sized truck,  one that can out tow anything  in its class, can handle tough jobs and still deliver a smooth driving performance look no further, the 2010 Ram HD is here.

The all new workhorse 2010 Dodge Ram HD trucks, which include both 2500(3/4 ton) and 3500(1ton) models, are have been designed to work.

The Kansas City Star says: “Heavy-duty pickups are the sumo wrestlers of the truck world. They’re big, tough and steadfast, ready for anything you can ask of them, including pulling a trailer that is more than twice as heavy as the truck itself. But some big trucks, such as the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Laramie Mega Cab 4X4 with the Cummins 6.7-liter turbo diesel engine, are equipped more like an upscale car than a work truck.”

There are three cabs (Regular, Crew and Mega) as well as long and short beds available.  You can order 3500 models with a dual rear wheel setup.

2010 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT vs. Sport Comparison

Drivers who wish to pay a little more to get an enhanced version of a great truck may be inclined to select the Sport version of the Ram. Those who opt for lower payments are still likely to be highly satisfied by what a new Dodge Ram SLT has to offer. There is no real bad decision that can be made here. It is simply a matter of personal preference in determining which model to drive away with.

First, consider the price differential between these two Ram trucks. The 2010 Ram 1500 Sport is available with a starting MSRP of $36,255. The 2010 Ram 1500 SLT’s pricing begins at $31,790. This represents about a 13% cost increase if a new Ram Sport is chosen.

Another glaring difference between these two trucks is the engine that comes standard with each. A 2010 Ram SLT will provide a more than capable 310 horsepower 4.7-liter V8 engine. Maximum payload with these 4.7-liter V8’s is 1,700 lbs. Ram Sport’s 5.7-liter HEMI V8 is a beast. It produces 390 horsepower and has fuel saver technology built in. This HEMI engine can allow drivers to tow up to 10,200 lbs.

There are numerous other upgrades that a 2010 Ram Sport provides as well. Integrated dual exhaust is an optional feature on Ram SLT, but it is included with the price of a Sport. The same thing can be said for the Sports 20” aluminum wheels. A 2010 Ram Sport comes with various exterior enhancements too. The body colored grill, door handles, and front fascia looks pretty smooth and the fog lights are a nice touch also. The entire front end of Ram Sport looks more dynamic and refined.
