Ram 1500: Best Used Models
We understand how you feel: we love the Ram trucks too. And like you, we find it really hard to make a choice between trucks. Since 1980, tens of millions of Ram trucks have been sold. So, which years do we like the best? Here are our picks for the best used Ram models.
2010 Ram 1500
If we can only pick one of the Ram trucks to love and buy, it would be this model year’s Ram 1500. This was the first year that the truck’s Gross Combined Weight Rating rose from 14,000 to 15,500lbs. This was also the first year the Ram used new technology to save fuel economy. The truck also included a braking system that made towing easier. The 2010 Ram also featured the first integration with your iPod or cell phone, which means you can stream music. This truck gives you one of the best bargains out there.
2012 Ram 1500
Our second favorite Ram truck is the 2012 Ram 1500. We like this truck because of the introduction of the Ram cargo management system for hauling all of your tools and gear. The 2012 Ram also offered surround sound as well.
2009 Ram 1500
This Ram truck was the introduction of the fourth generation with lots of bells and whistles. The 2009 Ram had a new optional HEMI engine, a Rambox cargo management system, and a new four door cab style, as people move to having family trucks. The 2009 Ram also had a much-improved navigational system. Another great reason to get this truck? The backseat TV feature from Sirius, which means the kids won’t drive you nuts on the road.
2011 Ram 1500
While this truck put in new features that continue to impress new drivers, the Ram 1500 also had some new optional equipment available. First, the truck made available a new V6 engine with 3.7 liters, which gave it more horsepower. The engineers also introduced a leaf-spring rear suspension that makes the truck ride more smoothly. There is a new bedliner, and new power folding mirrors as well. The real praise comes from the new special editions and trim features on this model. The Outdoorsman, Tradesman and Laramie Longhorn editions have proven to be extremely popular.
