Drivers in search of a new truck typically look at towing and payload capacities rather than fuel economy. That's where the 2017 Ram 1500 comes. There are three top-tier pickups born and made in the United States: Our very own Ram 1500, the Ford F-150, and Chevrolet Silverado 1500. At Withnell Dodge, we believe in stocking capable trucks designed to go the extra mile without breaking the bank. That's why we're here to assure you that the new Ram 1500 can deliver at a lower cost than comparable models.


Simply tossing a V8 engine in and slamming the hood shut simply won't suffice these days. Modern trucks require a variety of engines capable of producing effective performance, competitive fuel economy, and reliability for years to come. A weak engine makes for a weak truck which is why the Ram 1500 is designed to deliver on driver expectations.

The Ram 1500 boasts a maximum towing capacity of 10,450 lbs., easily topping the Chevrolet Silverado 1500's 9,400 lbs. It offers the only true competition to the Ford F-150's 10,500 lbs. maximum towing capacity.

Hauling is just as important as towing for most drivers which is why the Ram 1500 offers a respectable 1,933 lbs. payload capacity. The Ford F-150 tops it with a maximum payload capacity of 2,320 lbs. while the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 comes in nearly even with a maximum payload capacity of 1,965 lbs.

What else does the 2017 Ram 1500 have to offer?

As has already been proven, trucks tend to offer plenty of capability for the average drive. That's why the new Ram 1500 excels in other areas as well. A world-class interior and advanced Uconnect infotainment system make this pickup tough to beat. That's not to mention the EPA-estimated 29 hwy mpg*.
