The Ram is built at Saltillo Truck Assembly in Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico, Saint Louis Assembly North in Fenton, Missouri, and Warren Truck Assembly in Warren, Michigan.(wikipedia)
The Dodge Ram rides nicely even when empty, but it rides better with a some weight in the bed. The Ram’s rigid chassis minimizes road vibration. Rack-and-pinion steering contributes to sharp handling. The result overall is that the Ram offers responsive handling, a comfortable ride, and a general feeling of tightness.
The Ram is a big truck and on narrow roads it feels big and tall, with broad fenders that seem to fill small country roads. The ride height of the Ram adds to this sensation. It’s sometimes difficult to be sure exactly where your fenders are because you can’t see them. Quad Cab models add 20 inches to the wheelbase and a long bed adds another 20 inches, so a Quad Cab long bed is a long truck, riding on a 160.5-inch wheelbase. It’s long on roominess and utility, but not the easiest to turn around. Wikicars . 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 Concept
All Rams come standard with big four-wheel disc brakes that are smooth and easy to modulate. As mentioned, a choice of engines is available for the Ram. The 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is the most popular engine choice. Fire up the Hemi, let it idle, and it burbles like a good old American V8, though there’s nothing old or outdated about this engine. Although technically a traditional pushrod design with its camshaft in the block, the Hemi’s head geometry is more like that of a multiple-overhead-cam engine and features twin spark plugs, direct ignition, and electronic throttle control. It’s a thoroughly modern engine. The Hemi features Chrysler’s Multi-Displacement System (MDS), which can deactivate four of the eight cylinders when cruising for as much as a 20 percent gain in fuel economy. The switch from eight cylinders to four is usually undetectable to the driver.
The Hemi’s peak power and torque ratings are 345 horsepower at 5400 rpm and 375 pound-feet of torque at 4200. It comes with a modern five-speed automatic transmission that adds to its responsiveness and flexibility. Punch it and you know you’ve got a Hemi under the hood. A properly equipped Hemi increases the Ram’s towing capacity to 9,100 pounds yet it’s rated 14/18 mpg (with 2WD). 2016 Dodge Ram 1500 Concept
The smaller, 4.7-liter V8 delivers responsive performance, though it doesn’t offer the trailer-towing torque of the Hemi. Equipped with the 4.7-liter, the Ram feels eager around town and on winding roads. It accelerates quickly onto freeways and has no trouble powering up grades. This is a smooth, sophisticated engine that always feels ready to go. Its overhead-cam design makes it smaller and more efficient than overhead-valve engines. Fuel efficiency ratings are 14/19 mpg (with 2WD). For 2007, the 4.7-liter V8 is available in most states with Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) capability, meaning it can run on gasoline or up to E85 Ethanol.
