If you're a hard worker, you need a truck that works as hard as you do. That's why, when people ask us about hardworking vehicles at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM in Baxley, we'll usually point them towards a 2016 RAM truck. Specifically, we'll indicate the 2016 RAM 1500, which, with a massive V8 engine available, is one of the hardest-working vehicles out there. Not only is this truck a powerful towing machine, it also makes hard work easier with its smooth ride and comprehensive list of available features. Check out how this inspiring vehicle stacks up against the competition.
The 2016 RAM 1500 is a brilliant machine, with its one-of-a-kind coil-spring suspension delivering one of the smoothest rides in its class. Too often, pickup trucks are judged solely on the merit of how much they can tow. The 2016 RAM 1500 can tow a lotâ€"10,640 lbs when equipped with the available 5.7-liter V8 engineâ€"but its utility is best measured by other metrics. This metric is customization. The big engine, for example, is available on all trims (except the HFE) ranging from the practical Tradesman to the palatial Longhorn. Would you prefer fuel economy? Shove in the 3.0-liter "EcoDiesel" V6 engine, and achieve 22 MPG city and 28 MPG highway. What about off-roading? Try the 2016 RAM 1500 Rebel trim, which comes with heavy steel underbody plates to prevent damage, huge shock absorbers, tow hooks, and for good measure, heated front-row seats.
After a 2015 redesign, the 2016 Ford F-150 now features lightweight aluminum body panels and contains mostly six-cylinder engines. There's still a 385 horsepower 5.0-liter V8 in the mix, but its acceleration and fuel efficiency are limited by the fact that it's only linked to a six-speed automatic, as opposed to the eight-speed contained by the RAM. Relatedly, in no configuration does the Ford F-150 match the EcoDiesel-equipped 2016 RAM 1500 in terms of mileage. Both trucks have respectable configuration options in terms of body styles, cab lengths, bed lengths, and so on. The RAM 1500 slightly edges out the F-150 in terms of interior space, with compartments under the front bench, rear seats, and fenders. Similarly, both trucks have roughly equivalent features, though many reviewers note that the Chrysler UConnect infotainment system is objectively easier to use and understand than that of Ford. Drivers in Baxley will find that the 2016 RAM 1500 wins out in terms of comfort and usability.
Drivers will find that the 2016 RAM 1500 checks out all the sweet spots in terms of easy-to-use features, precision driving, and a smooth ride. If Baxley drivers need a higher towing capacity, the Woody Folsom CDJR staff be happy to point them towards a more heavy-duty RAM truck. That being said, most drivers will find the 2016 RAM 1500 to be much more than adequate for their requirements. Don't believe us?
