Overview

What's New in the 2015 RAM 1500?

After major updates in 2013 and 2014, the Ram enters 2015 largely unchanged.  

Which 1500 is the Best?

If you're pulling heavy loads, there is just no substitute for the power and torque of the 5.7-liter V8. We'd opt for the Sport or Laramie editions, which are nicely equipped and reasonably priced. If your truck use is on the lighter side (just moving jet skis or mountain bikes), you can't go wrong with an SLT equipped with the 3.6-liter V6. It has plenty of power, delivers impressive fuel economy and can be equipped with most of the most desirable options in the Ram inventory. We suggest driving the diesel first to see if it matches your expectations for acceleration and passing power. Find a Ram 1500 for sale

 

How Much Does a 2015 RAM 1500 Cost?

The Ram 1500 is offered in a wide array of body styles, trim levels, engine sizes and drivetrain options. We've summarized the trims here, but note that there may be some variation in features and pricing depending on the truck you choose.

At the bottom of the Ram lineup is the commercial-oriented Tradesman ($26,100), which comes with only the basics: steel wheels, vinyl floor coverings and seats, air conditioning and a locking tailgate. You won't even get features such as keyless entry, power locks or power mirrors, though those items are optional.

Next up in the Ram world is the HFE model ($30,300), which stands for High Fuel Economy. Only offered with 2-wheel drive, the Ram 1500 HFE includes a 3.21:1 axle ratio, a start-stop engine that shuts off when idling and a tonneau cover -- all geared toward improving gas mileage. It also includes cloth upholstery and power accessories as standard equipment.

Above the HFE in the Ram lineup is the SLT, which starts at $30,500. It adds alloy wheels, chrome exterior trim and dual glove boxes. This is the Ram's volume trim level, as shoppers can add many options to equip it in just about any way they desire.

Topping the SLT is the Ram 1500 Sport ($35,800), which adds power-folding mirrors, integrated mirror turn signals, an overhead console with a garage door opener, 20-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, an 8.4-in touchscreen with Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system, wireless hot spot capability, voice control, power adjustable pedals, heated front seats and a power driver's seat.

Next up is the Ram 1500 Laramie ($41,500), which is essentially a luxury pickup truck. It adds leather upholstery, driver's seat memory, a power passenger seat, an upgraded audio system, wood trim and chrome bumpers.

Topping the range is the crew-cab-only Longhorn ($47,200), which adds a remote starter, park assist, a navigation system with traffic updates, a larger fuel tank and tow hooks. An available Limited package boasts automatic wipers, a keyless ignition, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats and rear air suspension.

The Ram 1500 offers many options. Several of the truck's lower trim levels, for instance, offer optional features found in high-end Ram models. There are even a few available option packages, including the feature-heavy Lone Star (for Texas truck shoppers) and Big Horn (for shoppers elsewhere) editions, which are available on the Ram 1500 SLT, and the off-road-oriented Outdoorsman, which offers skid plates, all-terrain tires and other 4-wheel-friendly features.

RAM 1500 Safety

Is the 2015 RAM 1500 a Safe Car?

Standard safety equipment includes front-side chest airbags and full-length side-curtain airbags, as well as electronic traction and stability control, trailer sway control, hill-start assist and automatic reverse pinch protection on the windows and sunroof. Rain Brake Support uses the brake pads to occasionally brush water away from the rotors, helping to keep them dry and more able to stop the vehicle.

In the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's testing, the Ram 1500 Quad Cab earned four overall stars: four stars in frontal and rollover tests, along with five stars in NHTSA's side-impact assessment. The Ram with a regular cab achieved the same results.

Competition

2015 RAM 1500 vs the competition

Chevrolet Silverado -- The newly redesigned Chevrolet Silverado offers fuel-efficient new engines, a redesigned interior and an impressive ride -- all of which give the Ram a run for its money.

Ford F-150 -- The all-new F-150 boasts excellent EcoBoost powertrains along with strong fuel economy numbers and a heavily improved driving experience and interior. Even if you're a die-hard Ram driver, the latest Ford is worth a look.

Used RAM 2500 HD -- If you need even more capabilities than the Ram can offer, you might find that the brawny 2500 HD is more for you. Unfortunately, prices can be pretty high, which is why we suggest checking out a used model.
