Shoppers looking for the most innovative truck on the market should be looking for the 2015 Ram 1500. And if you live in Kaneohe, Wahiawa, or Hawaii Kai, HI you should be looking at Cutter Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Honolulu, the best place to find Ram trucks on the island.
The recently refreshed Chevy Silverado 1500 added some advanced interior features, but the chassis and exterior hardly changed at all, while the Ram 1500's style and construction are much more current.
The Ram 1500 has a unique chassis design with a four-wheel coil spring suspension and multi-link rear suspension for a better ride and more precise handling. The Chevy Silverado still makes do with an old style leaf spring rear end that can trace its origins to the earliest cars and trucks, and even horse carts, for that matter. Ram even offers a four-wheel air suspension setup on Crew Cab trucks that not only delivers the smoothest ride possible, it automatically lowers itself for better mileage on the highway.
Available Diesel Power
An option on nearly all the Ram 1500 truck styles and trim levels is a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6. Chevy only offers a diesel option once you move up to the heavier duty, and much more expensive, Silverado 2500 trucks. The Ram 1500's turbodiesel doesn't just give you 420 lb-ft. of torque for towing and hauling, it cruises down the highway getting 28 miles to the gallon, and 20 mpg in city use.
Both the Ram and Chevrolet 1500 trucks offer an eight-speed automatic to maximize fuel efficiency, but in order to get it on the Silverado, you have to order the top of the line truck with the biggest engine. The Ram 1500 comes standard with the eight-speed automatic on most trucks, no matter the trim or motor you select. The extra two gears allow the Ram 1500 to achieve respectable fuel economy no matter what engine you choose, and without sacrificing acceleration or towing ability.
No matter if you buy a simple work truck, or a fully optioned luxury Crew Cab, the 2015 Ram 1500 offers modern designs, modern technology, and modern components. Visit Cutter CDJR in Honolulu, HI to see just how affordable the latest trucks from Ram can be.View Inventory
