The RAM 1500

For decades now, RAM has been innovating in the truck industry, turning heads with new ideas and offering unique features to make owning a RAM a great experience. Though it has the power to go toe-to-toe with any truck on the market, the RAM 1500's coil spring suspension sets it apart. This unique suspension brings a great deal of comfort without sacrificing towing power or capability.

Speaking of power, used RAM 1500 models can be found with several engine options depending on Iowans' needs. The base 3.6l V6 provides greater power than many other base engines offered in full-size pickup trucks, and is also more efficient than older, bigger V6's like the one found in many Silverado models.

One of the most undeniably popular engine options on used RAM 1500s is the 5.7l HEMI V8. This powerful engine offers a great balance of drivability and grunt, getting the job done and also being polite enough to take the family out on the town.

Last but certainly not least, RAM's unique 3.0l turbodiesel has been a favorite among our Ames customers due to its unrivaled efficiency and great torque. For those who will be towing long distances, or who just want to spend less time at the pump, the diesel engine is a great option.

Interior & Features

While full-size trucks are still judged by their on-the-job performance, their ability to serve as the family vehicle is more important than ever. More and more Ames, IA residents are using their pickup trucks to run errands, take the kids to school, and even go on road trips. That's why a truck needs to be judged based on more than just its towing capacity, which of course RAM models have in spades.

Luckily for Iowans shopping for a RAM 1500, comfort and even luxury can easily be found in used RAM models. Even the base Work Truck comes with RAM's coil spring suspension, but most Iowa families step up in trim level. If you're looking for a winning combination of capability, luxury, and value, it's hard to beat a used RAM 1500 Laramie. The Laramie trim brings the welcome addition of leather interior, as well as tech and convenience features that make the used RAM 1500 a great choice for Ames families.
