  • Looks: As with every full-sized pickup, this Ram is in-your-face macho; without the air suspension and optional steps, it’s a chore to climb into. But while the front end sports that giant, big-rig grille and bulging hood, the whole design is possibly the sleekest of its rivals.
  • Interior: Possibly the best interior in the truck world; sure, there is still hard plastic around there, but the places you touch or lay your arms are softer. The switchgear is generally laid out sensibly, and the rotary gear shifter clears up a lot of space in the centre console. All the seats are generous.
  • Performance: With 240 horsepower, the Ecodiesel won’t win any highway races. But the 420 lb-ft of torque at just 2,000 rpm is what’s important for hauling, and the Crew Cab 4x4s are rated at up to 3,882 kilograms for towing and a 607 kg payload with the shorter bed.
  • Technology: An optional air suspension has the same supple ride but raises or lowers the truck when needed, levels the truck when towing and, at highway speeds, it hunkers down for better fuel economy. Though it offers luxury options such as a heated steering wheel and parking sensors, some safety features on luxury cars, such as emergency brake assist and lane departure warning, are absent.
  • Cargo: The Quad Cab, with the shorter rear passenger area, sports a 6-foot-4 bed, while the Crew Cabs can have that or a standard 5-foot-7 bed. The optional Ram Boxes in the truck sides are handy for storage but slightly narrow the bed, though it still fits a sheet of plywood. Inside the cabin, there are hiding places everywhere.
