Review Summary:

The Dodge Ram is a full-size pickup truck that has been around since 1981 and is currently in its fourth generation. Sold by the American marque, the Ram goes up against the likes of the GMC Sierra and Ford F-150 in a fight to satisfy your redneck cravings.

Pros

The Dodge Ram is fitted with adjustable air suspension, a feature that isn't very common in its class.

Cons

It's on the pricier side when line-up against its rivals.

The Dodge Ram is big, very big and with a colossal chrome grille up front, it’s also very intimidating. Sporting a muscular hood and a wide stance, there’s nothing quite civilized about the 2014 Dodge Ram. It looks ready to work at a construction site during the week and then rip up dunes over the weekend, and it makes sure you know that.

For a pickup truck that is solely focused on being rough and tough, the cabin is surprisingly different to say the least. Adorned with chrome bits around the A/C vents, leather on the seats and wood trim on the dashboard, it’s civilized and not exactly what you’d expect.

The 2014 Dodge Ram is equipped with air suspension. Yes, you read that right, there’s no need to rub your eyes further. With adjustable air springs, the driver can raise or lower the pickup to one of five ride height settings. Additionally, the smart sensors automatically lower the truck at highway speeds to help reduce drag and increase efficiency.

With just one engine in its line-up, the Dodge Ram reinforces its go big or go home philosophy. Powered by a 5.7 litre HEMI V8 engine that whips out 395 horsepower and 552 Nm of torque, it completes a 0 – 100 km/h run in 7.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 173 km/h.

[tab name=”Verdict”]

At a starting price of AED 120,000, the 2014 Dodge Ram is on the pricier side when compared to rivals such as the GMC Sierra and Ford F150 that ring in cash registers at AED 108,000 and AED 109,000 respectively. But then again, the Ram is that underdog that not many people look at when going in for a pickup truck; which is fine, because now you drive past them and make sure they see you as you roll past at 5 different ride heights…
