2015 Dodge Ram | new car review
The Dodge Ram is fitted with adjustable air suspension, a feature that isn't very common in its class.
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 2015 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 2015 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.
What’s on offer?
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.
At a starting price of AED 117,000, the 2015 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 a fair bit less. But then again, the Ram is that underdog that not many people look at when going in for a pickup truck, which is fine, as long as they see you roll past at five different heights.
