April 20th, 2020 by

If you’re thinking about buying a new Ram truck, there are more options than you may have initially realized. You can choose from the Ram 1500, Ram 2500, Ram 3500, Ram Chassis Cab, Ram 1500 Classic, and any of the Ram 1500 special edition trucks. With so many options, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. That’s why we’ve put together this list to give you things to consider when you’re finding the best Ram truck for your situation.

  • What are your Ram truck needs?

First and foremost, the truck you choose has to be well-suited to what you need it for. If you’re looking for a Ram work truck, you may want to consider the Ram 2500 or the Ram 3500. If you need a truck you can customize for your extremely heavy-duty business needs, the 2020 Ram Chassis Cab with upfitting capabilities may be perfect for you. If you are part of the Ram family who simply enjoys driving a Ram truck on a daily basis, try the Ram 1500. Whichever Ram truck you choose will undoubtedly last you for a long time and satisfy your requirements.

  • Are the engine options enough for you?

Your Ram truck’s engine should carry you with all the performance, efficiency, payload and powerful driveability that you need. Be sure to select the engine configuration that is right for you. If you need help deciding, feel free to speak with one of our Ram truck experts to help you. 

  • What is the towing capacity of the Ram truck?

If your Ram truck will be used to pull anything, you should check the towing capacity. You may want to pull your RV for family trips across the country, or you may need to pull your trailer for work. Most Ram trucks will likely accommodate your needs, but this is a factor to bear in mind if you’re towing especially heavy loads.

  • Is there any advanced driver technology?

Advanced driver technology comes pretty standard in modern new vehicles, so this point may be more relevant if you’re searching for a used Ram truck. Still in your new ram truck, you may want to consider exactly what safety technology is included. 

  • What is included in the infotainment system?

Similarly to judging your needs for the advanced driver technology, you should do the same for the infotainment system. For many people, the infotainment center is the heart of their drive, so the Ram truck you choose should have all the infotainment features you desire.

  • Is the interior comfortable for you and any passengers?

The interior of your Ram truck matters. Make a point to configure the interior options that are comfortable for you, especially if you’ll be traveling in your truck for long periods of time. 

Overall, your Ram truck will be a powerful vehicle with plenty of versatility. It’s up to you how to configure it, but as long as it fits your wants and needs, you’ll have made a good decision in buying a new Ram 1500, Ram 2500 or any other Ram truck.
