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.

Overall, your new or used Ram truck will be a powerful vehicle with plenty of versatility.
