2014 Dodge Ram 1500 Review, Specs and Prices – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the Ram 1500 Redesign. 2014 Ram 1500 Concept is one brand new car from Dodge that was released in 2014. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2014 Ram 1500 Quotes.
Now, the Ram 1500 pushes even further ahead, in its quest to be the most efficient full-size truck. It already had the highest EPA ratings for its base V-6 drivetrain; now it’s adding the first turbodiesel in its class.
Last year the Ram added a host of new features that brought it at least into a neat tie with Ford’s F-150 for utility and performance, with the new GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado closing the gap considerably. The highlights? An eight-speed automatic transmission, a new air suspension, and a more refined cabin, with a new Uconnect Touch infotainment system and much-improved materials and trims. At the same time, ultimate towing and hauling capacity fell slightly, though its uber-truck look went basically unchanged, as it has since the days it was known as the Dodge Ram.
2014 Ram 1500 Price. | Pricing for the new 2014 Ram 1500 has been set at $24,385 – $31,385 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2014 Ram 1500 we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.
The available navigation system offers voice-activated features, new 3D terrain imagery, and lane guidance, as well as fuel-price, weather, sports, and movie info through Sirius Travel Link. There’s also a new seven-inch reconfigurable gauge cluster (in Sport, Laramie, and Laramie Longhorn models) that effectively replaces a conventional gauge cluster and can quickly communicate information depending on how it’s customized, with up to three ‘analog’ gauges at a time (when towing, an owner would configure the trans temp gauge to be in the foreground, for instance). The Ram comes with new powered USB, SD card, and aux-in ports, as well as full iPod control via USB, as well as expanded steering-wheel controls.
Over the years, that scaled-down big-rig look has made it easy to spot the Ram 1500 from a distance. The changes wrought in 2013 are carried over to 2014: the grille is slightly taller than before 2013, and the Ram crosshair grille is now flush. The foglamps are new, and so are the headlamps a twin-beam projector design with LED running lamps, turn signals, side-marker lamps, and tail lamps. Inside, the Ram 1500’s cabin still looks fantastic: the reworked center stack and climate-control, multimedia and infotainment interfaces are the best of all trucks. We’re still at odds sometimes with the eight-speed automatic’s rotary shift knob. It’s supposed to be easy to use with work gloves, and easier to fit in across a wide range of seating options and layouts, but we still find ourselves reaching for a ghost shift lever. Of all the cabins, the Laramie Longhorn is our favorite, with its genuine burl walnut and plush leather.
Underhood, the variable-vane turbocharger does a good job of taming low-speed turbo lag. Even at part throttle, it was easy to make time on back roads or jockey for slots in the ebb and flow of suburban traffic. Chrysler says the 3.0 EcoDiesel engine weighs only 50 more pounds than the Hemi V-8, which is light for a diesel. Keeping extra pounds out of the nose contributes to the EcoDiesel’s feeling of agility, something the big-dog Cummins diesel in heavy-duty Rams can’t claim. Even though the 6.7-liter Cummins in HD Rams offers a sick 30,000 pounds of towing muscle, the EcoDiesel V-6 is still rated for a healthy 9200 pounds.

Chrysler’s Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 is the base engine in the Ram 1500, and it’s tuned for 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque in the full-size truck. It’s powerful enough for casual truck users, and is rated at 17/25 mpg 18 mpg city when stop/start technology is specified, making it the best full-size truck by a wide margin. Its eight-speed automatic doesn’t feel at all busy, though the rotary-knob shifter takes a while to grow accustomed to. It’s now a relevant piece of the Ram powertrain puzzle, even before you factor in the additional eco gold of a stronger but lighter-weight frame (more high-strength steel), aerodynamic shutters, low-rolling-resistance tires, and pulse-width modulation (which improves the efficiency of the alternator and accessories) and a new thermal management system. It’s just not all that strong towing is rated a few hundred pounds less than the V-6 F-150, GMC Sierra, or Chevy Silverado.
The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 comes to these shores courtesy of VM Motori, a longtime Italian marine-diesel-engine builder and former affiliate of Fiat. Ownership is now, interestingly enough, split 50/50 between Chrysler/Fiat and General Motors. Yes, GM. Industry sources tell us that a version of the EcoDiesel was originally being developed for use in the Cadillac CTS, which makes sense, as any company that wants its luxury sedans to be taken seriously in Europe needs to offer an oil burner. The Caddy version bit the dust in GM’s 2009 march to bankruptcy, but today you can buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee with the engine. The Ram version driven here will be on offer by the end of the year, at an estimated $4000 upcharge over the base 3.6-liter Pentastar gas V-6 (or $2850 more than the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 option).
