Here in the Akron, OH area, there are many drivers with hefty towing and cargo requirements. Whether you’re a contractor, a blue collar worker, or just somebody who needs to tow a boat, you’re going to want a pickup truck that can handle the load. Luckily, here at Fred Martin Superstore, we have just the truck for you, the 2017 RAM 1500. This is a pickup truck that seamlessly blends exterior and engine toughness with in-town comfort and luxury. 

We’ll start with the basics. The 2017 RAM 1500 is a full-size pickup truck available in multiple body styles. You can choose the two-door, three-seat regular cab, the four-door, six-seat Quad Cab, or the larger four-door Crew Cab. Adding to the configuration options are 10 trim levels, starting with the base Tradesman all the way up to the top-of-the-line Limited. Value-minded buyers will be interested in the base model, which comes equipped with a spray-in bedliner, 17-inch steel wheels, vinyl floor covering, and a six-speaker sound system with a USB port and auxiliary input jack. Higher trims add luxuries such as the Uconnect infotainment system, a large touchscreen, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, smartphone integration, a heated steering wheel, and a helpful navigation system.

Now, you may be wondering what lies underneath the hood. The 2017 RAM 1500 has three available engines, starting with the base 3.6-liter gasoline V6 engine good for 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Buyers looking to save at the pump should consider the EcoDiesel engine, a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine that cranks out 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. If you need the most power available, check out the powerful 5.7-liter V8 engine that is good for 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.
