The RAM 1500 in Nassau, Suffolk, and Long Island, New York

If there's work to be done in the Nassau, Suffolk, and Long Island, New York areas, there's a RAM 1500 equipped to handle the job. This versatile heavy duty truck is available in a wide-range of customization options that can handle the demands of anything from a truck that's used to move tools to jobsite through a construction site mobile office. Its safety, control, and capability features help it handle the sometimes uncooperative driving conditions around urban and suburban New York. Drivers can count on the RAM 1500 being able to manage even the toughest of jobs.

RAM 1500 Features

The heart of the RAM 1500 is its engine: having cargo-hauling capabilities isn't a want or bonus, but a key factor in the truck's daily use. Drivers can choose between two engine options. the standard 305 horsepower 3.6-literPentastar® V6 with eTorque gets 269 lb-ft. of torque for reliable performance. However, if the job needs more power, check out the available 395 horsepower 5.7-literHEMI® V8 that gets 410 lb-ft. of torque. Drivers can expand on the 5.7-liter Hemi engine with the available eTorque mild hybrid system. It helps improve fuel economy and can contribute an additional 130 lb-ft. of torque when activated. All models come equipped with a convenient, responsive Torqueflite® eight-speed automatic transmission that helps give plenty of torque at all speeds. The truck's body is also very sturdy: its steel is made of 98% high-strength steel.

Unlike other trucks which really skimp on features on the base-level trims, the RAM 1500 comes packed with technology. The  Uconnect® 3 with 5-inch touchscreen comes standard and includes both Voice Command and Bluetooth® Streaming Audio. The Uconnect system also works in conjunction with the ParkView® rear back up camera, which displays a backside view of the vehicle on the screen when in reverse. The camera takes a lot of stress out of backing in to tight spots, especially for parallel parking. It also offers a view which makes it much easier for the driver to establish the dimensions of the truck relative to what's behind it. The RAM 1500 also includes power door locks and power front windows on all trims, which are an added convenience often left out of trucks. Remote keyless entry and Electric Park Brake are standard features as well.

Buying Points

The RAM 1500 helps sell itself by offering a wide range of customization options across six trims. Depending on the truck's job needs, choose between Quad Cab® and Crew Cap options and a 5'7" or 6'4" box depending on the trim. Owners can also pick from a wide range of monotone and two-tone color options to fit personal taste or business logo colors. Blue Streak Pearl-Coat offers a relaxed and refined look while the two-tone Flame Red Clear-Coat/Billet Silver Metallic Clear-Coat has a sporty-feel to it.

The RAM 1500 also has plenty of interior customizations available. If the truck also serves as a mobile office, one of the six leather options including the smooth-looking Black Premium Leather Bucket and the outdoors-inspired Cattle Tan/Black Premium Leather Bucket can give the vehicle a strong sense of professionalism. Alternatively, there are six vinyl and cloth seating color options.

While convenience features are nice, if the truck can't haul the cargo it needs to for the job, it's not going to work. Depending on the configuration, the RAM 1500 can manage a maximum 2,300 lbs. payload and a 12,750 lbs. towing capacity.

The RAM 1500: Perfect for Nassau, Suffolk, and Long Island, New York

Many of the unique features of the RAM 1500 make it precisely tuned to handle life in Nassau, Queens, and Long Island, New York. In particular, the included backup camera is beyond helpful for jobs in urban and suburban environments. Backing up a truck in a wide open space can be challenging enough, so having to back it in to a tight parallel parking space to reach a jobsite can be overwhelming. The camera makes the vehicle much easier to fit in spots, so the driver won't have to miss out on spots where the truck will fit, but there would be a high risk of bumping another vehicle without the assistance of the camera.

While the available 4x4 on all models is mostly associated with improved hauling performance, it also is a fantastic feature for managing the cold, snowy winters in New York. The improved control helps keep the vehicle, cargo, and passengers safe when the road conditions aren't being cooperative.
