2012 NY Auto Show: 2013 Ram 1500

The 2013 Ram 1500 was revealed at the 2012 New York Auto Show today. The new Ram 1500 was built from the ground up and was created to be perfect. The Ram 1500 will have the option of the Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine or the 5.7L Hemi V8 engine. The V6 is rated at 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. The V8 is rated at 395 hp and 407 lb-ft of torque. Both engine will be paired with a 8-speed automatic transmission.

Some new features and technology include:
*Auto stop-start technology
*Electric power steering
*Shutters which are used to reduce aerodynamic drag
*Flexible air dam
*Air suspension
*Rotary shift knob

The Ram 1500 receives all new sheet-metal while retaining that distinct Ram look, making it standout even more. There is no denying that the 1500 is bold and aggressive. There is also heavy use of chrome, which in my opinion is done very nicely. The interior of the Ram also receives a major upgrade making the 1500 look very luxurious. The Chrysler Group's 8.4 in touchscreen makes its way into the new 1500.

Overall I am very impressed with what Ram has done. The 1500 is one of the most beautiful vehicles I've seen these past two days. Ram sells tons of these pickup trucks and I am sure they will sell even more once this truck hits the market. I am not a truck person but I really want to be in this vehicle and drive it!

What do you think of the 2013 Ram 1500?
