One of the things that cannot be disputed about the 2016 Dodge RAM 1500 Diesel is the fact that it is relatively new in the market. This follows the facelifts that the model has received in the past few years. Regardless of the fact that it is relatively new, the model has had to go through a series of improvements so as to meet the needs of the prospective buyers. In addition, the manufacturer aims at increasing its sales so as to offer stiff competition against the Ford F-150 model. These reasons are the driving forces behind the newest Dodge RAM 1500 Diesel that has the following features and specifications;
Its aggressive outer appearance will certainly catch the attention of all people. The truck will come adorned in new 18 inch alloy wheels that will withstand all kinds of terrains without wearing off. Another notable change will be the fact that the grille featured in all other models in the same family will be removed. This change will allow for the mounting of an interlocking design of the new crafted grille. Newly designed headlights will also feature in this model and their black highlights will make them more stylish. LED halo rings will also be fitted to give the car a fashionable look.
Although the interior will have changes, they will not be as numerous as those made on the exterior. The standard features found in the Premium RAM will be found in the 2016 Dodge RAM 1500 Diesel. The seats and the dashboard, however, will have slight adjustments. Carbon fiber accents will be seen on the dashboard and the seats will assume a new pattern that will be similar to that found in the Toyo tires of this monster automobile. Advanced safety features and equipment will also be installed in this car.
2016 Dodge RAM 1500 Diesel Engine and Performance
With regard to the engine, some major change is expected compared to the predecessor. The base truck will thus have a 3.6 liter V6 engine that will yield 305 horsepower and tolerate 270 pound feet of torque. The higher trim level will feature a 5.7 liter V8 engine that will have an output of 398 horsepower and 410 pound feet of torque. In the two options, the standard driving model will be the rear wheel drive and the power will be transmitted using a six speed automatic gearbox. A 4-wheel driving mode option will be provided depending on the user’s needs. It is worth noting that with a high output, the fuel utilization rate will be quite high. So as to deal with lack of fuel economy, there are unconfirmed rumors that the model may feature a 3 liter diesel engine with a power output of 300 horsepower and 440 pound feet of torque. This is, again, subject to change as the manufacturer has not voiced their decision on the matter.
2016 Dodge RAM 1500 Diesel Release Date and Price
