The Dodge 1500 Ram Truck is a popular full-size pickup truck that is part of the Ram Truck lineup, formerly known as Dodge Ram. The Dodge Ram truck has been named Truck of the Year four times by Motor Trend magazine, and has won numerous other awards since its introduction in 1981. The Ram 1500 is a powerful daily-use truck that is the first step in the Dodge Ram lineup that includes the 1500, 2500, 3500, and the Chassis cab. The truck itself, now under the brand Ram as opposed to the older Dodge Ram name, comes with one V6 and two V8 engines and is popular among truck enthusiasts and those that don’t need to do a lot of heavy-duty work hauling. The Dodge 1500 comes in six trim levels: Tradesman, SLT, Sport, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Laramie Limited.
