The Dodge RAM, known plainly as the RAM in the US and Canada, started production back in 1981. It comes in six different trims - ST, SXT, SLT, TRX, Sport Laramie, and Power Wagon - and four different cab options - Crew Cab (new for 2010), Mega Cab, Quad Cab, and Regular Cab.
The RAM is powered by a plethora of engine options, including a 3.7L V6 producing 215 HP and 235 lb-ft of torque, a 4.7L V8 delivering 310 HP and 330 lb-ft of torque, a 5.7L V8 with 355/390 HP and 395/404 lb-ft of torque, and a 6.7L turbodiesel I-6 getting 350 HP and 610/650 lb-ft of torque. These engines are mated to either a 6-speed manual or a choice of three different automatics: 4-, 5-, or 6-speed.
