On the outside the Ram 1500 carries the familiar big-rig look
started by Dodge. On the inside it is full of interesting features.
It's an American full-size pickup truck, but it is different in
several ways from its most likely competitors, the Ford F-150 and
Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The interior has its own flavor and
offers several interesting amenities, and the cargo box has some
unique features. Underneath, where for decades pickup trucks have
had live axles with leaf springs, the Ram's live axle is suspended
by coil springs and it is located by four trailing links and a
lateral track bar.
