When life demands a full-size pickup truck, then it's time to get behind the wheel of the Ram 1500. Ithaca, Binghamton, and Cortland drivers seeking a truck should visit Maguire Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT for a Ram 1500 test drive at our dealership.

Before you do that, though, it's a good idea to check out the latest Ram 1500 specs. These specifications are designed to let you know what to expect and how to best utilize your next truck, so let's dive in and take a closer look at the Ram 1500.

Ram 1500 Engine Specs

The Ram 1500 comes standard with a V6 engine which makes 305 horsepower, though it's possible to upgrade to the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 for a bit more of a punch. The V8 checks in at 395 horsepower, with both engines carrying mild-hybrid eTorque technology, which is able to help in the efficiency department while providing capable performance.

These engines are able to provide outstanding towing capability when you need it. The Ram 1500 offers a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds and a max payload of 2,300 pounds. Whether you're hitching up a trailer or bringing a boat along to Seneca Lake for the weekend, the Ram 1500 will be there for you.

Cargo Box Dimensions

While you may have a trailer hitched up and the back seat loaded, there's a good chance you'll be using the cargo box to your advantage. The cargo bed in the Ram 1500 is up to the challenge with the Quad Cab pickup coming with a 6'4 bed and the Crew Cab offering both 5'7 and 6'4 options.

The multifunction tailgate offers a 60/40 split, with more ways to access the bed. It holds up to 2,000 pounds with a kick-out bed step deploying from under the rear bumper to make loading and unloading a breeze.

The cargo box offers up 66.4 inches of cargo width, while the tailgate opening width is 60 inches. The 5'7 box is 21.4 inches deep, while the 6'4 box is 21.5 inches deep. Use this depth to your advantage when hauling bags of mulch, tools, and so much more.

Ram 1500 Interior Dimensions

Stretch out inside the Ram 1500 with 40.9 inches of front headroom and 40.9 inches of front legroom. Whether you're heading around the corner or across New York, there's plenty of room for those seated up front.

Those in the back aren't forgotten about, either. With 39.2 inches of rear headroom and 35.6 inches of rear legroom in the Quad Cab, taller passengers will have plenty of space. The Crew Cab is even more spacious, offering 39.8 inches of rear headroom and 45.2 inches of rear legroom.
