RAM Truck Interior and Exterior Features

Drivers should also consider what they’d like to find in their pickup truck interior! The RAM 1500 starts out with more interior features for passengers, but the 2500 and 3500 offer no-nonsense interiors that may be appreciated by drivers who mostly use their pickup on their Abilene or Eastland job site.

    • [B] – No More than Three

    • [A] – Yes, and I need rear childproof door locks
    • [B] – No, I only require the basic pickup safety features
  • What Utility Features Matter Most?
    • [A] – Keyless Access and Hill Start Assist
    • [B] – Tow/haul mode select

Tallying Your Score

For each question, the answer [A] represents a preference for the full-size 2019 RAM 1500 vs. 2500 or 3500. For questions with both [B] and [C] options, your selection of either will indicate a preference for the 2018 RAM 2500 or the 2018 RAM 3500, respectively.

If a question only let you choose between [A] and [B], the 2500 and 3500 offer identical features, and you’d be happy with both. If you answered [B] on many of these, make your selection, 2500 or 3500, based on whether or not you answered [C] in any of the three-option questions.
