2014 Ram 1500
2014 Ram 1500

New for 2014

The 2014 Ram 1500 adds a third engine option in the form of a 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel V-6 producing 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a maxim towing capacity of 9,200 pounds. A new front park assist feature has also been added.

Vehicle Overview

The 2014 Ram 1500 is a full-size truck sold in three cab and bed options, and in rear- and four-wheel drive configurations. It is available in Tradesman, Express, HFE, SLT, Lone Star, and Big Horn grades. Short beds are available exclusively with a crew cab configuration.

Summary

In addition to the diesel V-6, the 2014 Ram 1500 is also available with a 3.6-liter V-6 making 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque or a 5.7-liter V-8 producing 395 hp and 410 lb-ft paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is impressive with diesel trucks with the EPA rating rear-drive variants at 20/28 mpg city/highway and 19/27 mpg with four-wheel drive. Gas engine variants also achieve respectable fuel economy, ranging from 14-18/20-25 mpg depending on the engine and drivetrain configuration. The optional air suspension has helped improve the Ram 1500’s driving dynamics, allowing the driver to adjust the truck’s ground clearance for on- or off-road duties while keeping the ride smooth and the body stable. However, when driving in small two-lane roads, the Ram 1500 feels “bulky and a bit clumsy” compared to its competitors particularly the Ford F-150.
Inside, the Ram 1500 has a well-built cabin that feels upscale particularly in higher trim levels. Available convenience and premium features such as the large 8.4-inch touch screen UConnect interface with navigation, in-car Wi-Fi hotspot option, and leather upholstery “puts some luxury cars to shame.” The Ram 1500’s interior is refined and “extremely quiet—with most of the clatter is only audible only with the windows open.” Additionally, all the premium and convenience options don’t compromise the truck’s practicality and utilitarian functions with an abundance of storage spaces in the bed and inside the cabin. There are, however, some little quirks in the Ram 1500’s interior such as the manual shift controls for the eight-speed automatic mounted in front of the steering wheel, which puts them at a weird position and makes them
The 2014 Ram 1500 has a four-star safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars).

What We Think:

The 2014 Ram 1500 is an excellent truck that combines power, fuel efficiency, capability, and practicality in an upscale, tech-laden package. In a 2014 Driven review, we noted that the truck’s performance “is just as smooth and flawless as we have come to expect” with “gobs of power all the time.” However, the diesel engine’s $2,850 premium over the 5.7-liter V-8, which is mainly due to making it comply with modern emission stands, means buyers must decide whether the fuel economy advantage is worth it.

2014 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty Dualie Laramie Towing
All 2015 Ram pickup trucks will now boast tow ratings certified under the new, more demanding SAE J2807 standard, and impressively, not a single model sees its ratings decline under the new certification process. All versions of the 2015 Ram 1500, 2500 HD, and 3500 HD will henceforth have towing figures that meet the stricter tow ratings.
2014 Ram 1500 Front Three Quarters 02
Automotive enthusiasts are simple creatures. We want power, and lots of it, and we’re here to help you find it in its most affordable form(s). Power doesn’t always mean outright speed though, and big horsepower numbers can show up in unexpected places. For less than $30,000, the best dollars-per-horsepower ratio goes to a bizarre mix of cars, crossovers, and trucks, both fast and slow. What’s clear is that if you want the most ponies for the fewest Benjamins, buy American. (Note: All prices include destination fees.)
2014 Dodge Ram EcoDiesel   Around The Block   Patrick M Hoey 2
As the 2014 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel rolls onto dealer lots, you can expect to hear a lot about the numbers, and for good reason: it’s the first in a new wave of diesel-powered light-duty pickup trucks to be sold in North America, and it promises to provide the towing capacity of a V-8—up to 9200 pounds, depending on specification—and the fuel economy of a V-6 (up to 28 mpg on the freeway).
2014 Ram 1500 Limited EcoDiesel Front
Ram might be on to something with the new 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, as initial demand for this oil-burner has far surpassed the company’s expectations for this powertrain. Ram says it received more than 8000 orders for the EcoDiesel within three days of opening up orders, filling the initial allocation for this configuration.
2014 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Front Passengers Side View Trailer
Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler are finally jumping on board for the Society of Automotive Engineers’ (SAE) universal standard for light-duty pickup tow ratings, called J2807. These changes will take effect for the 2015 model year, as each of the big three will begin publishing tow ratings according to this revised standard.
