23 Ram 1500

My first truck after doing lots of research. Love the ride and room in it. My wife likes the ride and how high you ride to see ahead. More affordable then the other brands out there. Palmer Dodge was great to deal with.

Good truck - package availability needs work

Love the truck But, why in the world does Ram not offer the advanced safety group (adaptive cruise, in lane guidance) and the 4 corner air suspension in after sale install kits? At this time: there are 4 - 2023 ecodiesel Rams equipped with advanced safety tech group in the ENTIRE country. There are 3 equipped with air ride....

2023 RAM 1500 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2023 Ram 1500?

The Ram 1500 is a full-size pickup truck with seating for up to six and a wide lineup of trim levels. It’s targeted at rivals like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra. The Ram separates itself from the competition with an interior in higher trims that wouldn’t look out of place in a luxury vehicle. 

A mild-hybrid V-6 drivetrain is standard, but a turbo-diesel V-6 and a pair of V-8 engines — including a 702-hp, supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 in the TRX trim — are also offered. All engines come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and rear- and four-wheel-drive models are available.

(Note: Ram also continues to sell the value-oriented Ram 1500 Classic, a continuation of the brand’s previous-generation light-duty pickup whose basic design dates back to 2009. It’s covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.)

What’s New on the 2023 Ram 1500?

A 12-inch digital gauge cluster is newly available, and an LED hitch lamp is newly standard. An extra-luxurious Limited Elite Edition gets upscale features including premium leather upholstery, a jeweled rotary shifter and a suede headliner. There are also a couple of new uniquely trimmed special-edition trucks, including the TRX Havoc Edition. The 2023 model year will be the last for the Ram’s available turbo-diesel V-6 engine.

What Features in the 2023 Ram 1500 Are Most Important?

Standard features include: 

  • Remote keyless entry
  • Air conditioning
  • Cruise control
  • 5-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Bluetooth connectivity

Available features include: 

  • Four-corner air suspension
  • Dual-panel moonroof
  • 8.4- or 12-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Wireless device charging
  • 360-degree camera system
  • Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking
  • Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Lane departure warning
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability
  • Automatic high-beam headlights

Should I Buy the 2023 Ram 1500?

The Ram 1500 proves that a modern full-size pickup can be anything from a no-frills workhorse to a luxury-laden palace — or even a performance beast, as is the 702-hp TRX. The truck’s high-end trim levels are pricey, though the same is true of this truck’s key rivals. Less expensive trims still deliver a great blend of utility, power, convenience and user-friendly controls.
