2010 RAM 1500 Owner's Manual
Dodge RAM 1500 is a car that belongs to the class of pickup trucks from the American brand Dodge. In 2010, this model, for the most part, was left without restyling.
The buyer is offered a choice of three different brands of gasoline engines, but with the same volume and the same generated power. This is a 3.7-liter engine that is capable of delivering 215 horsepower. It works in tandem with an automatic transmission. The drive in this version is offered only rear. There are seven different brands of engines that come in 4.7 liters, all generating 310 horsepower.
They also work in tandem with an automatic transmission. But this option has a huge plus, and it’s all-wheel drive. There is another version of the engine with a volume of 5.7 liters, which can produce a maximum power of 390 horsepower. The drive here can be either rear or full. But it also works in tandem with an automatic transmission. Owner reviews indicate that off-road the car behaves quite harshly, but at the same time confidently.
Exterior and interior
As for the exterior, outwardly, the 2010 Dodge RAM 1500, according to the owners, resembles a giant SUV-truck hybrid. Also, the car is distinguished by the strength of the metal from which it is made. There is a lot of space in the cabin. And all this is upholstered with high-quality natural materials, with inserts from the same natural wood. Very good functionality, with all the necessary sensors, high-quality, informative dashboard.
There are a lot of different niches for storing things – these are glove compartments and pockets. A distinctive feature is that the gear lever is located on the steering wheel. And for some users of this car, this has become a plus, although they used to think that it was inconvenient. The rear seats can be folded into a bed, and even very tall people can sit comfortably. The luggage compartment is very roomy, which is great for those who are going to carry bulky and large loads. The owners say that a sheet of drywall fits completely.
A definite plus is that the 2010 Dodge RAM 1500 starts very well in cold weather. But at the same time, its gigantic volume does not allow it to warm up quickly, so that you can feel comfortable. Yes, and a lot more important detail, which, probably, can be attributed to the minuses – a very high consumption of fuel consumed. In the city, this figure reaches 28-30 liters.
The first most important competitor for “our giant” from another manufacturer is the Toyota Tundra.
