The exceptional appearance of the pickup is thought out to the smallest detail. The car is available in bright colors, with exclusive accessories that will increase functionality. The embossed hood and radiator grille are complemented by elegant and at the same time massive LED headlights, fog lamps and taillights.
A line of four power units with an improved performance indicator is available for the RAM 1500 pickup truck:

Safety systems and driver assistants
The developers have improved the function of observing the row of traffic. The all-round camera allows the driver to monitor the situation around the vehicle. Blind spot monitoring system makes driving easier. Assistants also include parking assistant, adaptive cruise control and others.
Advantages and disadvantages
The developers have improved the aerodynamic indicators as much as possible. When reaching a speed of 50 km/h, the front spoiler in the lower part of the bumper is automatically extended. Design features, the raised shape of the hood and the sculpted surface of the roof, direct the flow of air to the rear spoiler.
The Speed Control system ensures a constant speed of the car when moving on uneven terrain. This allows the driver to concentrate on driving as much as possible.
Despite the universality of the pickup, it was not without its shortcomings. The car is quite clumsy on narrow city streets. Drivers also pointed out the lack of a manual gearshift mode.
