Posted on August 31, 2018
Our team over at BetterWay Auto Superstore have an awesome featured vehicle this week in the 2017 Ram 1500 ST. At only a year old with a mere 152kms on the clock, this truck is a steal at only $32,988!
Painted black with a grey interior, this crew cab truck is a bargain. It features the very reliable 5.7-litre V8 engine that produces 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque and sends it to all four wheels via a six speed automatic transmission. It will deliver 17.5L/100 km city and 12.7L/100 km highway which is 15.4L/100 km combined. Not bad for a V8 truck!
This particular model comes with air conditioning, electric windows, cruise control, 6-speaker audio and room for 6 people. With keyless entry, climate control and the usual Ram features, this truck is ideal for leisure or for work. As it is one of our favourite trucks of all time, it isn’t going to hang around long either!
With a towing capacity of 4,826 kg, it is ready for work or play.
What a truck
The Ram 1500 has been steadily improved over the years to deliver a much more responsive and car-like ride while still being ready for anything. As most of us buy trucks for leisure and not work, that’s a great move by Ram. It drives like a big car and not like you expect a truck to drive. It’s one of the many reasons we sell so many of them.
The interior doesn’t hurt either. Seats are comfortable, the cabin is well featured and materials and build quality are top class. Visibility is great as you would expect and you can configure your 1500 to have all the features you would expect in a car too. Everything from a touchscreen to cup holders and pretty much everything in-between.
The V8 engine is smooth and delivers its power throughout the rev range. The transmission may only have six speeds but they are balanced enough to keep things progressive and slick. The option for air suspension offers even more comfort and smoothness whether you’re carrying a load or running empty. It is a primary selling point for Ram trucks.
As is four wheel drive. Necessary for Canadian winters and useful for going off road. The Ram 4x4 system is very capable and while it’s no Wrangler, it can tackle the rough stuff just as well as any other truck.
With great looks, the capable V8 engine, the best colour and lots of interior space, the 2017 Ram 1500 ST is an excellent choice for anyone in the market for a do anything, go anywhere truck. Get down to BetterWay Auto Superstore soon as this truck is too good a deal to be around for long!
