The Ram 1500 Was Made for Winter Fun

2014 Ram 1500

Ram Trucks were built to work, but they’re the ideal choice for fun, too, especially in winter. Credit that to the Ram 1500’s well-known appetite for rough weather and tough conditions.

Part of the challenge in winter sports is getting to where the fun is, but with Ram Trucks’ available four-wheel drive, problem solved. Both on-demand (3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 and 5.7-liter HEMI® V8) and part-time (3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 and 5.7-liter HEMI V8) 4×4 systems are offered. Both employ two-speed, electrically shifted transfer cases with four-wheel drive low/locked capability that allows you to handle the most demanding terrain.

Towing is a requirement for many forms of winter recreation in the great outdoors, from ice boats to snowmobiles. Ram Trucks are engineered from the ground up for towing: standard equipment on every Ram 1500 includes four- and seven-pin trailer harness connectors, prewired and ready to plug in, and electronic trailer sway control. Select the available Trailer Tow Group (standard on Outdoorsman), and your Ram 1500 will be equipped with an integrated, factory-engineered Class IV receiver hitch, trailer brake control, and 7×11-inch towing mirrors. It’s a complete towing package, ready for duty.

With any of the three available engines, Ram 1500 provides generous towing capacity. Ram 1500 models with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 can tow up to 7,450 pounds. The 5.7-liter HEMI V8 offers a towing capacity of up to 10,450 pounds. And the new 3.0-liter turbo EcoDiesel, with its astonishing 420 pound-feet of torque, can handle up to 9,200 pounds at the receiver. With all these great features just made for winter fun, it’s easy to see why Ram asks, “Why buy any other truck?

  • Neil

    Unless you want a heated bench seat in an EcoDiesel – not available!

    • Charles lee

      That is not correct. Mine is in the trim stage of production and I have the heated bench and steering wheel as an option it is listed as in the “luxury “group

    I”m trying to change the gas cap door on the 2014 Ram 1500 and wonder if anyone has changed one, after removing all screws shown in the diagram I found 2 more hidden screws behind the door of the bottom panel. Any ideas how to remove these?
