At Jim Cogdill Dodge in Sevierville TN the Ram 1500 comes in seven trims: the base Tradesman, HFE, Big Horn, the off-road Rebel, followed by the Laramie, Long Horn and Limited. All come with the coil-spring rear suspension and offer the mild hybrid eTorque system, neither of which is matched in the half-ton pickup class.
Many models come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine with the eTorque system, and they can be optioned up to a 5.7-liter V8 with or without eTorque. The V8 is standard on Laramie, Long Horn and Limited models. The new diesel engine is also available on any trim level, with the exception of the HFE, which is only available in the quad cab body style with the gasoline V6 and rear-wheel drive. A smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission is matched with each engine.
The Tradesman from Jim Cogdill Dodge in Sevierville TN comes with 18-inch steel wheels and some niceties such as a 5-inch touchscreen, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and push-button start. There's also trailer sway damping and a six-speaker stereo. Crew-cab versions have second-row in-floor storage.
There are few optional upgrades for the HFE, which is essentially an efficiency-minded Tradesman model with an appearance package and few hardware deletions. Upgrades include 20-inch chrome wheels with low-rolling resistance tires, side steps, a tonneau cover, a carpeted floor, and front bucket seats (rather than a 40/20/40-split bench). The HFE does not have a rear stabilizer bar, an engine oil cooler or cargo tie-down hooks. Fuel economy rises 1 mpg in combined and highway cycles compared to a rear-wheel-drive Tradesman with the V6.
Moving up to the Big Horn adds 18-inch aluminum wheels, foglights and a 60/40-split rear seat. The real leap comes in the available options, including an 8.4-inch or even 12-inch touchscreen. Both offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. If you're thinking off-road, turn to the Rebel with its aggressive styling. An electronic locking rear axle and four skid plates are prepared to hit the nearest desert trail at full speed.
Ram takes a sharp turn toward luxury with the Laramie trim. Here the 8.4-inch screen is standard, as are 20-inch wheels and power mirrors and rear window. The leather-trimmed front seats are heated, ventilated and power-adjustable. Driver assistance features such as forward collision warning and lane keeping assist are available in optional safety packages.
In addition to countless features packages and stand-alone luxury, tech and mechanical options, the Ram 1500 from Jim Cogdill Dodge in Sevierville, TN is available with a number of special graphics packages. These include the military-themed Built to Serve package (with the 4x4 Off-Road Group package, 20-inch wheels, and low-production exterior colors not available on other models) and Black Edition and Night Edition packages, which add black-colored styling elements to higher-end trims.
