There's also an exciting new TRX model.
The new 1500 has a stylish cabin with tons of passenger and cargo space. Every model comes with a touchscreen Uconnect system, a split bench seat, remote keyless entry, and many other handy features. There are also tons of safety features that will help keep you and your friends and family members protected on the road. This pick-up is ready for whatever life throws at you.
The new 1500 has all the features you could ever need in any kind of ride. It comes with a state-of-the-art 12-inch touchscreen Uconnect system. That's the largest screen in any truck ever.

The 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system has the highest number of speakers in its class. Whatever you're listening to, you'll enjoy high-quality sound all throughout the cabin.
The noise cancellation system will block out all outside noise when you're inside the truck. Then, you can focus solely on driving, music, or conversation with friends and family.

The new reconfigurable head-up display projects your speed, incoming calls, navigation, and other information right onto your windshield. You never have to take your eyes off the road.

Every model also has upper and lower glove compartments, and the lower compartment is lockable. The seven-inch driver information digital cluster display has full-color 3D graphics. It shows you your speed, tire pressure, coolant temp, and other vehicle information. There's also a 10-square-foot panoramic sunroof that spans almost the entire length of roof.
All Ram trucks are built with safety in mind, and the new 1500 is no exception.
