All Aboard the 2016 RAM 1500 4x4 Truck in Toronto, Ontario

The distinctions continue to roll in for the RAM 1500: Canada's longest-lasting trucks, Canada's most fuel-efficient trucks, the segments-only diesel engine, the biggest touch-screen media panel in the business (8.4 inches). It only makes sense that if you're looking for a light-duty pickup around Toronto, one equally capable of flexing its muscles or operating as a passenger vehicle down the Ontario highways, that you'll want to take a long look at the new 2016 RAM 1500.

If you're ready to feel what it's like behind the wheel in the most handsome interior of any pickup truck, then come down to Islington Chrysler Dodge Jeep for a test drive. We have plenty of new 2016 RAM 1500 trucks in stock, and you can build and price your own so it's made to measure. Throughout Etobicoke, Mississauga, and the Greater Toronto Area, you won't find better deals or service on RAM trucks than you will with us!

This year, the RAM 1500 gets another upgrade: the truck's body structure has been redefined for improved crash protection. Also, two brand new models are introduced: the Ram Rebel off-road and the Ram Laramie Limited luxury liner!

2016 RAM 1500 Performance and Towing

Two gasoline engines are available in the new RAM 1500. The first is a 3.6L V6 with an 8-speed rotary shift knob, freeing up your center console from a cumbersome shift lever. Standard with a rear-wheel drive setup and two available 4x4 configurations, the engine produces 305 hp and 269 lb-ft or torque, able to tow between 4,190-12,900 pounds depending on the mode and equipment setup.

When Power is your prime concern, the 6- or 8-speed 5.7L HEMI V8 engine calls forth. At 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, you'll be amazed that a light duty truck can tow as much as 15,950 lbs and carry 6,900 lbs when properly equipped.

2016 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel

From the plumes of black smoke and the familiar smell of hard work, if you want a diesel-powered, light-duty pickup, the only option is the 2016 RAM 1500. The 3.0L turbocharged V6 EcoDiesel engine is available across all trim levels. Towing as much as 14,750 lbs and hauling 6,950 when max equipped, the EcoDiesel is also Canada's most fuel efficient pickup: 6.9L/100km, or 34 miles per gallon for highway driving.

2016 RAM 1500 Interior

How many pickups were included in the list of Ward's 10 Best Interiors? Just one: the 2016 RAM 1500. It's easy to see why with its handsome interior, further refined with available leather and wood trim. The inside features only add to the impression, like the keyless ignition and entry that come standard, as well as power-adjustable pedals that suit the 1500 to all drivers. And even when it comes to versatility, the RAM meets the challenge, as evidenced with its intuitive flip-up back seats and watertight storage bins.

2016 RAM 1500 Safety

Even on the entry-level ST model, the new 2016 RAM 1500 cuts no corners, supplying all four wheels with anti-lock disc brakes. With airbags throughout, hill start assist, and trailer sway control, you're protected from the road hazards unique to the pickup truck. Finally, see more from your high perch, front and back. In addition to the rearview camera accessed through the touchscreen, front and rear parking sensors will alert you when unseen objects enter your path.
