1. Ram Air Suspension
If it’s good enough for highway tractors, then why not for light-duty pickups? That must have been the thinking at Ram when the brand introduced a class-exclusive airbag suspension system to the Ram 1500. The bags are now available on the 2500 and 3500 as well, bringing added capability to the brand’s heavy duties.
So what do airbags offer that traditional suspension can’t? First off, air bag systems can self level the truck once weight has been loaded which regulates weight distribution, helping to the keep the truck stable.
Next, at highway speeds the Ram lowers itself by 0.6 inches to improve the trucks aerodynamics. Finally, five different heights can be chosen depending on the circumstances the truck is put in, ranging from “park mode” which lowers the truck to help with entry and exit from parking garages or easy loading, right up to “off-road 2” which lifts the trucks for added ground clearance.
