Top 10 Cars of the 2012 NY Auto Show

7. 2013 RAM 1500

It might just be an update, but it’s a big one. The 2013 RAM 1500 is the first truck to offer an 8-speed automatic transmission, something that will help the V6 model achieve 20 percent better fuel economy and the V8 get 10 percent better numbers.

Other major changes to the 2013 model year truck include an active air suspension that can raise or lower the truck (even at speed), active grille shutters, a thermal management system to heat up fluids faster, start-stop engine technology plus the ability to turn the truck into a rolling wi-fi hotspot.
