2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Tiny Manual-Shift Buttons
May 12, 2014
The buttons to manually shift the eight-speed automatic transmission on the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel are super small. They're the least manly thing in what is otherwise a pretty ballsy truck.
And they are the most surprising aspect of the Ram's well-thought-out interior.
The buttons work all right when you press them, but because they are so small and grouped tightly with the cruise control functions, they can be hard to find quickly if you want to downshift for some engine braking.
Not to mention if you're wearing bulky work or winter gloves.
