2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Versatile Backseat
May 14, 2014
Our long-term 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has one flexible backseat. Check this out.
When you flip up the bottom cushion (one hand operation; no latch or lever to pull), here's what you see:
Those two plastic doohickeys swing upward on hinges to become legs, and then you can flip the platform over like this:
Now you've got a pretty good sized flat surface to stash, say, a tall box. It's a fairly light-duty platform, so don't go heaving an engine block onto it.
If you want to use the seat, too, you can flip the seat bottom back into place with the platform still deployed:
You can also store, uh, stuff underneath the folded-up platform:
All in all, a very handy backseat. Well done, Ram.
