After owning a 2009, 2011, 2012 2013 and a 2015 Ram I bought the new 2016 Ram regular cab with Tradesman trim. Regular cabs are not common in my area and I had to look about 60 miles North to find this truck which was equipped just the way I wanted with Chrome bumpers, spray in bedliner, backup camera, and the 5.0 radio upgrade. All this for under 25k. This truck in Granite metallic has the 6cyl engine which provides a lot of power but has a HWY mileage rating at 25mpg. I am keeping this one folks its a great buy and the ride is much better than the 2015 Ford F150 XLT I sold which paid for my brand new Ram. Very quiet cabin with muscular looks on the outside. If you can get a better deal than this go for it. As of 8/2018 I have had no issues with the truck however there is an outstanding recall . My local dealer will be fixing this issue within 2 weeks.
The ignition key is a joke its bulky ugly and reliablity of this key is questionable. Rotary shift is ok but would prefer a lever some oy the interior parts are cheap,howevever,this truck is the bottom line tradesman so I guess it is accetable even though it has the upgraded interior all other features are acceptable except for th location port for the thumb drive. I find the AC, and entertainment center very good.
