TOUGH ENOUGH: Rugged 2015 Ram 1500 unashamed to show its gentler side

Ram (formerly Dodge Ram) pickup trucks have become a hot commodity in the light-duty segment.

With a mind-numbing number of models, from work-ready Tradesman to opera-appropriate Limited, there’s bound to be a Ram that meets your needs.

Add in the choices of two-door regular cab or four-door Crew and Quad cabs, and with engine options from an efficient gasoline V-6 through Hemi V-8s, you can pick your powerplant.

And then there’s the EcoDiesel option, available virtually across the model lineup. This engine, with its eight-speed automatic transmission, provides pretty terrific fuel economy – rated 19 city/27 highway in our Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Edition Crew Cab 4×4 – and a deep well of 420 pound-feet of stump-pulling torque.

While horsepower is a seemingly measly 240, it’s that torque that turns the big truck into a towing, hauling, highway-gobbling tour de force. While piloting our tester on a 600-mile jaunt around New Mexico’s vast, wide-open northeastern quarter, we averaged 24.6 mpg, and that included several miles of four-wheeling down and up a rugged road to Mills Canyon in the Kiowa National Grassland, honkin’ down empty two-lanes across the high lonesome prairie, and lengthy interstate slogs.

The Longhorn Edition trim brings a level of luxury to pickups virtually unheard of 20 years ago. Lavished with virtually every comfort and convenience item, our Ram’s big, broad cabin made the miles disappear while we relaxed in two-tone ventilated leather seats, enjoying iPod tunes on a superb, nine-speaker audio system with subwoofer.
