Pickup trucks are not what they used to be, which is a good thing. These useful workhorses have come a long way in terms of comfort and civility. There is a reason pickups are the top-selling vehicles in the United States. For many, the 2023 Ram 1500 is the ideal tool for work, family life, and play. 

Well-Equipped Interior

Inside the top-tier 2023 Ram 1500 Limited trim, the seats feature a quilted leather-face and are power operated for both front passengers. In addition, the front and outboard rear seats are ventilated and heated. The interior design is practical, refined but not excessively opulent. It is pleasing to the eye, with subtle touches like the jeweled rotary shifter and suede headliner. 

The most luxurious trim level of the Ram 1500 is exclusively available with the crew cab body configuration, which provides plenty of space inside the cabin. For example, up front, passengers receive 40.9 inches of headroom and 40.9 inches of legroom. It is even roomier in the back, with 39.8 inches of headroom and a generous 45.2 inches of legroom. Indeed, the interior is as immense as the dimensions make it sound. The cliché of driving a living room is true in this case. There is also an ample amount of storage, with a massive, customizable center console, dual glove boxes, and even more storage in the rear.

Worthy of Accolades

Now, the pickup truck’s superior comfort is being recognized to a higher degree. J.D. Power’s annual Initial Quality Study measures the number of consumer-reported problems per 100 vehicles (PP100) in the first 90 days of ownership. Lower PP100 scores are better. The study was based on survey responses from 93,380 vehicle purchasers and lessees, occurring between February to May of 2023. That said, the Ram 1500 was acknowledged by J.D. Power for having the best seat quality. The Ram 1500 earned the top score of 5.4.

Exterior Capability

The utility and storage capability of the truck continues with the exterior. The upscale trim has the five-foot, seven-inch regular bed configuration, which benefits its 53.9 cubic feet of cargo capacity. Of note, flanking the sides of the bed is the RamBox storage system, consisting of a pair of lockable, watertight cargo compartments. These permit drivers to keep all their outdoor equipment, like baseball gear and folding cars, secure and out of sight in one of the boxes. The other box can hold drinks, snacks, and excess water during lengthy road trips.

The bed itself features the optional, watertight tri-fold cover, which is an invaluable resource during heavy rainstorms. Moreover, accessing duffel bags and luggage is a simple task courtesy of the multi-function tailgate. It can lower like a traditional tailgate or open as a pair of Dutch doors. While on the topic of exterior options, also included in the 2023 Ram 1500 are power-operated, retractable running boards, four adjustable Mopar cargo tie-down hooks, a full tow package, pick-up box lighting, and a Mopar spray-in bedliner. 

The Ram 1500 also has sound insulation materials to provide a quieter cabin. The 5.7-liter V-8 engine has a boisterous edge, but rather than being a nuisance, it gives the truck presence and makes it feel more powerful than it is.
