On the Road
- Though it is a pickup truck but it does not make any sound that would raise eyebrows of the outsiders. The engine is completely silent while idle and its odor free too unlike some pickups. The good thing is that its exhaust note is silent too.
- When Ram 1500 is in slow speed with some light load, it may produce a soft metallic patter under the hood but it is so quiet that it will not come into notice. It is almost impossible to tell that you are traveling on diesel.
