Smoother Ride
The only way to achieve high towing and payload ratings is with heavy-duty suspensions and components, which can lead to a rough, noisy ride when a truck is unladen. To improve both the ride and quietness in all conditions, Ram engineers started with a new 98.5 percent high-strength steel frame for improved torsional rigidity, and then added new suspension tuning that includes Frequency Response Damping shocks, progressive springs and re-engineered bushings. Ram’s rear air suspension now includes a driver-activated Bed-lowering Mode, Normal/Payload Mode and Trailer-Tow Mode. Braking upgrades include new calipers, booster and master cylinder for improved brake feel.
