Full-size are extremely popular in North America, so it isn’t surprise that competition is nowadays tougher than ever. GM recently launched their new-generation models Silverado and Sierra, while on the other side Ford will launch all-new aluminum-body F-150. However, Dodge RAM is still leader in this segment. This full-size truck was originally launched in 1981 and company plans to introduce next-generation model, which will probably come in 2017. Meanwhile, we will see a refreshed version of current model, which will come next year as 2016 RAM 1500. This updated model will come with many changes and most of them will be visual, both outside and inside the truck.
