2017 Ram 1500 Calgary AB
It’s clear that for the top performance in the pickup world, you can’t go wrong with either the 2017 Ram 1500 in Calgary AB or the 2017 Toyota Tundra. If you need to tow and haul the essentials on the job, both can do so with some added room to spare, though the Ram 1500 model (in all available trim levels) can handle much more than the Tundra is able to. That’s not the only aspect in which the 1500 holds an upper hand; it also achieves much greater fuel efficiency than that of the Tundra, in effect making it one of Canada’s most efficient pickups and vehicles in general. Stepping inside, it offers an astounding mix of comfort and connectivity that is rarely seen in a truck. As you relax on stitched leather seating you can ride with the assurance that your life is within reach; this is because of a Uconnect® 8.4 interface that puts communication, navigation and media streaming at your fingertips. Add that to a host of safety/driver assistance features and the Ram 1500 provides a more intuitive and comprehensive driving experience than most other pickups are equipped to offer.
