New Ram Truck vs Old Ram Truck
When you need a pickup and you’ve decided on a Ram, the next step is to determine whether a new or used Ram truck is right for you. There are obviously advantages and disadvantages to both, and so we want to help equip you with the right information to help you make the decision based on which areas are most important to you.
One of the key differences between the older Ram trucks (which, for the purpose of this comparison, are those made on or before the model year 2012) and the newer models is the transmission. The new Ram has an 8-speed automatic transmission, which helps greatly with those fuel economy numbers. Speaking of which, that’s another clear advantage of the newer models: the gas mileage is better. The new Ram also offers a marginally more powerful engine.
