The 2016 Ram 1500 is ready to carry the load with class-exclusive available Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension*. This engineering feat delivers five distinctive operational modes, with individual control at all four corners resulting in an overall superior ride, no matter what you’re carrying in the truck bed. The automatic load leveling is designed to maintain a horizontal plane under heavy payloads, and to help improve capability and maintain exceptional performance.
Adjustable air springs allow drivers to raise and lower the vehicle to one of five ride height settings, depending on where you’re working or how you’re playing. In addition, the constant driving profile delivers a proper headlamp-to-road angle for consistently even forward illumination. All of this can be easily controlled with your fingertips using convenient dashboard buttons.
Here are five modes you can take advantage of when you need to move weight down the road:
- TAKING TO THE TRAILS
Off-Road 2 mode provides impressive ground clearance for the path and trail and generous angles for approach, departure and breakover. The difference from normal is +2.0 inches.
- OFF THE BEATEN PATH
Enjoy outstanding ride balance with Off-Road 1 mode, with an extra degree of clearance when off-road scenarios are less severe than those that warrant Off-Road 2 mode. The difference from normal is +1.2 inches front and +0.9 inches rear.
- GETTING AROUND TOWN
Normal Ride Height is the most comfortable balance of ride and handling for everyday driving.
- HIGHWAY DRIVING
At highway speeds, Aero mode automatically lowers the vehicle, reducing aerodynamic drag and “body roll,” and measurably improving fuel efficiency. The difference from normal is -0.6 inches.
- DAILY INS AND OUTS
For convenience and comfort, Entry/Exit mode automatically lowers the vehicle, making it easier to get in and out of your truck, load your bed or hook up your trailer. This mode is manually controlled by the internal button bank or remotely with the key fob. The difference from normal is -2.1 inches front and -1.7 inches rear.
