Design of RAM 1500
New technological efficiencies are present on the 2016 RAM 1500. Some of these include: Pulse-width modulation which reduces parasitic electrical load on the alternator as well as connected systems including the cooling fan allowing for improved efficiency with fuel consumption. The new variable displacement compressor differs from a fixed displacement compressor by changing its pumping capacity to meet air-conditioning demands. These changes occur automatically rather than only working in an on/off capacity. The desired cabin temperature is set and the air is regulated by its self. Once the air temperature is reached the efforts of the compressor are reduced to a capacity of maintaining temperature instead of shutting off completely. As a direct result of this the load on the engine is lessened which helps cabin temperature regulation but also saves in the fuel department. The actual blower continuously regulates fan speeds for any driving conditions and helps with optimal performance. There is also a humidity sensor located near the rearview mirror and works with the above described systems to always be on the lookout for humidity being formed on the interior of the windshield. All of this technology runs in tandem to reduce humidity, regulate compressor transitions, reduce cabin noise and increase fuel efficiency. The interior of all 2016 RAM models will have a center console that is newly designed along with Bluetooth capabilities for hands-free driving for all trucks in the model year. Bed lighting is now an available option using bright LEDs illuminating near the rear truck bed corners giving better visibility to your cargo. The Ram 1500 is now offering the Ram 1500 Rebel and Ram 1500 Laramie Limited that came out mid-year 2015 and will be featured going forward.
