Body and bed combinations for the 2007 Dodge Ram remain the same as they were for 2006, with Reg Cabs available in both short and long bed versions, Quad Cabs available in long bed and extra long bed versions, and Mega Cabs available with extra long beds only. Mega Cabs continue to offer the most rear leg room of any pickup on the market.
Engine options are likewise similar to the previous year, with a 3.7L V6 standard on Regular and Quad Cab pickups, and a 4.7L V8 (in both gas and flex fuel guises) and 5.7L Hemi optional. The Hemi V8 is the only available engine on Mega Cabs, and it now features multi-displacement technology that switches off cylinders to provide fuel economy at cruising speeds. When using all cylinders, the Hemi produces 345 hp and 375 lb-feet of torque, which brings the Dodge's towing capacity to 7600 lbs.
Stopping ability comes in the form of rear anti-lock brakes. Optional electronic stability control adds four-wheel anti-lock brakes.
Vinyl seat trim can be upgraded to a new stain- and odor-resistant fabric on the base ST trim levels. Bucket seats are a no-cost option on the SLT trim, and leather can be had for an additional $910 over the standard Yes Essentials cloth. Laramie trim comes standard with leather and adjustable pedals. For 2007, Laramie trim is no longer available on Regular Cabs.
Last year's Dodge Ram was a complete redesign and the 2007 1500 remains largely unchanged. New standard features include "Yes Essentials" stain-resistant seat fabric and power accessory delay, while new optional equipment includes electronic stability program and Sirius satellite radio. The Regular Cab body style is no longer available in Laramie trim and the base Ram's MSRP is a modest $120 higher than it was in 2006.
