The new Dodge Ram 1500 Night Edition Crew Cab 4X4 is capable of adjusting its cabin height to conserve fuel and more seamlessly power through rugged terrain.

This feature-heavy vehicle will adjust its height for a variety of situations. First, it can lower with the press of a button on the key fob to make climbing into the cab and easier task. Next, it will automatically lower its height for highway driving to reduce drag and improve aerodynamics. According to Ram, there is a six percent increase in aerodynamics due to this 'Active Air Suspension' tech. For the more adventurous among us, the truck can also raise its suspension while mudding to avoid hitting rocks or for driving through deep puddles.

While many of these adjustments require manual input, Ram is working on a technology that will allow this to happen automatically.
