My AM doesn't come in any worse than it does on any other receiver

Yes. I happened to be driving a different vehicle today and noticed how clear the AM channel was compared to the same channel on my Ram radio.

This wasn't the first time, and it only has poor reception on a couple low powered (relatively close) AM channels that I tune in. It does have good reception on AM stations with more power.

AM reception is crap in my 16 Rebel. I suspect that with the focus on Satellite or whatever other technology they're using to beam the Interweb into our vehicles, they didn't put a lot of concern into the design of the AM antenna. AM reception in my two other vehicles ('13 Challenger and '17 Pilot) is perfect in the same area.

my AM reception on my 2016 1500 is complete garbage - any thoughts on a reasonably cheap solution? New antenna that anyone can recommend?
