 What’s New for the 2018 Ram 1500?

Among full-size pickup trucks, the Ram 1500 is a top choice–thanks to efficient output, a high-quality cabin, and outstanding ride quality. Now in its fourth production cycle, the half-ton vehicle doesn’t receive any changes for the 2018 model year. Six models are offered: Tradesman, Express, Lone Star, Big Horn, Sport, and Night. The 2018 Ram 1500 can be configured with two-door Regular and four-door Crew and Quad Cab bodystyles; and 5’7″, 6’4″, and 8′ boxes.

Powering the pickup truck is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which pumps out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The Ram truck’s manufacturer, Chrysler, offers the choice of swapping the V6 with a larger and more powerful 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which churns out 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The engine is joined with an 8-speed automatic transmission with an electronic shifter for smooth gear-shifting. Drivetrains available on the Ram truck consist of a rear-wheel drive for improved weight distribution from front to back and a four-wheel drive for enhanced performance on less-than-smooth driving surfaces. Depending on the cab you choose, the Ram 1500 can seat from two to six people. An auto-dimming rearview mirror for taming headlight glare behind you, a universal transceiver for remote-controlling garage doors, a 7-inch multi-view cluster display, and 10-way power adjustability and power lumbar support on the driver’s seat appear on the Lone Star trim and higher, and there is a center-seat cushion storage compartment on the Lone Star and Big Horn. The upper-level Sport and Night trims have front bucket seats, which can be heated when needed. For entertainment, the 2018 Ram 1500 starts with six-speaker audio with an AM/FM radio tuner and an auxiliary audio input for playing music from mobile devices, and a charging-only USB port. Upgrading to at least the Big Horn adds HD Radio, Uconnect infotainment integration, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for controlling the stereo head unit with your smartphone, a one-year trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio, and an SD flash memory card slot for playing digital media. The Sport and Night are the only models with Premium I Speaker for cleaner and crisper sound. For restraint and cushioning, the 2018 Ram 1500 comes with dual front impact airbags, dual side impact airbags, and dual side curtains. Other base-level standard safety features include electronic stability control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, traction control, a rearview camera, traction control, and a theft-deterrent system that includes engine immobilization. Remote keyless entry, remote vehicle start, and a panic alarm are added on the Big Horn and higher for added security.
