 What's New for the 2018 Ram 1500?

This year's Ram has expanded its trims to encompass the daily farmer and the luxury lover. The 2018 Ram 1500 now has a special Harvest edition in colors familiar to farmers. These include the distinctive red of the Case IH farm equipment and the equally recognizable blue of New Holland farm equipment. These models have a complete touchscreen system with the latest in smartphone integration. For Android phone users, Google Android Auto erases many of the lines between your phone and car systems. Apple CarPlay does the same for your iPhone. Farmers will also appreciate the WiFi connectivity, especially when they are in a pasture far from internet access. On the road, these high-powered machines can tow more and haul more to do everything a farmer could need. The new Limited Tungsten model takes the fine features of a top trim and adds more fashion sense. The exterior is dressed up, and the interior has fine leather and real metal trim. It pampers you with ventilated and heated seats. Like the Harvest edition, the Limited Tungsten puts the entire UConnect world at your fingertips. All Ram trucks have special cabins with higher quality materials than most shoppers expect from a basic work vehicle. This has been a source of pride for the truckmaker and a source of praise from critics. Another fine aspect is the quiet. Each cabin has been crafted to keep noise out, making the ride more enjoyable. Passenger care is also emphasized in this truck's ride quality. Utilizing a unique five-link coil spring rear suspension, Ram greatly reduces the bounce of truck travel.

Ram engines continue to evolve toward more capability and efficiency. The most affordable is a high-powered V6. Active grille shutters help maximize its effectiveness. If that's not enough power for your daily work, there is a HEMI V8 with 395 horses under the hood. This model cranks out 410 lb.-ft. of torque for ample power, even when your truck has a heavy payload or is pulling a big trailer. Shoppers also like having the choice of the exclusive turbo diesel. It cranks out 420 lb.-ft. of torque, making it on par with a V8. In another exclusive, Ram remains the only truckmaker with an air suspension. This system can automatically level the bed using all four corners. The result is a more stable load for a safer ride. Other uses include higher ground clearance for busy worksites or trail rides, a lower height for loading and unloading, and a lower height for a more aerodynamic high-speed drive.
