2018 Ram 1500

It looks like legendary truck maker will make some major changes on 2018 Ram 1500, in order to finally catch up with F-150 and other full-size light-duty trucks. So far, we have seen many versions of this truck but current model is a little bit outdated. It came in 2009, while main rivals are just few years old. Because of that, Dodge desperately needs some changes in order to stay competitive. According to the latest reports, we will see big changes late next year, when 2018 Ram 1500 should come. We expect to see many new things, but it is still unclear will this be a complete redesign or just some major update.

It is for sure that 2018 Ram 1500 will feature many new things. However, we still don’t what are exact plans of the company. We could see just another major update which will include some visual changes and similar things, but we hope that this time it is about complete redesign. We believe that this redesign could bring plenty of significant improvements. First of all, we should see a completely new platform, which will include use of many advanced technologies and design solutions. For example, we expect use of some lightweight materials, which will provide much better performances compared to current model. Also, we will see completely new visual appearance, but it is still hard to predict how exactly new model could like.

Other possibility is update of current generation. In this case, we will not see so many changes. Most of new things will be about visual appearance. We could see some tweaks at the front, while base shape of the truck will remain the same. Inside, we could see some smaller tweaks and maybe some new features in offer, but nothing more than that.

Current model is available in three variants, when it comes to powertrain. The 2018 Ram 1500 should continue in the same way, but we expect improvement in terms of power, economy and overall efficiency. Base engine will be a 3.6 liter V6, which outputs 305 horses in current version. There is also a V8 options, with 5.7 liter engine under the hood. Finally, there is a diesel variant. This model came two years ago and features a 3.0 liter V6 engine, which is good for about 240 horses and 420 pound-feet of torque.
