Why Buy the 2018 RAM 1500
With an outstanding ride quality, supreme off-road capability, and super-sturdy construction, it is no wonder than the RAM 1500 remains one of the top full-size pickup trucks available-four decades into its existence. With the 2018 model year, there are no major updates. However, the wide range of body style configurations is still in place, as well as a large number of trims, of which there are twelve: Tradesman, Express, Lone Star, Lone Star Silver, Harvest, Big Horn, Sport, Night, Laramie, Rebel, Laramie Longhorn®, and Limited.
Exterior – Reasons Why Buy the 1500
The Regular Cab is designed as a two-door ride with a 6-feet 4-inch or 8-feet bed. The Quad Cab and Crew Cab have four doors. However, while the Quad Cab comes with a 6-feet 4-inch bed, the Crew Cab offers the choice between a 5-feet 7-inch bed and a 6-feet 4-inch bed. Standard exterior features of this RAM pickup truck include halogen quad headlights, which can automatically turn on or off depending on the amount of outdoor light; incandescent taillights; power heated manually foldable mirrors, and 17-inch steel wheels. Upper-level trims are more likely to have features like fog lamps, power fold-away ability on the side mirrors, a dual rear exhaust system, and 17/20/22-inch alloy wheels.

Interior space on this truck is determined by the type of cab model you choose. There are three body styles: Regular Cab, Quad Cab, and Crew Cab. The Regular Cab has one row of seats to accommodate up to three passengers, and the passenger volume is measured at 62.8 cubic feet. By comparison, the Quad Cab and Crew Cab have two rows of seats for accommodating up to six occupants. However, the Crew Cab is larger, with a passenger volume of 125.3 cubic feet; the Quad Cab offers 116.6 cubic feet. Entertainment on the truck is provided by a six-speaker audio system with an AM/FM radio tuner and a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack for connecting mobile devices.
Depending on how you configure your truck, you can get additions or enhancements such as leather upholstery, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, 10-way power adjustment and power lumbar support on the driver’s seat, a garage-door opener, heated or ventilated seats, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for controlling infotainment features with your smartphone, Bluetooth® wireless connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, GPS navigation, a complimentary one-year SiriusXM® satellite radio subscription, an SD memory card slot for playing flash memory-saved digital media, and a 5- or 8.4-inch touchscreen display for supporting Uconnect® infotainment integration.
Mechanical / Powertrain – Request More Information
Powering the RAM truck is the popular 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which provides 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. However, the larger and more powerful 5.7-liter HEMI® V8, which produces 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, is available. Whether you stick with the V6 or opt for the V8, the truck gets an 8-speed automatic transmission, which includes an electronic shifter to enable smooth gear shifting. There’s the option of a rear-wheel drivetrain for improved weight distribution from front to back; and a four-wheel-drive system for enhanced performance on any type of driving surface. The suspension system on the truck consists of an upper-and-lower A-arm front suspension and a five-link rear suspension with front and rear heavy-duty shock absorbers and stabilizer bars, thus ensuring a smooth drive on rocky terrain. The power rack-and-pinion steering helps provide precise turning and cornering. And large disc brakes on all wheels keep stopping short.
Safety – Why Buy with Safety Features
For restraint and cushioning in the event of a crash, the 2018 model comes with dual front impact airbags, which face the driver and front passenger; dual side impact airbags installed on the front seats; and a pair of side curtains that flank the seats for head protection. Other standard safety features on the truck include speed control for setting and maintaining a desired speed, electronic vehicle stability control to keep you on the intended driving path, traction control to maximize tire grip on the road, a rearview camera for flashing a monitoring video image when driving in reverse, and a theft-deterrent system that includes engine immobilization. Upper-level additions or enhancements include rear park assist to bolster the functionality of the rearview camera and remote keyless entry and a panic alarm to beef up the theft-deterrent system.
