Why Buy the 2018 RAM 1500
In the hallowed full-size pickup class, the RAM 1500 has always stood out because of its solid fit and finish, all-weather capability, and excellent ride quality. Around since 1981, the truck is now in its fourth generation of production with the 2018 model year. There are 12 trims available, which are, in ascending order: Tradesman, Express, Lone Star, Lone Star Silver, Harvest, Big Horn, Sport, Night, Laramie, Rebel, Laramie Longhorn®, and Limited.
Exterior – Reasons Why Buy the 1500
Possessing two doors, the Regular Cab comes with a 6-feet 4-inch or 8-feet bed. The Quad Cab and Crew Cab have four doors-with the former attached to a 6-feet 4-inch bed and the latter with the choice between a 5-feet 7-inch bed and a 6-feet 4-inch bed. Standard exterior features include halogen quad headlights, which can automatically turn on or off depending on the amount of light outside; incandescent taillights; power heated mirrors with manual foldability; and 17-inch steel wheels. Upper-level trim configurations might have additions or enhancements such as fog lights, a dual rear exhaust system, power fold-away ability on the side mirrors, and larger alloy wheels (which can be 17, 20, or 22 inches).

Interior space varies depending on the cab of choice. There are three of them. The Regular Cab has a single row of seats to accommodate up to three passengers, with a passenger volume of 62.8 cubic feet. The other two body styles-the Quad Cab and Crew Cab-have two rows of seats for accommodating up to six people. However, the Crew Cab is larger; it has a passenger volume of 125.3 cubic feet, compared with the Quad Cab’s passenger volume of 116.6 cubic feet. For infotainment, there’s a six-speaker audio system with AM/FM radio and a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack for connecting mobile devices and playing digital media from them.
Depending on how you configure your truck, you can get additions or enhancements such as leather seat trim, 10-way power adjustment and power lumbar support on the driver’s seat, heated or cooled seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a garage-door opener, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone-based control, Bluetooth® wireless connectivity for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, a GPS navigation system, a complimentary one-year SiriusXM® satellite radio subscription, an SD memory card slot for playing flash memory-based digital media, and Uconnect® infotainment integration supported by a 5- or 8.4-inch touchscreen.
Mechanical / Powertrain – Request More Information
Powering the RAM 1500 is the popular 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which generates 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. However, you can choose the larger and more powerful 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 instead; this workhorse provides 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The engine is attached to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which comes with an electronic shifter to enable smooth gear shifting. Drivetrain choices consist of a rear-wheel drivetrain for a more balanced weight distribution from front to back; and a four-wheel-drive system for enhanced traction and driving performance on slippery or less-than-smooth surfaces. To cushion occupants from road turbulence, there’s a robust suspension that consists of an upper-and-lower A-arm front design and a five-link rear design with front and rear heavy-duty shock absorbers and stabilizer bars. The power rack-and-pinion steering helps provide precise turning and cornering. And large disc brakes on all wheels ensure that you come to a complete stop quickly.
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 all seats for head protection. Other standard safety features include electronic vehicle stability control to keep you on the intended driving path, a rearview camera for flashing a monitoring video image when driving in reverse, traction control to maximize tire grip on the road, speed control for setting and maintaining a desired speed, and an anti-theft system that includes engine immobilization. Upper-level additions or enhancements on the vehicle include rear park assist to bolster the functionality of the rearview camera and remote keyless entry and a panic alarm to make for a more robust system.
