Its combination of a well-trimmed cabin, strong powertrains, and a smooth ride make the new 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 a top contender within the full-size pickup segment. Additional highpoints include useful tech features, an excellent eight-speed automatic transmission system, supple ride quality, and quiet and refined drive quality. The Ram 1500 release date should be expected sometime in the middle of 2018, probably in July if recent rumors are to be appreciated.
For 2018, the new truck returns with its excellent handling despite its last full redesign taking place eight years ago. The ride quality is remarkably supple, the infotainment system easy to use and responsive, its cabin materials made of top quality, and a dizzying option list that more than compensates its lack of freshness.
The coil-spring rear suspension is one of the few features that makes the new vehicle distinct thanks to the way it soaks up rough surfaces and reduces the harshness of mundane driving conditions. The 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 towing capacity is perhaps one of the significant downsides available relative to what the competition offers. Heavy duty pickup trucks will probably serve you better if you’re looking for superb towing limits.
New features available on the invigorated truck include a choice of bright exterior color schemes, a tonneau cover, LED bed lights, minor trim tweaks, an upgraded infotainment system, blind-spot monitor with rear-cross traffic alert, and hill start assist.
Inasmuch as we like the new 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 Concept, there are a tone of other trucks in the segment that promise paralleled changes and performance as the 1500 pickup truck. They include the Chevrolet Silverado 2018, the Ford F-150, Nissan Titan XD, GMC Sierra, and Toyota Tundra.
