The 2018 Dodge Ram is a great truck on the rise. The model has leapfrogged some well-known truck brands to become a luxury truck which roams nearly in every continent. The vehicle has been heavily revised for the 2018 model and it comes with a new interior and exterior design.
The outside exterior design of this truck has experienced a lot of changes. Despite having a ride height of 10 inches as well as a bolstered body structure, the biggest changes to come with this luxury truck are the aesthetics.
Its front end has been revamped completely with the RAM adorned grills which have replaced the stock unit cross-hair design. The truck now looks more modern and aggressive. In addition, it has been accentuated by the new projector headlights, LED fog lamps and the twin-snorkel aluminum hood.
Moving backwards, there are the 17-inches aluminum alloys and flat black badges. The main highlight of its rear view is the powder coated bumpers.
The interior design has also been updated with slight touches. The truck has an all-black cabin which is covered in leather. The cabin also has a Gray stone leather piping along the seats which gives the seats a more attractive outline. The seatback pockets have been given the Longhorn treatment using the leather flaps. The interior design also features unique buckles which change up the truck’s appearance. The accent on its steering wheel has also received a thick coat of gloss for protection purposes.
The gauge cluster of this truck has also been updated and it features a black background with the Liquid Graphite-faced gauges. Ram says that this design has been inspired by the modish watches. The interior lighting brings out an upscale ambiance at night. Additionally, there are LED lights in its door handles, lower map pockets and foot wells which add that luxury feel when driving this truck.
Engine and performance
The 2018 Dodge Ram has two engine options: the standard 5.7-liters HEMI V-8 and the optional 3.0-liters EcoDiesel V-6. Both engines offer a great amount of power. The HEMI engine is the best performer, putting down 410 ound-feet of torque and 395 horsepower. The EcoDiesel engine on the other hand, offers a respectable 420 pounds-feet of torque and 240 horses. Both engines have been mated to the ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic transmission. The Heavy Duty versions of the truck will also make use of these available engines (the 5.7-liters HEMI V-8 and the larger 6.4-liters HEMI V-8 engine)
The truck has unique features which have been specifically designed for the user protection including the extensive protection system.
The truck also has Antilock Braking System that maintains driver control and also prevents wheels lock-up.
Furthermore, there’s the Eyesight drivers assist technology that monitors the movement of traffic and als ptimizes cruise control.
