Ram 1500 Prepares For 2018 With More Luxury Than Ever

Like the rest of FCA’s huge fleet of vehicles, the Ram 1500 pickup truck has been freshened up for 2018, welcoming a new edition.

Dubbed the Tungsten Edition and first detailed a couple of months ago, the model acts as the most luxurious of all Ram 1500s. It boasts a tungsten-tone chrome grille, black headlight surrounds and body-colored exterior trim. Inside, the Tungsten Edition has two-tone leather, wood trim, a suede headliner and custom carpets.

As for the rest of the 2018 Ram 1500 range, all models adopt 8.4-inch infotainment systems with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Additionally, Sirius Guardian with SOS Call, Roadside Assistance, Remote Services, Send and Go and Vehicle finder are standard, alongside a reverse camera and a Fleet Telematics Module for vehicle tracking.

In terms of engines, there’s a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 with 240 hp and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 providing 305 hp and 269 lb-ft (364 Nm) and a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 complete with 395 hp and 410 lb-ft (555 Nm) of twisting force.

2018 Ram 1500 models now consist of the Tradesman, Express, SLT, HFE, Big Horn/Lone Star, Lone Star Silver, Sport, Night, Rebel, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, Laramie Limited and Limited Tungsten.

Spoiled for choice is an understatement.

    The design has aged well, but Ram had been left in the dust by the competition. This generation is now a decade old with nothing but editions for “updates”.

      The interiors on the two Limited models look good and the materials appear to be high quality. The only that doesn’t fit is the random tribal tattoo looking stitching on the doors and center console.
