4 Things You'll Love About the 2018 Ram 1500

 

The 2018 Ram 1500 is packed with features that make it a stand-out vehicle in its class.

Strength and Durability

The 2018 Ram 1500 is built to last. This truck has a high-strength steel frame and has a hydroformed tubular front frame unit and eight ultra-touch cross members. This configuration makes the truck not only durable, but it also offers drivers a smoother, more comfortable ride no matter the terrain.

Dodge is so certain of the vehicle's durability that it comes with a five year or 100,000-mile diesel-powertrain limited warranty. 

Safety

There are so many safety features on the new 2018 Ram 1500. Side-curtain airbags deploy downward and cover the side windows to protect passengers from impacts after a collision. The four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes are designed to help prevent wheel lock if you suddenly brake or are on a slippery surface.

Side impact door beams comes standard in this truck. The beams are designed to absorb impact and direct it away from the passengers. The front of the vehicle also has crumple zones so that the vehicle absorbs the brunt of a collision to keep you and your loved ones safe inside the vehicle.

Power and Performance

The Ram 1500 has three engine options depending on the trim level and how the truck will be used. There's the 3-liter Eco-diesel V6 engine that gives you 240 horsepower and 420 pound-foot of torque. This engine gives drivers a best-in-class 28 miles per gallon highway. 

Another engine option is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine which gives the truck a nice 305 horsepower and 269 pound-foot of torque. This engine has an intelligent thermal management system which keeps the engine cool, in turn providing optimal power and performance.

The third and most powerful engine option is the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine. This engine has MDS technology and gives you a whopping 395 horsepower and 410 pound-food of torque. 

Towing Capabilities

One of the great things about having a pick-up truck is the ability to take everything with you. The 2018 Ram 1500 comes standard with a trailer hitch at the back of every vehicle. The trailer hitch seamlessly connects the trailer with the frame of the truck to give it the safest and most secure connection. 

An available feature of the Ram 1500 is the trailer sway control. This intelligently recognizes when the trailer that is attached to the vehicle is swaying. Brakes are then automatically applied to individual tires and if necessary, reduces the power of the engine to reduce sway.

There are so many more reasons beyond these to love the 2018 Ram 1500. Whether you're looking for a vehicle that keeps you and your family safe no matter what the terrain, something that has great horsepower and is fun to drive, or the ultimate towing vehicle, you get all of that and more with a Ram 1500.
