The 2018 Ram 1500 Delivers Rugged Performance

What kind of performance does the 2018 Ram 1500 offer? You’ll enjoy the following features out on the jobsite:

  • A class-exclusive Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension evens out your ride even when under heavy loads.

  • An available HEMI V8 roars to life with up to 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque.

  • Tow construction materials, trailers, or boats with up to 10,620 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped.

The Latest in Performance Features


With up to 1,880 pounds in payload capacity with a gas engine, the Ram 1500 is ready to get the job done in Chaska.


The Torqueflite 8-speed automatic transmission gives you the ideal gear for the situation, including great acceleration in low gears.


An available Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension gives you five driver-controlled ride heights to conquer tough terrain and rough trails.

Trailer Sway Control

When you’re hauling a trailer, it needs to stay under control. Luckily, the Ram 1500 will adjust the brakes and engine if it detects swaying.
