Ram 1500 Review Highlights

The Car Connection

“A huge lineup with lots of available options ensures that there’s not a strong likelihood of finding two matching 2018 Ram 1500s on a dealer’s lot.”

Car and Driver

“From tradesman tool to flashy rolling office, this iconic Ram pickup has a platter of options to feed everyone.”

Automotive Fleet

“Exterior and interior upgrades for the Ram 1500 include the luxurious Limited Tungsten edition, Sport model appearance upgrade, and factory leather interior option for Rebel models."

Car Preview

“The 2018 Ram 1500 is still the best big pickup for ride, handling, and comfort.” 

Superb Performance and Tech

One area that reviewers are particularly happy with is the Ram 1500’s diesel V6 engine. As The Car Connection says, “It’s a sweet engine with 240 hp backed up by 420 lb-ft available at just 2,000 rpm.” The diesel engine offers huge torque and a towing capacity of 9,000 pounds, and though it costs more than the base trim V6, you’ll save money on fuel costs. Though Ram trucks have always been known for their performance, the new Ram 1500 is packed with high tech features. The Car Connection was particularly excited, writing “its high degree of customizability, and a terrific available infotainment system that now includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.” All in all, available features like power-adjustable pedals and an 8.4-inch touchscreen make the Ram 1500 better than ever.
