2018 Ram 1500

Performance. Efficiency. Intelligence. That's strength evolved. And nowhere is it more evident than with the legendary towing and hauling capability of the Ram 1500. Smart engineering such as the available Class-Exclusive Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension or our standard Class-Exclusive TorqueFlite® 8 eight-speed automatic transmission means there isn't much the Ram 1500 can't do.
  
   
   
   
 


 

EXTERIOR

A truck is the epitome of hard work. A sports car is designed to be aerodynamic. Ram Brand Engineers accomplished both capability and performance in one vehicle. The 2018 Ram 1500's refined, bold look honours its history while looking ahead. This striking combination features signature crosshair grilles with modern imprints like the blacked-out grille on the Rebel. Choose from an impressive array of models, and available colour and wheel looks that define you. The Ram 1500's aerodynamic design supports fuel-efficient performance and a quieter ride. This is achieved in part with standard and available features like refined windshield shapes, aero-shaped mirrors, a parabolic front end, aerodynamic wheel-to-wheel side steps and the Active Air grille shutters.



Smart Headlamp Technology
These available 70-mm lamps provide exceptional forward- and spread-light performance. This premium lighting experience is achieved using smart bi-functional technology to create the ideal light pattern for vision ahead and peripherally. The bi-functional design supports these benefits in both high- and low-beam operation.

Light Up Your Cargo Bed
Available LED box lighting makes loading and unloading in the dark easier and safer. This feature illuminates the rear area of the cargo bed, eliminating the need to adjust the tonneau cover. New for 2018 is a cargo bed light button. Once it's pressed, the box lighting will stay on for 10 minutes.


 

INTERIOR

The 2018 Ram 1500 offers a stunning lineup of luxurious interiors. The Laramie Longhorn's award-winning Old West-inspired cabin features real leather throughout, while the Laramie Limited sports an all-black full-leather interior. Launching this year is the new Limited Tungsten Edition, the most luxurious Ram ever. Highlights include a Segment-First Light Greystone suede headliner (late availability), Light Frost/Indigo Blue Natura Plus premium leather seats and real wood components throughout the cabin. The Ram 1500 cabin is packed with standard and available smart features for added comfort and convenience. The integrated switchbank provides access to a host of comfort features. Two sets of position settings for driver's seat, exterior mirrors and radio station presets can be stored with available memory. And the available Keyless Enter 'n Go with Proximity Entry allows for ease of access by simply touching the door handle.



Get Individual Climate Control
The available dual-zone temperature control respects individual choice and comfort. It automatically maintains the driver's and front passenger's preferred temperatures.

Electronic Rotary Dial Shifter
The driver-focused cockpit features a Class-Exclusive electronic rotary dial shifter. Ergonomically located on the centre console for ease of gear changing, it also saves space by eliminating the traditional shift lever. The rotary dial shifter comes standard with the Segment-First TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission.

 

PERFORMACE

All Ram 1500 models are built to haul heavy loads and deliver confident towing. For 2018, your Ram 1500 can tow up to 10,640 lb (4,826 kg) and haul a payload of up to 1,880 lb (853 kg). This superior performance is supported by the standard 4- and 7-pin wiring harness and available integrated Class IV hitch receiver and Trailer Brake Control system. No other pickup in the half-ton class offers multi-link coil-spring rear suspension. Standard on every 2018 Ram 1500, it delivers lateral stiffness and vehicle control that the competition just can't match. The ride quality is so good, it's the preferred spring configuration for rail cars.

 
Active-Level™ Four-Corner Suspension
This Class-Exclusive system delivers greater control when towing, hauling and off-roading. Standard on the Rebel®, and available on several other trim levels, Active-Level™ Four-Corner Air Suspension performs 2 important functions.
1. It maintains a steady level regardless of load, to maintain a constant driving profile and ideal headlamp-to-road angle.
2. It raises or lowers the vehicle depending on the need with 5 available modes for the driver to choose from.


 
4-Wheel-Drive TechnologyThe 2018 Ram 1500 features 2 shift-on-the-fly, part-time 4-wheel drive systems.
* The 4-HI setting locks both drive shafts for extra grip and pulling power on slippery, wet and loose terrain.
* The 4-LO setting has a 2.64:1 gear reduction ratio for increased power and grip to climb over difficult obstacles.

SAFETY

The Ram 1500 is equipped with some of the most advanced safety and security technology available. With dynamic crumple zones, side-impact door beams and an advanced airbag system, your Ram truck is engineered to help protect your most precious cargo.

ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM (ABS)
This four-channel system monitors each wheel's speed and allows backup braking should one of the two braking circuits be compromised.
TRACTION CONTROL
Integrated with the ABS, Traction Control regulates wheelspin at all speeds. Impending wheel-slip during acceleration results in throttle modifications to reduce torque; in extreme situations it will selectively apply brakes to maintain control. It can be turned off with a console-mounted button.
READY ALERT BRAKING
The system senses when the driver's foot is lifted from the accelerator, and then instantly applies a slight brake force to ensure brake pads and discs are correctly lined up should a sudden stop be necessary.
TRAILER SWAY CONTROL
This system detects trailer sway and will automatically compensate for it by applying selective brake pressure on the tow vehicle's opposite side to counteract and reduce the sway.
ELECTRONIC ROLL MITIGATION (ERM)
Operational only during a severe or an evasive driving manoeuvre, this system anticipates wheel lift and applies the appropriate brake (or reduces engine power) to reduce lift.
ELECTRONIC BRAKE-FORCE DISTRIBUTION
This system regulates braking pressure from front to rear to minimize stopping distances for ideal control.
RAIN BRAKE SUPPORT
When the windshield wipers are activated, this standard system pulses the brake pads closer to the spinning rotors, helping to keep the rotors and pads dry to help enable the shortest stopping distance.
HYDRAULIC BOOST COMPENSATION
Should a failure occur in the vacuum brake booster or any related line (e.g., a rupture from tough off-roading), the brake controller will run the ABS pump and the brakes will perform as normal until the failure is serviced.
HILL START ASSIST
On hills or inclines, the vehicle is held stationary for two seconds after the brakes have been released to help prevent rollback.
