2018 Ram 1500 New Editions

Fuel Efficient

Luxury Options

The features on the inside of the 2018 Ram 1500 are lavish. The Limited Tungsten Edition gives you leather on the seats and some of the other surfaces, a faux-suede headliner, and wood accents. The Rebel trim is also now available with a leather interior. The first-row bucket seats are amazingly comfortable and offer tons of support. The rotary shifter gives you more storage space and has a metal casing that makes it seem more upscale.

The air suspension on the Ram makes it easier to get in and out because it allows you to lower the truck by two inches. The doors open up to 90 degrees so that it is easy for you to get in the vehicle even though the step up is still high.

The three bed sizes and inside storage space are the same as last year's models but there is now a switch on the outside that allows you to turn on the LED bed lights. The rear seats in the quad and crew cabs will fold down to allow you to have level space while giving you more room underneath for storage.

Modern but Traditional

The Harvest Edition is a new addition specifically for the farmers out there and comes in traditional farm equipment colors like Case IH Red and New Holland Blue. This edition has a ton of chrome, a mesh-like grille, comes with all-terrain tires, and rides an inch higher than normal.
