2018 Ram 1500 at Pearson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram

The light-duty pickup truck segment still cannot compete with the Ram 1500, especially in its 2018 model year. This truck drives smoothly, has a class-exclusive coil-spring rear suspension, and you can even replace that already amazing suspension with a self-leveling air suspension. The powertrain options also stand out, with an incredibly efficient V6 engine coming standard, and V8 powertrains available with higher trims. New for the 2018 model year is a Limited Tungsten edition which falls on the premium side and a more middle-ground Harvest edition. The Rebel model is gaining the ability to add a leather interior, and all Ram 1500 now has an even more functional 8.4-inch infotainment system, as well as a standard rearview camera.

What are the different customization options available with the Ram 1500?

The number of different options available with the Ram 1500 is almost staggering, with eleven different trim levels, three engines, multiple body styles, and even more bed lengths. The Tradesman is the base option, giving you Class IV hitch receiver, cruise control, and a spray-in bed liner. The Express trim is like the Tradesman, but does not have the hitch or bed liner, and instead has body-colored exterior trim, 20-inch wheels, and carpeting. The Harvest trim offers you a unique chrome grille, chrome bumpers, skid plates, tow hooks, black tubular side steps, all-terrain tires, and higher ground clearance. The most premium trim out of the eleven is the Limited, coming with the standard V8 engine, stitched leather upholstery, a self-leveling air suspension, automatic high beams, automatic windshield wipers, side-step bars, and monotone paint schemes. After you have chosen your trim, you also have to consider the body style and bed length. The regular cab can seat three people, and you can choose the standard bed or the extended bed. Seating six, the Quad Cab comes with the standard bed. Finally, the crew cab has more legroom and can come with the short bed, or the standard bed.
