Performance, efficiency, and strength are pillars of the 2018 RAM 1500. This light duty pickup gives a smooth ride through downtown Villa Park with its coil-spring rear suspension. Whether you’re looking for a bare-bones workhorse like the Tradesman, a luxuriously loaded hauler like the top-of-the-line Limited, or a truck ready for an off road adventure like the Rebel, there is a RAM 1500 for you.
RAM trucks include an integrated trailer hitch for a safe and secure connection, with a four- and seven-pin wiring harness in the bumper.
Hill Start Assist
Hill Start Assist detects when your truck is on an incline and maintains brake pressure as you engage the accelerator so you won’t roll backwards.
Trailer Sway Control
Recognizes a swaying trailer and automatically applies individual brakes while reducing engine power, to help eliminate the sway.
Tow With Confidence
Built to haul heavy loads, the RAM 1500 equipped with the Hemi V8 engine has a max towing capacity of 10,620 pounds.
Above Standard Towing Capabilities
The incomparable 2018 RAM 1500 comes with three available engine options, to give you more power over your truck:
Power and efficiency come standard in the 3.6L Pentastar V6
The 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 is one of the most advanced light-duty engines
Leading the lineup in hauling capability is the 5.7L Hemi V8
All three engines are paired with a Torqueflite eight-speed automatic transmission that allows superior acceleration in low gears. The instrument panel-mounted Rotary E-shift provides effortless shifting while the Thermal Management System optimizes fuel efficiency and durability. The 2018 RAM 1500 offers Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension with automatic load leveling designed specifically to improve capability through Addison or Chicago. The adjustable air springs allow the driver to raise and lower the vehicle to one of five ride height settings to maximize performance. Drivers can manually adjust clearance while smart sensors automatically lower the truck at highway speeds to help increase efficiency and reduce drag.
