The Dodge Ram is a modern classic vehicle, one that’s proved to be enduringly popular. There’s no better sign of the car buying public’s love of the Ram than the half a million Ram 1500s sold in 2016, which made it the third-best-selling lightweight truck and third-best-selling vehicle overall for that year.
The Ram 1500 is so popular, in fact, that in 2016 it outsold the Toyota Camry, which often receives acclaim for being the best-selling car in the world. Given how popular the Dodge Ram 1500 is, it’s fair to say that the 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 will be another popular vehicle beloved by many, many people.
If you’re wondering what makes the Dodge Ram 1500 such a popular vehicle, our Bloomington RAM dealership has an in-depth breakdown of everything that makes it special and worth your money.
Lightweight Truck with a Diesel Engine
The first thing that sticks out about the 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 is the available diesel engine. The Dodge Ram is the only lightweight truck line that gives drivers the option to have a diesel engine, which makes it one of the most popular choices for truck aficionados. That’s because diesel engines offer superior towing power over the standard gasoline engine, which makes the 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 a natural choice for someone looking for a hardy, powerful lightweight truck.
Active-Level Air Suspension
Another great feature of the 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 is the Ram’s unique Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension. This feature allows for automatic load leveling, which lowers the truck’s frame at highway speeds to decrease air resistance and increase performance efficiency. This feature comes standard on the Rebel and Limited Crew Cab models; most of the other Ram 1500 models can be upgraded to include it, as well.
Updates for 2018
While the base model for the Dodge Ram 1500 has not been upgraded much from the previous version, Dodge has introduced several new editions of their star vehicle that are designed for drivers with specific needs. The first of these is the 2018 Ram 1500 Harvest Edition, which has been designed specifically for people who work in the agriculture industry.
The Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport, another one of the upgraded versions for 2018, is available with 4×2 and 4×4 versions and comes with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine and the short body crew cab. It’s also limited to just 2,000 models for sale in the U.S., so, if you’re interested in getting one, you better get moving as soon as possible.
Last, there’s also the Limited Tungsten Edition, which is the Ram 1500 for drivers looking for a more luxurious version of the classic Ram vehicle.
