2018 Model Year Ram Changes
All of the changes for Ram for the 2018 model year: Ram pickup adds Tungsten Edition ultra luxury model. Bookmark this page to keep up with subsequent changes!
Pickup manufacturer love special editions and the hottest trend now is making ever more luxurious models. (Not luxury nameplate pickups, Lincoln killed those forever with the Blackwood and Mark LT.)
Limited Tungsten Edition will be the highest trim level. Tungsten? Ford already has platinum, so Ram figured that was out. Gold and Silver are passé and obviously less valuable than platinum. Tungsten?! It has the highest melting point of all metals... never mind, this isn't getting us anywhere.
The Harvest Edition is a special package and trim made specially for farmers. It comes in two exclusive retro colors: Case IH Red and New Holland Blue, meant to evoke classic tractors and farm trucks. Included farm essentials are: "black tubular side steps, a durable spray-in bedliner, fold-out bumper step and mud flaps, rubber floor mats, skid plates and tow hooks" for 4x4 models.
New radios are available with 4G LTE internet, improved touch interfaces, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A new Sirius satellite powered telematics, "Sirius Guardian with SOS, Assist, Remote Services, Send and Go and Vehicle Finder," is offered.
A backup camera is standard on all models and trims.
Maximum torque quietly sneaks up to 930 pound-feet on the Ram 3500 with the optional high-output Cummins diesel and automatic transmission.
This tiny Fiat transplant now has a standard backup camera and bluetooth. A spare tire still isn't standard, but now a full-size spare is optional, for companies that can't wait for roadside assistance.
The full-size ProMaster is still the only unibody front-wheel-drive full-size cargo van. For 2018 a backup camera is standard on all models, as well as Bluetooth and voice control.
