2018 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty redesign
The exterior design of this model will be very attractive and we can expect some little improvements from the outside. First of all, the general appearance of this model is very similar to current year model, probably will have the same dimensions as the current model. But of course, we can expect the addition of some new details on the body. The front fascia is especially appealing and it will be very muscular, and it looks a bit lower than we used to. The front grille can be seen a bit below camouflage, it will look quite amazing with the addition of chrome material with a small logo in the middle.
The new Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 2018 headlights will be redesigned and the LED system will power it. The rear side will probably remain the same as before, but this is not official yet. According to Company, we can expect six trim levels including Laramie, Big Horn, SLT, Ram Tradesman, Laramie Longhorn and Outdoorsman. At the sides, this model will ride on 17 and 18-inch aluminum wheels.
Some specifications from curent model:
– Length: 230.4 in.
– Width: 79.4 in.
– Wheelbase: 140.5 in.
– Cargo volume: 74.7 ft³
– Curb weight: 7039 lb.
– Towing Capacity: 17,600 lbs.
Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 2018 Interior design
The interior design of the resulting 2018 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty will be very spacious and importantly very comfortable. We can expect new materials, including new and high-quality leather. All seats are very adjustable, and passengers will definitely enjoy the pleasant ride. Also, we can expect new update information systems with the same 8.4-inch touchscreen. Some of the available interior features should include a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, six-speaker premium sound system, modern air condition, cruise control, and many others.
Beneath the hood, this model could be powered by a Cummins I-6 diesel engine with a displacement of 6.7L, as the current Ram. This engine generates 350 horsepower as well as 660 lb.ft of torque with manual transmission(6-speed). Automatic with 6-speed have 370 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. The power from this engine will be routed to rear wheels. We heard from reliable source that horsepower should remain the same, but torque will be higher, more than 900 lb-ft, as our source claim.
When it comes to transmissions system, it should remain the same, the engine will probably be mated to a 6-speed automatic and manual transmission system. All six trims will use the same engine.
Old 6.4-liter HEMI V8 and 5.7L HEMI V8 will stay in the offer, as soon as wee find out more information, we will post latest updates.
