I purchased a 2018 Ram Big Horn. What I love about it the most is, the comfort. With this much power and it drives so smooth. It’s fantastic! Always felt like you get more bang for your buck with a Ram.

Absolutely love it.

2018 RAM 1500 Overview

The Ram 1500 competes against the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra in the light-duty, full-size pickup truck market and offers unique features like an available RamBox cargo management system and four-corner air suspension. The heavy-duty Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks are covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.

The 1500 is available in three body styles (regular cab, quad cab and crew cab) and with three cargo box lengths (from 5 feet 7 inches to 8 feet). It's offered with a choice of gas V-6 or V-8 power or a turbo-diesel V-6.

The available 8.4-inch multimedia system now has a higher-resolution touchscreen with pinch-to-zoom functionality, incorporates HD Radio and available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.
