What are the 2018 Ram 1500 Performance Features?

2018 Ram 1500

With multiple engine options and your choice of rear- or four-wheel drive, the 2018 Ram 1500 performance specs have something for every truck driver from Norwalk to Fairfield. Of course, you probably already know how much Ram truck drivers love their pickups – they’ve inspired the greatest loyalty in their class – but if you need a reason to switch from a Chevy, Ford, or GMC, we have the specs that make it clear which truck comes out on top.

The Numbers You Need to Know

First, your engine options:

  • A 5.7L HEMI V8 engine that offers 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque
  • A 3.0L Ecodiesel V6 engine that provides 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque
  • A 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that offers 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque.

The 2018 Ram 1500 performance specs are guided by a state-of-the-art TorqueFlite transmission – an 8-speed automatic optimized for performance and efficiency. When you need more power or want confidence going off-road, the Ram 1500 performance features have you covered with the available four-wheel drive system.

Finally, the Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension adjusts air springs to best accommodate whatever payload you’ve got in your truck bed to maximize performance and improve overall aerodynamics.
