Ram, GM, & Ford Trucks' War is ON in 2018 | Toronto, Mississauga
Game on: the war between Ford, Ram and GM in the pickup sector continues in 2018, and we've got the Ram 1500 contender right here. Brand loyalty is fierce in this category, but the new Rams are positioned for victory. See highways in Toronto and Mississauga for proof: Ram 1500s abound, and for good reason. The current-generation 2018 Ram 1500 fires on a 3.0-liter V-6 diesel engine that gets up to 29 mpg with an aerodynamics package. The Ram's 3.6-liter V-6 engine scores 25 mpg highway. Both standard Ram models come with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Lift up the hood on a new Ram 1500 and find an upgraded engine that rocks a 48-volt mild-hybrid belt-start generator system. Translation: even better fuel economy. Suspension system upgrades have been made and the new-generation Rams weigh less on the scale. Ram drivers will have a larger, redesigned crew cab kitted out with the latest version of the Uconnect infotainment system. Trucks are gaining sophistication with every year of production and Ram is invested in a high-performance pickup that also looks great.
The current DS Ram 1500 will continue to roll off the production line for another year. The next-generation models will be built at a revived plant in Sterling Heights, Mich., in suburban Detroit. In the fourth quarter of 2018, FCA begins building the Scrambler, a Wrangler-based pickup. You heard that right: Jeep is jumping back into the pickup arena, complete with the off-road suspension system the Wrangler is known for. Things are heating up nicely on the pickup battlefield.
