The news about the new 2018 Dodge RAM 2500 getting some new changes and updates isn’t exactly something surprising or shocking. In fact, it is something expected from the brand – and also the line. Considering that some of the competitors of the Sierra GMC and the super duty F-series have already been made available in the market, it is about time that the new 2500 is getting the mechanical updates and also visual changes. What are we waiting for the newer updates, after all?
One of the biggest changes happening to the new 2018 Dodge RAM 2500 model is the availability of the I-6 Cummins diesel engine with 6.7 liter capacity that is believed to improve the power; thus, leading to a better improvement on the performance. What about the design? There are some elements about the visual appeal that are still discussed but it is expected that the new updates for the 2500 model will be comprehensive – it should be more than the cosmetic changes.
Although the prototype ride is still under disguise, you can tell that there are some improvements that are underway for the new 2018 Dodge RAM 2500. The crosshair grille construction will likely remain, but the size may be smaller and its placement will be lower when compared to the already existing production. It is likely that the ride will also come with thinner headlights with revised front side bumper. Those aren’t the only changes happening to the 2500 as the redesigned hood and other updates on the exterior are meant to improve the overall styling and design – and done so to improve aerodynamic ability.
On the back area, the new 2018 Dodge RAM 2500 will get the same changes but not as obvious as the front side. The rear area will also get some of the changes but they should be more subtle and not as drastic as the front side.
What about the interior cabin? The same changes will also happen on the inside, with some cues and improvements are happening on the inside. Comfort, exclusivity, and luxury will definitely improve. Better access with higher technologies and features are becoming the next target of updates for the interior appeal. Better material and higher quality will be used. Besides the greatest comfort, center console will be likely the major focus of development.
It is likely that the 2500 will be coming with the similar V6 engine but with revised power and output. You can expect the new diesel Cummins V6 6.7 liter engine will generate more torque and power, which means that you should expect the 2018 model to come with more power than ‘just’ 380 hp of power and 800 pounds of torque. If it is coming with the V8 Hemi 5.7 liter engine, the output will be around 383 hp of power while the V8 6.4 liter engine will be able to deliver 410 hp of power. We should wait for further update and news about 2018 Dodge RAM 2500.
