The Sport package says “goodbye” to the old cross-hair grille and join many of the other trucks on the lineup and the RAM grille is in. The body-color Ram grille will now come standard with Ram Sport models! The Sport will be be offered with either black or polished aluminum wheels, and the package will be available Bighorn and Laramie trims.
New Truck Platform
Other major changes to the lineup includes a new truck platform. In 2018 the trucks will be using a new steel strength frame chassis and a mostly steel body frame. Some areas of the trucks will use aluminum, which will make the truck a bit lighter. Making the trucks lighter means higher performance and more capability when it comes to towing.
Also new for the 2018 model year is the increased amount of torque that new and improved 6.7-liter I-6 Cummins diesel engine produces. Available on the Ram 3500, the 6.7L Cummins diesel engine now produces 930 lb-ft of torque, which is 30 lb-ft more than the engine previously produced. More details on the new engine are available here.
