The 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well. Additional new features for the 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.

The 2018 Dodge Ram 1500, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity. A rear view camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.

The car is the only 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 trim level that can be had with a cool two-tone exterior color scheme. The ride itself was smooth, and road imperfections were barely felt.
