Which RAM 1500 engine is right for me?

The RAM 1500 features three available engine choices, allowing drivers to prioritize capability, economy or fuel efficiency. The standard 3.6-liter gasoline V6 engine is the most wallet-friendly, coming standard with most of the lower-end trims. The most economical engine option, the gas V6 still puts out an impressive 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, and achieves up to 25 miles per gallon on the highway. On the higher trims, a beefier 5.7-liter V8 is the standard gasoline engine, boasting 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The V8 provides the highest horsepower of the 1500's engine lineup, and maximizes the pickup's tow capacity. Properly equipped, a V8-driven 1500 can tow up to 10,640 pounds. Optional on most trims and standard on the HFE, a turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 earns a best-in-class fuel efficiency of 29 miles per gallon on the highway. The EcoDiesel puts out 240 horsepower, as well as 420 lb-ft of torque, which is the most torque of any of the 1500's available engines. All of the RAM 1500's engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

What trim levels and body styles does the 2018 RAM 1500 come in?

The 2018 RAM 1500 is offered in 11 trim levels and five body configurations. Starting with the base Tradesman trim, the increasing trims add on upgraded interior materials and features, and some are designed with specific sets of features to improve performance is a particular area. The off-road-oriented Rebel trim (only available in the crew cab, 5-foot-7-inch bed configuration) features all-terrain tires, front and rear Bilstein shock absorbers, projector-style headlights and more. The HFE (high fuel economy) trim comes standard with the 1500's most efficient engine, the EcoDiesel, as well as automatic engine start-stop. In 2018, several special edition models and sub trims are also available, including the super luxurious Limited Tungsten, the work-ready and farm-oriented Harvest Edition, and the Sublime Green Sport appearance. While some trims are only available in specific configurations, there are five configuration options all in all. The Regular Cab can be paired with an 8-ft bed or a 6-ft, 4-in bed; the larger Crew Cab can be designated with either the 6-ft, 4-inch bed or a 5-ft, 7-in bed; and the Quad Cab is only available with the 6-ft, 4-in bed.
