Current model of 1500 pickup gets power from 5.7-l V-8 Hemi engine. Same unit is coming for upcoming 2018 Ram 1500, and very probably 2019 Ram 1500. With some tuning, truck can go up to 400 hp and towing capacity closer to 11,000 lbs. Nevertheless, there should be 3.0-l EcoDiesel V-6 drivetrain as optional power heart. With it, new truck can go probably 26 mpg combined, with 30 mpg on highway. It is possible with new 8-speed automatic transmission. With all-wheel drive system, consumption is higher. However, than stability is better, as well as traction.

But, seeing through heavy camo, we could spot changes on front end. Grille is probably the same, but lights could get a new look. This is experiment for next year and major redesign. Few new color schemes are added, so 2018 model really looks refreshed. Interior parts won’t make big difference. However, updates on current systems are certain. Seats, dashboard, steering wheel, will see more modifications with 2019 year model. Then, entire pickup lineup is getting serious changes.
