For 2018, the Ram 1500 adds special editions like the Limited Tungsten and the Harvest Edition while the Sport version undergoes some changes to its appearance. The 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel (240 horsepower and 420 lb·ft) is back after missing most of 2017. The Ram's rear coil-spring suspension is unique in this class. A brand new 2019 Ram 1500 will be launched in January 2018 and will gradually replace the various incarnations of the current version.
