2018-dodge-ram-2500

Several recent reports reveal that the Dodge Ram Heavy-Duty trucks are due to receive substantial enhancements for the 2018 model year. That doesn’t come as much of a surprise. The all-new Ford F-Series Super Duty and the upgraded Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra HD have already hit the market. Based on several photos of a spied test mule, we can safely say that the 2018 Dodge Ram 2500 will bring notable visual and mechanical improvements. According to reliable sources, the Ram’s 6.7-liter Cummins I-6 diesel should bring higher power and torque ratings in all of its variants. The scope of visual changes is still debated. We expect the Dodge Ram HD lineup to offer more than just mild cosmetic enhancements.

The current iteration of Ram’s half-ton pickup has been around since 2008 and its successor has been anticipated to go on sale for the 2018 model year. Speculations have recently been confirmed thanks to several spy images of a test mule that announces the all-new Ram 1500. According to available information, the next generation of this capable truck will offer more styles and variations than ever before. It will also be redesigned from the ground up, bringing all sorts of substantial improvements. Although the 2018 Ram 1500 is not likely to switch to a full-aluminum platform like the Ford F-150, some of the latest insider reports suggest that it might employ more lightweight materials in order to meet strict CAFE regulations.

2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat

It’s no secret that the next-generation Challenger is currently in the works and getting ready to make its debut in the next couple of years. Now, the American automaker has been rumored to introduce a new variant of the Hellcat-powered model for the 2018 model year. Luckily, rumors turned out to be true when a wide-body Challenger test prototype was spotted on Michigan roads only a few days ago. The new rear-wheel drive 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat has been dubbed the Challenger ADR (American Drag Racer) and it should come as the last major update of this sedan’s current iteration.

2018 Dodge RAM 1500 Redesign

The 2018 Dodge Ram 1500 will mark the long-awaited next generation of this highly popular pickup truck. As it has recently been confirmed by spy photos, the all-new 1500 is being prepared to replace the current model that has been around since 2008. It will practically be built from scratch, bringing a wide variety of substantial enhancements and new technology. On top of that, expect this capable pickup to be offered in more variants and styles than ever before. Although it has been anticipated by some that the redesigned model could copy the new Ford F-150 when it comes to the all-aluminum platform, it appears that it won’t be the case. However, the overhauled 1500 will definitely use a number of lightweight materials that should affect its curb weight in a positive way.

2018 Dodge Dart

It has been known for a while that FCA decided to cease production of the Dodge Dart by the end of 2016. However, rumor has it that Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne plans to find a viable replacement for this slow-selling sedan, as well as the Chrysler 200 which is going to stick around only a year longer. Ever since it arrived for the 2013 model year, the Dart has been struggling to meet its sales targets, which eventually resulted in the company’s decision to axe the model. Several sources are now speculating that Fiat Chrysler intends to offer a rebadged version of the Dart to its North American buyers. If that pans out, we might get to see the 2018 Dodge Dart hitting the market under another nameplate just as the stockpile of the current model runs out by mid-2017.

2018 Dodge Viper Release Date

Although the iconic Dodge Viper is due to get killed off by the end of the year, we’ve recently been given a reason to believe that its all-new successor could arrive for the 2018 model year. Namely, Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne hinted in a recent interview that a new version of the Viper might make its debut sooner than we previously expected. The famous American supercar has been around since 1991. It becomes synonymous with raw power and old-school driving experience that could be matched by very few other cars. While the model has gained huge popularity over the years, its sales figures have been dropping lately. Luckily, the 2018 Dodge Viper is expected to bring much-needed changes that should revive this famous nameplate in the very near future.

2018 RAM 2500 Release Date

The most recent reports suggest that Ram might launch the upgraded Heavy Duty lineup earlier than previously thought. It appears that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ testing grounds in Michigan are teeming with activity that involves revamped versions of the 2500 and 3500 trucks. That basically means the substantially improved HD line will follow the completely redesigned Ram 1500, hitting the market for the 2018 model year. Some are even suggesting that the recently photographed test mules are actually prototypes of the next-generation Heavy Duty trucks. In any case, expect the 2018 Ram 2500 to make a huge step forward in the fierce competition with the likes of the Ford F-250 and Chevy Silverado 2500.

2018 Dodge Journey Redesign Release

The next-generation Journey has been anticipated for quite some time now and expected to arrive by the end of this year. However, Fiat Chrysler Group decided to postpone the redesign for at least a year. Interestingly, the Journey’s sales numbers have been growing steadily over the years and this practical SUV is now more popular than ever. Despite its popularity, the current iteration of the Journey is outdated by most standards. It has been around since 2008, with the last major freshening taking place back in 2011. Latest reports suggest that the completely redesigned model might make its public appearance by the end of 2017. Apart from receiving a new exterior styling and improved mechanics, the 2018 Dodge Journey is expected to adopt the company’s CUSW platform that already underpins the Dodge Dart, Jeep Cherokee, Chrysler 200, etc.

2018 Dodge Barracuda Redesign

The revival of the well-known Barracuda nameplate has been anticipated for a while. Originally sold under the Plymouth brand, this fastback coupe was manufactured from 1964 to 1974 model years. This time around, the iconic Barracuda will be built by Dodge and most likely released for the 2018 model year. As a matter of fact, the 2018 Dodge Barracuda will be a smaller, convertible version of the new Challenger muscle car. Alongside the redesigned Charger and Challenger sedans, Fiat-Chrysler intends to offer the Barracuda in an attempt to boost sales of its Dodge brand. Needless to say, we expect this model to bring back some of the American automotive history in a brand new package.

2018 Dodge RAM Release Date

According to fresh reports coming from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, we should expect a bevy of substantial improvements when it comes to the Ram pickup truck lineup. Previously known as part of the Dodge line of light trucks, the Ram Trucks brand has been functioning separately since 2010. In order to keep pace with Ford and General Motors competitors, the 2018 Dodge Ram has a number of significant updates in store for its customers. To name just a few, the Ram 1500 is due to arrive completely redesigned for the 2018 model year, while the 2500 and 3500 models are expected to bring major improvements in the engine department. The company also plans to give its truck lineup a more aerodynamic design, including restyled front grilles across the range. Some of the recent reports suggest that the 2018 Dodge Ram is most likely to be released in late 2017.
