Differences of the New vs. Old Model – Mechanical

The big difference between the 2018 and the 2017 model is fuel consumption. The automobile has transformed very advantageously during its redesign, surpassing the 2017 model. At the level of the engine, at RAM it is the Cummins turbo diesel of 6.7 liters (V8 Hemi of 5.7 L with gasoline available). In both cases, it’s a torque of 800 lb-ft.

By adding a diesel engine in the half-ton class, it remains competitive against its American and Japanese rivals who, also in their way, are in trouble. The accelerations are fast even if they are trucks and the noise of diesel engines is acceptable (less noisy), and less detrimental than a few years ago. Thanks to its independent four-wheel suspension, the RAM also offers a degree of comfort that is almost unthinkable for a truck.
