An Oldie, but a Goodie

New Ram Trucks at All Star Dodge Ram near North County

The Ram pick up truck is one of the oldest vehicles in the truck segment, but is still hugely popular with customers. This is probably because it has been refreshed each generation that keep it competitive and desirable. We talked last month about some changes that were coming in 2019, but as it turns out, there will be some changes by 2018 too! We are so excited to share with you some of those changes today!

The biggest changes are coming on the Ram 1500 and Ram 2500 Sport and Big Horn Black models. The Sport model sits in the upper-middle of the Ram lineup. It’s a handsome truck, with dark emblems and body color bumpers and trim. The headlights get dark surrounds while the hood gets two scoops, similar to that on the Challenger. The big news for 2018 is the addition of the big, R-A-M grille. This ditches the iconic cross grille, replacing it with a wide, body-color piece with RAM in bold letters right in the center.

“The new Big Horn Black edition slots just below the Sport trim. Consider this the “murdered-out” model, with black on black on black. It’s a sleek look, with black paint, black wheels, and black trim. It has the traditional cross grille but swipes the hood from the Sport model. Both trucks go on sale later this year.”-autoblog.com

These are just some of the changes and refreshes that are coming in 2018. We are sure that the other changes are sure to be big hits as well. Head to All Star Dodge Ram near North County to take the Ram 1500 or Ram 2500 for a test drive. Before you know it, the new 2018 models will be on the lot for your purchasing pleasure soon!
