It’s no secret that Ram trucks are incredibly powerful and delightful to ride in. We are really excited to report that for 2018, it looks like the Ram line up of trucks is getting a little more sporty. We want to explore that new sporty look here today.
Ram is continuing to slowly phase out its brand’s cross-hair grille, as the 2018 Ram 1500 Sport and Ram Heavy Duty pickups equipped with the Sport Appearance package adopt a variant of the snout found on the Laramie Longhorn, Limited, and the new-for-2018 Ram Limited Tungsten trims. As on those Ram trims, the 2018 Sport and Sport Appearance package’s body-color grille is distinguished by its pig-like nostrils and large “R-A-M” script and is paired with either black or chrome wheels and badges.
The cross-hair grille design can be traced back to the 1986 Dodge Ram. Now that Ram is no longer a part of the Dodge brand, it’s not surprising the relatively young truck brand is trying to separate itself from its Dodge brand mates that also use the cross-hair grille.
“The new-for-2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Black continues to bear the cross-hair mug of Rams past. Looking much like the Ram 1500 Black Express that was introduced in 2013, the Big Horn Black features black paint, black wheels, black badges, and black headlight bezels. Unlike the lesser Ram 1500 Black Express, the 2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Black features convenience items such as an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 7.0-inch gauge cluster display.”-caranddriver.com
