According to latest reports, 2018 Dodge Ram 2500 will finally come redesigned. These series of trucks are some of the best-known nameplates of this Chrysler’s division. First Rams dates from more than three decades ago, while heavy duty variant appeared a bit later. This is an entry-level model, when it is a about hard working machines. Current model is present since 2008, and if we consider that main competitors from Ford and General Motors already redesigned their models, it is clear that Dodge must do the same, or it won’t be enough competitive anymore. New model is expected to come in about year or two.
