From the 2017 State Fair of Texas, Pickuptrucks.com's Mark Williams takes a look at the 2018 Ram Heavy Duty Lone Star Silver Edition, a Texas exclusive.
What it is: The Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks are available in three cab styles: regular cab, crew cab and Mega Cab. Buyers can choose single or dual rear wheels and one of two cargo box lengths. These trucks can seat up to six people in certain configurations. V-8 engines that run on gas and compressed natural gas are available, along with a six-cylinder Cummins diesel that generates up to 900 pounds-feet of torque. Competitors include the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and 3500HD, GMC Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD, and Ford F-Series Super Duty.
A backup camera is now standard, and high-end Limited Tungsten and farm-oriented Harvest editions are newly available.
The available 8.4-inch multimedia system now has a higher-resolution touchscreen with pinch-to-zoom functionality, incorporates HD Radio and available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Available emergency communication services are provided by SiriusXM Guardian, and there's also now a switch in the cargo bed for the available LED bed lights.
