2018 RAM Lone Star Silver Edition was also introduced at the 2017 State Fair of Texas, which was recently open in Dallas. It will only be available on Heavy Duty models (2500 HD and 3500 HD). Production began summer this year, while the market is expected by the end of the year (unfortunately only in the state of Texas). Also, there is an opportunity to appear at the beginning of 2018.
This heavy duty truck has a unique luxury grille with chrome surrounds and wave mesh inserts. The Aluminum Lone Star badge is located in the middle of the radiator grille, as well as on the tailgate. In addition to massive bumpers and big headlights, there are noticeably plenty of chrome details on the exterior elements, as well as hooks tow in the front bumper. Built are sporty cloth and vinyl bucket seats, with two combination covers: Canyon Brown and Light Frost Beige or Black and Diesel Gray. Of course, there is a telescopic leather steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control and an 8.4-inch touchscreen, equipped with the Uconnect 4C infotainment system.
Depending on the model, the length is 237.4 or 259.4 inch (6030 or 6589 mm), width 79.1 inch (2009 mm), height from 73.5 to 77.7 inch (1867-1974 mm), wheelbase 149.5, 168.9 or 169.4 inch (3797, 4290 or 4303 mm). Only is known the maximum towing capacity of 17450 lbs (7915 kg). Available is only Crew Cab with four-door, provides for up to six passengers. Mounted on 20-inch polished aluminum wheels.
The Silver Edition has a rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It’s likely to have an 8-speed automatic transmission. It is sure to offer two petrol and one diesel engine, probably with a slightly higher torque. The first is the 5.7-liter V8 Hemi motor of 383 hp and 410 lb-ft (556 Nm) of torque, and the second is the 6.4-liter V8 Hemi engine of 410 hp and 429 lb-ft (582 Nm) of torque. For now, mentioned is only one variant of diesel engines. It’s a 6.7-liter I-6 Cummins turbo diesel engine of 385 hp and 930 lb-ft (1261 Nm) of torque.
Certainly, the 2018 RAM Lone Star Silver Edition will be more expensive than the standard Lone Star model, as well as from the 2017 model. The basic model on 2500 HD costs $ 46,130, while the starting price for the 3500 HD model is $ 48,570.
