In the full-size pickup truck class, the RAM 1500 is a versatile offering that vaunts several cab styles for varied capabilities. However, out of all options, the Crew Cab variant nails the brief of being a family hauler with its capacious cabin and commercial viability. It comes with two rows of seating and has an ergonomic set up with a user-friendly infotainment system. The truck can tow around 10,340 lbs and has an equally impressive payload capacity of 1,638 lbs, yet it tends to fall diminutively short of its competitors. Nonetheless, its calm engine options and a refined 8-speed automatic transmission unit make it an absolute peach.

The 2018 RAM 1500 is largely unchanged. Except, the base and mid-level trims do benefit from an upgraded central console. Other than that, it’s a similar affair as the yesteryear model. In its segment, the 1500 Crew Cab competes with the likes of the GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab, and the Ford F-150 SuperCrew. How does RAM’s flagship truck fare against its rivals in a highly-competitive segment? Let’s find out.
