2018 Dodge Ram Redesign and Changes
The new 2018 Dodge Ram is going to suffer a major upgrade in terms of design. In our opinion, we will get a more aerodynamic design. On the front, we should see a new grille and narrower headlights. The logo should be placed in the center.
One of the differences that you’ll get when you decide to get the new 2018 Dodge Ram Rebel is that instead of the Rebel name in the front, you’re still going to get the same Ram logo, just like on any other version.
