At The 2018 Detroit Auto Show we saw three new truck that are loaded with tech.
The Ranger is back in the US for the first time since 2011. The 2019 Ford Ranger boasts a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, could be the unit from the Mustang and if so it would make the Ranger the most powerful model in its category.
Chevrolet’s Silverado pickup gets some pretty hefty upgrades for 2019. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado incorporates a whole new architecture, initially getting two V8 engine options — a 5.3-liter and a 6.2-liter. Tech features are up front and center, like wireless charging and push-button start.
The Dodge Ram is cranking the tech dial to 11 with an optional 12-inch, portrait-style touchscreen infotainment system that essentially works like two UConnect systems running at once. If you’re looking for a ton of creature comforts combined with the ability to haul a bed full of manure, The Doge Ram is your truck!
The 2019 Ram 1500’s interior has a lot of extra room due to a wheelbase that’s 4 inches longer. The rear seats are loaded with heating and cooling, as well as eight degrees of recline.
This design is a total game-changer in a truck, and we hope it causes the competition to raise their game.. 2018 is the year of the truck at the Detroit Auto Show
