Dodge/Ram has a history of building larger-than-usual pickups, and it’s possible the company will revisit a winning formula for 2018, according to veteran spy photographer Glenn Paulina.

The camouflage only covers some parts of a modified Ram 1500 body, in what seems to be an attempt to hide a much larger cab than the 2016s. Riveted sections add length to the passenger compartment; a riveted seam in the roofline above the crew cab’s rear door should result in a larger door opening and more rear-seat space.

The area around the truck’s B-pillar is also camouflaged, with the vinyl camo covering a good portion of the front door, suggesting that more space has been added in front of the B-pillar, as well.

Finally, the tailgate, C-pillar, and rear window are also camouflaged, suggesting a wider truck.

The width may apply to all the Rams, but the extra length is likely for a specialty model with added storage, perhaps even a variation on the minivans’ stow-n-go.

Six-lug wheels suggests a more rugged or higher capacity 2018 Ram 1500.

Inside, Glenn Paulina managed to shoot the truck with camouflage panels flipped back. Most of the switchgear is similar to the current trucks, using a Chrysler Pacifica steering wheel; the Ram is expected to have a similar one, to use the latest telematics.

The 2018 Ram 1500 is expected to appear in late 2017, followed a year later by the new Ram 2500 and 3500.
