2019 Ram 1500 – First, the new Jeep Wrangler is unveiled at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and now we have a clear picture of the interior of the new Ram pickup truck. This is the best advertisement that FCA brands have known for years.
Obviously, the biggest change will be the grille, because it is almost certain that we will have seen the last traditional grille that dates back to the Ram era as a Dodge. Ram’s traditional logo was probably scrapped, at least on the outside, in favor of the large Ram script currently on the Ram Rebel, Laramie Longhorn and Limited versions. Indeed, this seems to be a change that the brand has subtly tried to get for its customers, as a quick trip to the company’s site will show greater confidence in these trim levels to visually represent each Ram model (y including heavy 2500 and 3500).
Now, there will likely be several more grille options available as there are today to at least differentiate between luxury and off-road models. We also suspect that there may be some kind of crossbar in the middle of the standard grille that matches the truck’s Big Horn / Laramie look, namely the medium-grade chrome trim shown above and what was spied on Michigan. day.
We had very good pictures of the new Ram interior a few weeks ago. There will be a vertically oriented touch screen, possibly with updated UConnect interface software, flanked by hard buttons for the climate control system. A volume knob and a redundant versatile control knob will remain, as will the rotary transmission selector. The new toggle switches below will be dedicated to various vehicle controls, and we would assume they will stay in place across the full range of trim levels. Smaller touch screens will almost certainly be found on the bottom liners with a traditional range of climate controls between them and the flip-flops.
In the powertrain department, expect to see the famous V-6 3.6-liter and V-8 5.7-liter, possibly with turbocharger available for the first. And despite the recent diesel problems of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, we are still waiting for a torquey oil burner in the next generation 1500 at one point. More powerful V-8 options are also likely, including a rival Ford F-150 Raptor, and we hear that lightweight hybrid technology is also being explored.
Look for the new Ram 1500 to debut early next year at the Detroit Auto Show. Prices should be similar to those of today, and we expect the enhanced heavy models using the corresponding style indices to arrive soon thereafter.
