2019 Dodge Ram 1500 Redesign

The next generation of Ram 1500 pickup trucks, coded DT, is likely to have some lighter materials accompanying the usual steel, to increase the fuel economy and load capacity. Some models may gain some cab space, as well. It’s scheduled to go into production in early January 2018, as a 2019 model, at the Sterling Heights assembly plant — a move from the traditional Warren plant.

The new Rams are supposed to have grilles that are not quite as tall, so they can improve their aerodynamics. The huge Rebel tailgate letters may be replaced by the Ram logo or smaller letters; but the “big rig” styling will continue. The crosshair is said to be returning in force, with Dodge giving it up instead of Ram. Automotive News wrote that the headlights will be smaller and integrated into the grille, with horizontal fog lights put into the bumper; they also projected a flatter center console to provide more space.

The Pentastar upgrade with direct injection should boost power to 310-320 hp, with higher economy and better low end torque. A twin-scroll V6 is expected around 2020, but may arrive earlier; and there’s even talk of a four cylinder turbo, production around 280 hp, as an economy option for fleets (and to get the “highway mpg” advertising number).

As for the 5.7 liter “Apache” Hemi engines, major changes seem to have been abandoned, and the company will most likely be running on stockpiled Hemis after 2018. That said, there’s been some talk of a new turbo 5.7 — something to boost power near 392 levels, without the bulk and weight.

Dodge/Ram has a history of building larger-than-usual pickups, and it’s possible the company will revisit a winning formula for 2019, according to veteran spy photographer Glenn Paulina.

The camouflage covering this modified Ram 1500 body seems to be an attempt to hide a larger cab. 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.
