The redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 pickup -- wholly changed and sporting sophisticated technology once reserved for luxury sedans -- is the result of that all-in commitment to the automaker's top-selling vehicle.
Along with Ford's pace-setting F series, the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500 form a collection of trucks that showcase some of the most sophisticated technologies each manufacturer has in its arsenal.
The long list of engineering, safety, performance and functional improvements -- a bigger and quieter cabin, a stronger frame, more storage and improved fuel efficiency -- in the next Ram half-ton truck signal that FCA is determined to challenge Chevrolet and Ford like never before.
The Chevy Silverado, GM's top-selling and most profitable nameplate, will be available in more trim lines, with expanded powertrain options, technology and functionality, for 2019. The retooled truck and its GMC counterpart, the Sierra, are the biggest product program ever undertaken by GM.
Spy photographers have caught confirmation that at least some versions of the next-generation Ram 1500 pickup will have a new dual-function tailgate, capable of dropping down or opening up french door style.
