2019 Ram 1500

Ram brings a solid fight to GM and Ford

The 2019 Ram 1500 is completely new from the tow hooks to the hitch and wears a new design that departs from the iconic crosshair grille of the last 25 years. It rides on an all-new frame that’s lighter and stronger, boasts a new interior that’s far more user-friendly and luxurious, and has a new mild hybrid system on both its 3.6-liter V-6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.

The truck moves into its fifth generation for 2019 and doubles down on every major selling point in a bid to win market share from Ford and General Motors. Weight has been reduced by 225 pounds, the frame is built from 98 percent high-strength steel for increased payload and towing, and the segment’s first-ever deployable front air dam will work in conjunction with the mild hybrid systems to improve fuel economy. Ram will continue offering its popular 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6, too, but with more power and torque.

The Ram Rebel returns, as well, but with more off-road equipment and twice the attitude. The other familiar trims include the Tradesman, Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited.

While pricing hasn’t been announced, the 2019 Ram 1500 will arrive in showrooms by the end of Q1 of 2018. That means we don’t have long to wait.

Pick Up Truck Drag Race: RAM 1500 TRX vs Ford ROUSH F-150

Pick Up Truck Drag Race: RAM 1500 TRX vs Ford ROUSH F-150

Two high-horsepower Pick-up Trucks go head to head. Can the lighter Ford F150 Roush match the RAM 1500 TRX’s savage Power?

What has the world come to? Just a decade ago, you wouldn’t think much of pick-up trucks in terms of straight-line acceleration. Sure, we’ve had things like the Ford Lightning or the GMC Syclone, but nowadays, you can buy a pick-up truck with well-over 600 and even 700 horsepower out the box. On today’s drag racing video from Sam CarLegion, we have a RAM 1500 TRX going up against a Ford F-150 Roush. The goal is simple – to find out who’s quicker at the quarter-mile.

Ram Comes Up With A New TRX 'Ignition' Edition Along With A Couple Of Special Editions For The 1500

Ram Comes Up With A New TRX ’Ignition’ Edition Along With A Couple Of Special Editions For The 1500

The TRX ‘Ignition’ Edition costs almost $25,000 more than the standard TRX and is limited to 875 examples

Ram has been quite active with facelifts, new trims, and special editions lately. It wasn’t too long ago when the company came out with G/T-spec models for the 1500 Laramie and Rebel trims and the 10th Anniversary Edition for the 1500 Limited trim. Not to mention, there were the ‘Built to Serve’ Edition 1500s that came out in five phases, with the latest one coming out earlier this year.

Now, the Ram introduced three new special edition trucks at the ongoing State Fair of Texas. One of the three is based on the Ram 1500 TRX and it is a homecoming of sorts for the truck as the automaker unveiled the TRX Concept five years back at the same event. The other two special editions are based on the Longhorn and the Limited trims. The changes on all three are purely aesthetic and come with no upgrades or updates under the hood.

RAM Believes Electric Trucks Shouldn't Come With Compromise

RAM Believes Electric Trucks Shouldn’t Come With Compromise

RAM’s EV will be built around its core values: Durability and Capability

Ram officially announced the electric 1500 a couple of weeks back without a whole lot of details. Ram’s parent company, Stellantis, celebrated an EV Day earlier this month wherein announced EVs from Dodge and Jeep, and of course, Ram. The 1500 EV’s production is slated to commence in 2024, but this could give it an edge over its rivals – which arrive earlier – as Ram can study the market better and come up with a well-rounded product right from the launch.

In fact, Ram also resonates with this and is confident of coming up with a truck that will be better than the Ford F-150 Lightning and the electric Chevy Silverado. The company’s brand marketing head noted that the electric 1500 won’t be a compromise. Well, if it’s arriving that late, we really hope it won’t in any aspect.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX - Driven

2021 Ram 1500 TRX - Driven

The Ram 1500 TRX can pamper you with its luxurious interior and make you wet your pants with its brutal on- and off-road performance at the same time

For very many years, the Ford F-150 Raptor was the only off-road standalone model you could get straight from the factory. Ram, however, decided to come up with a rival for it and announced its intention by coming up with a concept performance off-road truck in 2016 called the TRX. Pretty much everything we saw there made it to the production version as well.

Fast forward to 2020, Ram launched the TRX as a Raptor-killer by upping the ante in almost every single department. The TRX was introduced with a supercharged V-8 that makes over 700 horses, impressive off-road equipment and specs, and an uber-premium cabin. Given all the bells and whistles Ram offered, there was no way this was going to be an inexpensive truck. Ram priced it at $69,000 at launch in the ‘base’ form. At that time, it was clearly positioned above the Raptor as they both had a significant price difference.

While this is a truck that you definitely want, is this a truck that you actually need? A white 2021 Ram TRX arrived at TopSpeed and we find out the answer to that.

Ram's Electric 1500 Pickup Will Arrive Late, But That Could Give It An Edge Over Ford and Chevy

Ram’s Electric 1500 Pickup Will Arrive Late, But That Could Give It An Edge Over Ford and Chevy

Ram finally decides to throw its hat in the EV segment by announcing an electric 1500 pickup truck for 2024

After Ford brought in the F-150 Lightning and Chevy announced the electric Silverado, the only one remaining was Ram. Now, the Stellantis brand has also officially confirmed a battery-electric 1500 truck to take the three-way war to electrifying levels. The auto group celebrated an EV Day, wherein three of its brands – Dodge, Jeep, and Ram – had some big announcements. While Dodge stole the limelight with its Muscle EV news, Jeep and Ram tried to hog some attention with the Grand Cherokee 4xe and the 1500 BEV.

The Ram 1500 BEV is a long time away, with production slated to begin in 2024. But, it is still good news, and the automaker will hope to replicate its recent truck success in the EV arena, too.

2022 Ram 1500 Laramie G/T and Rebel G/T

The G/T trims include addition like a performance hood, cold-end exhaust, and a console-mounted shifter, amongst other things

Ram is going through a purple patch right now and it doesn’t want to take its foot off the gas pedal. After beating the Chevy Silverado and the Ford F Series in the second-quarter sales this year, Ram is keeping the ball rolling by adding spice to its arsenal. The automaker launched the 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary edition earlier this month and has now come up with a couple more special edition trucks. This time, they’re based on the Laramie and Rebel models.

Ram has introduced G/T models for the 1500 Laramie and the 1500 Rebel that come with aesthetic upgrades and an updated exhaust system. They are priced at a premium over the standard models and will be available within the next couple of months.

2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition

2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary Edition

Ram has introduced a special edition with more features to commemorate the 1500 Limited pickup truck’s 10th anniversary

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Ram brought luxuriousness to the pickup truck segment. Take the 1500, for instance. The higher trims are plush enough to put similarly priced sedans and SUVs to shame. This has even forced companies like Chevy and GMC, and Ford to up the ante and come up with premium offerings.

Ram knows this, too, and isn’t very modest about it. To commemorate the 1500 Limited truck, the epitome of luxuriousness in the Ram 1500 lineup, the automaker has introduced a new 10th Anniversary Edition. The way Ram hyped it, it seemed like the truck will wear a big sticker price; but, it comes at a premium of just $3,000 over the standard Limited model, which isn’t too bad.

Ram 1500 TRX vs Dodge Charger Hellcat: This Intra-Family Feud Has Us Hyped

The TRX and the Charger share the same V-8 Hellcat engine, but the latter makes more power and is lighter

The folks at The Fast Lane Truck took the Ram 1500 TRX and the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody to a drag strip for a couple of races. Both these Stellantis products are absolute beasts and churn out almost 1,500 horses and 1,350 pound-feet of torque combined. On paper, the Charger holds the edge over the TRX. But, can it be replicated on the race strip, or will the TRX get the bragging rights?

When you hear about a Hennessey build, you know it’s going to be fast and powerful. And it’s not just supercars, either, as the company has injected even SUVs and trucks with doses of steroids in the past and continues to do so. Recently, the company uploaded a video on YouTube wherein John Hennessey talks about his plan to plonk Mopar’s Hellephant engine into the Ram 1500 TRX and the Dodge Durango SRT.

2021 Ram 1500 ‘Built to Serve’: Coast Guard Edition

This is the fifth and final installment in the ‘Built to Serve’ series and honors the coast guards this time

In November 2019, Ram had announced a series of special ‘Built to Serve’ series of trucks to honors America’s five armed forces. The first four editions were launched over the last 15 months, and now, it’s time for the final phase that honors the coast guards. Ram will offer 1,250 packages in this installment out of the 10,000 earmarked for this series. The production for it will begin in the second quarter of 2021.

Hennessey Introduces a 1,000-Horsepower Ram 1500 TRX That Takes Just 3.2 Seconds to 60 MPH

The production will be limited to 200 examples

Back in September 2020, Hennessey announced the introduction of a six-wheeled iteration of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX called the Mammoth 6x6. The super-exclusive truck was limited to just three examples and was priced at half-a-million bucks a pop. Even though it sounded super exciting, a more practical version of the truck would’ve been a better option. It looks like Hennessey has answered our wishes.

The aftermarket company’s latest project is a 1,000+ Horsepower ‘four-wheeled’ version of the Ram 1500 TRX. It comes with a host of other mechanical additions and features. Hennessey has also announced that it will build 200 examples of this truck.

2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Ram 1500: Towing and Payload Capacities

2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Ram 1500: Towing and Payload Capacities

Does the 2021 F-150 tow and haul more than the Ram 1500?

People buy pickup trucks to haul and tow a lot more compared to any other type of vehicle. Even though trucks have gotten better in terms of aesthetics, ride quality, premium features, and so on, the biggest selling points are hauling and towing prowess.

No matter what, this is one thing that automakers can’t compromise on. With the number of trims, engine options, and body styles offered on trucks these days, it can get confusing to get a hang of which truck offers what kind of ratings. So, here’s a comprehensive look at the best trucks you can buy in the U.S. today – the 2021 Ford F-150 and the 2021 Ram 1500.

2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Ram 1500: Powertrain

2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Ram 1500: Powertrain

Nothing else matters if you don’t have a good engine under the hood of your truck

One of the most important aspects of a truck is its towing and payload prowess. We see automakers improve their ratings quite often, and that has to do with the structural changes made to the truck. However, this is rendered useless if you don’t offer a powerful mill under the hood to pull all the weight.

Truckmakers are known to offer multiple engine options, but you can’t have them in any body style or trim level. All of this can get quite confusing, so we decided to compare them all. We’ve already covered the 2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, so this time, it’s the 2021 Ram 1500’s turn to be compared to the king of the jungle.

The truck churns out 1,075 pound-feet of torque and has a gooseneck towing capacity of 37,100 pounds

The launch of the TRX is old news now and it looks like Ram has started tweaking the rest of the lineup as well. Last week, the company launched the fourth phase of the ‘Built to Serve’ series trucks, and now it has updated the Heavy-Duty truck for the 2021 model year.

The Ram 3500 HD now boasts of a higher tow rating and a higher peak torque. A few tech features are also introduced, but in terms of aesthetics, it remains the same. Will these improvements help draw more customers to the brand?

The company will be offering more than 100 factory-backed accessories for the world’s most powerful truck

Ram launched the 2021 1500 TRX in August this year and it came with impressive specs and features. Given that it’s an FCA product, we knew that there will be no dearth of aftermarket accessories and that will give the truck a major edge over the F-150 Raptor.

The automaker even announced that will be available with more than 100 Mopar accessories like off-road lights, beadlock-capable wheel rings, and so on, right from the launch. Ram has now officially launched the products and gave out the part number and prices for a few of them.

The Ford F-150 Hybrid Makes the Ram 1500 Hemi Hybrid Look Bad in Towing Racing

The F-150 hybrid humbled the Ram 1500 hybrid in a big way

Ford made us wait for the hybrid truck for a long time. It was in news earlier this year for offering a pathetic range, but Ford somehow managed to kill the news. When the company unveiled the 2021 F-150, the hybrid was showcased, and it showed a lot of potential. Although the truck is still some time away, we have finally gotten to see how it performs in the real world.

A video was uploaded on YouTube by “F150gen14” that shows the 2021 F-150 Hybrid take on the Ram 1500 Hemi E-torque in a towing drag race. If this video is a testament to the truck’s performance, then the hybrid mill will make for a large chunk of 2021 F-150 sales.

Mopar Launches Retractable Center-Mounted Bed Step for Ram 1500 Trucks

Mopar Launches Retractable Center-Mounted Bed Step for Ram 1500 Trucks

This will be quite helpful when climbing onto the bed

Pickup trucks have been around for ages now. Even after being thoroughly abused, these workhorses refused to die. With changing times, pickup trucks became more than just people and luggage haulers and started being infused with creature comforts and even some performance upgrades. One thing, however, that remained the same was the pickup bed and its utility. But, not too long ago, Ram revolutionized this by introducing a MultiFunction Tailgate that was a simple transformation but made a whole lot of difference. GM followed, and now Ford is working on something similar as well.

While it was practical and made a lot of sense, climbing into the bed with the swing doors open was still a task. Now Ram and Mopar have introduced a retractable, bed-mounted step that solves this issue.

However, Ram decided to throw in a little something for the 2021 model year. So it introduced a new ‘Limited Night Edition’ for the 1500 and the Heavy Duty trucks.

2020 Ram 1500 vs. 2020 Nissan Titan

2020 Ram 1500 vs. 2020 Nissan Titan

The first-generation Nissan Titan was a bold, brash, revolutionary pickup. Back in 2003, it marched into Detroit’s stronghold with a monster 5.6-liter V8 engine — making a then-mighty 300 horsepower — and an aggressive, head-turning design. It was the first and last time Nissan set out to make a class-leading full-size pickup truck. Nearly two decades later, the current Titan hasn’t changed dramatically under the skin or under the hood.

These days, it’s Ram that’s making waves. In the famously brand-loyal segment, Ram started winning market share with the 2009 model’s unusually smooth ride. It continued its luxury focus by introducing an extra-posh interior in the current generation, which arrived as a 2019 model. Smooth, quiet, elegantly finished, and filled with advanced technology, the current Ram 1500 is a master of civility while still offering commendable capability. The 2020 model also marks the return of a capable yet fuel-efficient “EcoDiesel” engine.

But even if Nissan isn’t making headlines anymore, it never stopped making Titans. It introduced the second-generation Titan as a 2017 model, and it followed up with new features, upgraded infotainment, and some mechanical updates for 2020. We recently spent back-to-back weeks in the updated Titan and an EcoDiesel-equipped Ram 1500. Here’s what we learned about these two trucks.

2021 Ram Rebel TRX - Everything You Need to Know

2021 Ram Rebel TRX - Everything You Need to Know

The 2021 Rebel TRX will come with concept-like exterior, premium interior, and one Hell(cat) of an engine

Update 8/17/2020: The 2021 Ram Rebel TRX has made it’s debut. We’re busy updating this article and our full review, but head on over to our quick facts and photo gallery to learn more about it!

The Ram Rebel is one of the sportiest trucks on the market today. It’s not just the tuners, but also the automakers building powerful and fast monsters right out of the factory. Dodge can be credited with this trend when they launched the Dodge Ram SRT-10 more than 15 years back. This truck was powered by the same V-10 found in the Dodge Viper. However, the market was not mature enough to handle it, thus sending it off the production line within three years of its inception.

Fast forward to 2016 and Dodge is Now Ram, and it revealed a concept truck called the Ram Rebel TRX. In 2018, the company said the concept was given a green signal by the corporate overlords and they will be building it. Since then, enthusiasts have been in a tizzy as to what to expect out of this beast. The only thing confirmed so far is that it will be powered by one Hell(cat) of an engine that will be driven by over 700 horses. Is there anything else? Well, here’s a list of all the things you need to know about the upcoming 2020 Ram Rebel TRX, thanks to Mopar Insiders and Allpar.

Ram has finally broken the silence on its electrification strategy. At a time when electrification is taking over the pickup truck segment by storm, Ram had been awfully quiet on this subject. There are a lot of new automakers in this segment who are looking to take on the Big Three players with electric pickup trucks. Ford and Chevy are also working on them, but what about Ram?

We didn’t know so far, but now we do. Ram has said that it is very much in the game, but has “different view of timing and adoption rates”. Is this a smart move or will Ram pay for being a late entrant to the market?

These look quite familiar, but there are a couple of things that are exclusive to the TRX. For instance, there is a TRX mode button at the top of the control panel and the gear selector knob is absent from its usual place.

Gone are the days when drag racing was limited to supercars and hypercars. These days, watching trucks go berserk in a straight line is the trend. The guys at TFL Truck decided to bring four pickups to the race track – two Chevy Silverados with different V-8 engines, a GMC Sierra with a straight-six mill, and a Ram Rebel with a V-6. Instead of pitting all four workhorses against each other at the same time, the two V-8s battled first, and then the V-6s followed suit. The winners of both these races then went on to face each other and try to win the ’tournament’. Which truck do you think won?

2020 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition

2020 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition

This is a proper tribute piece to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces

RAM’s penchant for rolling out special edition trucks has paved the way for the truck brand to introduce a new run of special edition models that pay tribute to the five branches of the United States military. The special edition trucks fall under the RAM 1500 Built To Serve Edition name. Each of the five armed services — Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marines — will receive their own special edition treatment. It’s unclear which of the five will get rolled out first, but the specific launches will take place every three months, beginning next week when the truck brand hosts its own Veterans Day celebration on November 11.

2019 RAM 1500 Rebel Off the Grid Concept by Mopar

2019 RAM 1500 Rebel Off the Grid Concept by Mopar

With concepts like this one, Mopar will light up the 2019 SEMA show

Aftermarket companies love SEMA. It is the one hot spot that garners attention from all over the world and allows aftermarket companies to highlight their creations without worrying about automakers stealing the limelight. Mopar, one of the biggest aftermarket parts suppliers (and one that is backed by Dodge,) is gracing the show with its presence. The company has worked on two trucks, one being the Dodge Lowliner Concept, and the other one, the Ram Rebel 1500 OTG. OTG, by the way, stands for Off The Grid. Unlike the Lowliner, the Rebel 1500 OTG is a practical concept and could very well make its way into production. Will Ram consider making it a mainstream model?

2020 Ram 1500 Classic Mohave Sand Package

An exterior shade that will make the truck stand out from the crowd

Ram sure knows how to keep its product portfolio active. Lately, a lot of our attention has been on the 2020 Ram 1500, which comes with the third-gen EcoDiesel engine and also created a record of sorts by claiming the Top Safety Pick+ award. Logically, this would mean a drop in the sales for the 2019 model. However, Ram is keeping the 2019 1500 active by launching new packages and special editions of the truck. This time, we get the new Mojave Sand Package that’s offered on the 2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock. The truck comes with a host of aesthetic changes to distinguish it from the standard Ram 1500. But, is it worth buying?

2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition

2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition

As mean as the Rebel, but with the luxury features of the top-trim model

The 2020 Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition is a limited-edition version of the latest-generation Ram 1500 pickup truck. Based on the range-topping Limited trim, the Black Edition is exactly what the name suggests. It’s painted black, it features body-colored bumpers, and replaces all chrome trim with black inserts. It’s probably the meanest Ram 1500 you can buy aside from the Rebel. What’s more, it combines both sportiness and luxury, something the Rebel trim can’t offer. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

The Ram 1500 Is Officially The First Full Size Pickup to Earn an IIHS Top Safety Pick + Rating

The automaker is on fire and nothing seems to stop it at the moment

Ram is on a roll these days. The company recently unveiled the third-gen EcoDiesel engine and it has put the competition under pressure. As if that wasn’t enough to attract customers, the Ram 1500 has now won the IIHS’s (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) most coveted award - Top Safety Pick+ - making it the first full-size pickup truck to be conferred with this rating. With the way the automaker is rolling, can it do anything wrong at all?

Ram's New EcoDiesel Engine Undercuts The Price of The Competition While Claiming The Top-Spot In The Towing Department

Ram’s New EcoDiesel Engine Undercuts The Price of The Competition While Claiming The Top-Spot In The Towing Department

With this new engine, Ram seems to have a winner in its hands

Don’t you fret, diesel engine fans. Even if EVs are taking the industry by storm, oil burners are here to stay; at least when it comes to pickup trucks. Companies in this segment generally tend to have many diesel engine options and from the looks of it, there’s no stopping yet. On that note, Ram has launched its third-gen EcoDiesel engine in the 2020 Ram 1500 pickup trucks. This engine will be available across the stable in all configurations, but does it get any better than the second-generation EcoDiesel?

RAM Got Caught Pushing the Hellcat-Powered Rebel TRX Across Sand Dunes

Is there any other surface left for these new-aged pickup trucks to conquer?

Ram was one of the first automakers to venture into the performance pick-up truck niche. Back when trucks were used for hauling cargo and were meant solely for utility, Ram decided to do something different and create a segment that perhaps didn’t even exist. Nevertheless, it intrigued the minds of enthusiasts, which in turn created an avenue for other automakers to throw in their hat and see how they fared. Fast-forward to 2019, and we can see Ram pushing its Rebel TRX through the sand dunes in this video.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Ram 1500

Ram had to keep up with Ford and Chevy, so the time came to give the Ram 1500 a very serious update. And, a serious update is exactly what it got. And, when we say full update, we mean it is all-new with a new frame, new grille, and a completely revised interior, among other things. The fifth-gen model brings together every major selling point the truck has ever had in the best way yet it’s lighter than ever. Even the EcoDiesel V-6 got an update to deliver more power and torque while the truck can even be had with a deployable front air dam and a mild-hybrid drive system. We could talk about the new Ram 1500 all day long, but that’s not why we’re here (you can read our full review for that.) instead, we’re here because we love the look of the new 1500 and decided to make it our wallpaper of the day.

Elon Musk Throws Shade at RAM's Towing Capacity, Sets Super High Expectations For Tesla Pickup

Elon Musk Throws Shade at RAM’s Towing Capacity, Sets Super High Expectations For Tesla Pickup

There’s very little room for interpretation when you label a 12,000-pound towing capacity as "puny"

Elon Musk is no stranger to making outrageous claims on his Twitter account. True or not, the Tesla CEO also doesn’t hold back from engaging other Twitter users in colorful dialogue. One user who proudly displays his affection for the Dodge Ram found that out the hard way when he threw the Ram’ 1500’s 12,000-pound towing capacity right in the direction of Musk and his Twitter account. In true Musk fashion, he responded the only way Elon Musk knows how to respond, putting “Dodge Ram Owner” in his place by thumbing his nose down the towing and hauling abilities of Motor Trend’s 2019 Truck of the Year.

2019 Ram 1500 Classic Warlock

A custom throwback special edition that conjures the ‘70s

These days, custom pickup trucks are everywhere, with interested buyers offered a plethora of choices both from the aftermarket and straight from the factory. However, 40 years ago, it was far less common to get a bespoke aesthetic direct from the manufacturer. In that sense, the original Warlock pickup broke the mold, and now Ram is taking the nameplate off the shelf for a fresh special edition iteration of the 1500.

2019 GMC Sierra MultiPro Tailgate V.S. 2019 Ram Multifunction Tailgate

Two truck innovations square off to decide which one has the better overall offering

It’s the dawn of a new age for pickup trucks these days as the RAM 1500 and the GMC Sierra square of in a battle of wits involving their respective…tailgates. Unlike in the past where pickups are usually compared by the amount of power they produce or the amount of weight they can carry or tow, we’re entering a new frontier where the term “trick tailgate” is about to become one of the most important elements of a pickup, if it isn’t there already. GMC was the first to showcase its six-function MultiPro tailgate in 2018 on the Sierra truck. It took some time, but RAM has responded with its own trick tailgate, known as the MultiFunction tailgate, at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show. So, now that we’ve seen both tailgates and tinkered with them on separate occasions, which of these two is better? For that, we look at the Tale of the Trick Tailgates.

The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful

Is this the new flashpoint in the pickup truck wars?

The more utility you can add to a pickup, the better it becomes. That’s a given, but how do you improve on the formula? It seems as though GMC found a way with its Multipro Tailgate and 2019 Sierra, which offers multiple configurations for improved access to the box, extended holding capacity, and a second-tier loading height. Now Ram is getting in on the action with its own take on the configurable tailgate concept, offering up something it’s calling the Multifunction Tailgate on all seven trim levels of the 2019 Ram 1500. Granted, GMC was the first in this space, but we think Ram might have the better tailgate this time around.

Redesigned from the ground up, the 1500 once again hits dealers in a number of different trim levels and configurations.

2019 Ram 1500 Atulux by Aznom Automotive

2019 Ram 1500 Atulux by Aznom Automotive

You’re either going to love this creation or hate it to the depths of hell

Aznom Automotive has come up with a doozy of a creation. Using a Ram 1500 as a base vehicle, the Italian coachbuilder has transformed what is a capable pickup truck into something straight out of the Black Mirror. The creation still wears the face of a Ram 1500, but the vehicle’s profile is anything but a pickup. Instead, it’s been transformed into a cross between a pickup and a sedan, a “pick-dan” for lack of a better — and far more sensible — term. The monstrosity carries the name Atulux, which literally stands for “All-Terrain Utility Luxury.” Best have a strong stomach for this one because, in addition to looking the way it does, it also costs more than $250,000, or roughly the equivalent of a fleet of actual Ram 1500s.

On the other hand, sales of passenger vehicles, including sedans, are down 13.3 percent in the same period.

The Best Full-Size Pickups Ranked from Last to First

You can’t go wrong with any of these models, but you can hit the jackpot if you pick the right one that suits your lifestyle

The best full-sized pickups in the market are often those that give you the best of a lot of worlds. It’s not enough for a pickup to look good or boast a luxurious interior. It’s not even enough to have the most powerful engine. A good pickup has all of those things to go with impressive handling and driving qualities, as well as towing and hauling capabilities. Like the image the segment presents as do-it-all vehicles, a good pickup has to, quite literally, do it all. That said, not every pickup can do it as well as some of its contemporaries. There are those that excel in a few things but don’t much up as well in other respects. Then there are those that not only excel at one thing; they excel at everything. On that end, we’ve made a list of the best full-sized pickups in the market today, ranked from last to first.

2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Low Down Concept

2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Low Down Concept

There’s still a world where this creation can thrive

The 2018 SEMA Auto Show played host to a pair of custom-tuned Ram 1500 pickup trucks, including one that goes by the name “Low Down.” Based on the 1500 Big Horn trim level, the Low Down is what happens when you raid Mopar’s parts bin for equipment that can be used to give the 1500 Big Horn a more “slammed-to-the-streets” styling direction. It doesn’t do anything to emphasize the 1500 Big Horn’s masculinity, but it does give it a new urban look that plays well in the underground street racer culture. All it needs is a little nitro boost — perhaps machine guns, too? — and it’ll fit right into the kind of cars you normally see in the Fast and Furious franchise.
