2020 Ram 1500 Built to Serve Edition
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
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?
2019 Ram 2500 Laramie Longhorn
Even though Ram is the newest member in the truck segment (if you don’t count the years "Ram" was a model under the Dodge umbrella), it cannot be taken for granted. Given the kind of products it has in its portfolio, you will be surprised to know that the company is just nine years old. Ram is essentially a by-product of Dodge and is a fully-owned subsidiary of the FCA. Don’t mistake it to be a rookie or a newb by any means. The name might be new, but the company has been building trucks since the 1970s under the name ’Fargo trucks’ which was sold outside the United States. The 2019 Ram model sees a few changes. These trucks became an overnight sensation when Ram announced a 1,000 pound-foot of torque figure for the 3500 series. The Ram 2500 doesn’t boast that, but it still has a lot going in its favor to be deemed as a potent threat to the Blue Oval and the Bowtie.
2019 Ram Heavy Duty Kentucky Derby Special Edition
The 145th Kentucky Derby is coming up on May 4th, and Ram is celebrating with the release of a fresh limited run of its popular Heavy Duty truck. Making its big debut at the 2019 New York Auto Show, the new special-edition workhorse gets a few unique exterior styling bits, extra interior comfort-enhancers, and a raft of standard gear to make hauling your four-legged investments even easier.
2019 Ram 2500 Limited
The battle of the trucks is never-ending. We have seen multiple players step in the ring, but none of them could get anywhere close to the products with the Blue Oval logo slapped on them. Ram trucks fall under the same category. These trucks have been a victim to Ford’s dominance for as long as one can remember. In all fairness, Ram is still a baby. The company was spun-off from the Dodge brand in 2010 and is owned by FCA. Even though the company is not as mature and experienced as the Chevy and the Ford, Ram sure has learned how to create quality products that can give the rivals a run for their money. For the 2019 model year, Ram decided to drop a bomb and declare war on the competition by launching a truck with four-digit torque figures! Can things get any crazier?
2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty By Mopar
The 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty by Mopar is a concept truck that showcases Mopar’s new line of accessories for FCA’s latest heavy-duty workhorse. Unveiled at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, it previews already available and upcoming accessories from this iconic customization brand.
The Ram 2500 Heavy Duty is a brand-new truck for the 2020 model year. Unveiled at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, it arrived just a month ahead of the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado HD and the facelifted Ford F-Series Super Duty. For the time being, the Ram Heavy Duty is the only truck of its kind offered with factory-installed accessories, a valuable advantage until Chevy and Ford roll out their out features.
The Mopar-modified 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Has Everything That You Can Ask For In A Truck
Mopar has laid its hands on the 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty and has given prospective buyers one more reason to buy this truck as soon as it launches. Actually 170 reasons. Mopar debuted the modified 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty truck at the Chicago Auto Show and results are nothing but phenomenal. Mopar offers 170 aftermarket parts for the truck, ranging from lights, to trailer cameras. You name it, and Mopar has it.
2020 Ram Chassis Cab Brings a New Generation of Work Trucks to Chicago
Ram’s latest generation of Heavy Duty truck is already a familiar site and needless to say, it has what it takes to compete with the newer Ford F-Series Super Duty and Chevrolet Silverado HD. At the Chicago Auto Show, the lineup grew bigger with the addition of the Chassis Cab model, which enables you to rebody the truck for many purposes.
The 2019 RAM 1500 Fires Back at GMC’s Multipro Tailgate With Something Simple And Useful
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.
Is RAM About to One-Up GMC’s MultiPro Tailgate With Something Even Better at the Chicago Auto Show?
RAM and GMC have been engaged in friendly bantering over the Twittersphere in the last couple of days, in part due to the latter’s new six-function MultiPro tailgate that’s available on the GMC Sierra. Well, as with Twitter beef goes, RAM is preparing its response to the MultiPro tailgate with the promise of a big reveal on February 7, 2019. What’s so special about that day? It’s the first media day of the 2019 Chicago Auto Show where RAM is expected to unveil its own state-of-the-art, too-clever-for-your-own-good tailgate technology. The full details of RAM’s “new” tailgate are still unclear, but the automaker is confident that it can upstage GMC’s new trick tailgate in front of the entire automotive world. Battle lines are drawn as we wait for RAM’s salvo in two days.
2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon
With more than seven decades of history to draw on, the Ram Power Wagon is well established as a big, badass, burly mother trucker of an off-roader. Originally based on Dodge’s 3/4-ton military service vehicles from World War II, the modern Power Wagon is far more luxury-laden and tech-heavy than its predecessors, but it keeps the same endlessly capable undercurrent as before with a host of off-road ready gear.
Why Does the Side Cargo Box on the 2020 Ram 2500 HD Have an Emergency Exit Latch? Who The Hell Would Get Stuck in There?
The new Dodge Ram 2500 Heavy Duty comes packed with cutting-edge tech and can tow more than its Ford and Chevy rivals. It also comes with two storage spaces on either side of the cargo bed. It’s not weird that you can lock these storage compartments up but what is weird is that they feature an emergency latch so Dodge thought that somebody could get stuck in there somehow.
Everybody’s been raving about the new Ram HD’s comprehensive offering of onboard safety systems as well as its top-of-the-line Cummins 6.7-liter diesel engine with 1,000 pound-feet of torque on tap. However, for this article, we’ll be looking at two narrow storage compartments placed above the wheels of the new Ram.
2019 Ram Heavy Duty Looks Menacing, Pumps out 1,000 Pound-Feet!
2018 Ram 1500 Big Horn Low Down Concept
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.
2019 Ram 1500 By Mopar
It’s been just a month since Ram debuted the brand-new 1500 pickup truck at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, and FCA is already offering a wide range of aftermarket parts and accessories. Showcased on a concept truck at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, these new accessories cover everything from the exterior and interior to the drivetrain and the chassis. Most of them will become available in a few months, so you can start planning a Moparized model if you’re not happy with the standard and optional Ram features.
Described as an "outdoor, sport-themed truck," this Mopar-specced vehicle sports a unique, slightly more aggressive exterior, a more upscale interior, and lift kit that turns it into a more capable off-road explorer. The parts and accessories are taken from a list of around 200 items that can be purchased from Mopar via FCA dealerships. That’s quite a big selection, unlike anything you get from the competition. Let’s have a closer look at some of these features in the review below.

All-New Ram 1500 Gets the Full Mopar Treatment
It’s been a busy 2018 for the all-new Ram 1500, hasn’t it? In the six weeks that we’ve had of 2018, we’ve seen the Ram 1500 make its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show, star in the most controversial ad in Super Bowl LII, and get decked out in full Mopar garb. The last of these happenings took place at the Chicago Auto Show where Ram and Mopar showed off the many ways you can customize your Ram 1500. From expected accessories to those that aren’t available on the market yet, there are over 200 Mopar accessories available for the Ram’s new heavy-duty pickup.
FCA Showcase Mopar Accessories for 2019 Ram 1500 in Chicago
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup hasn’t been debuted more than a month but Mopar already has accessories ready for the truck’s launch into showrooms. The long list includes wheels, tires, side steps, bed-mounted storage racks, and even performance accessories.
Mopar, Chrysler’s famed parts and accessories division that dates back to the 1920s, worked in-house with Ram’s engineers and designers to develop the accessories to work with the truck. Customers can buy the parts alongside their pickup at any Ram dealership and have them installed before final delivery with the price rolled into the vehicle financing. Best of all, the parts and accessories are covered under the Ram’s warranty. And since accessories like the high-flow air intake and cat-back exhaust are designed and installed by Ram, they do not void the truck’s warranty.
Of course, we’ve seen Mopar do this before. The most recent example is the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL. Mopar showcased over 200 parts at the 2017 SEMA show weeks before Jeep officially debut the Wrangler JL.

2019 Ram 1500
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.

Should Ram Resurrect The Ramcharger?
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is a wonderful improvement over the outgoing generation. Not only is it sleeker and more luxurious, its frame is stronger, its overall weight is down, and its drivetrain has been updated with mild hybrid systems in both the V-6 and V-8 engines. The truck will undoubtedly be very successful in competition with the also-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and the recently revised Ford F-150. But Ram is missing something – a full-size SUV based on its pickup.
Both Chevy and Ford have body-on-frame SUVs based on their half-ton pickups, and both have a long and rich history. In fact, the Chevy Suburban is the oldest automotive nameplate in existence. The Expedition is newer, having debuted in 1997, but over its 20 years, has made quite a name for itself. Ram, on the other hand, hasn’t had a truck-based, full-size SUV since 1993. That vehicle was the Ramcharger. Though only offered in a two-door model, it competed strongly against GM and Ford’s two-door SUVs, the Chevy Blazer and Ford Bronco – both of which were based on their respective half-ton trucks.
So, now that Ram has its all-new, fifth-generation truck, is it time the automaker resurrected the Ramcharger name? I say yes. Here’s my reasoning.

All-New 2019 Ram 1500 Steals The Show at Detroit
The 2019 Ram 1500 is making big waves at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show thanks to an all-new design that departs from years past, a swanky new interior with the segment’s first 12-inch touchscreen, a completely new frame, revised suspension designs, and a new mild hybrid system on both the 3.6-liter V-6 and 5.7-liter V-8.
Starting with the frame, Ram managed to cut weight by 100 pounds yet make it stronger thanks to its 98-percent composition of high-strength steel. Overall, nearly 225 pounds has been cut from the truck. Aluminum is used extensively in the unseen parts. The transmission crossmember, steering system, front suspension, and even the engine mounts are made from the lightweight yet strong material. The tailgate also uses an aluminum skin.
