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?

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?

It’s not a trunk as such but a baby could still probably fit inside

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 1500 Big Horn

2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn

Bigger, lighter, and a dose of eTorque under the hood

Ram just dropped the new fifth-generation 1500 pickup truck for the 2019 model year, and it’s looking better than ever. Redesigned from the ground up, the 1500 once again hits dealers in a number of different trim levels and configurations. Higher in the range, the pickup can be had in all manner of upscale luxury and features, but the Big Horn, offered as the second model above the entry-level Tradesman, offers everything you need and nothing you don’t. Read on for all the good stuff this pickup has to offer.

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.

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.

Ram 2500/3500 Longhorn Ram Rodeo Edition

Ram 2500/3500 Longhorn Ram Rodeo Edition

Essentially a new range-topping model

Designed for the hard-working enthusiast that needed a large truck to haul and tow stuff around, the Ram 2500 and 3500 are now offered with enhanced comfort and luxury features in Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims. Ram is now taking things up a notch with the Longhorn Ram Rodeo Edition, which adds a few extra features and technologies.

Based on the Laramie Longhorn trim, the Rodeo edition adds extra equipment you’d usually have to pay for or get as standard on the more expensive Limited trim. These add-ons enhance styling, making the Longhorn look like a Limited version, and add practicality inside the cabin through trailering technology. Engines remain standard, but the air suspension enables self-leveling when carrying goods or hauling a trailer. Find out more about it below.

2019 Ram 1500 Rebel 12

It seems like Ram has been rebellious with the Rebel 12

Gone are the days when trucks were designed for one of two things– off-roading or being put to work, both of which meant there were next to no creature comforts whatsoever. Ram has announced the 2019 Ram Rebel 1500 12 edition, and it feels like nothing short of a luxurious truck. Ram has a lot of new technology offerings along with its natural rough-and-tough characteristics. Has Ram hit the bullseye with the new Rebel 12?

Special edition pickup gets an exclusive paint finish

Vanity has never been one of Ram’s strong suits, but the hulking pickup brand is making an exception with the launch of the Ram 2500 Power Wagon Mojave Sand Edition. Essentially an aesthetics package, the 2500 Power Wagon Mojave Sand Edition takes advantage of the Mojave Sand beige color, which has become the fastest-selling shade on the Ram Rebel. Now, the color is appearing for the first time on a Ram Heavy Duty model. Only 1,500 units will be built, with each model priced at $54,830.

Ram to Build a Body-on-Frame Midsize Truck; Will be Built at Toledo Jeep Plant

The FCA family bond is so strong that they not just share the vehicles, but also the manufacturing units

Ram has been serving customers with a big appetite and big pockets. Post discontinuation of the Dakota, the smallest pickup truck in its lineup has been the Ram 1500. Given how the market trend has been changing lately, it is essential for Ram to slot a truck at entry-level to compete against the Ford Ranger and Chevy Colorado and, after a 7-year exile, they have exactly done that. On Friday, FCA announced that a new truck will be entering the lineup below the 1500 by 2022.

2019 Ram 1500 Off-Road Edition by GME

2019 Ram 1500 Off-Road Edition by GME

An American pickup with German tuning prowess is a sight to see

German Motors & Engineering has released a tuning package for the Ram 1500, called the “Off-Road Edition.” The package gives the American pickup truck a comprehensive overhaul, covering the exterior, engine, and suspension. GME’s objective is to give the RAM 1500 the kind of off-road versatility you normally don’t see in a car in Germany. To that extent, the tuner did as good a job as you’d expect from a company that knows what it’s doing.

2019 Ram 1500 eTorque

2019 Ram 1500 eTorque

Ram 1500 eTorque is the most fuel-efficient full-size truck in America save for diesels

While I am not convinced that fuel efficiency is the decisive factor when choosing between trucks, RAM did make the biggest step in the fuel efficiency direction with the new 2019 Ram 1500 eTorque. We saw it some time ago, but the EPA wasn’t ready to publish fuel-economy values for the trucks equipped with the new technology. In truth, I can only describe as a mild hybrid.

Now, the EPA has revealed the numbers for the V-6 eTorque and V-8 eTorque Ram 1500 and the numbers are good. With two-wheel drive, a 3.6-liter V-6 engine, and the eTorque system, the 2019 Ram 1500 can return 20 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined. The V-8 powered model, on the other hand, is a bit more thirsty, but still, it will return 17/23/19, respectively. Bear in mind; it uses a big 5.7-liter, V-8.

The next-generation Ram 1500 will still have company in the form of the old head

Ram is the latest in a long line of automakers to sell a new generation model alongside the old generation model it just replaced. Don’t get confused, then, if you see the next-generation Ram 1500 sitting alongside the Ram 1500 Classic inside Ram dealerships all over the country. Unlike the next-gen model, the 1500 Classic is being packaged as a no-frills option that would-be customers can opt to get if they’re not willing to pay extra for all the new goodies that are available on the new 1500.
