2019 Ram 1500 Revealed

http://www.autonews.com/article/2017...-face-for-2019









Where is the "Ram"?

Glad I have my 4th Gens, get one while you can. No truck is safe from the ugly stick now...

I think the styling is a brave move. I'm personally tired of the "He Man" macho styling that every brand is trying to sport right now.

Yeah I agree I like the look of my 4th generation Bighorn model better (Black Truck Pic). I don't care much for the look of the current limited edition especially the tailgate I think it's to ostentatious with that giant RAM emblem and the front grill just looks to busy.

I think the front end of this new Ram, along with every other truck is too busy. Nothing about it sets it apart.

Even if it has best in class truck specs, I don't see myself owning one.

Argue if you want, the current Ram is the best looking truck. Its clean design flows and looks classic like a proper truck, RAM tailgate badge and nostril grill aside. The current Ram increased sales by 3% this year so far, 9 year old design notwithstanding.

Second best would be a properly optioned GMC Sierra.

Huge mistake by FCA...

Thank God they are getting away from the tractor trailer look. Keeping my fingers crossed Ford will follow suit. I could not believe when Dodge first changed the look and Ford followed suit!

Its time for a change present truck is looking tired and can hardly tell the difference in model years. 2 years ago I was considering buying one but I was looking for a body change did not happen so passed. Limited addition looks good but to pricey. Later RJD

That is not the *Official* release, TFL had those same pictures a month ago.
It may be the finished product, but with the official launch not scheduled until January it may still change.... I hope..
