New Ram 1500

Hereís a look at the new 2019 Ram 1500.

From the research Iíve done and talking to certain people in the industry the 2500/Cummins will not change anytime soon.

Iím still on the fence with this one. Itís gone towards the GM front end. I also donít like the Badges being sunken into the hood. I like to remove all the emblems on my vehicles. I do like the hood though in general.

What do you guys think?Click image for larger version

I like the color, not really in to the front end

The pic is merely a artist's rendering, google '2019 RAM' and you'll find plenty of spy photos. Or wait a couple weeks, the Detroit auto show starts this weekend ....

Artist rendering or not it looks identical to all the google pics... Point being, itís 99% what itíll look like.

One thing I have against RAM is the rust. Have they gotten any better ?? A co-workers 2015 is already developing rust on back wheel wells and corners by rear bumper.

They all rust just in different places. Chevy/GM the door sills rust, on the Ford the lower rear corner of the cab will rust. I have a friend that owns a body shop and this is what he has told me. He sees all types of vehicles for rust repair right after winter.

My 2008 Dodge is just starting to rust thru the rear pickup bed wheel well fenders. I caught mine in time and have fixed this issue.

Dodge came out with rear plastic wheel wells to address the problem on the 02-08 trucks because of their bad design if you don't already have them. My '02 was just starting to show through as I apparently didn't rinse that area out on the backside enough while washing.

rustcheck it or Krown if youre near the Canadian border.

i must admit, i like it, but it is strikingly close to a Tundra...again.

i love my 2017 ram, but the new GMC 2500 and f250 are very nice design wise. moreso in my opinion than the ram...but ive got the cummins...they dont.
