More 2013 Ram details leaked

by David Zatz on

Following revelations that Chrysler would equip the 2013 Ram 1500 with a new V6 and eight-speed automatic (V6 only), high-efficiency axle, and fuel-saving stop-start system (V6 only), with “aero slats” up front, an insider is now telling us that the 2013 Ram will also feature new headlights among other changes.

The new source confirmed the 8.4 inch touch-screen, and previously mentioned Dart-like 7-inch digital screen within the gauge cluster (likely as an option). The interior has been upgraded, new front and rear clips will replace the 2009 versions, keyless enter-and-go will be added, and a central locking system will be available to tie in the Rambox and tailgate locks with the key fob.

Overall, it appears that the Ram 1500 is getting a thorough refresh for the 2013 model year, and that Ram is planning to leapfrog (or at least match) Ford’s thriftiest F-150 in fuel efficiency.

Ram is Chrysler’s top seller. In 2011, Ram sold 244,763 pickups, compared with 122,460 Wranglers and 205,182 minivans. Ram pickup outsold the entire Chrysler brand. [2013 Ram 1500 page]
