Is this the 2016 Ram? (New renderings)

by David Zatz on

Today, artist Suzq044 sent new speculative renderings of the upcoming 2016 Ram 1500. She wrote that the main differences were making the nose more aerodynamic (not as tall, more rounded, not as long a bumper).

The 2016 Ram 1500 is due late this year, though it is a minor refresh and not expected to have earth-shattering changes. The Ram already has an eight-speed automatic transmission on all V6 models and some Hemis, a small diesel option which provides up to 29 mpg highway, and the highest rated telematics system, along with a unique suspension which provides normal payload and towing capacity along with uniquely car-like ride and handling.

The photo above was her “work in progress” and while she found it not quite as good as the final product, some may find the red border around the grille to lend some additional character. Depending on how easy to is to replace the grille, the company could make different grille styles an option, as it briefly did on the Chrysler 300 — not that there is any evidence to support the idea that they will.

The two trucks shown here carry (top) the influence of the Ram Rebel and Ram Laramie Limited, and of the rest of the Ram line — one showing no crosshair and the RAM name, and the other carrying both crosshair and ram’s-head logo. More on the 2016 Ram 1500.
