Peek inside the 2019 Ram 1500

by David Zatz on

Were you wondering what the 2019 Ram 1500 looks like? We’ve gotten a sneak peek at the grille and interior of what appears to be a fairly high-end model, based on the real wood.

That grille seems to be begging for a word in the middle — but isn’t it too large for “RAM”? Perhaps “Ram 1500” or “Ram Laramie” will show up there — perhaps not. This is almost certainly not a “final product,” especially with the large rectangle in the middle of the grille (even if it is masking some sensors).

This front end design is rather different from any of our renderings, particularly around the headlights. This might be a heavy duty model, which would explain some of it; but you can still see the insiders’ tales, such as “chrome going into the headlights,” as accurate.

The interior, unsurprisingly, keeps what has worked for Ram in the past — gauges-within-gauges, a huge trip computer between the gauges (bigger than 7 inches, we’d say), a well-designed steering wheel, and generous use of wood. You can see the new, blockier Ram logo on the steering wheel.

The large knob isn’t used for shifting, as far as we can tell, but for changing RWD-4×4 modes. Climate controls are similar to past setups — pleasant to look at, with a good tactile response and high ease-of-use. The stereo appears to be an 8.4, but with the latest screen styling.

We’re not sure if these are really production intent, and if so, how close they are to being final; but they do show fairly attractive and original styling, which is a good sign.
