Chicago to see Mopar-ized 2019 Ram

by David Zatz on

Mopar has over 200 parts and accessories for the 2019 Ram 1500, and is taking the opportunity to show them off at the massive Chicago Auto Show.

The Flame Red 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn Sport 4×4 has a two-inch Mopar lift kit for extra clearance, allowing oversize, large-tread 35-inch tires. Six-lug 18-inch off-road beadlock-capable wheels, with matching trim rings, keep the tires on the rims when aired down for off-road grip and traction. Black wheel flares both defend the tires and show them off.

Mopar Ram Rack

The bed has a preview of a new, unique Mopar part — the Ram Rack, first shown as a prototype on the 2016 Ram Macho Power Wagon concept, and designed to secure large gear. The rear Ram Rack is adjustable, and can slide all the way up to the front Ram Rack. It mounts to all the available production bed utility rails.

Body-length Mopar cast aluminum running boards provide a skid-resistant stepping surface for drivers who run through the mud. For getting into the bed more easily, a Mopar articulating step can be folded down.

The new Mopar “Ram Airflow” cold-air intake fits the 395-horsepower Hemi V8; scheduled for availability later this year, it is compatible with all 2019 Ram 1500 hoods and works in concert with the cat-back exhaust, which is made from AL409 stainless steel. The concept also has 5-inch dual exhaust tips with dual wall thickness, fitting snugly to the bumper.

Other touches include matching hood stripes, blacked-out emblems, front tow hooks, and a Mopar logo hitch plug. Inside, the usual Katzkin seats have embroidered ram heads; new floor mats have deeper channels and sturdier sidewalls; and brushed aluminum sill guards show off the Ram name.

As with Dodge cars, buyers can choose their Mopar accessories before their truck is made, via the Mopar Custom Shop; anything purchased and installed this way is included on the Monroney label (for better insurance coverage), built into the financing package, and covered by the original warranty.

The Ram-and-Mopar press event at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show is scheduled for February 9, 2018, at 10 am Central Time (11 am EST), and will be livecast.
