2019 Ram 1500While the new 2019 Ram 1500 hasn’t even been officially shown yet, there are certain details starting to leak out about the new truck. On top of this, there’s a lot of speculation on what is coming with the 2019 model year version of this popular vehicle. Before the Detroit Auto Show big reveal, take a look at what people are saying about the Ram 1500 and what is expected to come.

Headlights and Taillights

One of the new aspects of the 2019 Ram 1500 that has been spotted is a re-designed front. The headlights on the new Ram are a much thinner strip than ever before. The LED strip lights are also lower in the headlight housing, giving a sleet and stylish look to the truck. The rear lights have also been spotted and are more distinct than in previous model versions. There are expected to be two LED strips in the taillight housing, giving a bold look to the rear of the truck.

More Space

According to some spy photography taken of the redesigned Ram 1500, the new model year truck is expected to have a larger wheelbase than previous. This is a huge benefit for many fans of the Ram 1500 because it will offer more cabin space as well as more cargo space. The truck also features a raised waistline helping improve the overall look and feel of the space inside the vehicle.

Split Tailgate

One of the most innovative features expected to be released with the 2019 Ram 1500 is a split tailgate option. While there is little to no information on exactly how the tailgate will be split, it is an interesting idea, offering a lot of possibility to those hauling cargo in their truck bed. One speculation is that the split tailgate option allows for extra cargo space on both bedsides, making it easier to haul and load anything. While this is expected to be an option on the new Ram, it is not expected to be a standard feature.

Upgraded Interior

The inside of the Ram 1500 is currently expected to undergo the most drastic changes. The most popular trims should get a facelift, with different upholstery materials and more interior options. The truck will likely feature the most recent version of the Ram Uconnect infotainment system, which gives you access to information about your vehicle to your smartphone, a 3G wifi hotspot, and the option for SiriusXM Satellite Radio. The instrument cluster has been redesigned and the steering wheel now offers a modern feel to the interior.

Lighter Build

A final speculation on the Ram 1500 is that it is created from lighter materials than ever before. This allows for better fuel economy as well as a higher load capacity, especially in EcoDiesel vehicles.
