We've gotten another look at the revamped 2014 Ram HD pickup. This time it's the Ram 2500 crew cab.
These latest shots give us a solid peek through the camouflage to see the redesigned LED headlights, along with high-intensity-discharge projector beams. The grille will likely get some aesthetic tweaks. The taillights have been redesigned, and even though they're covered on this prototype, we can clearly see some new LED treatments illuminating through the camouflage.
Changes to the Ram 2500 will be more than skin deep, with a significantly upgraded front control arm clearly visible under the vehicle. That same beefy control arm was spied on the massive 2014 Ram 3500 HD dual-rear-wheel prototype that we caught last week. Initially, it seemed that the new fortified underpinnings might be reserved for heavier-grade pickups like the 3500, but the fact that the same upgrade is being used on the 2500 is interesting. It appears that the new Ram HDs will get a thorough overhaul across the entire range of models and specifications.
If there was any doubt about this prototype's identity, there's this rather self-explanatory piece of paper taped to the Ram's rear window that reads: "2014HD PROTO, Build # KD42-11948, Vin # EA111948, Priority #7." It looks like someone forgot to remove the identifying signage when the truck left the pilot build station.
Some have speculated that the new Ram HDs might have a heavy-duty airbag suspension option, like in the 2013 Ram 1500, but we haven't seen any indications so far.
