As different configurations of the next-generation 2019 Ram 1500 go through testing procedures for final engineering signoffs, our spy shooters are beginning to capture more details about the half-ton pickup truck. The current Ram 1500 offers a few class-exclusive features such as the RamBox cargo management system, four-corner air suspension and coils springs that look likely to carry over into the new truck. Of course, Chevrolet and GMC will have all-new half tons as well, so this should get interesting as we move into 2018.
Here's what we've heard from our spy shooters:
"While we've literally blown the cover on nearly every element of the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 pickup, one of its former class-exclusive design traits — the RamBox — has been unconfirmed until now. We just got our first ironclad visual piece of evidence that the RamBox bed design will continue in the fully redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 trucks.
"The telltale thick bedrails and the narrow pickup bed are clearly on display on this prototype truck, which was testing without any tonneau cover or bed camouflage to obscure the RamBox design. Our closeup shot shows that, once again, the RamBox design eliminates the intrusion of the wheel wells into the truck bed. The cut lines delineating the edges of the RamBox storage bins are clearly visible on the bedrails. There's now no question that one of the Ram's truly unique design features will soldier on in this all-new pickup due out in 2018."
