2019 Ram HD Teased, Promises To Be Most Capable Heavy Duty Truck Ever

Ram introduced the 2019 1500 at last year’s North American International Auto Show and now the company is turning its attention to the Ram 2500 and 3500.

Set to debut on January 14th, the all-new trucks promise to be the “most capable heavy duty pickup[s] ever.” The company is keeping specifications under wraps, but the fine print suggests the Ram HDs will have best-in-class towing, payload and torque.

While there’s word on numbers, we can expect the trucks to improve upon the figures produced by their predecessors. When properly equipped, the 2018 Ram HDs can carry up to 7,390 lbs (3,352 kg) and tow up to 31,210 lbs (14,156 kg). This impressive capability is due, in part, to the available 6.7-liter Cummings six-cylinder turbodiesel engine which produces up to 385 hp (287 kW / 390 PS) and 930 lb-ft (1,259 Nm) of torque.

Getting back to the new trucks, the 2019 Ram HDs will follow in the footsteps of the Ram 1500 but adopt a unique grille and restyled headlights. The trucks also have a bulging hood and tow mirrors which feature spot lights that illuminate the ground. Additional styling details are hard to make out, but the videos give us a glimpse of the steel bed.

Moving into the cabin, drivers can expect a more luxurious and high-tech interior which echoes that of its lighter duty cousin. The videos don’t provide a lot of details, but we can see the company’s massive 12-inch Uconnect infotainment system. The truck also has a large digital display in the instrument cluster which is positioned between two analog gauges.

Details will be released on Monday and the 2019 Ram HDs will be built at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Michigan.

    Wow. what a big grill. XD

    I will be looking to replace my 2015 GMC Crew Cab Long Bed 3500 HD in around 2021, never gave the RAM 3500 a look because of its less then stellar interior and it’s Made In Mexico Label. But now with RAM’S class leading interior, Made In Michigan Label, and the All Conquering Cummings I6, it will now be on my list along with the GMC 3500 Sierra.

      both are perfect products and none of them would be regret for you.
      new ram interior is a huge win for sure, but also gmc is looking like a boss.

        No, I have no regrets in regards to my 2015 GMC, I got it Jan 17, 2015. Has a few upgrades to up the power, Baer Brakes and heavy tow bar. My 4 son’s, son inlaw, his dad and I have put 85,383 miles on it, and it’s been absolutely reliable.

        Every 5 to 6 years I get a new truck, my 2010 Chevy 3500 went to my sisters husband and my 2015 will likely go to my 17yr old son. So 2020 or 21 will be when I update, either one will be on the list, reason I omitted the Ford, well I just don’t like their Generic Exterior and they import their diesel engines, unlike GM (Duramax-Ohio) and Ram (Cummins-Indiana) who source their engines domestically.

    It’s just a facelift for this model. Not bad looking though.

    I wish it got the new Ram body on the 1500, and not the old Ram body of the previous generation.
