The RAM 1500 will be debuting this week at the New York Auto show with new engine choices, a new transmission and a new airbag suspension system. In preparation for the event, RAM is releasing five teaser shots, and today’s is the third in the series.

This newest teaser shows us what is probably a piece of the front bumper, but it is quite indistinct and could be just about anything. The RAM logo appears as a 2-D decal, unlike the 3-D RAM logo we have known from the past. Whether the logo is due for replacement on the new truck, we can’t be sure.

The biggest RAM announcements are all mechanical, as the truck will now be offered with Chrysler’s Pentastar V6, along with an eight-speed transmission. The eight-speed is initially only going to be offered with the V6, but it likely won’t be long until you can get it mated to all of RAM’s engine options. The new RAM will also be getting an air bag suspension system sourced from the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

The second of four teaser images for the upcoming 2013 RAM 1500 has been released, hinting at some sort of rotating knob, perhaps infotainment related.

The first teaser clearly showed off the grille of the new 2013 RAM 1500, but this image is a little bit more obscure. The RAM 1500 will make its debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show sporting the Chrysler Group’s new 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Two more teaser images will be on their way before the truck’s debut on April 4th.
