2019 Ram 1500 Caught by the Camera Without Its Camo

The 2019 Ram 1500 could make its debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show early next year.

Spy photographers came across a 2019 Ram 1500 completely undisguised after winds in Michigan blew the cover off the next-generation pickup truck. Sporting a slimmed down appearance up front, the headlights and front grille resemble what’s found on the Dodge Durango, while chrome work gives it a more upscale appearance. Our spy photographers point out the Ram’s badging has changed quite a bit compared to today’s model, with a metallic badge displaying the “1500” and “HEMI 5.7L” installed on the trailing edge of the hood, just above the front fender.

Overall, the truck has a bit more complex design compared to the current model, losing some of its overall smooth appearance for something more chiseled and athletic.

In the rear, Ram kept the styling of the new 1500 clean, and based on the mounting holes that are visible on the tailgate, you can expect “RAM” badging to be used on the rear fascia. The tail lights are a bit interesting too, tossing out the heavy LED features of today’s model for a more subtle effect with frosted white accents.

Expect more details on the 2019 Ram 1500 in the coming months, especially if it is set to debut at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.

    Seems to be more a pickup truck look of days ago and not the massive tractor-truck-semi look that built it's modern name and let the guy in front know something mean looking was behind him. The massive menacing looking vertical grille that was even on the older RAMS dating as far back as 2001 and even the first generation of the serious massive new look (1994-2001) seems to be gone.

    Another prime example of if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Sergio, who's sleeping at the wheel on this? Why ruin the looks of a good truck? You come back with the 1994 design going forward and now decide to kill it altogether with this?
