The 2019 Ram 1500 is showing off its production grille, tow mirrors, and tail lights.

Spy photographers have caught the next-generation pickup testing yet again as it gets ready for its unveiling at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show early next year. Unlike its competitors, the new Ram 1500 will keep its steel body, but don’t be surprised to see certain components like its hood and doors use aluminum to shed weight. Expect to see coil springs with optional air suspension to continue being offered, while a larger passenger cab and new tailgate options will join the lineup.

Rumors suggest a hybrid variant and four-cylinder turbocharged engines are possibilities for the new Ram 1500, along with a more powerful V8 and even a Ford Raptor competitor.

    Tell me something. If it isn't impossible, would it be a good idea to have a "sliding hide-a-way" tailgate? Then instead of trying to arrange some kind of extra step into the bed out of a fixed tailgate, one can be mounted, or come standard on the bumper. Hahaha! Yes, I am an old man now, and the last time I just tried to jump into the bed, I kinda missed, hit both knees, and ended up writhing in pain on the concrete outside my garage! Let's not do that again!

    Is it just me, or does the front end look too much like a new Ford?
