Fiat Chrysler has unveiled the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star edition at the 2018 Dallas Auto Show.

It may not be the most exciting special edition Ram has come out with, but the Lone Star has long been the truck brand’s best-selling truck in Texas for some time. For this new 2019 model year truck, the Lone Star comes with chrome front and rear bumpers, chrome door handles, a bright grille surround, 18-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps, a 60/40 split rear bench seat and a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel. Customers will also have the option to spruce up the exterior a bit with monochromatic Sport and Black appearance packages. Further setting the 2019 Ram 1500 apart from standard versions of the truck is a ‘Lone Star’ badged tailgate and Lone Star interior badging.

    ...and since your going to call this a Texas Edition, make sure it has a A/C system that will make you feel like you're in Greenland in the Winter. Also, make sure there is a cabin filter to keep that Texas dust out of the evaporator so it won't be a mud block in a couple years!
