2019 Ram Heavy Duty Design

The exterior of the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty truck lineup have been redesigned to give you a more modern look & feel. Each trim offers specific interlocking design cues to match its unique style, which comes from combining different elements to blend seamlessly with each other.

Halogen, full LED/reflector and full LED projector headlamps are offered up front as well, with the latter providing the adaptive front-lighting system to help you see better when turning.

Other new and returning exterior design cues include:

  • Drawn body-side character line flowing from the front fender to the cab doors
