New Ram 1500 Will Debut In January

During Fiat Chrysler Automobiles second-quarter earnings call CEO Sergio Marchionne used the platform to confirm a couple product introductions. The chief executive confirmed plans to reveal an all-new Ram 1500 pickup truck in January at the North American International Auto Show.

In addition to the new Ram, Marchionne also confirmed rumors that broke last week stating the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will debut in November. This debut will likely occur at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Between these two introductions, at least some of FCA’s blockbusters for the industry’s biggest shows are already known.

The 2019 Ram–known as the DT–is expected to carry an evolutionary design from today’s pickup. For the benefit of increased aerodynamics, the iconic Ram grille is expected to be lower, while headlights are also expected to shrink. That said, a bigger-than-life appearance is still expected since that’s what sells in the half-ton truck market.

Ram is expected to deploy a direct-injected V-6 as the base engine in the 2019 Ram; the first time the brand has used a DI V-6. Updated HEMI V-8’s are also a no-brainer, while a hybrid model is also rumored.

Given the popularity of trucks and SUVs in today’s market, it should come as no surprise FCA opted to confirm two of its most popular products to investors.

    How new will this Ram be?

    Is it a significant refresh like the 2016 Silverado or a completely new generation like the 2016 F150 or the 2019 Silverado?
