Publications Trucks.com (photos at the link) has provided us the first glimpse at the 2019 Ram interior. Despite being a totally redesigned version of today’s Ram 1500, the interior appears to be shaping up as an evolved version of the current one.
While the dash panel in the spy shots is largely covered with a black cloth, the instrument panel is uncovered. This small viewpoint confirms Ram will utilize Fiat Chrysler’s latest 8.4-inch UConnect touchscreen display, which comes as little surprise given it is already found in high-end Ram trim levels. Additionally, the controls below the screen appear to be redesigned and generally more modern in appearance than today’s.
More modernness seems to be an overarching trend in the 2019 Ram interior. The center stack shape is cleaned up with fewer lines and angles; a more modern take on today’s. Meanwhile, the Ram’s current aging steering wheel has been swapped out with–you guessed it–a cleaned up version that harkens back to today’s.
Ram has also redesigned the gauge cluster, but retained the sometimes-controversial electronic gear selector knob on the dash.
FCA is slated to reveal the 2019 Ram 1500 at next year’s North American International Auto Show in January.
