2019 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Edition is for leather lovers

We first saw the 2019 Ram 1500 pickup truck during the recent 2018 Detroit Auto Show where it made its very first debut, and as early as now, it already has a first special edition - the 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Edition. This version comes loaded with lots of leather to make the largest biker gang jealous with its tan covered cabin.

Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand, said that the all new 2019 Ram Laramie Longhorn luxury truck will not be forced to endure any compromises. It gives customers everything they want, from strength, durability, technology, and efficiency.

When looking at it from the exterior, the luxury pickup now comes with a new grille and wheels, LED headlights and tail lights, and matching paint in Walnut Brown in either two-tone or monotone finish, making it so easy to find your truck in the parking lot.

2019 Ram 1500 is lighter, safer, stronger, and more stylish than predecessor

For those of you who are looking to get a new pickup truck, you might want to consider the 2019 Ram 1500, as the facelifted model not only has been made lighter, but is also powerful, safer, and more capable.

First of all, it is now 225 pounds lighter than its predecessor, because the tailgate is now made of aluminum, while the frame is now made of high strength steel. Unlike the Ford F-Series, the Ram is not getting an all aluminum body just yet. That is because steel is still needed for areas that need long term durability, says head of Ram, Jim Morrison.

Another area that has been greatly improved would be the truck’s aerodynamics. Its overall drag coefficient has decreased by nine percent to 0.357. This is the result of the standard active grille shutters, higher bed side rails, and of course, a lower suspension. It even comes with an electrically deployable aero spoiler that extends down from the bumper when the car hits 30-35 miles per hour. If in case the spoiler hits something on the road, there is no need to worry as it has the one-way clutch linkage. Trucks with air suspension also lower about 0.6 inch at higher speeds.

Ram’s aging full-sized pickup bids adieu with 1500 Hydro Blue Sport special edition

Soon, the current generation of the Ram 1500 will be saying goodbye. Nonetheless, it will all end on a sweet note as the American truck maker wouldn’t let the vaunted full-size pickup truck go without a bang. Thus, Ram is introducing the special-edition 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport.

This isn't the first time the Ram offered a vividly colored special edition of the Ram 1500 Sport pickup truck. In late 2016, the American truck maker created and offered the Ram 1500 Ignition Orange special edition. This year alone, Ram introduced Sublime (Green) and Copper Sport limited-edition trucks. Of course, the Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport won't be the last special edition that Ram would offer, but it would be the final model in the 2017 model year.

Wrapped in water-like blue exterior paint finish, the 2018 Ram 1500 Hydro Blue Sport is laden with a number of special features as standard. These include a black-decaled Sport performance hood, a new body-colored Sport grille with black billet inserts and black R-A-M letter badge. Other special features include the flat black exterior body-side and tailgate badging. This black body badging is complemented elegantly by black bezel projector headlamps up front and tail lights employing LED technology on the rear.

Nowadays, it is rather inevitable that luxury pickups have been quickly making rounds, and they have served as a significant asset for Ram ever since the brand separated itself from Dodge. Ram presently has various luxury trims including the Long Horn, Laramie and Limited produced among the 1500, 2500 and 3500 models and now it looks like they will introduce another vehicle to their line-up. According to the Fiat-Chrysler owned truck manufacturer, these trucks will be given a new range topping trim labelled the Limited Tungsten Edition.

2018 Ram Limited Tungsten Edition will be added to the already stellar line-up of Ram. The ultra swanky truck will be offered on the 1500, 2500 and 3500 in the 3rd quarter of this year and it will fetch around $55,120 for the high-end trim on the 1500. The newest edition offers more awesome luxurious novelties onto the recent range-topping Limited trim. We can recognize these premium units by the outer shell that will don a dark chrome grille with RAM engraving. For the trim and badges, there are metallic accents to match them.

The bumpers, door handles, mirror caps and running boards reflect the body color while its headlights flaunt the black surrounds from the Sport unit. Adding a final touch to the exterior enhancements are the satin-finish variants of the Limited wheels. Buyers can choose to have the Tungsten Edition in Bright White, Bright Silver Metallic, Delmonico Red Pearl, Brilliant Black Crystal, Granite Crystal Metallic, True Blue Pearl or Pearl White. However, the Maximum Steel Metallic will only be offered on the 1500. The Tungsten Edition's interior is where the magic begins.

As you probably have noticed, the Ram 1500 Rebel is the meaner and more aggressive version of the Ram 1500. But there is a version of the Ram 1500 Rebel that could make the standard Ram 1500 look angelic – the Black Edition. Of course, the Ram 1500 Rebel Black Edition isn’t available yet at your nearest dealership as it is was just unveiled formally at the 2017 North American International Auto Show (also known to many as Detroit Auto Show).

Basically, the Ram 1500 Rebel Black Edition is a more intense version of the mean-looking Ram 1500. There are no improvements or enhancements made on the power levels of this badass pickup truck. It is just that its looks more aggressive both on the exterior and the interior. Just like any Ram 1500 Rebel, the Black Edition comes with a new front grille design – distinctly differently from a typical Ram 1500 – with a prominent billet silver “RAM” letter badge.

Its rear end comes with the “RAM” stamped tailgate, a rear bumper with flared cutouts around the dual chrome-tipped tailpipes, and taillights with black bezels. The off-road capability of the Ram 1500 Rebel Black Edition is highlighted by its 33-inch all-terrain tires, factory lift, skid plates, tow hooks and Bilstein shocks. It also features an exclusive air suspension that allows it to boast of a higher ride.

Back in February of this year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) introduced a new and improved 2017 Ram Power Wagon. The current version of the Power Wagon is snout-faced and looks nothing like its labelmates but the upcoming version is a different story and is, take note, a tad more expensive.

Based off the same 2500 model as that of the outgoing car, the 2017 Ram Power Wagon looks more appealing than ever before. The upcoming version will receive various interior and exterior trim changes that will surely attract off-roading enthusiasts.

For a $51,695 MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) – excluding the $1,320 destination fee – the 2017 Ram Power Wagon will receive a redesigned grille, front and rear bumper, wing mirrors and tailgate as well as new seat upholstery with a tire-tread pattern.

With the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show just hanging around the corner (scheduled on Nov. 18 to 27), quite a number of carmakers from all over the world are presenting their newest concepts and production vehicles as well as anything that relates to the auto industry. Of course, United States-based auto companies and brands would not let this big event go by without presenting something of their own – and the Ram brand is nonetheless more than eager to show off its offerings.

Just days before the LA Auto Show, Ram is previewing a special pair of its Rebel pickup truck – the Ram 1500 Rebel Ignition Orange Sport as well as the Ram 1500 Mojave Sand. While both the Ignition Orange Sport and Mojave Sand are derived from the 2017 Ram 1500, these special edition trucks can easily be told apart from their conventional counterparts.

This means that apart from some modifications on the exterior and on the interior of the 1500 Orange Sport and the 1500 Mojave Sand, these special editions are basically the same underneath. Available powertrains remain to be the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine providing 305 hp of output and 269 pound-feet of torque and the 5.7L HEMI V8 Engine delivering 375 hp of output and 410 lb-ft of torque.

Ram Truck moves to enhance its 3/4-ton segment with new and significant upgrades on its Ram 2500 4x4 Off-Road Package. Pickup trucks, which are naturally meant for off-road driving, are highly exposed to mud, snow, dirt, and other awful road conditions compared to other vehicles.

As much as 35 percent of pickup trucks are used in off-road environments for work and leisure. The new and improved Off-Road Component Package was made for better delivery and performance to withstand challenging roads.

According to FCA-North America Head of Ram Truck Brand Bob Hegbloom, truck users are looking for those off-road vehicles that can offer as much functionality as they can and Ram trucks are perfect to meet those needs.

Key features include the hull-descent control, which allows the driver to descend steep terrain automatically without the use of a brake. The feature had only been available on the conventional off-roader Power Wagon.

According to Ram Brand Head Bob Hegbloom, the car maker will employ the in-demand off-road packages not only in its heavy-duty series but to "every single cab", "every single powertrain" in all trims and colors.

When Ram ranked third in the latest Consumer Report’s reliability survey, its brand chief already knew who to blame. Ram, a brand of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, ranked third from bottom partly because of its cockpit technology, according to brand chief Bob Hegbloom.

He noted that the average age of a pickup truck is 11 years old, adding that Ram integrated technologies into its cockpit system with “an individual that may not have had a new vehicle in 10- plus years.” Four of FCA’s brands -- Dodge, Fiat, Jeep and Ram -- all lurked in the bottom four of the rankings.

When Consumer Reports surveyed owners of 2014 model vehicles, it found out that balky touch-screens as well as other cockpit-related technology gremlins drew the most complaints among the 17 categories. Other brands earning the most complaints were Cadillac, Ford and Honda.
