We like taking a look at what is coming soon for the Ram lineup of trucks. It’s fun to see the concept trucks that are coming and what all they might have to offer! Today we want to take a look at what we hope will soon be coming to All Star Dodge Ram near Ellisville.
The next generation of Ram 1500 pickup trucks, coded DT, is likely to have some lighter materials accompanying the usual steel, to increase the fuel economy and load capacity. Some models may gain some cab space, as well. It’s scheduled to go into production in early January 2018, as a 2019 model, at the Sterling Heights assembly plant — a move from the traditional Warren plant.
The new Rams are supposed to have grilles that are not quite as tall, so they can improve their aerodynamics. The huge Rebel tailgate letters may be replaced by the Ram logo or smaller letters; but the “big rig” styling will continue. The crosshair is said to be returning in force, with Dodge giving it up instead of Ram. Automotive News wrote that the headlights will be smaller and integrated into the grille, with horizontal fog lights put into the bumper; they also projected a flatter center console to provide more space.
“The Pentastar upgrade with direct injection should boost power to 310-320 hp, with higher economy and better low end torque. A forced-induction straight-six is expected around 2020; and there’s even talk of a four cylinder turbo, around 290 hp, as an economy option for fleets (and to get the “highway mpg” advertising number).”-allpar.com
In the mean time, take a look at the current Ram 1500 that is on display at All Star. We are sure that you will love it!
