The 2019 Ram 2500 should come significantly different compared to current model. Although we don’t have official confirmation, it is pretty much for sure that company works on next generation of these legendary truck, which are in production for more than 35 years. As it usually happens, Light Duty 1500 will come first. This model will come right after. We expect complete redesign, which will include plenty of significant changes. Although some believe that new generation of this truck will comes already next year, we believe that 2018 sounds more realistic. In any case, 2019 2500 should be completely new and much better than current model in many aspects.
2019 Ram 2500 redesign
We expect a complete redesign of 2019 Ram 2500. This will include plenty of significant changes. First of all, new truck will get new platform. We still don’t known exact details, but we have some predictions about how next generation will look like. Current version is present since 2009, and we can easily agree that it is pretty much outdated, compared to main rivals which came completely new recently. So, we should expect significant improvements from 2019 Ram 2500. When it comes to platform, many experts predict that Chrysler won’t go for such radical changes, as we saw on new Ford F Series, for example. This company will rely more on conventional and proven technologies and you should not expect so drastic weight savings. On the other side, we will see a truck with proven strength, reliability and those sort of things.
2019 Ram 2500 engine
While chassis and similar things probably won’t features significant improvements, we expect that 2019 Ram 2500 will come with significantly improved powertrain. Current model comes with three engines in offer. There are two gasoline and one diesel unit in offer. We don’t know exact destiny of these engines, but some of them will surely carry over. However, expect significant improvements of these units, in terms of power, economy and overall efficiency. When it is about transmission, we believe that company will continue with the proven heavy duty 6-speed automatic, although we could also see some experiments with new 8-speed automatic, which should come in new light duty model.
2019 Ram 2500 release date
It is still hard to predict when new 2019 Ram 2500 will come. Some sources suggest that new model could come already in early 2018. However, second half of year sounds more realistic.
