According to the FCA plans, after the major update of the 2018 Ram 1500, they’re going to release the updated Heavy Duty Ram truck. Both the 2019 Ram 2500 and 2019 Ram 3500 will be released by 2018 calendar year. Although there are sources that claim the new Ram HD is going to be redesigned, the automaker is clear that this is going to be just a major update. If we bear in mind the scale of the Ram 1500’s major update – scheduled for 2017 calendar year – the 2019 Ram 2500/3500 will be substantially revised.
Purview of Changes
Of course, a brand new generation of the Ram Heavy Duty trucks won’t be released soon. After all the Jeep improvements and the major update of the most popular Ram truck, light-duty Ram 1500, they’re going to release the 2019 Ram 2500/3500 with a range of changes they already implemented on those models. It’s true that the major update won’t change the essence of the truck, but it’s far from a modest list of superficial changes.
2019 Ram 2500/3500 Will Improve Its Towing and Hauling
It’s hard to anticipate all the changes at this point, but it’s sure that the 2019 Ram 2500/3500 will have improved towing and hauling. Thanks to the engine changes, the heavy duty truck will have better specs. It’s questionable how much they’re going to improve the truck’s EPA fuel economy, but there’s no doubt the updated engine lineup will add a couple of miles per gallon.
Exterior and Interior Changes
If they follow the same plan they developed for the 2018 Ram 1500, we’re going to see some exterior styling changes, as well as an interior update. We can assume that the interior will provide more comfort and they’re probably going to make a quality upgrade using upscale materials on more expensive trims. Additionally, a technology update, with useful driver assistance and safety features is a must.
2019 Ram 2500/3500 Release
After we see what they prepared for the light-duty sibling, we will be sure about the 2019 Ram 2500/3500 HD update details. Aside from attractive specs, lots of new features will be introduced, making the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty trucks appealing until the total redesign. The 2019 Ram 2500/3500 will be released sometime in 2018, as 2019 model year.
