Early this morning, we showed you pictures of the upcoming Ram 2500 Tradesman which happen to have a lot less camouflage covering it’s exterior than previous prototypes we have seen. Now, we have more pictures of the prototype during the day and we can see a lot more detail about the new 2019 Ram Heavy Duty model style.
While much of the truck looks familiar such as the cab and the box (which don’t look like much has changed with the exterior body panels), we get a real close and detailed look at the totally updated sheet metal from the A-pillar forward. Again, the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty retains its “big-rig” styling that Ram owners have grown to love. Look closely you can see that like it’s all-new 2019 Ram 1500 brother, the Ram Heavy Duty models will carry similar badging on the hood. Squared off halogen headlamps on this entry trim level truck now proceed into the Heavy Duty horse collar grille.
Front end styling is also much more squared off than the current model, which has a tilt-forward look. We can see the “Ram Horns” trim above the grille as dip going over to the headlamps, very similar to the all-new 2019 Ram 1500.
For those concerned about the look of the headlamps, we have seen from spy photos that three different sets of headlamps will be offered on the new Ram Heavy Duty models.
In the rear, the tail lamps look very similar to the design found on the all-new 2019 Ram 1500. However, if you pay much attention to the photos you will notice that the lamp housing is not the same shape as the 1500, but carries over from the current truck. So that could mean 4th generation Ram owners could convert their tail lamps with the 2019 Heavy Duty models.
We also can see that distinct body line on the box that is currently on the 4th generation Ram pickups. While the box maybe the same, the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty also gets a similar bumper design as its 1500 brother. It features the lower step bumper as well as integrated LED lights.
