2019 RAM 1500 Laramie gets new grille and raised chrome badging

2019 RAM 1500 Laramie new grille raised chrome badging news

Front and rear redesign for 2019 RAM 1500 Laramie.

RAM’s design team has tweaked the front and back ends of the RAM 1500 Laramie to herald in the 2019 model range.

The updated 1500 Laramie has arrived sans crosshair grille, with a new chrome grille with RAM lettering in its place. At the opposite end of the rig the design boffins have added 30cm-high raised chrome badging on the tailgate.

“Since its launch last year the RAM 1500 has proven to be the outstanding success for RAM in Australia that we expected, a point proven in February by the Australian production line achieving more than 200 vehicles re-manufactured in a month for the first time,” Alex Stewart, General Manager of RAM Trucks Australia, said.

“In response to this demand we have moved from the tradition RAM ‘crosshair’ grille to the chrome grille with the word RAM emblazoned across its front … [and] it now has RAM adorning the tailgate in 30cm-high raised chrome lettering.”

In other changes, the 1500 Express now features a reversing camera and Trailer Brake Control. The new look has also been implemented on the 2500 Laramie.

RAM pick-ups are remanufactured from LHD to RHD for the Australian and New Zealand markets, at its purpose-built Melbourne facility. The vehicles are fully factory-supported and backed by 37 RAM dealers Australia-wide.

However, punters keen on the diesel-powered versions will have to remain patient, as diesel 1500s have been delayed until May this year.
