Mopar RAM 2500 Heavy Duty revealed 2019 Chicago Auto Show feature

RAM and Mopar pull the covers off new factory customised 2500 Heavy Duty.

RAM recently unveiled its Mopar-enhanced 2019 2500 Heavy Duty, which samples Mopar’s extensive selection of customisation products including lights, a sports bar, beadlock wheels and more.

The new RAM is based on the 2019 2500 Big Horn and remains powered by a 6.4-litre Hemi V8 motor. Fitted standard to the Mopar RAM is a powder-coated RAM Bar (or sports bar), along with five five-inch LED off-road lights mounted to the top of it. All the guards come with new black wheel flares, while rock rails keep both sides protected while you’re out on the trails.

The beadlock wheels are custom-milled 17-inch alloys wrapped in Goodyear off-road tyres, and the Mopar truck also has the new rear-bed step tailgate which lowers the tailgate for easy access.

Other options available include a trailer camera that lets you see behind what you’re towing, a fifth-wheel hitch, gooseneck ball kit, bed/tub extender that extends the bed with the tailgate down, heavy duty bed liners, a cargo ramp, toolboxes, splash guards, wireless phone charging, Katzkin seats, a variety of tonneau covers, and side steps.

Powertrain and suspension componentry remains unchanged. “The Mopar-modified RAM 2500 Heavy Duty is the latest example of our commitment to offering owners a full product line to choose from right at launch of FCA US LLC vehicles,” Steve Beahm, head of parts and service at Mopar, and passenger car brands, FCA – North America, said.

“Whether it’s for the trail, the street or the worksite, Mopar will have more than 170 parts and accessories that provide a path to enhanced capability for the new 2019 RAM Heavy Duty.”
