Ram’s popular workhorse, the 1500, is coming in for a redesign for the 2019 model year.

The next generation of the full-size pickup truck, code-named the DT, will debut in early 2018 (January’s Detroit auto show most likely) and bring with it a more modern face. The cross hair grille is intact, although it’s been slimmed down. In addition, the headlights feature a squarer shape and look to feature some new LED elements. The hood now sports the powertrain designation and is more chiseled than on today’s model, a theme that continues on the rest of the body.

In the cabin, Ram has gone with a familiar layout though there’s a large display screen at the top of the center stack and large rotary dials sitting below this. The vehicle also retains a rotary dial controller for the transmission, likely an 8-speed automatic. Judging by the size of the cab on some of the prototypes, it also looks like Ram will be offering its Mega Cab option on the redesigned 1500.

In the powertrain department, expect to see the familiar 3.6-liter V-6 and 5.7-liter V-8 options, possibly with available turbocharging for the former. And despite Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ recent diesel woes, we’re still expecting a torquey oil-burner in the next-gen 1500 at some point. More powerful V-8 options are also likely, including in a possible Ford F-150 Raptor rival, and we hear that mild-hybrid technology is also being looked at.
