2019 Ram 1500 spotted

2019 Ram 1500 spotted without the classic crosshairs
Oct 16th 2017 at 3:10PM

Up front are the most significant changes. Ram trucks since the mid-'90s have been distinguished by their big-rig looks that consisted of low mounted headlights, and a tall, proud grille. That grille was also made all the more prominent by how the middle of the hood met the top of the grille, while the sides of the hood and the fenders dipped down toward the headlights.

Oh thank goodness, the Ram has looked almost exactly the same since the mid-2000s. This new look still looks tough and cool, but also much more refined.

Well, now we will not be able to tell the difference between a Chevy.

That just makes one appreciate how well designed F-150 actually is. The competition just can't even get close.

So they're going to stick the Durango's nose on it, color me unimpressed. The RAM is iconic for it's brutish big rig styling, this is way too feminine IMO.

If you have a Mustang and you take it off the long nose, short deck profile and the 3 bars tailligths, you will have an sport coupe, but not a Mustang. If you have a Ram truck and you take it off the prominent fenders and grille, you will have a Chevy truck. This redone is a disaster from the heritage and brand recognition point of view.

Maybe Ram is taking Chevy design queues to try to take their position in the truck sales chart

Kinda looks old already.

Clearly not the popular opinion here, but I like it. I'd prefer an updated crosshair grille, but it sure beats the current pig snout.

They had a better option. Sad that they did not use it.
