February 8, 2019 , Chicago - The #mopar and #ram Truck brands unveiled today at the Chicago Auto Show (CAS) a modified 2019 #ram 2500 #heavyduty truck, highlighting a few of the more than 170 products #mopar will offer for the most powerful, most capable #pickup in the segment.
“The Mopar-modified #ram 2500 #heavyduty on display at the Chicago Auto Show 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,” said Steve Beahm, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar) and Passenger Car Brands, FCA - North America. “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 #heavyduty.”
Mopar-modified 2019 #ram 2500 Heavy Duty
The modified #pickup, based on a 2019 #ram 2500 #heavyduty Big Horn powered by the 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 engine, is trimmed in monochromatic Blue Streak production color and has been enhanced with the addition of vehicle-launch ready #mopar parts and accessories, as well as a few unique conceptual products.
Mopar parts include a black, powder-coated #ram Bar located in the bed and topped with five 5-inch LED off-road lights, each shining bright at 4,800 lumens each. An auxiliary switch bank inside the cab integrates with the #mopar LED lights to provide an organized central area for operation of auxiliary accessories.
A rear bed step, a production option also available as a #mopar accessory, lowers for easy access when the tailgate is up or down and retracts with a gentle push. A set of #mopar off-road wheel flares offers additional defense against the trail while enhancing the truck’s rugged appearance.
A pair of #mopar conceptual products work together to deliver tough, durable off-road capability. Conceptual off-road rock rails are powder-coated and provide protection for driving through the trails, while 17-inch custom-milled concept beadlock wheels work with aggressive Goodyear tires. In the bed area, a conceptual rear spare tire carrier holds up to a 37-inch tire.
The redesigned #ram Heavy Duty’s interior is complemented with #mopar brushed stainless steel door sill guards carrying the R-A-M text logo, currently in the #mopar catalog. Bucket-style, waterproof #mopar all-weather floor mats help defend against water, slush and other debris.
Mopar worked closely with the #ram brand, engineering and the Product Design Office (PDO) to create its lineup of products for the new 2019 #ram #heavyduty. Development included tens of thousands of hours of testing and validation to meet strict standards. Factory-exclusive data — information not available to the aftermarket — helped to integrate #mopar parts and accessories with the #ram #heavyduty.
The majority of the #mopar brand’s menu of production parts and accessories will be available right at vehicle launch.
