Ram unveiled the 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star edition — the all-new version of the original “Texas Truck” — today at the Dallas Auto Show.
The Ram 1500 Lone Star is the brand’s top-selling truck in Texas.
“The hard-working appeal of the Ram Lone Star has made it a favorite among Texas truck buyers,” said Mike Manley, head of Ram Brand, FCA – Global. “Trucks are an important part of Texas life, and Ram trucks are proven to last. Ram’s long-lasting reliability has helped the Ram 1500 cement the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton pickup.”
Standard 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star equipment includes bright front and rear bumpers, chrome door handle centers, a bright grille surround with billet inserts, 18-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps, 60/40 split rear bench seat and leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.
In addition, monochromatic “Sport” and “Black” appearance packages are offered, creating a broad mix of interior and exterior themes for the new 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star model.
The 2019 Ram 1500 interior is completely redesigned, using all-new features, technology and premium materials. Four interior trim levels, and a choice of six-passenger bench front or optional five-passenger bucket seats, are offered on the Lone Star.
Several option packages are available with the Lone Star in order to give buyers their choice of function-specific enhancements. They include a Bed Utility Group, a 4×4 Off-road Group, a Protection Group, Trailer Tow Mirrors and Brake Group, Max Towing Package and Premium Lighting Group.
Additional options further allow Texas buyers to personalize their Ram 1500 Lone Star. Among those options are a class-exclusive Active Level Air Suspension, electric-locking rear axle, Blind-spot Monitoring and 20-inch aluminum wheels.
Available only in Texas, 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star models are distinguished by unique “Lone Star” tailgate and interior badges.
The Lone Star will initially be offered with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8. A powerful and fuel-efficient HEMI with the eTorque mild hybrid system is also available. A 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar with eTorque will join the powertrain offerings later in the year.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star is available with a choice of 4×2 and 4×4 powertrains, Crew and Quad Cab configurations and 5 ft.-7 in. (Crew only) and 6 ft.-4 in. bed lengths.
All-new 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star editions will go on sale in the first quarter of 2018. They are manufactured at FCA’s Sterling Heights (Michigan) Assembly Plant.
