Ram 1500

Segment: Full-sized Pickup

Drivetrain option(s): 4WD/RWD

Powertrain(s): Gasoline, Diesel

Freshen 2022

The old version, known by the designation DS, is expected to sunset at the end of 2019 or early 2020. However, it could soldier on, especially if tariffs and international trade agreements make continued pickup production in Mexico cost-prohibitive. Production of the new version, designated DT, began in early 2018, and it isn't due for a refresh until 2022. Meanwhile, look for continuing variations to boost sales of the DT, including introduction of the Hellcat-powered Rebel TRX to take on the Ford Raptor.
