Export market 2019 Ram 1500 begins production

2019 Ram 1500s spotted with subtle differences

Thanks to our friends at Real Fast Fotography we have photos of what we believe to be 2019 Ram 1500s to be sold in the EMEA region. Back in March, Ram Trucks brought a 2019 Ram 1500 Limited and a 2019 Ram Rebel to the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland.  According to Zawya “The Middle East is one of the key markets selected to spearhead the Ram brand’s expansion outside North America.”

These Rams differ from the trucks sold in the North American market slightly with the addition of reflectors in the rear bumper as well as the chrome RAM lettering across the tailgate instead of the Rams head. The only 2019 Ram 1500 sold in North America with the RAM script on the tailgate is the Rebel. Insiders tell 5thGenRams that originally all 2019 Ram 1500s were going to have the RAM script across the tailgate and the switch to the Rams head logo was a last minute decision.

Pre Production 2019 Ram 1500 caught on the steets by Real Fast Fotography

Back in January Real Fast Fotography caught this pre production Ram Limited also showing off the chrome RAM tailgate badging as well as the reflectors in the bumper. At that time we here at 5thGenRams thought that truck might have been build before the decision to go with the Rams head badge. If you look closely at the above photo you can see the remnants of the camo wrap that was taken off this truck after the 2019 Ram 1500s were revealed. That means that this truck had been running around for awhile previously.

With FCA being a global company it makes sense to take the RAM brand into every market that makes sense for them. While Ram Trucks have been exported to different countries previously there are rumors that Ram wants to do more exports with the new 5th generation truck than they have previously. The question that remains now is whether they will start producing trucks for the right hand drive market or continue to leave that up to the aftermarket.
