2019 Ram 1500 revealed in Detroit

The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 has made its debut at the Detroit motor show this week, sporting a lighter body and technology upgrades, along with a new mild-hybrid powertrain. Weighing up to 102 kilograms less than its predecessor, the new 1500 features an aluminium tailgate - but not the tray bed, which remains a decision unique to Ford and its big F-150.

2018 Detroit motor show: What to expect - UPDATE

Opened in 1899, Detroit's big show lays claim to being the second oldest event of its kind, with only the one year-older Paris motor show outdoing it. (The New York motor show followed in 1900.)
