Redesigned Interior

The cabin of the Ram 1500 gets a major redesign for 2019. Whereas the 2018 model went for a big-and-boxy look, the 2019 Ram 1500 flaunts a more modern interior style with upscale design elements. The already-spacious 4-door Crew Cab pushes the limits with an expanded rear seat that boasts best-in-class rear-seat space accommodations.

The 2019 Ram 1500 also gains a collection of clever storage solutions with under-seat compartments in the back, a rear flat-load floor, a reconfigurable center console and in-floor storage bins.
