2019 Ram Heavy Duty Pickup Unveiled As Kentucky Derby Special-Edition.

This year's New York International Auto Show, saw the unveiling of the Ram Truck limited edition of its new 2019 Ram Heavy Duty to commemorate the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby® which took place on May 4, the ten-year anniversary of Ram being the Official Truck of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby.

Behind the scenes at Churchill Downs there are thousands of workers that make the Kentucky Derby run smoothly. Ram Heavy Duty trucks are an integral part of the Kentucky Derby, hauling equipment, delivering supplies and getting work crews to their site. The same goes for any Ram Truck owner on Long Island. Ram owners from Setauket to Riverhead, Smith Haven to Ronkonkoma know their Ram Heavy Duty truck is fit for duty and capable of the most demanding of tasks.
 
The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Kentucky Derby Edition is fittingly based on the brand’s top Limited trim and features segment-leading capability and technology.

“The Kentucky Derby remains one of America’s most recognized sporting events,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “This hardworking truck is packed with exclusive technology, luxury and good looks that make it fit to wear the Kentucky Derby name.”
 
The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Kentucky Derby Edition trucks include exclusive trailer-towing content that makes them ideal tow vehicles. Features, including 360-degree surround-view camera with trailer-reverse guidance, fifth-wheel/gooseneck prep, active hitch grid lines, air suspension with bed lowering, Forward Collision Warning-Plus with trailer braking, bed step and DOT safety kit, allow customers to tow their precious cargo with confidence.

The 2019 Ram Kentucky Derby Edition also includes Ram’s segment-leading Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen radio with Sirius XM 360L and navigation, power-retracting running boards and Blind-spot Monitoring.
 
The 2019 Kentucky Derby Edition also includes premium full-leather front and rear seats (rear reclining on Mega Cab) combined with genuine wood and metal trim throughout. Uniquely-colored seating features a Black and Saddle Brown hybrid of Limited and Longhorn trims, accented with medium Greystone stitching and piping.
 
The exterior includes an exclusive, premium billet-appearance grille and body-color bumpers. Buyers can choose from seven exterior colors: Bright White, Pearl White, Delmonico Red, Diamond Black Crystal, Granite Crystal, Max Steel or Patriot Blue.
 
The Ram Heavy Duty breaks through the 1,000 lb.-ft. barrier with the powerful 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel and offers the highest towing capability in the segment at 35,100 pounds. With that in mind, not all the Kentucky Derby special-edition features are aesthetic.
 
The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Kentucky Derby Edition is available on 2500 or 3500 Limited, Cummins 6.7-liter Turbo Diesel I-6 or 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8, 4x2 or 4x4, Mega Cab or Crew Cab, single rear wheel or dual rear wheel with 6-ft.-4-in. or 8-ft. bed lengths.
