Ram Unveils Texas-Only 2019 Lone Star Trucks
Everything is bigger in Texas. There are some things you can only get in Texas, and that includes the new 2019 Ram 2500 and 3500 Lone Star trucks. Ram unveiled the Texas-only Heavy Duty models at the DFW Auto Show in Dallas, Texas. The trucks will only be distributed in Texas.
Features include unique Ram Lone Star badging on the tailgate. The trucks are offered with a choice of two interior packages and four colors. Customers can choose a closed upper-dash door with a Lone Star nameplate badge, power driver seat, and Uconnect 8.4-inch multifunction touchscreen. The trim is available in black and Diesel Grey, black and light brown, Light Frost and black, or all-black premium cloth seats.
“First and foremost, the Ram Heavy Duty Lone Star edition is a powerful, hard-working truck that meets the demands of Texas truck buyers. Trucks are a big part of life in the Lone Star State, and Ram offers the segment’s best combination of performance, strength, luxury and technology,” said Head of Ram Brand Reid Bigland.
Ram unveiled its Heavy Duty lineup earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show. The new high-strength steel frame offers a greater capacity with reduced weight. Lightweight materials in the frame, powertrain, and an aluminum hood reduce overall weight by up to 143 pounds. The truck can tow up to 35,000 pounds. The Lone Star editions will come standard with trailer receiver hitches, electronic trailer brake controllers, and power trailer tow mirrors.
Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Lone Star pricing starts at $37,645 and Ram 3500 Heavy Duty Lone Star pricing starts at $39,095. Both trucks can only purchased from Texas dealers.
