While it is hard to imagine one of the most iconic pickup trucks becoming anymore famous, the Ram Truck brand has unveiled a limited edition of its new 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Pickup. Commemorating the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby, being held at Churchill Downs on May 4, the special-edition Kentucky Derby 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Pickup trucks feature body-colored bumpers and a billet-appearance grille. Exterior colors for this limited-edition Ram truck also includes seven exterior colors: Bright White, Pearl White, Delmonico Red, Diamond Black Crystal, Granite Crystal, Max Steel or Patriot Blue.
Celebrating Ram's 10-year anniversary as the Official Truck of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby, the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Kentucky Derby Edition features more than exterior beauty. Like any Ram truck this beautiful beast 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 of over 15,000 kilograms. Available on 2500 or 3500 Ram Limited models, these beastly additions also packs plenty of powerful gear including trailer-towing content, 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.
What would any historic and luxurious Ram truck be without a comfortable, yet luxurious interior? Each of the limited-edition Ram Heavy Duty Kentucky Derby models includes premium full-leather front and rear seats (rear reclining on Mega Cab) combined with genuine wood and metal trim throughout. Uniquely-colored seating, including Black and Saddle Brown, matching the color of many horses on this year's Derby track, are also available. At night, the cabin is also accentuated with ambient lighting to create a luxurious and soothing atmosphere for passengers
Packed with Exclusive Technology
Along with a jaw-dropping exterior and interior that would leave any cowboy ready for the long haul, the special-edition Kentucky Derby Ram truck also comes fully loaded with some of the most exclusive technology available in a heavy-duty truck. Along with a 12-inch Unconnect infotainment system with built-in Sirius XM 360L and navigation, this anniversary Ram truck also comes standard with power-retracting running boards as well as an easy to use Blind-spot Monitoring system.
