Ram is honoring the Kentucky Derby with a new limited-edition HD pickup. The first limited-edition Ram Kentucky Derby came out last year in 2018, but this year, they have provided even more for owners to embrace. Just as strong, in terms of hauling strength, as it is luxurious, this premium package is a gorgeous gift for any owner. Ram has been a sponsor for the world’s most popular horseracing event for a decade. They made sure this pickup was outfitted with trailer-towing aids and exclusive design features within and out. Ram pulled out all the stops for this Kentucky Derby Edition, which will be first shown at the 2019 New York International auto show before going on sale.
This limited run is a follow-up to the Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition launched last year but builds on the offered amenities. Based on the top Limited trim, the 2019 HD Kentucky Derby Edition brings together towing features including an air suspension with a 360-degree surround-view camera with trailer-reverse guidance, a lowered bed, fifth-wheel prep, and active hitch grid lines. The enhanced features also incorporate Forward Collision Warning-Plus with trailer braking, a bed step, and a DOT safety kit.
Further Special Edition Specifics
The special edition package is prepared for both the 2019 Ram 2500 or 3500, paired with either the 6.7-Liter Turbodiesel inline-six or the 6.4-Liter V8 powertrain option. If an owner opts for the diesel engine in the Ram 3500, they will gain an enormous max towing rating of 35,100 pounds. Buyers can also go with a 4×2 or 4×4, Mega Cab or Crew Cab styles. The choice of a single-rear-wheel or dual-rear-wheel configuration is available and drivers can select from a 6-foot, 4-inch or 8-foot bed length.
The 2019 Kentucky Derby Edition looks elegant with its uncommon billet-appearance grille and body-color bumper design. The choice of seven exterior colors is available: Patriot Blue, Bright White, Granite Crystal, Max Steel, Pearl White, Delmonico Red, and Diamond Black Crystal.
The Ram 2500 & 3500 provide high-end interior qualities as owners gain leather seating, both the rear seats with reclining functions available for all Mega Cab models. The seats look gorgeous with Black and Saddle Brown colored upholstery for the Limited and Longhorn trims, Medium Greystone stitching and piping add for a beautiful interior. Perhaps the best feature is the massive foot-long touchscreen and Sirius XM 360L with navigation, this is the future for a Ram owner and the best measure of luxury Ram trucks can offer any owner and it’s worth totally it, if you ask us.
Starting prices begin at $68,585 MSRP (plus destination fee) for Ram 2500 models and $69,935 MSRP (plus destination fee) for the Ram 3500. The special trucks are already on sale now, but there has not been a lot of units made. The production for this special edition is just a mere 1,000 units.
