Truck Thursday: 2019 Ram 1500 takes interior luxury to the max

For 2019, the Ram Truck interior design team turned its creative focus toward introducing a new standard of luxury to the all-new Ram 1500. Although everyone tends to have their own ideas of personal luxury, most of us would probably agree that comfort, unique styling, quality craftsmanship, over-the-top customization and some very ‘cool’ detailing throughout add up to a luxurious ride.

This Truck Thursday, we say ‘welcome aboard’ the new definition of driving luxury.

Every surface you touch, everywhere you look, the cabin of the all-new Ram 1500 fulfills the mission these designers set out to accomplish with full-grain leathers, real wood, striking metal accents and a Harman Kardon speaker system specially tuned for the 2019 Ram 1500 cabin. You can’t get much more ‘personalized’ than that!

Ryan Nagode, chief designer for Ram Truck Interiors, talks about how he and his team turned a luxurious concept into a luxurious reality for the 2019 Ram 1500.

Hi, I’m Betty Carrier Newman. I know – three names! Just who does she think she is? I’m a native Michigander; therefore, I love all things outdoors, like hiking and off-roading. I work in Communications with the Digital Media team. Some days I produce video shoots, write scripts, voice and edit video for features to post to our corporate and social media sites. Other times I’m strategizing with the brands I support – Ram, Jeep and Corporate – to come up with attention-grabbing ways to tell their unique stories. Then there’s the travel - to places like Moab, Utah, and the Rubicon Trail in California - to shoot (and enjoy) awesome off-road adventure that I then turn into exciting videos to post on our sites. Routine? Definitely not in my world! Challenges, creativity, cool cars and trucks, exciting places – yeah, they’re in there! Oh, the three names? In an earlier life I was hired as the first major-market female TV co-anchor for the NBC affiliate in Detroit – Channel 4. My name was Betty Carrier back then – until I married and added the ‘Newman.’ That’s my story and, yes, I’m really enjoying my FCA ride!
