Truck Thursday: 2019 Ram 1500 ‘steps up’ cargo hauling convenience

‘Tis the season of parcels and packages wrapped up with love.

So, this #TruckThursday it’s nice to know the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 has stepped up to help make loading and safely storing your bags, boxes, barrels and other cargo items in your pickup’s cargo bed easier and faster than ever.

Here’s how it works. With one quick kick, the Ram 1500 Bed Step deploys from under the rear bumper to offer a firm foothold and comfortable vantage point for you to transition cargo into or out of the pickup bed. When you’re finished loading up, another quick kick restores the Bed Step to its original ‘home,’ out of sight until you need it again. Because the Bed Step literally disappears when not in use, it always pops down clean, dry and ready to go to work.

The 2019 Ram 1500 Bed Step is another one of the thoughtful ways Ram made sure to integrate customer wants and needs across the all-new Ram 1500 model lineup.

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!
