Truck Tuesday: 2019 Ram Heavy Duty redefines cabin comfort for the long haul

When you measure your days in highway miles, hauling heavy loads across town or across the country, keeping customers happy and satisfied with on-time delivery, you need more than the occasional coffee and lunch break to get through.

With that in mind, 2019 Ram Heavy Duty truck designers went to work creating a cabin that would surround hardworking drivers with benchmark comfort and luxury … luxury they can  feel, touch, smell and experience on every level over every highway mile.

Ryan Nagode, Ram Chief Interior Designer, takes a closer look at how choosing only premium materials, over-the-top innovation, leading-edge technology and a laser focus on fulfilling the comfort and confidence Ram Truck customers desire produced a Ram Heavy Duty truck cabin for the long haul, unmatched by the competition.

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!
