Spy shots of the new generation of Ram 1500 are there. A lot of changes are on the way, according to these pictures. Photographers even managed to see inside the truck. This shown us what to expect from the upcoming pickup. However, there are also rumors about 2019 Ram 1500 Mega Cab. Return of this version is not official yet, and we are still missing spy photos of this extended truck.
The current generation of Ram 1500 is not offering the Mega Cab version. Now, the truck can be purchased in Regular cab configuration as the base model. Extended cabins are on Quad and Crew Cab trucks. The Ram 1500 Mega Cab would be even larger than the last one, which can accommodate up to 5 passengers.
2019 Ram 1500 Mega Cab Drivetrain, Specs
Variety of engine choices starts with 3.0-l EcoBoost unit for entry-level models. Furthermore, we can find a 3.6-liter V-6 Pentastar drivetrain in most of the trim levels. This drivetrain is capable to deliver 305 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. EcoBoost diesel is less potent with 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of twisting power. Also, it has the best fuel economy in the family, with 25 mpg rating for combined driving. Finally, there is a huge 5.7-liter V-8 unit. This Hemi engine is ready to deliver 400 hp and 410 pound-feet of torque.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Mega Cab could use two big options, while the diesel is not suitable and powerful enough for it. Also, We doubt that this type of cab configuration will be available for the first couple of entry models. Only higher trim will offer the Mega Cab.

Even the Crew Cab models lack the legroom for taller occupants in back seats. The Mega Cab will solve these problems. Nevertheless, since its cabin is even larger, we suppose Mega Cab is coming only with short 5’7’’ bed box. Experts predict no lower level trim than Big Horn will offer this version of the truck. Also, two top of the class pickups, Laramie Longhorn and Limited editions, are going to expand their offer with 2019 Ram 1500 Mega Cab.

The eye-catching detail is vertical touchscreen display on the control panel. Ram will definitely update Uconnect system. Also, we could see a lot of knobs and buttons, so it is obvious that one of the higher-level trim was in the street, with plenty of accessories.

The 2019 Ram 1500 Mega Cab will come with other trucks under this nameplate. However, it will definitely steal the show. A lot of fans are expecting the comeback. Nevertheless, we still don’t know what exactly to expect, so it is hard to make predictions if other buyers would like it.
Price of the new Ram 1500 Mega Cab is going to depend on the trim level. If it appears as Big Horn, the price will start at around $41,000. However, with 5.7-l Hemi unit, Longhorn and Limited models will cost over $55,000.
