Texas Favorite Returns with Release of 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star Edition
Truck fans had plenty to celebrate at the Dallas Auto Show, but nothing really comes close to seeing a favorite model reborn.
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star edition made quite the impression on auto show attendees with its standard bright grille surround with billet inserts, chrome door handle centers, bright front and rear bumpers, fog lamps, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. On the inside, the Ram Lone Star continued to impress with a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls and 60/40 split rear bench seat.

“The hard-working appeal of the Ram Lone Star has made it a favorite among Texas truck buyers,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand. “Trucks are an important part of Texas life, and Ram trucks are proven to last. Ram’s long-lasting reliability has helped the Ram 1500 cement the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton pickup.”
According to FCA, the 2019 Lone Star, which is only available in Texas, features signature “Lone Star” interior badges and a “Lone Star” tailgate, and will be powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine; “a powerful and fuel-efficient HEMI with the eTorque mild hybrid system is also available.” As 2018 progresses buyers can opt for the available 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar with eTorque.
