Spy shots of the still under-wraps 2019 Ram 1500 show that Ram is adding a new tailgate to its popular light-duty truck. The tailgate will be split to the right of the handle, letting it open in multiple configurations for the smartest and most storage-friendly tailgate access ever found on a pickup.
Traditionally, truck tailgates are hinged to the bottom of the truck bed and open down in one long piece. The 2019 Ram 1500 tailgate will have detachable hinges at both the bottom of the bed and the sides of the bed. This will let you open it down as one big piece, or open one piece down the traditional way and one piece outward like a car door, or even open both pieces outward.
This smart configuration makes accessing the bed much easier, since you don’t have to climb over the tailgate to get to the bed, and the split configuration lets you carry long items on one side without having the entire tailgate open.
Only the back of the truck has been photographed at this point, so we don’t know all the details about the new tailgate, but keep an eye out for updates on the upcoming 2019 Ram 1500! And if you want to find out more about the 2019 Ram 1500 tailgate, give us a call today at Flagler CDJR.
