Load Up the Cargo! 

Ram completely redesigned the Ram 1500 for the 2019 model year and they are shaking up the full-size pickup segment again with the introduction of the Multifunction Tailgate! Unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show, the brand-new Multifunction Tailgate is going to offer even more versatility and utility to the Ram 1500 which is already the industry's leading truck in both storage and cargo-management. This innovative tailgate will be offered for all seven trim levels! We have all the latest details about this incredible new tailgate so keep reading to learn more! 

Can you tell us more about the new Multifunction Tailgate? 

We would love to! This multifunction tailgate is unique among all pickup trucks on the market today, delivering access to cargo without compromise. The tailgate retains its fully-dampened, traditional drop-down tailgate option as well as the remote release feature while introducing a first-of-its-kind 60/40 split opening with swing away functionality. The dual side-hinged tailgate doors make it even easier for truck owners to access their cargo! The doors also open independently, making loading cargo curbside a breeze! Plus, being closer to the bumper makes climbing into the bed easier and loading bulky items a cinch! It also allows for forklift loading! 

The Ram 1500 multifunction tailgate is also trailer friendly which means you don't have to remove the trailer and hitch before opening! It also retains all the traditional tailgate's capabilities, offering a load rating of 2,000 pounds! The multifunction tailgate has four configurations and they include open flat, open the right door only, open the left door only, and open both doors increasing the ways you can easily load cargo and gear! Both doors swing open 88 degrees and offer even more versatility with a retractable center-mounted step option! 


What other storage solutions does the 2019 Ram 1500 offer?

In addition to the incredible and brand-new multifunction tailgate, the 2019 Ram 1500 offers the RamBox cargo management system! The RamBox system is comprised of weatherproof, illuminated, drainable, versatile, and lockage storage bins that are built right into the truck's bed rails. These storage bins are also outfitted with both 115-volt and 400-volt power outlets so you can charge your tools on-the-go! In addition to the RamBox, you can opt for the available bed-divider which is also a bed extender -- offering an additional two-feet of cargo room and the cargo rail system which comes with four adjustable and sliding cleats.  

There are also innovative storage solutions found within the 2019 Ram 1500! The redesigned center console offers a total of 12 different storage configurations so you can stay organized traveling to and from home, school, and the work site! Plus, the true-load flat floor features integrated RamBins that are equipped with tie-down rings and offer expandable under-seat storage. In total, the Ram 1500 offers more than 151 liters of interior cargo space -- that's almost 100 percent more than all the other competitors!
