The 2019 RAM 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition
In a recent blog post, we told you about the exciting, capable 2019 RAM 1500. Now, we want to tell you all about a special iteration of the mighty pickup, the 2019 RAM 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition.
If you’re a racing fan or horse lover, you know that it’s almost time for the Kentucky Derby. Held on the first Saturday of May, the 144th Kentucky Derby will be run on May 5th this year. The Run for the Roses is often described as the most exciting two minutes in sports and there’s a reason for that – it is!
Befitting such a thrilling contest, the RAM brand created a pickup to celebrate the Kentucky Derby in all its glory. The RAM 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition is instantly recognizable thanks to Derby-themed graphics on its rear fender.
Just like some of the world’s finest horses will perform on the track next month, the RAM 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition is made to perform no matter where you drive it. When the truck is properly equipped, the 2019 RAM 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition can tow an impressive 12,750 pounds.
Despite the truck’s obvious power and in keeping with its great looks, the RAM 1500 Derby Edition is a pleasure to drive. The new truck is outfitted with some incredible features, including the latest Uconnect™ infotainment system and a 12-inch touchscreen that has Sirius XM™ 360L with navigation.
Have you ever seen a truck with power-retracting running boards? You will when you see the RAM 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition. The truck’s other standard features include a blind spot monitor with automatic trailer detection, a four-corner air suspension that automatically levels itself, and a trailer hitch.
This truck will be a limited version, so you probably won’t see it here, but you can see the 2018 and 2019 RAM 1500 models when you visit our RAM dealership near Tulsa, OK.
