Interiors

The biggest change in the interior is a brand new cabin which boasts of an extremely massive touchscreen user interface. The screen is expected to be much more larger than the 8.4 inch ones that we find today. However, the exact specifications are yet to be released by the automaker.

Other Changes

From the way things look, the 2014 Ram 1500 is also expected to sport a new grille and an array of projector headlamps and LED tail lamps. However, what remains unclear is whether this amazing light combination will be offered as a standard product or will be given out as an option in the higher versions. Moreover, the 2014 Ram 1500 includes a completely revised suspension design. The front multi link array seems to have given way to a single trailing arm setup. The shock absorbers seem to have been relocated as well. With the company doing its best to keep the details of the new 1500 under lock and key at the moment, it is difficult to provide the exact specifications and we just have to wait for the company to make its official announcement soon.
