Ram Unveils Special-Edition Kentucky Derby® Ram 2500 Heavy-Duty Pickup

Ram made a big announcement at the New York International Auto Show, introducing the limited edition 2019 Ram Heavy Duty truck that commemorates the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby®. This is the 10-year anniversary of Ram becoming the Official Truck of both Churchill Downs® and the Kentucky Derby, so Ram went all out with this special edition model.

The heavy duty commemorative truck is based on the Limited trim of both the Ram 2500 and Ram 3500, and comes with exclusive trailer-towing features that make them the perfect vehicle hauling a heavy load. The truck also includes premium leather seats, wood and metal trim accents, and the innovative Uconnect 12-inch infotainment system with SiriusXM® 360L and navigation.

This Kentucky Derby Edition truck can be equipped with either a 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine, or the powerhouse Cummins 6.7-liter turbo diesel that makes over 1,000 pound-feet of torque and has a tow rating of 35,100 pounds. Naturally, you have multiple other options to equip yours with the set-up that works best for your needs.

In a press release, Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, was quoted as remarking, "The Kentucky Derby remains one of America’s most recognized sporting events. This hardworking truck is packed with exclusive technology, luxury and good looks that make it fit to wear the Kentucky Derby name."

Production of this special edition truck is limited to 1,000 vehicles. To learn more about this truck, or explore our full Ram inventory, make the easy trip from Chicopee, Springfield, Enfield CT, or Hartford CT to our Stafford Springs showroom and meet with one of our team members.
