The 2019s have been out for quite some time now and I have yet to see one in the wild. Sure, plenty of them on the dealer lots, but NONE on the road. I drive frequently in the GTA, from Burlington to Richmond Hill, so plenty of QEW, 401, 400, 403. I go to Waterloo every week and Algonquin/Bancroft every weekend. Still none, and trust me, I keep my eyes out there.
I, for one, despise the new prices, they are absolute highway robbery. How many have you seen? Not a friends truck or a meet, just one in the wild.

I've scene 3 or 4 in the last couple weeks. One on the interstate, one at the car wash, and a couple just driving around in town. I think they have all been Delmonico Red so that must be a popular color.

I've seen one in person and its a decent looking truck but I agree its not awesome to the point of where I just have to run out and buy one. The prices are still too high and seem to bounce around at my dealer on almost a daily basis. There's really no point in giving them much though until the prices are more in line with what I paid for mine(39K OTD) OF course if you look at some Dennis Dillon trucks online the prices will make you sick.

Even living in the big city of dallas TX and driving 32 miles round trip to work, half on the highway, I have still not seen a gen 5. LOTS of gen 4s though!
Only gen 5's I have seen were on dealer lots.
I think this says something...

ha, i would expect texas to be there on top but i guess money talks, after all.
might see big discounts by the end of the year...
probably this is one of the reasons they still sell the "classic"

In a couple of months, 2019 Ram 1500 Crew Cabs, that will look like the 2009 - 2018 Ram 1500s will start being built in Saltillo Mexico

It will be called the 2019 Ram 1500 CLASSIC

Maybe they will have some of the fancy new gizmos that the 2019 Ram 1500s that are being built in Sterling Heights Michigan :4-dontknow:

I see a couple a day here in SW Louisiana. I’m actually at the dealership now getting the cc flash recall. I just don’t love the new ones at all. I think I’d get another sport or the Tungsten limited if I had to buy one now.

i finally saw on the road this morning, boy, it took 30 seconds to kick in.
The rear end looked GMC to me, but the emblem did not fit...and driving along, it suddenly hit me - holy crap, the first one in the wild. A black sport.
Actually not impressed, they look a bit more feminine, they lack that grunt, mean look. Disappointed.

I am in Connecticut on vacation now

I saw the first 2019 Ram being driven yesterday, i had to do a double take, it was coming up a Highway Ramp as i was driving away from a small country town
It was a Reddish color, possibly a Delmonico Red, the Sun was hitting it directly, so i could not tell for sure

I finally saw one on the road yesterday. Was a darker red sport. Kinda disappointing, blends right in with the other vehicles on the road. I think FCA made a huge blunder with this new styling. Looked at them on a dealer's lot over the weekend. The only one I would even consider is the Rebel. The rest are just blah.

I saw my first 2019 being driven in the wild here in NEPA about 2 weeks ago. I didn't get a long look as it was headed in the opposite direction on a highway. I only knew because the RAM grill.
