There’s something special about owning a powerful, commanding truck, which is why so many drivers love the Ram 1500. If you’ve heard of the Ram 1500 Lone Star Edition, you may have noticed that it’s not readily available here in North Carolina or in Clinton. That’s because RAM designers created the Lone Star Edition for Texas customers only.
Why the favoritism? When you consider that roughly 20 percent of trucks bought in America are sold to Texas buyers, it makes sense why the RAM team would want to give them something special. The Lone Star Edition fulfills the needs and wants of a huge part of RAM’s audience, but living outside Texas can be a bit of bummer for anyone fiending for a 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star.
However, while you cannot purchase the model outside of Texas, they do find their way out of the state and into Lone Star Edition hunting grounds. If you are interested in owning at 2019 Ram 1500 Lone Star Edition, call us at (888) 735-5701 or contact us below – we’d be happy to search for available models and can likely acquire one for you!
If you’re curious to know what makes this special edition so, well, special, let’s dive in.
Beneath the hood lies a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 or a 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6. The new eTorque mild hybrid system can be found on the former but will become available on the V6 option later this year. The transmission is an eight-speed regardless of which engine you choose.
Special Lone Star badges adorn the tailgate and interior. Prepare to check out your reflection in the massive chrome bumpers, door handles, grille, and wheels. Not a fan of shiny? The Sport and Black Appearance Packages will be more your speed.
Choose between a front bench seat to carry six, or bucket seats in the front to tote up to five people. Four interior trims give you plenty of options, with a 60/40-split rear bench seat and leather-wrapped steering wheel standard. Upgrade to get blind-spot monitoring, 20-inch wheels, active level air suspension, and electric-locking rear axle.
The ladies and gentlemen of Texas sure do have one thing right, and it’s their love for a quality, stylish, and high-performing truck. We certainly can’t fault them for that! Owning a Lone Star Edition model would be a fantastic way to show off your love for the RAM lineup and turn a few heads while you’re at it.
