2019 Dodge RAM 1500 Bigfoot Edition was created in cooperation with German Motors & Engineering. This company has done a complete overhaul exterior, as well as engines and suspensions. Although the new generation is largely ready, the model from 2018 is used as the basis. Of course, the main difference is a significantly stronger engine and a 9.5-inch suspension lift. It is a big challenge for Volkswagen Amarok, Nissan Navara and Mercedes-Benz X-Class.
The front has chrome mesh grille with matte black rim covers and LED light bar (optional). They’re here large Xenon headlights and massive body-color bumper. The rear also has large taillights and body-color bumper. In addition has a GME valve exhaust system (TÜV certificate) made from high quality stainless steel, with a two parallel 3 inch (76 mm) diameter exhaust gas systems. The cabin has comfortable leather seats, leather steering wheel and automatic climate control. Probably will have an 8.4-inch touchscreen on the central console.
Based on the Dodge RAM 1500 Sport Crew Cab with four doors. Placed at 20-inch forged wheels with 37-inch Toyo off-road tires. Compared to the standard model it is 9.5 inch (241 mm) higher, while the other dimensions are almost identical. Overall, the height is about 84.6 inch (2150 mm). Yet, although it looks impressive, parking in many European cities would be a serious problem. Certainly, it is significantly heavier, probably with much higher payload and towing capacity. A comfortable cabin can accommodate five to six passengers.
Embedded is 5.7-liter V-8 engine with Edelbrock supercharger kit and air-water-air intercooler. Production of this engine is a 550 hp and 530 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque. The standard model has a 395 hp and 410 lb-ft (556 Nm) of torque. According to some sources, it is possible to increase the power of up to 900 hp. Of course, it is necessary to upgrade certain parts of the engine beforehand. It is certain that it has a four-wheel drive, combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission. We do not know if it will get an 8-speed automatic transmission, as well as a rear-wheel drive. Also, we do not know fuel consumption, but it is sure to be much larger.
Unfortunately, we do not have any data on the price of 2019 Dodge RAM 1500 Bigfoot Edition. In any case, we must wait for official information from German Motors & Engineering.
