The Kentucky Derby® is all about going big — high drama, big hats, lavish outfits and a giant celebration — which is why the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is raising the stakes with a special Kentucky Derby edition. The truck is packed with technology, luxury and plenty of Ram brand pedigree. Here’s a preview of the latest special edition Kentucky Derby truck.
Exclusive Run for the Roses Fender Graphics
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 special edition commemorates the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby, and will serve as the Official Truck of Churchill Downs® during the May 5th Kentucky Derby. The Kentucky Derby special edition puts itself at the front of the pack with the brand’s top Limited trim, and features distinctive Kentucky Derby “Run for the Roses” fender graphics. This truck introduces the Ivory White Tri-Coat paint, and is the first time that a body-colored appearance package will be available on the all-new Ram 1500 Limited.
Trifecta: Ram Trucks, Horse Racing and Horsepower
The May 5th running for the roses marks the Ram Trucks brand’s ninth year as the Official Truck of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby. It’s a match that comes from the close ties between Ram Trucks and the equine community. The 2019 Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition is a no-compromise truck well-suited to meet the needs of all kinds of owners, including those who love horses and who require the kind of performance provided by the available 395-horsepower 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque mild hybrid system.
