2019 Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition Breakdown | Landers CDJR of Norman
Hold on to your horses, folks! The 2019 Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition is revved up and ready to take the gold. If you’re a Kentucky Derby fan, you know that Ram is the official truck of the derby, and has been for the last nine years. So it’s only fitting that Ram would release this special edition honoring the 144th Run for the Roses.
This special edition is immediately identifiable by the distinctive Kentucky Derby bed graphics and bold front and rear body-colored bumpers. When you catch a glimpse of this truck, you’ll know one thing for certain — this special edition commemorates one of America’s most cherished sporting events in style. The Run for the Roses badging is stunning no matter what, but you also have six exterior colors to choose from. Those colors are: Granite Crystal Metallic, Diamond Black Crystal Pearl Coat, Maximum Steel Metallic, Delmonico Red Pearl Coat, Ivory Tri Coat and Patriot Blue Pearl Coat.
Those aren’t the only things that set this truck apart, though — not even close. The special edition truck, which is available as a crew cab, is based on the Ram 1500’s Limited trim. So the Kentucky Derby comes “standard” with a whole lot of amazing perks.
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition includes the Uconnect 12.0 infotainment system with Navigation. This Uconnect system features the largest-in-class 12-inch touchscreen with SiriusXM 360L. Yes, you read that correctly. The screen is this truck is 12 inches. This is the future.
Here’s another perk you definitely won’t get on the back of an actual horse — the 900-watt Harman Kardon Premium Audio System. It’s the most powerful audio system in its class, with 19 speakers and exceptional sound quality. Perfect for playing America’s “Horse with No Name” or “Wild Horses” by The Rolling Stones (Non-horse-related music sounds great too).
Whether you’re driving, riding shotgun or just tagging along in the back, you’ll feel like you’re sitting in the throne of luxury as soon as you take a seat in the Kentucky Derby Edition Ram. That’s because the truck comes with premium full-leather heated and ventilated front seats, as well as heated rear seats with available reclining and ventilated features. The cabin also features genuine wood and metal trim throughout, so every inch of the pickup is impressive.
The available 22-inch painted and polished aluminum wheels add another element of style to the 2019 Ram 1500 Kentucky Derby Edition. Now that’s a good-looking truck.
