New Patent Hints at Ram 1500 With New Grille and Off-Road Equipment

A new patent was recently released depicting a Ram 1500 with a new grille design. The patent also showed the heavy-duty pickup equipped with some new off-road equipment including a snorkel design. This is good news for Ram fans as it may indicate a new mid-cycle refresh is in the works. As of late, Ram has been working on its first electric vehicle, the all-new 2024 Ram EV. The automaker has been busy gauging consumer sentiment for its all-new EV in order to create the ultimate electric pickup. Other vehicles Ram has been working on include the all-new 2023 Ram ProMaster van. For now, we’ll take a look at this new patent and see what Ram could have in the works. 

New Ram 1500 Revealed in Patent

Ram has recently unveiled a new patent for a Ram 1500 pickup. This patent shows the heavy-duty pickup with a new grille design as well as some new off-road equipment. This patent was published in April of 2022, so the new pickup is most likely still in production. Although Ram has been busy working on its all-electric Ram EV, the automaker is still making time to refresh its lineup. While Ram has offered consumers powerful new trims with high-performance features like the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX, this new model looks to feature more off-road capability. 

The Ram 1500 depicted in Ram’s new patent appears to have a new grille design. The heavy-duty pickup also looks to have new auxiliary lighting attached to the front grille. What leads many to believe this Ram model will feature more off-road capability is the fact that there is a built-in winch along with fender flares with exposed bolts. There is also a large air intake snorkel. Snorkels are typically used on off-road vehicles as a means to prevent dirt and water from entering the engine.

The last time the Ram 1500 featured a new redesign was in 2019. This new patent could be a mid-cycle refresh for the pickup as Ram aims to improve its lineup with new features and technology. Since it looks to be an off-road-oriented vehicle, Ram may offer several other trims that also feature the new redesign. We’ll have to wait for more information, but this is great news for Ram fans.
