2019 Ram 1500 Split Folding Tailgate

2019 Ram 1500 Spied With its Split Folding Tailgate on Display

Nov 15, 2017

The next-generation Ram 1500 has been spied testing once again, but this time photographers have gotten a good look at its innovative split folding tailgate.

Rumors have been swirling for quite some time that the Ram 1500 could be set to adopt an innovative tailgate that splits in half to open, or can be folded down like a traditional tailgate. In a patent filing discovered back in 2014, the automaker described the system as such: “The doors can be coupled to the respective frames to selectively pivot about a second axis perpendicular to the first axis and relative to the frames and can be selectively coupled to the frames via respective door latches.”

These spy photos serve as the first bit of evidence that the next-generation Ram pickup will feature the split-folding tailgate. Rather than splitting right down the middle, the tailgate is split offset in order to make way for the centrally-located tailgate handle. We’re assuming the handle to open the tailgate outward is located on top of the tailgate, but it’s hard to tell based on these images alone.

Previous spy photos have revealed how much of the exterior of the 2019 Ram will look and also gave us a glimpse at its interior. Those images revealed the Ram will do away with its Dodge-inspired crosshair grille and incorporate some futuristic-looking headlights, while the interior will feature a huge Tesla-like center display screen.

We’re expecting the 2019 Ram 1500 to make its debut sometime next year – perhaps as early as the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. For now, you can get familiar with its rear end with the gallery embedded above.
