2019 Dodge Ram Body Structure

Body Structure

The 2019 Dodge Ram truck has a mix of different steels.  A new trend in B-pillar design is using a weaker grade of steel in the lower area as seen in the the picture below.

Steel Used

  • Steel-intensive, lightweight design with high strength structural adhesive
  • Strategic mix of hot stamped, UHSS, dual phase and HSLA steels
  • Efficient, lightweight body structure, with improved stiffness and strength
  • Mild steel used for exterior surface parts requiring high form-ability and appearance
  • Dual phase steel structural reinforcements
  • Hot stamped steel door ring structure and front header provide strong, lightweight designs for impact
