After its recent launch at the Detroit Show in January, the Geneva International Motor Show welcomed the new Ram 1500 MY19, making its debut in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East & Africa), where the American brand is already very popular. AGT Europe’s team was there and witnessed the many fans visiting the stand to see how emotional and different this vehicle can be: More space, more comfort and more pick up!
“The Dodge & Ram Trucks stand in Geneva offered a remarkable demonstration of power, strong capability and modern technology. Nowhere else at the show, one got to see 1’600 horsepower gathered on 150 square meters, available for an affordable price. The new MY19 RAM is living proof that there is no need for compromises between premium daily-drivability and the capability to transport tons of material. It is truly a next-generation pick-up truck and we are extremely proud to distribute it in Europe” said Andreas Jenny, CEO of AGT Europe.
The demand for the new model is very high and AGT Europe’s team received interest from many business partners across Europe. France, the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy among others, shared their impressions:
“The design and quality of the materials is very nice, it is really premium”, said a dealer from France.
“The space in the 2nd row is incredible! We have 3 kids and with such generous interior room there won’t be any more place issues” said a dealer from Germany.
“I am sure it will be a big success”, said a business partner from Switzerland.
Over 2300 units of Ram 1500 were sold last year by AGT Europe who is now looking forward to build on this success with the new product.
Since being launched in North America as an independent brand in 2009, Ram has quickly won a solid specialist reputation, proven by many awards and market successes achieved over these years, thanks to a product range that effectively expresses supreme levels of innovation, capability, efficiency and durability. The pickup is equipped with a 395 HP 5.7L V8 powertrain, an eight-speed automatic transmission and 4WD (*).
Next to the two Ram units, the public also admired the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon that provided an imposing appearance. “The specialists at SRT did a terrific job; you should have seen how eyes of visitors were widening when they figured out that there was 840 horse power below the hood, waiting to be released!” added Andreas Jenny.
