Next-Gen Ram 1500 Spied Testing In Less Camouflage

  Next-Gen Ram 1500 Spied Testing In Less Camouflage The new headlights are especially attractive.After previously testing the next-gen Ram 1500 with nearly no camouflage, the company now apparently feels comfortable putting the truck on the road with relatively little to hide its updated body. These shots catch the pickup under development and show the vehicle wearing the production grille, headlights, and taillights.

The camouflage is blocking the view, but it looks like the rear end has also been modified.

The fourth-generation Sportage has only been around for a little over two years, but with product life cycles getting shorter and shorter, we can’t say we’re surprised to see Kia is gearing up to introduce the facelifted version. Of course, it will take a while until that will happen, but seeing these spy shots is a sign an update is not that far off ahead.

The turn signals/parking lights are way up high, nearly on top of the fender. This new model has those two meet in the middle. The shape is generally what you would find on both the new Compass and Jeep Grand Cherokee. It's handsome, even if it does lose a bit of character.

Although usually facelifts are not bringing major changes (there are some exceptions, though), the Sportage is about to go through more than just the usual nip and tuck. Kia is not only changing the shape of the headlights, but it’s also fiddling with the configuration by incorporating the “ice cube” four-point LED daytime running lights into the cluster. The front bumper is also going under the knife and we can already see new fog lights with a different piece of plastic trim around them.

Unsurprisingly, the side profile will remain unchanged for the facelifted version, although we might get to see some fresh alloy wheel designs. An extended color palette also seems possible to give buyers more options to choose from when configuring their ideal Sportage.

Designers moved the cowl back 5 inches to achieve this look while giving the car a more planted appearance on the road.

Things get more interesting at the back where the taillights will be going through some changes. Thankfully, our spies were able to take a photo right when the test driver was braking, thus allowing us to see the swanky new graphics. Although we can’t see the full-width red bar that connects the two taillights on the current Sportage, chances are it’s still there. The rear bumper is also being updated, though nothing to write home about.

We don’t have spy images with the interior just yet, but seeing as how Kia didn’t even bother to cover the dashboard, it could be the company’s way of seeing very few changes will occur inside the cabin. An updated infotainment system is likely on the agenda, along with other novelties such as new upholstery choices and more safety tech.

The South Korean marque has already announced the Sportage will eventually benefit from mild hybrid 48-volt technology and we might get to see it on the facelifted model. Created primarily to improve fuel economy and consequently reduce CO2 emissions, the setup will also be implemented in the all-new Ceed scheduled to debut next month at the Geneva Motor Show.

Kia might decide to unveil the facelifted Sportage at the beginning of October this year during the Paris Motor Show, but nothing is official yet.

The same platform that underpins the current model will remain, but some changes to the overall styling, both inside and out, and rumors of a new gearbox have all been reported. New spy photos show off the inside of the updated coupe for the first time, and give us a better idea of what to expect.
