Our spy photographers have managed to lay their lenses on the 2014 Ram HD family ahead of the truck's launch next year. From the looks of things, designers have graced the pickups with a new grille and projector headlamp arrays as well as LED taillamps. It's unclear whether the upgraded rear light arrays well be standard equipment or optional as on the 2013 Ram 1500.

More importantly, we've finally been given a glimpse of truck's interior, and the new cabin will feature a massive touchscreen interface. With a screen even larger than the 8.4-inch Uconnect piece found on so many Chrysler products, it will be interesting to see exactly what sort of functionality the new tech will bring to the table.

In addition, the 2014 Ram HD looks to leverage a revised suspension design. According to Inside Line, the front multilink array appears to have gone the way of a single trailing arm setup and the shock absorbers look to have been relocated as well. According to our photographers, Ram engineers were working particularly hard to keep the trucks locked up in enclosed trailers at night. The powertrain picture for these heavy-duty haulers remains unclear at this time.

Word has it these machines will bow at the 2013 Chicago Auto Show. Check out our gallery for a closer look.

      I love how in the lead picture, one towing mirror is flipped out, the other in. Can't wait to see what the actual announcements are in regards to the HD.

        Probably a co-worker prank. Some people get worked up too easily, so they become targets for stuff like that.

      Should be interesting to see how the new Ram compares to the new Ford and Chevy's. About to be a good time for truck buyers. It might just be the angle of the photo, but that touchscreen looks normal in size but turned vertical, in a portrait position?.. interesting.

      Doesn't look enormous enough. I think semis are still bigger.

        It's a heavy duty truck that will pull your house off it's foundation. How small is it supposed to be?

      I'm partial to Super Dutys, but that is one good looking truck. The new Dodges are nice. Chevy on the other hand just seems very stale. GM seems to take their truck buyers for granted, and update very little during the vehicle's life cycle, whereas Ford especially, and Dodge to some extent, update as soon as they can. (Yes, I know GM is coming out with a "new" truck soon.)

      Hopefully the Dodge is great, the only way Ford will produce an even better super duty is if the others elevate performance. This all helps me.

      Looks like they improved the headlights! wasn't a the biggest fan of the last ones. Otherwise I loved the looks of this truck.
