The Ram 1500 will receive a facelift in 2017. It won't get an aluminum body though. It will stick with steel. The aluminum won't be used until a full redesign in 2020.

This is in contrast to Ford and GM which are switching to aluminum body panels in the fall of 2018 and this fall respectively.

Fiat Chrysler chief executive Sergio Marchionne remarked in May that using aluminum "is better suited in other vehicles than pickup trucks." Chrysler at the time confirmed an update of the duty Ram 1500 in 2017.
Ram 1500 to receive significant facelift in 2017, continue to use steel instead of aluminum

Going off of some renders i have seen, i won't mind seeing this happen. RAM seems to be great when it comes to design so i wouldn't be too concerned about if it will turn out good or not.

You've seen some renders? Could you post them up here? I'd love to take a look at them.

I find that most of the trucks look relatively the same, so I am not expecting a radical redesign.
