There’s nothing better than a fresh start, and the 2019 Ram 1500 is serving up just that. Completely redesigned, this model has a host of upgraded features that will excite even the most skeptical of buyers.
You read that right. The 2019 Ram 1500’s most notable change is the eTorque system that uses a 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack to pump out more torque by using regenerative braking to feed energy into the battery pack located behind the rear seats. It comes standard on the V6 models and is optional with the V8.
A new chassis on the 2019 Ram 1500 made of 98 percent high-strength steel drops 100 pounds in weight, while new body construction saves an additional 100 pounds to increase maximum payload and towing capacity. Updated variable-rate coil springs in the read keep you from bottoming out when hauling gear, and if you’re at a work site or loading materials into the bed, the electric release tailgate is a life saver.
There are now six trim levels: Tradesman, Big Horn, Rebel, Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited. Three new headlight designs, seven grille options, and wheels that grow from 18 inches to 22 provide more than enough ways to make the 2019 Ram 1500 unique to you. You can take it even further by adding special appearance packages. Some regions even have their own 2019 Ram 1500 editions, like this 2019 Ram 1500 sport edition exclusive to Canada.
Contrast stitching caught our eye in the base Tradesman trim, while the Big Horn ups the style game with two-tone trim inside. If red is your color, you’ll find touches of it in the Rebel, and the leather seats in the Laramie now sport suede bolster inserts. Top it all off with decorative accents in the leather and wood trim inside the Longhorn. If you want to ball out, the Limited is perfect with its leather covered interior, extra wood and metal trims, luxurious stitching, and Harman Kardon sound system. This is the crème de la crème of high-performance truck options.
Small touchscreens are a thing of the past. Drivers will love the available 12-inch touchscreen, which is the largest available among light duty pickups. An available 7-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display is customizable, so you can get a quick snapshot of performance with just a quick glimpse. USB ports keep your devices charged up and ready to go.
When you drive a truck like the Ram 1500, you can rest assured you’re protected by the best safety systems out there. Largest-in-class brakes give you safer towing and bring you from 60 to 0 miles per hour seven feet sooner than the outgoing model. Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection helps you maneuver when backing in, and available systems include the Surround View Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, and Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist.
