2019 Ram 1500 | Yukon, OK
The 2019 Ram 1500 arrives with a full redesign. Featuring an updated appearance, better performance, and more technology, the Ram 1500 focuses on driver convenience without sacrificing capability.
Engine and Performance
The base Ram 1500 features a 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with the brand’s new eTorque mild-hybrid system to bolster power and fuel efficiency. A 48-volt motor replaces the conventional starter and alternator, to provide a bit more torque. The V6 engine produces a healthy dose of 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque.
The 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine is available with the mild-hybrid system. The standard engine produces 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. V8 engines equipped with the mild-hybrid system benefit from another 130 lb-ft of torque.
A coil-sprung rear suspension and two-valve shocks provide a smooth ride on par with a luxury sedan. An eight-speed automatic transmission comes standard. The advanced transmission keeps things quiet and improves fuel economy. Grille shutters and an air splitter improve the truck’s aerodynamics.
Drivers can choose to increase ride comfort with an available self-leveling air suspension. Large brake rotors work well with the 18-inch wheels. The 2019 Ram 1500 does away with the conventional mechanical brake in favor of an electronic parking brake.
Interior and Technology
Premium materials, including leather, metal, and soft-touch plastics, reinforce the luxury styling of the Ram 1500. A standard 8.4-inch touchscreen display comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability. Drivers have the option of upgrading to a 12-inch touchscreen display and five USB ports. Advanced safety systems, such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Mitigation, put this truck on par with a luxury vehicle.
Even with its opulent technology inside, the 2019 Ram 1500 is still as capable as ever. A properly equipped model can tow up to 12,700 pounds and haul 2,300 pounds. The interior bins are larger than in the previous model, providing drivers more options for storing cargo.
