The Ram 1500 has been completely redesigned for 2019. Increased towing and hauling capabilities make the new Ram a viable option for drivers who plan to move heavy loads. The 2019 truck is also lighter than previous models by almost 225 pounds, making it easy to maneuver in a tight spot. Still, the new Ram manages to deliver a stronger steel frame construction to bolster performance and safety.
What's new for the 2019 Ram 1500?
Thoroughly redesigned, the 2019 Ram 1500 takes on the competition with massive towing and hauling capabilities and best-in-class interior refinement.
New technology includes a massive, 12-inch touchscreen display that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for complete smartphone integration. Multiple USB ports keep your device collection ready for action. The Ram's sharp new exterior design sets it apart from competitors, turning heads with its rugged new grille and aggressive stance.
How does the 2019 Ram 1500 stand apart from other full-size trucks?
As always, this full-size pickup offers best-in-class interior refinement. Whether you choose the extended Quad cab or the crew cab (increasing rear-seat leg room), you'll enjoy high-quality cabin materials and a solid build. This cabin will weather years of driving without reducing to squeaks and rattles. With seven trim models from which to choose, you can enjoy everything from easy-to-clean vinyl floor mats to supple leather upholstery.
The Ram's new 12-inch touchscreen infotainment interface is the biggest in the business. With it, you won't have to worry about fat fingering the wrong app, even when you've got most of your attention on the road ahead.
This pickup truck also features a class-exclusive coil-spring rear suspension that creates a smooth ride without sacrificing towing and hauling performance. Compared to other trucks, the Ram 1500 always feels both composed and refined.
The Ram's new eTorque technology acts as a mild hybrid engine assist, storing electricity in a lithium battery. This battery sends power to the engine stop-start system to help ensure a smooth performance. The engine stop-start system, in turn, helps you save fuel when you're stopped at a light.
How capable is the newly redesigned Ram 1500?
This new truck competes with the big dogs, giving you increased towing and hauling capabilities to rival the Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Depending on powertrain and body configurations, the Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds. That's more than enough capacity to move your family camper or boat. If you've got heavy machinery to tow, this truck has you covered. Max payloads also depend upon which powertrain and body style configurations you choose. Properly equipped, the 2019 Ram 1500 can haul up to 2,300 pounds' worth of construction supplies or home improvement equipment.
What safety features are available?
When you choose the 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie, Longhorn, or Limited trim models, you can add a number of high-tech safety upgrades. These include an automatic braking feature, which jumps into action when it senses an oncoming crash, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in damages. When you need to swing this full-size truck into a parallel space, the surround-view camera system and self-parking technology make things simple.
