Vehicle Profile: 2019 Ram 1500
Getting to the top of the competitive full-size pickup segment is no easy task. It requires a deft combination of power and capability, intuitive technologies and style and presence. No other truck blends these qualities as seamlessly as the 2019 Ram 1500, at once a mighty specimen capable of finishing tough jobs and a well-equipped and well-appointed luxury ride. The all-new Ram 1500 stands above the pack, and it has the hardware — including the titles of 2019 North American Truck of the Year™ and 2019 MotorTrend Truck of the Year® — to back up its standing.
When you need to complete a formidable task, nothing delivers quite the same as a burly V8 engine. With the 2019 Ram 1500 and its new 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with eTorque Mild Hybrid System, you get 12,750 pounds of maximum pulling power — more than any other V8 in the segment can offer.1 Even with all its might, eTorque enables this legendary HEMI® V8 to achieve best-in-class available V8 4x4 fuel economy2 and available driving range.3
The 2019 Ram 1500 isn’t one of the most capable trucks simply because of its powerful engines. Its might starts with its frame, which consists of 98 percent high-strength steel to help enable a max payload capacity of up to 2,300 pounds.4 With the available class-exclusive Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension,5 auto-load leveling allows more confidence in the security of your cargo. A first-of-its-kind 60/40 split multifunction tailgate makes loading in and out easier, accommodates up to 2,000 pounds and works harmoniously with the class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System to turn your Ram 1500 into a mobile workstation.
Style and luxury
With its rugged and refined exterior, the 2019 Ram 1500 makes a bold first impression whether you’re pulling up to the worksite or a high-end restaurant. It only gets better when you climb inside and experience the most luxurious cabin in the full-size pickup class — the Ram 1500 Limited is especially exclusive, offering 58 percent more leather than the competition.6 Even when you’re doing the toughest blue-collar work, the Ram 1500 makes you feel like part of the upper crust; with best-in-class rear legroom, a class-exclusive rear fold-down center console and a class-exclusive available reclining rear seat, the same courtesy is extended to all your passengers.
Beyond its sumptuous surfaces and superior spaciousness, the 2019 Ram 1500 is one of the most functional vehicle interiors you’ll find anywhere. It boasts best-in-class storage volume at 151.1 liters, including class-exclusive in-floor storage and rear under-seat storage,5 making for almost twice as much storage as the next best truck in the segment.4 Your storage needs are even easier with a class-exclusive reconfigurable center console, which can easily house your laptop or electronic device and keep it charged with class-exclusive Type-C USB high-speed charging ports.5 Pair all this with available Ram Bins — now 5.5 inches longer — and the inside of the Ram 1500 is simply more user-friendly than its competitors.
The multi-award-winning 2019 Ram 1500 doesn’t just trade on the authority that comes with its name. It builds its legacy by getting better than it’s ever been, and you reap the benefits in terms of capabilities and comfort. Experience the new Ram 1500 at your local Ram dealership.
