Unbreakable Guts and Innovative Glory - The All-New 2019 RAM 1500

The half-ton pickup is something of a symbol of the tried-and-true American work ethic, and modern trucks offer more abilities and state-of-the-art features than ever before. But where recent years have turned out some impressively advanced competitors, the all-new 2019 RAM 1500 comes out on top with technologies never before seen in a pickup. But where offerings such as a mild-hybrid system, one of the most comfortable rides in its class, and next-generation electronics and safety might give pause to some purists, the experience behind the wheel is one long-time owners will still find familiar.

2019 RAM 1500 - At a Glance

The 2019 RAM 1500 is still offered in Tradesman, Big Horn, Rebel, Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited trims, with 12 available paint colors and 15 wheel design choices. Beyond the names, however, are completely new inner workings: the strong and efficiency-minded high-strength frame is 100 lbs. lighter over the outgoing truck, and adds up to a total of 225 lbs. of weight savings over the 2018 model-all without the compromise of aluminum.

Exterior Design
Lighter though it may be, the 1500 has lost none of its formidable presence. In fact, it's grown in height, width, and length while it's body-on-frame chassis features eye-catching, aggressive treatments. Headlights are available in halogen, full LED, and full LED with adaptive front lighting, and the six different grille styles are tied together with a theme of "interlocking" elements to underscore this truck's unbreakable nature. It also adds to the 1500's drag coefficient of .357-the best of any pickup.

Interior Design
The rugged appeal of the 1500's cabin continues in the 2019 model, which has swollen to become the half-ton market's largest and most customizable truck cab. A new 12-inch, fully configurable Uconnect 4 infotainment system has split-screen productivity functions-similar to a laptop computer-and up to five USB ports can be found. Quieter at speed, and featuring more storage capacity than the nearest competitor, the 1500's cockpit serves as the perfect mobile office for the tough. Additionally, some models can be had with a panoramic moon roof and leather upholstery for a more premium feel.

3.6-liter Pentastar V6

Both the Pentastar V6 and HEMI V8 engines known to fans of the 1500 return with some new tricks up their sleeve in the all-new 2019 truck. Foremost is the arrival of the new 48-volt mild-hybrid "eTorque" system. Unlike in a model like the Pacifica minivan, however, this technology replaces the alternator while providing similar efficiency and electrical benefits. Standard with Pentastar engines and optional with the HEMI, those who opt for the latter can see a 130 lb-ft boost in torque over the already-impressive 410 lb-ft number.

Coming standard with these two mighty engine offerings is the versatile and formidable TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. Although familiar in name, this next-gen shifting technology uses new computer controllers to ensure that your 1500 is always in the right gear, at the right time, for whatever your job requires. So versatile is this gear box that it is programmed with over 40 individual shift maps for optimal efficiency and performance.
