This year marks one of the best redesigns in the history of Ram, ever! The fourth generation Ram 1500 lasted exactly 10 years, and we all knew that the time for a redesign was imminent and thankfully, Ram delivered. The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is one of the most advanced midsize pickup trucks to date, and there’s so much to talk about both inside and out. Read on to learn more about all the changes and advancements included with the new Ram, here at your west Edmonton Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and Ram dealer!
The Biggest Redesign, Ever!
What makes this year’s model so significant is that it marks one of the biggest redesigns in Ram truck history. For 2019, the Ram 1500 is all-new and its primary focus is just that: design. The 2019 Ram 1500 takes on a more aerodynamic approach to its exterior, incorporating a much smoother front end, thanks to its new front grille. It’s definitely hard to say goodbye to the classic crosshair-design grille that’s made the Ram so iconic. But it’s brand-new live active grille shutters give the new Ram more aerodynamic speed on the front end, making it better for performance and fuel-efficiency.
Fuel Efficiency In Mind
Speaking of which, another great t part about the 2019 Ram 1500 is that it’s now lighter than ever before, making it better for fuel consumption. The all-new Ram is 225 lbs lighter than last year’s iteration, thanks to its all-new chassis and body designs—but it doesn’t stop there. For the first time ever on a Ram truck, a brand-new eTorque mild hybrid system adds a 48-volt lithium ion battery for both the 3.6L Pentastar V6 and the 5.7L HEMI V8 engines. All of these factors combine to give the 2019 Ram 1500 an incredible fuel consumption rate of 13.6L/100 km combined, making it one of the most fuel-efficient trucks on the market.
Same Great Performance
While some of these changes may prompt concerns with Ram loyalists, we’re here to tell you that the 2019 Ram 1500 still remains one of the most capable pickup trucks on the market. In fact, the complete redesign of this new Ram actually made it even better! Both the maximum payload and towing capacities for the all-new Ram 1500 have increased this year, with a max towing of 12,750 lbs. (5,783 kg) and max payload of 2,300 lbs. (1,043 kg).
A Touch of Luxury For The Toughest Jobs
While we’ve certainly gone in-depth with the Ram exterior, there’s even more to talk about with the Ram’s incredible new interior. Once you step inside, you’ll notice the additional leather and wood trimming for added luxury and comfort not seen or felt in pickup trucks before. You also have the choice to upgrade your Uconnect system to include a 12-inch touchscreen—the biggest there’s ever been on a Ram truck! The new design also prompts the 2019 Ram 1500 for the best-in-class rear legroom available on a pickup truck, with up to 1,145 mm (45.1 in) worth of space. You also have the option of adding the available reclining rear seats for a truly comfortable ride, even to the point where you’ll feel tempted to find someone else to drive your Ram!
