The 2019 RAM is a heavyweight this year in terms of added features, capabilities, interior storage solutions, and advanced technology. And that's a real understatement, to be fair. Motor Trend ran it through its thorough gauntlet of testing and yet it emerged, not just unscathed, but the proud winner out of all the trucks tested: the "2019 Truck of the Year". That's saying something in the very full and very capable truck segment of today's market!

Would You Mind Outlining a Few of the Many Features of this Pickup?
We would love to! First off, the brakes are 14.9-inches (largest in the category), and the fact that there is 98-percent high-strength steel, making it RAM's strongest truck frame ever. In front of the driver, look for an available 7-inch Driver Info Digital Cluster Display with 3-D graphics and in full color, and then there is the dual-pane panoramic sunroof to consider, with 10-square-foot! The 1500 will tow up to a Best-In-Class 12,750-pounds, has a gargantuan 12-inch touchscreen for split-screen applications, can employ a full-circle Surround View Camera, and has Android Auto/Apple CarPlay compatibility. Consider the election as well for devoted toggle switches on a bank, all-new full LED Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) as an option, and sliding & reclining seats for row two. The tailgate itself has lift assist, a dampening effect when opening, and there's even a 60/40 split-tailgate available to purchase! The split-tailgate enables even more functionality in that workers (and forklifts) can get closer to the truckbed than in the standard version, and yet it still holds up to 2,000-lbs when in the laid-down position. There is also a step that folds down with split-tailgate to enable easier access to the truckbed. If you're into sound quality, you will love the fact that this truck can come with a 900-watt amped Harman Kardon sound system with 19-speakers and a 10-inch subwoofer! We would be remiss if we didn't mention the popular RamBox: an available class-exclusive cargo management system within the truckbed sidewalls that is lockable, LED-lit, and drainable! These storage bins can additionally be fitted with 115-volt/400-watt outlets, perfect for plugging in the stereo at the worksite without letting the mosquitoes into the cabin)! On the exterior of the 1500, the active sleekness and present-day styling are cleverly functional, with a 9-percent aerodynamic enhancement on the 2019 truck (i.e. Quad Cab 4x2 has a coefficient of drag is 0.357).

Is It true That the 2019 Ram 1500 Has Excellent Engine Choices?
Yes! There are three conceivable engines that RAM provides, encompassing two of them with eTorque. The eTorque-equipped engines partner up with its ally in the form of a 48-Volt battery-based belt-driven motor generator (instead of a traditional alternator) to provide torque at key moments, among other fuel-centric benefits. Just a note for those playing at home, the 1500 is rear-wheel-drive standard but can be bought as a 4WD. Those two engines that can have the eTorque system are the second-gen 3.6L Pentastar V6 and the celebrated 5.7L HEMI V8. The third engine choice is, in actuality, the 5.7L V-8 however, with no eTorque supporting because some drivers may not desire all of the extra capabilities. All three engines are saddled up appropriately with a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission. The V6 engine with eTorque attains 305-hp and 269 lb-ft of torque (90 lb-ft less mid-range torque if eTorque is not there) and can tow up to 7,730-lbs. The HEMI V8 reaps 395-hp and 410 lb-ft of torque (130 lb-ft less without eTorque). With the air suspension and the eTorque-furnished 5.7L, the RAM 15000 has a payload capacity of 2,300-lbs and towing aptitude of 12,750-lbs! Without eTorque configuration, it will tow up 11,610-lbs (with the 5.7L). The HEMI V8 version further puts the cherry on top with a new standard electric engine-cooling fan (850-watt) that runs Pulse Width Modulation as required.

How Are is the Air Suspension System for Towing?
There is both a third-gen, 5-link coil-spring rear suspension or a 4-corner air suspension system available as choices for the 2019 RAM pickup. The Class-Exclusive Active-Level Four Corner air suspension will detect immediately any weight and commence its load-leveling process. The air suspension further customizes the experience for the owners in that it can physically lower the 1500 for easier access in and out of the truckbed, using the key-fob! In a similar functionality, the truck self-lowers about 0.6" when at higher speeds on the freeway, for best aerodynamics.

Thinking of a 2019 Ram 1500 for Yourself?
