Read on to learn about the powertrain, design, and safety features of the 2019 RAM 1500
What is new for the 2019 model year?
As mentioned before, the RAM 1500 is a redesign, meaning it is fresh from the ground up. To start with, the overall weight of the Ram 1500 has been reduced by 225 pounds. The new frame uses advanced materials and modern engineering to increase stiffness and durability. The end result is 12,750 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload. Next, there is an all-new eTorque system. This delivers increased fuel efficiency for both the V-6 and V-8 engine configurations. In terms of technology, the RAM gets some nice updates, including the new Uconnect 4C with an incredible 12-inch touchscreen. RAM even updated the 1500’s safety department with new technologies such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and ready alert braking.
Can you tell me about the power of this pickup?
The RAM has a variety of engine and transmission options. The new eTorque version of the Pentastar V-6 is what you will find on most trims in the lineup. It is specifically engineered for ‘truck jobs’ and puts out 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. It also features some modern technology that results in a perfect balance of power and fuel efficiency. These include wide-range variable valve timing and two-step variable valve lift. If you need a little more power, the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 should be your choice, as it pumps out 395 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque. The HEMI uses performance-enhancing and fuel-saving technologies such as variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation. All 2019 Ram 1500 engines are paired to a fully electronic TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. There are two versions of though – models outfitted with the V-6 use an FCA-produced TorqueFlite 850RE transmission. The V-8 powered trucks use an upgraded TorqueFlite 8HP75 transmission.
