The Redesigned 2019 RAM 1500

RAM burst onto the pickup truck market with a reputation for innovation, and that's held true with their redesign of the RAM 1500. One of RAM's defining characteristics has always been comfort. Being the only truck manufacturer to employ a coilspring suspension, RAM's comfortable ride has been unmatched for years. But rather than sit on their best-in-class laurels, RAM has further improved that comfort on the 2019 model. Our Ames customers have raved about the 2019 RAM 1500's driving dynamics, both on the job and off. And it's not only the suspension that adds to the RAM's superior feel. 

The 2019 RAM 1500 offers the most comfortable interior yet, from the base Tradesman to the impressively luxurious Limited model. Ames buyers have been blown away by the RAM 1500's optional premium leather interior, and the rear seats now have an additional 4 inches of legroom. This makes the RAM 1500 perfect for families who need a vehicle that can do double duty, and takes RAM's already winning comfort a step further.

In addition to its focus on comfort, the 2019 RAM pickup truck also comes equipped with all the latest technology. Even the Tradesman comes with a great touchscreen and a backup camera. But RAM trucks are also available with the latest safety and convenience technology for 2019, including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, a surround-view camera system, automatic wipers, and a self-parking system. These features are very desirable in a modern pickup truck, but just because it's tech-savvy and comfortable doesn't mean the 2019 RAM truck is any less powerful on the job.

Powertrain & Capability

The 2019 RAM 1500 has a great lineup of engine options, especially considering the addition of the new 3.0l diesel. The base engine on the 2019 RAM is a 3.6-liter V6 that offers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Unlike some competitors that limit their larger engines to higher trim levels, RAM's 5.7-liter V8 offering 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque is available on all trim levels aside from the diesel-exclusive HFE. This V8 offers a great balance of power and efficiency, and is just as comfortable on the job as it is out on the road. RAM has also improved towing and payload capacity for its 2019 pickup truck.

A big improvement for the 2019 model is a lighter, more rigid chassis, which results in a higher towing and payload capacity. Capable of towing up to 11,500 lbs, the 2019 RAM 1500 ranks up there with the top competitors in the segment. Of course, numbers aren't everything, and RAM has incorporated some great technologies to make towing easier than ever. RAM's special blind spot monitor takes the length of the trailer into account, giving drivers valuable feedback on their surroundings. Technology like trailer sway control and braking also help make towing a breeze, and will certainly be appreciated by those who frequently tow a trailer. The 2019 RAM 1500's HFE trim will also be attractive to those who will need to haul long distances, as it combines high torque with impressive efficiency. The benefits of the 3.0l diesel will definitely noticeable when it's time to fill the tank.
