All-New 2019 Ram 1500 - The Updates

The 2019 Ram 1500 comes with total interior and exterior overhauls from the previous model year, still carrying over the iconic status of this Ram pickup into the latest rugged version. Lighter by over 200 pounds with a high-strength steel frame, new available signature LED headlamps and 22-inch aluminum wheels debuting, this new Ram truck makes its arrival felt.

From a performance perspective, the 2019 Ram 1500 still dominates. This all-new Ram truck carries over a base 3.6-liter V6 engine and eight-speed shiftable automatic transmission from the year before, now also offering an available 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine with eTorque technology to improve efficiency while maintain an already impressive output. As a result, this new Ram pickup truck enjoys best-in-class V8 engine towing status, supporting up to 12,750 pounds when properly equipped.

The 2019 Ram 1500 enhances its driver-assist technology reputation through over 100 standard and available safety and security features. It returns the innovative class-exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System for organized storage, but now debuts a new 115-volt power outlet and two lockable, drainable storage bins with LED lighting. With standard ultra-fast USB charging ports, best-in-class interior storage volume, a class-exclusive reconfigurable center console and more, it's not a surprise to see this new Ram model earn the most luxurious truck in light-duty pickup class status.

2018 Ram 1500 - Continuing to Captivate

And while the 2019 Ram 1500 clearly has a lot to offer with its redesign and enhancements, the 2018 Ram 1500 still offers exceptional value as a rugged full-size pickup truck with well-rounded qualities.

From class-leading fuel economy with an EcoDiesel V6 engine to class-exclusive coil-spring rear suspensions and active-level four-corner air suspensions respectively, commuting efficiency, towing performance and off-road confidence remain at peak levels.

This new Ram truck comes with available five or 8.4-inch touchscreens, hosting Uconnect infotainment, while the latest model year incorporates an impressive 12-inch surface.
