Performance

The 2019 RAM 1500 full-size pickup has shed 225 pounds, has a new high-strength steel frame giving increased stiffness and durability delivering Best-in-Class towing of up to 12,750 pounds and up to 2,300 pounds of payload, has a new mild hybrid power system for increased fuel efficiency, and more interior space.

The 2019 RAM 1500 is quiet and comfortable on paved roads. However, if you're planning on driving your RAM 1500 off-road quite often for pleasure or for work, the 2019 RAM 1500 Rebel is the truck for you. This truck was designed for off-roading. It's got four-wheel-drive, 33-inch tires, your choice of coil spring or four-corner air suspension, and rear differential locking for climbing or descending steep hills. The air suspension is adjustable from normal to off-road one and off-road two levels for increased travel when climbing over obstacles. There are heavy-duty skid-plates in front and underneath the transfer-case, in the event, you come across any rocks. And the Duratrac tires have an excellent gripping capability.

Towing is a breeze with the new RAM 1500's tow-haul mode, with an integrated trailer brake controller, that when set, automatically changes the mapping for both the transmission and the throttle response, keeping it in a higher gear so it slows down quicker when you take your foot off the gas. Cedar Rapids drivers will feel confident in knowing what's going on inside the engine with the specialized temperature gauge showing real-time temperatures for the coolant, transmission, oil, and oil pressure-all shown on the optional 12-inch infotainment display.

The 2019 RAM 1500 offers three engines to choose from, all paired with the Torqueflite eight-speed automatic transmission:

  1. The 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine with 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque using the new eTorque Mild Hybrid System blends performance and fuel-saving technologies gives a maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds and has an estimated EPA rating of 17 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.
  2. The 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine with 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque gives a maximum towing capacity of 11,610 pounds and an estimated EPA of 15 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.
  3. The Best-in-Class 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine with eTorque is standard on most trim levels. This V6 is rated as Best-in-Class 4x4 Fuel Economy and Best-in-Class 4x4 driving range of up to 624 miles with an estimated EPA if 15 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.

The 2019 RAM 1500 has a low drag coefficient of .357, and the lowest frontal drag coefficient of 13.0 CDa in its class. How did they do it? The hood is elevated for air deflection, the roofline is slanted rearward directing airflow to the rear spoiler and over the truck instead into the bed, the Active Air Dam system automatically extends downward 2.5 inches as the truck increases to 30 mph, and the Active-Level air suspension system automatically lowers the truck at high speeds to reduce drag.


Interior

The all-new 2019 RAM 1500 now has the largest-in-class pinch-and-zoom 12-inch touchscreen with Uconnect 12.0, Navigation, and SiriusXM with 360L. This screen is giant. There's enough room for real-time navigation on the top half, and Sirius XM radio on the bottom half so switching between screens is minimal. There are a ton of options giving Cedar Rapids owners information about what's going on in the engine as well as controls to keep the cabin comfortable  All of the touch-buttons are easy to see on the brightly illuminated screen. The 7-inch full-color HD 3-D digital cluster display is also impressive and is easy for drivers to find information.

Passengers will be just as happy as the driver in the 2019 RAM 1500. There is a ton of ambient light coming in through the large windows and the 10-square foot dual-pane panoramic sunroof. It's got plenty of legroom, headroom, and Class-Exclusive features such as reclining rear seats and a back seat fold-down console.

There's so much storage in this full-size truck that it is a blessing and a curse. Plenty of room to store things, but remembering where you put it in the challenge! There are 40-liters of storage space under the seats, or fold the back seat up to create enough space for all of your hunting gear.
