2019 RAM Overview Iowa City

In the past, full-size trucks were meant for work, and that's what people bought them for. It's not like that anymore. Most people use their trucks for day-to-day activities like driving back and forth to the office, getting the kids to soccer practice, and stopping at the grocery store. Customers still want to drive a truck, they love the look of a truck, but they want the creature comforts of a luxury car. RAM has heard these demands, and they have delivered.


RAM has been at the forefront of luxury interior and exterior truck design. The 2019 RAM 1500, however, they have doubled down on comfort, convenience, and style. Don't worry though, they haven't left capability behind.

The 2019 RAM 1500 is 225 pounds lighter than its predecessor. Engineers utilized high-strength steels that require less metal to meet design requirements, and they've incorporated the use of much lighter aluminum in engine and transmission cross members, and composite upper control arms for the front suspension; resulting in a max payload of 2,300 pounds. Even with the weight-loss, this full-size powerhouse can still tow a maximum of 12,750 pounds.

Iowa City drivers won't be disappointed with any of three engines-all eight-speed transmissions: 5.7L HEMI V8 engine, 395 horsepower, with eTorque mild hybrid system blends performance with fuel-saving technologies and was rated best-in-class V8 towing of up to 12,750 pounds. The 5.7L HEMI V8 engine with 395 horsepower can tow up to 11,610 pounds. And the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine, 305 horsepower, with eTorque can tow up to 7,730 pounds.

Every trim level gets at least two interior options: one all-black and another light-colored option unique to each trim level. All models come standard with an electronic parking brake, passive two-mode shocks for a better ride, a flat rear floor, larger storage bins, Active Tuned Mass Modules and noise-canceling technology for an exceptionally quiet ride.

The new 2019 RAM 1500 has over 100 standard and available safety and security features, including new Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path, Trailer Detection, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning-Plus, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, and 360 Surround View Camera.
