Dodge’s new 2019 Ram 1500 has a wide array of changes truck enthusiasts are sure to love. The new truck is lighter, more fuel-efficient, has a quieter interior and is just plain better than its predecessors inside and out. It features a chiseled new, more aggressive-looking Ram logo, a 12-inch touchscreen and brand new hybrid technology. It all part of the ‘no compromise’ approach Dodge is unleashing on the full-size truck segment. Its unveiling was among the North American International Show in Detroit’s most highly anticipated events. And the Dodge Ram 1500 didn’t disappoint. If you want to see how great one is, take one for a spin at Chapman Las Vegas Dodge.

The 2019 Ram 1500 is 225 pounds lighter, can tow up to 12,750 pounds, features a Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen display that’s stunning and has new active systems that assist drivers and improve fuel efficiency. Plus, buyers can choose between a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 and a second-generation Pentastar V-6 3.6-liter engine. The trucks are FCA’s first to use 48-volt mild hybrid technology to improve start/stop function and boost torque. The new Ram’s strategic use of aluminum in the tailgate that can be controlled remotely using the key fob, with an interior switch or passive entry, helps reduce its weight and improve fuel efficiency. It also has lift assist with help from an oil and nitrogen-charged strut.

A front air dam that’s active and deploys at 35 m.p.h., new grille shutters that close to stop air flow when it isn’t needed, as well as an optional suspension system which lowers the truck, all combine to make the 2019 Ram 1500 9% more aerodynamic than the 2018 model. Buyers can also choose from 15 new wheels and 12 different colors. Its center stack is closer to the driver and higher. There are 5 USB ports in the center console, the upper glove box doubles as a shelf, plus the flat-load floor makes storing things inside easier.

Slide the three-position cup-holder tray under the 2019 Ram 1500’s center armrest and there’s a storage tub created to accommodate a 15-inch laptop. There’s also a lined storage compartment large enough to hang a file or fit a tablet when you lift the center armrest’s lid. The console’s rear has two more cup holders and a tablet holder conveniently positioned for rear passengers. Plus, the truck offers countless safety features both standard and optional. They include forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and adaptive front lighting.

With the new Ram 1500, produced at the company’s Sterling Heights Assembly Plant, FCA hopes to continue its momentum in pickup sales. They sold over 500,000 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups in 2017. Construction activity powered by strong economics boosted this versatile truck’s sales. With a hot truck market, industry analysts expect that trend to continue. The 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 has plenty to offer. Every aspect of the truck has been improved. It has a well-appointed interior, comfortable rear seats, as well as an optional infotainment system no other truck can match. The 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 looks like a big hit.
