Before the All-New 2019 Ram 1500 takes to the road as the strongest Ram 1500 ever, the no-compromise truck is turning heads at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The next-generation Ram 1500 revealed at NAIAS in Detroit, and is putting on a show of its own with an all-new look, class-leading luxury1, enhanced capability, efficient and powerful powertrains and cutting-edge technology.
Improved Efficiency and Performance
The All-New 2019 Ram 1500 flexes its muscle while getting trim, eliminating 225 pounds — despite an influx of additional content — through the use of advanced high-strength steels. With 98 percent of the frame and 54 percent of the core body structure constructed of advanced high-strength steels, the new Ram 1500 is not only lighter, it’s also the strongest Ram 1500 ever. Coupled with new features like the available eTorque mild hybrid system on the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 and 5.7L HEMI® V8, the no-compromise All-New 2019 Ram 1500 features greatly improved efficiency, boosted performance and enhanced capability.
The Latest Entertainment and Safety Tech
When it comes to technology, the All-New 2019 Ram 1500 redefines what a pickup truck can be, and marks an evolutionary milestone in the history of Ram Trucks. The list of state-of-the-art tech features is seemingly endless, and includes a class-exclusive2 available 12-inch Uconnect® touchscreen with split-screen capability and tailor-made graphics for the various Ram models; the available 4th-generation Uconnect system with enhanced processing power; available SiriusXM® 360L with customizable on-demand listening and exclusive content3; a powerful available 900-watt, 19-speaker Harman Kardon® audio system; new available 360-degree Surround View Camera4; available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop, Hold and Go5; available Blind Spot Monitoring6; available Forward Collision Warning Plus7; and available LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist8. Put it all together, and the All-New 2019 Ram 1500 is the most technologically advanced Ram Truck ever.
Increased Towing and Payload
Of course, the All-New 2019 Ram 1500 is built to get the job done, and to get it done right. That means dramatically improved towing and hauling capacity. The 12,700 pounds of max towing9 marks a 20 percent increase in towing power, and 2,300 pounds of max payload9 marks a 22 percent increase. The result is an All-New 2019 Ram 1500 that gets to the worksite, or to the weekend getaway, more efficiently and without compromise — hauling more, with fewer trips and with more efficient powertrains.
Updated Exterior Appearance and Interior Comfort
The All-New 2019 Ram 1500 is built tough as nails, and is engineered and constructed to look the part. The new exterior design stands apart on the road, off the road and at the worksite, with a new “unbreakable” interlocking design theme. Up front, the chiseled “R-A-M” grilles define the new face of Ram, while the available LED Adaptive Front Lighting System provides an unmistakable, signature look. The completely redesigned, luxurious interior is built for comfort and style, with authentic premium materials, colors and textures, including available hand-wrapped leather trim. Active noise cancellation (V8 models) and acoustic glass reduce ambient sounds, contributing and an exceptionally quiet, serene interior.
The Best from Top to Bottom
Other upgrades and notable features of the All-New 2019 Ram 1500 include a 4-inch increase in cab size; the most rear-seat legroom in its class on Crew Cab models2; more leather and real wood surfaces than Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado10; the best ride and handling with class-exclusive multi-link coil suspension and class-exclusive available Active-Level™ four-corner air suspension systems2; best-in-class standard pickup bed volume (53.7 cubic feet)2; class-exclusive available RamBox® Cargo Management System2; the most entry-level V6 gas horsepower (305 horsepower) in its class2; and much, much more.
