The Best Truck in the World: A Look at the 2019 Ram 1500

Dodge's entry in the battle for pickup-truck supremacy is the all-new redesigned 2019 Ram 1500. This full-size truck is lighter, longer, and wider than last year's model; engineered to be more durable than ever before; and features a fresh upscale look that makes a big, bold statement.

Powerful Engines

Dodge's 2019 Ram 1500 offers three engines. All Ram 1500 trims come equipped with a stock 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with eTorque that produces 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. However, Ram lovers can also upgrade to one of the Ram 1500's two larger engines.

First, an available 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 delivers even more muscle, with 395 ponies under the hood and 410 pound-feet of torque. Second — and topping the engine ladder — is the same 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 but with the eTorque mild hybrid system, which provides a supplemental 130 pound-feet of torque and even improves gas mileage.

Responsive Performance

Put your foot on the gas and revel in the 2019 Dodge Ram 1500's powerful acceleration and smooth response. Paired with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, this truck easily climbs up to speed.

When properly equipped, Ram's new pickup effortlessly tows 12,750 pounds, and with Dodge's air suspension, it still rides and handles well. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, but you can opt for the available four-wheel drive powertrain system.


Ample Cargo Room

Dodge's all-new Ram 1500 has an impressive cargo volume of 61.5 cubic feet. Quickly step up into the bed with available power running boards, while the power-release tailgate makes accessing your cargo a cinch. Discover the class-exclusive optional RamBox cargo-management system, which is a durable, well-lit, and secure storage system that's neatly stowed away along the side rails of your Ram's bed.

Posh Interior

Don't be surprised to learn that the 2019 Dodge Ram 1500's biggest improvements are on the inside of the cabin. The top-of-the-line Limited is elegantly trimmed in leather, with a herringbone pattern on the doors, dash, and steering wheel.

The Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited come standard with ventilated front seats, and the Laramie Longhorn allows you to upgrade to ventilated rear seats as well. While heated second-row seats are standard on the Laramie Longhorn and Limited (and available on the Laramie), heated front seats are not available. However, even the back seats are spacious enough to accommodate up to three adults in quality comfort — so, you can always pull over and climb in the back seat if you get cold!

Depending on the trim level, all trims also come equipped with either 5.0-, 8.4-, or 12-inch touch-screen displays, as well as a wide range of standard and available tech features like a Uconnect infotainment system, smartphone compatibility, audio systems with six to nine speakers, and more.

Advanced Safety Technology

When you demand the best in active safety features, look no further than the 2019 Dodge Ram 1500. Loaded with sensors, cameras, and sophisticated software, it keeps you informed and in control. With Ram's new blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alerts and trailer detection, this high-tech truck automatically senses and accounts for the length of your trailer. A newly available 360-degree camera gives drivers a complete picture of the vehicle's surroundings, making parking, loading gear, and hitching up the trailer safer and more secure.
