FindItMore | The 2019 Ram 1500 is the finest 1500 that Ram has ever made. It offers old-fashioned horsepower with plenty of modern comforts and amenities. Want to hear more? Let’s take a look at seven great traits of the 2019 Ram 1500 model lineup.
1 – Outstanding standard engine
Not everyone has the money to spring for the most powerful engine that a manufacturer offers. Many choose to stick with the base engine, and it helps when the it is an impressive one. The Ram 1500s standard 3.6-liter V6 generates 305 horsepower which makes it more muscular than the base engine found in the competition.
2 – Towing capacity
Truck manufacturers love having bragging rights when it comes to towing capacity and the 2019 Ram 1500 doesn’t disappoint. When equipped with the 5.7-liter Hemi eTorque V8 engine, it can pull up to 12,750 pounds. This makes it a more capable choice for towing than the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500, one of its primary competitors.
3 – Plush amenities
For many buyers, trucks are expected to serve as rugged workhorses, hauling big loads and cruising over uncivilized terrain. Yet, on the other hands, they’re expected to provide a premium luxury ride. It’s a tall order but it’s one that the 2019 Ram 1500 is able to fill. When properly optioned, the 1500’s interior is more luxury car-like than truck-like.
4 – 12-inch touch screen
Ram has blessed the 1500 pickup with one of the largest touch screens in the marketplace and this is good news for those who like the idea of having a vehicle with an interface that is impressive. According to Champion RAM (Lansing, MI), the mammoth size of this touch screen frankly provides a tablet-like user experience right on the truck’s dash.
5 – Smooth handling
According to the US Census, the average American spends roughly 200 hours per year driving to and from work. One thing that can make a long commute more bearable is a smooth ride, and this is something that the 1500 pickup provides. It cruises over rough road surfaces with ease.
Plus, the Ram 1500’s base engine comes with mild-hybrid technology that allows it to deliver solid fuel economy, 20/25 mpg city/highway.
6 – Broad range of driver-assist amenities
Ram has equipped the 1500 pickup with driver-assist features designed to take the stress out of daily driving. The lineup includes technologies like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, a lane-departure warning system, a 360-degree surround-view camera, and self-parking technology.
7 – Comfortable seats
Certain details can make or break the driving experience, and one of those is seat comfort. People usually associate comfortable seats with luxury cars. Fortunately, some trucks offer this benefit, and comfortable seats are part of the package with the 2019 Ram 1500.
8 – Wide selection of trim levels
Since trucks have no real substitutes in the automotive world, customers expect them to provide many choices. In particular, a varied range of trim levels is designed to meet the needs of a broad cross-section of buyers.
There’s a Spartan base trim for those seeking the most economical solution, and a Rebel trim that’s designed for the off-road set. Top trims like the Laramie Longhorn and the Limited cater to truck buyers who want the most premium amenities.
