What are the dimensions of the 2019 1500?

Immediately apparent when looking at the new 2019 RAM 1500 lineup is the amount of differentiation and individual character put into the six trim types. This is one of the more dramatically unique series of vehicles in any class market. Each configuration sports a different grille, headlight, design either coated in chrome, blacked-out matte, or body color. Sixteen wheel choices range from the utilitarian 18-inch variety to off-road specialized to big, shiny, and luxuriously powerful 22-inch designs. While the 1500 grows slightly in dimensions (four more inches to the wheelbase and 1.5-inches taller in bed height), aluminum body elements and a new 98% high-strength steel frame actually lightens the vehicle's overall weight by 225 pounds. Cabin design is offered in either a four-door-compact Quad Cab or the more functional full-four-door Crew Cab. Both offer seating for either five or six passengers, depending on whether you go for the front seat being two bucket seats or a three-seater bench design. The second row is one of the more comfortable in the pickup class thanks to four extra cabin length inches going right into this row's legroom. The floor is also flat, so the middle seat has the same amount of comfort as the window seats. Bed sizes offered are either 5'7" or 6'4" lengths with side compartment storage boxes built into both bed lengths, giving total storage an amazing 61.5 cubic-foot space.

How have the powertrains advanced?

Designed with efficiency and power in mind, the two powertrains of the RAM 1500 both offer great performance for your light-duty pickup. The first is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. Built to this engine is a wide-range variable valve timer and two-step variable valve lift, delivering optimal fuel economy while maintaining power output based upon the driver's demands. For larger jobs, the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine is bound to fit the job. 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque provides greater capabilities in payload, towing, and speed. This engine comes with cylinder deactivation that pauses the activity of four of the cylinders when the extra power isn't necessary. Variable camshaft timing maximizes fuel economy by reducing the engine's pumping work by delaying the intake valve and increasing combustion expansion. Both these engines come with an eight-speed automatic TorqueFlite transmission. Most revolutionary in the 2019 model, coming standard within the V-6 and optional within the V-8 is a eTorque semi hybrid system. This pumps up torque and fuel economy numbers thanks to its belt-drive motor generator and 48-volt battery pack, supplying an extra 90 lb-ft to the V-6 and up to an extra 130 lb-ft of torque to the V-8's capabilities! This maximizes potential payload and towing capacities to 2,300 pounds and 12,750 pounds respectively.

What new technology can I expect?

New technology has been built into practically every facet of the 1500. Across all trims of the 1500 you get standard push-button start, an electronic parking brake, redesigned rotary e-shifter dial, a fourth-generation Uconnect system, Bluetooth, five USB charging ports, and upwards of one-hundred standard and available safety and security systems. Within the cabin space, the center touchscreen draws attention with either 7", 8.4", or the FCA first 12" infotainment screen sizes. There's also four audio systems to choose from, providing some of the most powerful sound systems available ranging from the standard, to an Alpine audio system, to a class-exclusive premium Harman Kardon sound system with nineteen speakers and a ten-inch subwoofer. The latest and greatest of driver assist features accompany the 1500 as well, providing base blind spot monitoring and rear cross-path detection sensors and ascending through the autonomous systems for available adaptive cruise control, lane-sense departure warnings, collision detection, and even parallel and perpendicular park assist within higher trims.
