A Review of the 2019 Ram 1500 Pickup Truck

Hello to all! Welcome back to the Provincial Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Blog; we are proud to be the premier destination for FCA vehicles, serving the areas of Windsor ON, Tecumseh ON, Leamington ON, LaSalle ON, Amherstburg ON, and the rest of the Southwestern Ontario area. Not only do we have an incredible selection of vehicles in stock, but we are also blessed with some of the best team members in the business, providing the best customer service you’ll find anywhere in the auto industry!


Although this is a truck that really needs no introduction, we are still going to introduce to the latest version, the phenomenal 2019 RAM 1500. For the new model year there have been some big changes, but what hasn’t changed is the sheer power, the supreme dependability, and the aggressive road presence; and these factors all combine to create an instantly recognizable truck that will serve you well for years to come.


Exterior
The 2019 RAM 1500 is definitely an iconic truck, and RAM’s engineers have done well to keep the new model in line with the traditional RAM visage, while at the same time packing in the features; for example, the all new available Multifunction Tailgate. The Multifunction Tailgate is a revolutionary way of looking at the traditional tailgate; it features a 60:40 split, allowing the gate to swing open ‘barn door’ style up to 88° - this allows for easier loading of large and bulky items, easier stepping in and out, easier bed rinse out, and allows for a greater range of industrial uses, for example, with this system, it’s now far easier to load heavy items by way of forklift. The tailgate itself has retained strength as well as gaining function, when folded down flat in the traditional way, it can support up to 2000lb.

 

If you’re looking for extra features to make getting in and out of the bed easier, in addition to the Multifunction Tailgate, you can also opt for the available kick out bed step, which deploys easily for a secure foothold.

Forget adding a bulky cargo box to your bed, these take up valuable space and can spoil the look of your truck; instead, go for the available, class exclusive Rambox Cargo Management system. Rambox adds weatherproof cargo bins in to the side walls of the bed, these bins can be locked, as well as washed out as they feature drain ports; and the real wow factors are the 115 volt, 400 watt outlets they contain – perfect for charging batteries for your cordless tools, or powering corded ones.

The exterior design of the 2019 RAM 1500 is also contributing to the excellent fuel economy. The sculpted lines not only look great, but they’re actually directing air around the truck in a very specific way to maximize the aerodynamic properties; and the features aren’t all passive – high tech additions like active grill shutters and the class exclusive active air dam activate automatically at high speeds to significantly lower the RAM 1500’s drag coefficient to the lowest in its class.

 

While we think the RAM 1500 is more than a pretty face, it certainly helps! It features a ton of exterior deign options this year, including a selection of 16 different wheel designs, including some very impressive 22 inch aluminum rims!

Interior
The 2019 RAM 1500 offers the largest, and most advanced touch screen infotainment display in its class as an available feature, which shouldn’t come as a surprise given the overall impressiveness of this truck! This display is powered by the all new 4th generation Uconnect system; it enables a split screen view, and is extremely intuitive, with features like pinch to zoom making it feel more like a tablet or smart phone than a traditional in car entertainment system.

 

Opt for the available premium digital cluster display to get the clearest view of critical driver information. This is a 7 inch screen, presented in full color to bring to life this information, using high definition 3D graphics.

Keeping the interior quiet on pickup trucks has been a headache for designers for decades; something so big and boxy is always going to create wind noise, but RAM’s engineers have found the perfect solution – Active Noise Cancellation. Just like you’d find on premium headphones, the RAM 1500 features Active Noise Cancellation technology; mounted within the frame, active tuned mass modules work together with the available interior active noise cancellation system. This results in the best in class interior quietness, bringing ambient noise levels down to just 57.6 decibels adjusted.

 

RAM know that staying connected in today’s day and age is vital, and that’s why you’ll find standard features like ultra fast USB charging ports, keeping you powered no matter where you go. 

For music lovers, RAM have made available on the 2019 RAM 1500 an incredible 900 watt, premium Harman Kardon audio system, which continues the trend of leading the class in that it is the most powerful available on a half ton truck. It features 19 high fidelity speakers, again the most in its class, and on limited trimmed models can be equipped with beautiful stainless steel speaker grilles.

Performance
You’ll find that power and performance are not in shortage with the 2019 RAM 1500; this year’s model is the strongest and most capable RAM half ton ever produced. Featuring best in class V8 towing at an astonishing 12750 pounds, and a huge payload capacity of 2300 pounds, the RAM 1500 is built to work as hard as you do. The available, class exclusive active level four corner air suspension features automatic load leveling for unparalleled towing and hauling confidence.

 

The 2019 RAM 1500 is equipped as standard with the venerable 3.6 liter Pentastar V6, but of course the RAM 1500 can be equipped with the legendary V8 HEMI engine, and for this year it features the awesome new eTorque mild hybrid system that actually replaces the traditional alternator with a 48 volt battery powered, belt driven motor generator – this adds up to improved overall performance, better fuel efficiency, increased towing abilities, and superior driving dynamics.
