If you’ve liked at previous iterations of the Dodge RAM 1500, we are certain you’ll love everything about the Dodge RAM 2019 models; the updates have been subtle in some areas, major in other, but all for the better.

 
 
What’s New With the 2019 Exterior vs. the 2018 Exterior?

630 × 344
 
Looking at things from the outside, you can clearly see that Dodge worked hard to improve the aesthetics of the RAM 1500 2019 model, yet it is still so undeniably RAM. Dodge improved the lines of their 2019 RAM truck, which improves the airflow around the vehicle significantly over the 2018 version, and the improved aerodynamics mean a truck that moves with greater ease through the air and attains improved passive fuel economy. On top of the fuel economy benefits of the redesign, the Dodge RAM 1500 2019 model gains an overall sleeker appearance, but while retaining the classic RAM 1500 silhouette.
 
We already mentioned that some of the updates were subtle, but one of the most striking changes between the 2018 and the RAM 1500 2019 models, is the new grille. Dodge regulars will be quick to notice that the 2019 model no longer features the crosshair grille and that across the entire line up, the grille is now adorned with an aggressive and stylized ‘RAM’ logo.
On the not so obvious, but just as important end of the design scale, you may also notice that on the 2019 Dodge RAM, the ‘RAM 1500’ Logos, and ‘HEMI’ logos (when HEMI Motor equipped) have been moved from their old spot behind the front wheel arches, right up to the outer edges of the hood directly above the wheels. 
 
The updates to the exterior of the RAM 1500 2019 model don’t stop there; this year’s updates also include changes to the headlights – they are now mounted higher and have been made more slimline. This lends a far sportier aesthetic to the front of this truck, and the team here at Provincial Chrysler really do love it!
 
Around at the back of the RAM 1500 2019, the updates continue; one of the most highly praised features of the new model is most certainly the available, innovative 60:40 dual hinged tailgate. This impressive new feature is a dynamic addition to the new model that brings several new abilities, including the ability to open vertically and horizontally. This outwards opening capability allows for easier access if you’re loading with a forklift or other machinery, and also makes it easier to get in and out of the bed. The tailgate itself can support a load of up to 2000 lb too. 
 
The cargo bed is also wider in 2019 than it was in 2018’s model, with a huge capacity of up to 1521 litres!

 
 
What are the big changes in 2019’s interior vs. 2018’s?

630 × 420
 
Changes to the 2019 RAM truck weren’t just to the exterior, the 2019 RAM interior also got a serious makeover too. With critics like Car and Driver describing the newly designed cabins as “opulent”, you know it’s going to be an impressive show. Ergonomics are improved as a result of the refresh and this certainly goes a long way to improving even upon the already comfortable 2018 RAM 1500
 
Big is really the keyword when it comes to the 2019 RAM interior; the1500 went through something of a growth spurt since 2018’s model, and now you’ll find the cabin is even roomier! Dodge engineers had to think smart in order to increase interior space while still retaining the aerodynamic qualities they gained on the outside. Seats were mounted lower, which brought more headroom for all passengers, and a rethink of the interior layout brought increased legroom for the rear passengers, without sacrificing comfort and space upfront.
 
The Dodge RAM 1500 2019 model also benefits from new and improved storage vs. the outgoing 2018 model, and ask any prospective truck buyer what they’re looking for, and 5 will get you 10 you’ll hear, “plenty of storage space”. In the rear, the new model gets under-seat storage compartments and RAM bins which are flush mounted-storage areas in the floor. In the sides of the bed, there’s also the available RAMbox cargo management system; this consists of convenient storage areas mounted into the sidewalls of the bed, this saves space and improves the overall look at the same time.
 
Provincial Chrysler Windsor is most excited about the interior upgrades on the top two trim levels, the Laramie Longhorn, and the Limited. In 2018 these models were nice, but in 2019 they’re nicer! You’ll find new luxury amenities, including reclining rear seats – a rare find in a truck, and something more usually found in luxury sedans. Truck sales, particularly luxury trucks, are on the rise nationwide, and with features like these, it’s no surprise that the 2019 RAM truck is on the hunt for the competition!

 
 
What are the Differences in Performance Between the 2018 and 2019 RAM 1500?

600 × 400
 
All in all, the 2018 model and the Dodge RAM 1500 2019 model have the same line up of engines available, which include:
 
The 3.6 litre Pentastar V6 with;
o 305 horsepower
o 269 lb-ft of torque
o Estimated fuel economy of 10.8 litres per 100 km
 
The 5.7 litre HEMI V8 with;
o 395 horsepower
o 410 lb-ft of torque
o Estimated fuel economy of 13.6 litres per 100 km
 
One thing that has changed for 2019, and this is a big one, is the addition of the incredible eTorque system. eTorque actually turns the 2019 RAM truck into a mild hybrid; the system replaces the traditional alternator with an electric motor, a large battery pack and an 8 rib belt. The eTorque system increases launch torque by up to 90 lb-ft on the V6, or by up to 130 lb-ft on the V8 motor, and because it’s electric power, the torque is instant, giving you immediate pulling power. Once the regular engine reaches its optimum powerband, the eTorque shuts down. This electrical power assistance helps to improve fuel economy too. If you’re wondering where the electrical power for the in-car amenities comes from without an alternator, eTorque has that covered too by way of a DC converter.
 
Technology has also been leveraged to assist in fuel economy on the 2019 RAM 1500; behind the fascia of the all-new grille, you’ll find active shutters (they are called active, but it is a passive system in that it requires no input from the driver). The shutters activate at higher speeds to improve aerodynamics. Just below the grille, there is also an active front splitter, which, similarly to the shutters, deploys passively at speeds greater than 35 miles per hour in order to improve airflow around the truck, and therefore reduce air resistance.

 
 
What are the Differences in Available Tech Features Between the 2018 and 2019 RAM 1500?

If you keep up to date with the latest news, you might even be able to hazard a guess at what we’re going to highlight as the stand out tech upgrade between the 2018 RAM 1500, and the 2019 RAM 1500; and if you don’t keep up with this info, then you’re still bound to be impressed! Ladies and gentlemen, we introduce to you, the available 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen display! With its striking portrait display and impressive functionality, this is big news in the automotive tech world – it is (and by some margin, too) the largest display available in the half-ton truck class, and everyone in the team here at Provincial Chrysler Windsor has been blown away by its features, which include split display, giving you fine control, and maximizing the potential of the enormous display.

 
 
What are the Differences in Available Safety Features Between the 2018 and 2019 RAM 1500?
 
As time goes on, vehicles have consistently gotten smarter, more economical, more powerful, and most importantly safer. The 2019 Dodge RAM 1500 is no exception to this rule of thumb, and it makes available many new safety features that weren’t featured in the 2018 lineup. Dodge has introduced an excellent package of cutting edge safety features that set the 2019 model miles apart from any model that has come before it.

 
 
Newly added safety features include:
 
 
Blind Spot Monitoring
-- This available system uses advanced radar to scan blind spots on the truck – if another vehicle has entered the blind spot, the driver gets a visual alert, and if the turn signal is activated while another vehicle is present in the blind spot, an audible alert is also sounded.

 

600 × 400
 
Trailer Detection
-- This system allows you to manually select the degree to which it intervenes from one of three settings – Max, Trailer Length, or Auto. The system cleverly auto-detects the length of tow and factors that into the blind spot detection range.

 
Forward Collision Warning
-- This available system uses an advanced combination of radar sensors and cameras to scan the road ahead and alert the driver to possible collision hazards. This drivers aid is a potential lifesaver; first, it will give visual and audible alerts, if no action is taken, the vehicle will automatically apply the brakes to attempt to avoid the impact or reduce the severity.

600 × 400

 
360 Degree Surround View
-- This available system makes use of cameras strategically mounted around the truck to provide a full 360 view, and this is used to provide a bird’s eye view on your graphic user interface. It’s ideal to help you visualize what’s going on around the truck, especially during parking, or maneuvers in tight spots.

600 × 400

 
Adaptive Cruise Control
-- This available system is a semi-autonomous driver aid that utilizes radar to ‘lock on’ to the vehicle in front, and match its speed. The driver still controls the steering, but the ACC system takes care of throttle and brakes, all the way down to a slow crawl. It even works in stop and go traffic.

600 × 400
 
Rear Cross Path Detection
-- This available system uses the blind spot radar detectors to analyze for, and alert the driver if any cross-traffic threats are detected while you have reverse gear engaged.
 
Lane Departure Warning
-- This available system uses camera systems to check for the lane markings and keeps the truck centered within them. If a drift is detected (and the turn signal has not been activated), it will automatically course correct back into the lane.
