What's New for Drivers in Defiance in the 2019 RAM 1500?

The entry-level Tradesman and Big Horn trims are back in our neighborhood to tow the line on the tough jobs, as are luxury options from Laramie and Laramie Longhorn to Limited. There's even an updated Rebel trim available for the off-road crowd.

But from tires and wheel wells to cab, bed, and mechanicals, the new RAM 1500 is new from the ground up, with nearly everything about the latest in a long line of one of America's longest-lasting pickups fresh off the cutting-room floor and factory line alike. Best of all, the full-size light-duty flagship is already making a lasting impression as a standout among new cars, trucks, and SUV's here in Defiance. Check it out, right here!

For one, its ultra-rigid frame is made up of 98% high-strength steel, ruggedly durable housing for a choice of two engines. One, a 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6, got upgraded for capability for the model year, now putting out 269 pound-feet of torque. The other, a 395-horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI® V8, dishes out a workhorse 410 pound-feet. Paired with the TorqueFlite® eight-speed automatic transmission, standard across the line, the result is a best-in-class tow rating up to 12,750 pounds, not to mention max payload support up to 2,300 pounds also owing to a huge 61.5-cubic-foot max bed volume.

There's also something for the high-efficiency crowd, too: an available eTorque mild hybrid system. It features a 48-volt battery-powered, belt-driven motor generator, which replaces the alternator, resulting in enhancements of everything from performance and fuel economy to weight-shouldering ability and driving feel. That's not to mention the return of the optional RamBox® Cargo Management System, a class-exclusive organizational feature that makes the pickup expertly customizable for tools and outboard equipment.

Of course, 2019 RAM 1500 is also home to an interior well-equipped for a mobile office. Ditto for safety and driver-assist options in abundance. Eager to discover all it has to offer?
