2019 RAM 1500 at Zeigler Chrysler Dodge RAM of Kalamazoo

The 225-lbs lighter-than-before 2019 Ram 1500 is an especially tech-savvy and worksite-capable pickup! It has items such as largest-in-class 14.9-inch brakes, a 4-corner air suspension system which self-levels, four-wheel disc ABS, and tuned Bilstein shocks. The RamBox Cargo Management System makes itself available again this year and buyers can opt for LED lighting inside it. If it's cold where you are, consider the thermal axle feature that can heat up the gear oil of 4x2-pickups before shifting into drive. There's also a recent 4x4 Off-road Package that fastens on elements like a 1-inch suspension lift, skid plates, and frame-mounted tow hooks. The "RAM" grille and logo get a tweak without leaving behind what has already been popular, and there are new exterior color offerings, like Patriot Blue, Diamond Black Crystal, Tri-coat White, and Billet Silver. The 18-inch Rebel model has as standard a coil spring suspension (air suspension is elective) and can be Quad Cab for 2019! That's not to mention its off-road-ready features, like broader bumpers and 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires. Let's go over all that the RAM 1500 has to offer in 2019!

Can you go over the power options for this pickup?

Certainly! The standard transmission is an electronic TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic (nicknamed eTorque). Buyers can opt for the non-electronic one as well. There is a 5.7L Hemi V-8 getting 395-horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque with the unassisted regular transmission. With the eTorque employed it will add 130 lb-ft more torque inside the lower range which ends up at 540 lb-ft torque total! The next engine to discuss is a Pentastar 3.6L V6 that produces 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. This V6 works with an eTorque mild-hybrid transmission that allies with a 48-volt motor as well as a battery pack in the cab. The 2019 RAM 1500, when properly furnished with the Max Tow Package, will tow 12,700-lbs and haul up to 2,300-lbs! A word on the transmissions: There are over 40 distinct shift maps working internally to assist drivers in the areas of augmented fuel saving, achievement, and connected driving feel. Standard on the Rebel, drivers will find an electronic locking rear differential as well as many other clever components that fully use the powertrain to the max!

What are some of the features to consider?

Reflect on conveniences like a central console with a laptop-ready bin, a shelf above the glovebox, plus, a toggle switch console for specific truckbed components. The standard size touchscreen stands at 8.4-inches, but there is also a workstation-favorite already with the option for 12-inch touchscreen too. This larger screen authorizes sort of a split-screen multi-ball functionality, especially good for those who like to watch two apps run concurrently. The body lengths are diverse for this pickup, comprising Quad Cabs with a long bed & a wheelbase of 140.5", a 144.5" wheelbase on Crew Cab short beds, and a 153.5" wheelbase on Crew Cab long beds. Drivers can select a flat-load floor with twin RamBins in it, a cool 43.4-inch panoramic sunroof, as well as the innovative RamBox Cargo Management System. That system has watertight, locking, LED-lit storage bins built into the truck-bed sides, and they don't take up any more space for cargo! There are fun features as well like a 10-inch subwoofer, an available 60/40 split tailgate that supports up to 2,000-lbs, and a staggering choice of 16 differing wheel designs. Note as well the option for a beige-exterior 3D-map & navigation system, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, and even SiriusXM with 360L.

Would you please outline the models specifically a bit more?

The model offerings consist of the Laramie, Bighorn, Limited, Rebel, Tradesman, and Laramie Longhorn. Starting with the Laramie, look at elements such as front Heavy-Duty shock absorbers, standard low-beam headlight DRLs & LED taillights, a 40/20/40 split bench seat, driver seat memory settings, and an optional power sunroof. The Laramie Longhorn has a southwestern theme permeating throughout, with an actual branded logo above the glove compartment, 100-percent full-grain leather seats, wood elements inside, standard chrome tow hooks/bumpers, and a new RV Match Walnut Brown paint choice! The Big Horn model (or Lone Star model in Texas) is standard with 18" x 8-inch wheels and brings availability for HD Radio, bucket seats, a power sunroof, and 9-speakers with a subwoofer. On to the Tradesman, built for those who use it as a work truck daily, and fittingly has elements such as an HD vinyl 40/20/40 split bench seat, a 12-volt auxiliary power outlet, 1-touch power front windows, and a 5.0-inch touchscreen display. The Limited model gets in the action easily with its upscale items, like the 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen, authentic wood & leather elements, multi-use USB ports, a blended wireless charging pad, and Frequency Response Damping (FRD) shocks. The 2019 Rebel is standard with a five-link coil spring suspension, tow hooks, Hill-descent Control, intensive skid plates, and a one-inch factory lift. The Rebel can also opt for the 4-Corner Air Suspension, depending on personal preference, which is a different configuration than the year prior.
