2019 Ram 1500 Review – 2019 MotorTrend Truck of the Year®


The 2019 Ram 1500 | Attractively Capable, Strikingly Luxurious

Built to handle the constantly demanding requirements of the working individual; the 2019 Ram 1500 is all new and all luxury. The 2019 Ram features 7 models including the Tradesman, Big Horn, Sport, Rebel, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited. This 4 door pickup seats up to 6, sports a brand new look both inside and out, and is decked with a seemingly never-ending list of additional features and options.

The 2019 Ram 1500 has been completely overhauled for maximum cabin comfort and luxury. Gone are the days where a truck simply got the job done. Premium models are bathed in upscale design and plush materials – this truck truly is an experience. Stepping inside you’ll find that the available heated and ventilated bucket front seats are stitched in a myriad of cloth and leather options and are 12-way power adjustable with 4-way lumbar support for relaxed comfort in any position. The sizeable roomy cabin is up to four inches larger than previous Ram models and delivers best in class rear legroom, with the ability to recline the available ventilated rear seats up to 8 degrees – a class exclusive. For an added touch of luxurious sophistication, you’ll find real wood accents with metal finishes line the inside of the premium models.  For a dose of sun and added ventilation, a large dual-pane sunroof is available. On the dash, a leather-wrapped steering wheel is an available feature, while the award-winning UConnect® system comes in 8.4-inch or 12-inch variations and utilizes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for seamless hands-free integration with your smartphone. 5 USB-C charging ports juice up your electronics at lightning speed, and an available charging pad provides further convenience without the use of cables. For storage space up front, a reconfigurable centre console provides room for file folders and ample space for other items on the go. Enjoy the new air conditioning system, which runs quieter and features available dual-zone automatic temperature control for everyone’s comfort. As beautiful as it is on the inside there is also plenty to like on the outside of the new 2019 Ram 1500. Remodelled and sleek LED headlights and taillights compliment a grille and bumper that are available in chrome finish. This truck features a sculpted hood design that dissipates airflow, a noise cancelling windshield that reduces sound through the ventilation and wipers, and tempered tires to create a softer and smoother ride with less road noise. Available in 12 colours with 14 different wheel options, this Ram looks commanding and attractive on either the 18-inch aluminum or 22-inch polished painted aluminum rims.

A truck is only as good as it’s towing capacity, and the 2019 Ram 1500 features 12,750 lb-ft of it. And with over 1,500 L of cargo bed volume, you’re not leaving anything behind. With two power plants available, Hemi lovers can choose the original legendary V8 which is now also available with an eTorque mild hybrid system, while the Pentastar V6 option has the same system and benefits from exceptional added launch torque. Four corner air suspension provides another Ram advantage, allowing the vehicle to automatically level loads and create a more comfortable, aerodynamic ride height for improved fuel efficiency and performance.

2019 Ram 1500 Engine:

  • 3.6L Pentastar™ V6 with eTorque: 305 Horsepower with 269 lb-ft of torque (Plus 90 lb-ft of additional launch torque with eTorque)
  • 5.7L Hemi® VVT V8: 395 Horsepower with 410 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.7L Hemi® VVT V8 with eTorque: 395 Horsepower with 410 lb-ft of torque (Plus 130 lb-ft of additional launch torque with eTorque)

If you’re looking for a truck with the best of both luxury and performance, the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is a no-brainer. Advanced safety features include an available blind spot detection system, notifying you when another vehicle enters the blind spot zone even while hauling a trailer, and cameras around the vehicle provide a 360-degree bird’s eye view to assist in almost any situation from parking to trailer loading.
