When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Ram 1500, this model is going to hit the market as a full-size pickup truck that will undergo some revolutionary changes and updates in terms of design. First of all, you will notice its larger dimensions. This Ram will be longer and wider. However, although being bigger than ever, the new Ram 1500 will at the same time be significantly lighter than its predecessor. The manufactures have used some lightweight materials such as aluminum in its chassis construction and you can only imagine how much such reduced weight will contribute to its already powerful off-road performance. Besides performance and its off-road features, the new Ram 1500 will drastically improve its maneuvering, stability and efficiency. Its aerodynamics will also be enhanced and its towing capacity largely increased. The new Ram 1500 will keep that familiar rugged and aggressive appearance, but it will also get a touch of luxury. You will notice its sculpted hood, distinctive grille with active grille shutters and sleeker LED headlights. It will stand on 22-inch aluminum wheels, but this will depend on the trim level you choose.
The interior of the 2019 Ram 1500 will probably be more luxurious than one would ever expect from a pickup truck like this. Due to its larger dimensions, this truck will provide a spacious and comfortable cabin, covered in premium materials. Besides materials, the carmaker will also make some serious upgrades in terms of technology. A driver will get a 7.0-inch full-color information display in the instrument cluster and a 12.0-inch touch-screen display in the center console with the latest Uconnect system. It means that you should expect features such as navigation, satellite radio, USB ports, audio system, wireless charging, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Safety systems and driver assist features will be improved as well and some of them include adaptive cruise control, six airbags, 360-degree camera, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning and park assist.
As we have already mentioned in the intro, the 2019 Ram 1500 will use an innovative mild-hybrid system under its hood that combines a gas engine with generator and a 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack. When it comes to gas engine, two options will be available. The first one includes a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque.
