Updated Interior 

The 2019 Ram 1500 boasts an updated interior making your life easier by serving multiple purposes. The new Ram cabins feature a state-of-the-art configurable center console capable of functioning as an office while providing ample room for your phone and drinks. The sleek and spacious design creates a feeling of luxury without compromising practicality and durability. Ram also offers the latest technology with its Uconnect infotainment system which comes in three different versions, providing buyers with a choice of an 8.4 or 12.0-inch touchscreen.

Whether you decide to purchase the less expensive Tradesman or the pricier luxury Limited model, you’ll be satisfied with a carefully-designed Ram 1500 interior that is both stylish and functional. The crew cab has been extended four inches to increase rear legroom, and the new seat structure sits a 0.8-inch lower for sufficient Stetson clearance. Other features include larger RamBins hidden under the rear floor mats and reclining rear seats in higher trim levels. These and other interior upgrades are what help set the 2019 Ram 1500 apart from the competition.

 

Aerodynamic Exterior 

The Ram 1500 features a smart, aerodynamic exterior design that utilizes an all-new high-strength steel platform that is four inches longer and 17 percent lighter than the previous chassis. The result is a weight decrease of over 200 pounds as well as improved performance, efficiency, and capability. Other aero-friendly design features include a venturi roof with sides that are 1.5 inches taller, resulting in smoother airflow over the bed and a reduced parachute effect. The grille shutters have been redesigned to be more efficient and stay closed in cold weather in order to heat the engine faster. In addition to improved performance, the new Ram is visually sleeker thanks to the nearly all-steel body in which only the hood and tailgate are made out of aluminum.

These design changes have been carefully implemented to give the new Ram both visual appeal and superior handling. Thanks to a few well thought out design tweaks to the suspension system, the Ram 1500 has a smoother ride than ever, making driving a truly enjoyable experience.

 

Top-rated Safety Features 

Safety is an important aspect of any vehicle, and the new Ram achieved top scores in six crash tests performed by the IIHS. The new chassis is built for safety and uses high-strength steel and octagonal front-frame rail extensions specifically designed to protect occupants in small-overlap front crashes. Forward and reverse collision control systems are also available, in addition to other accident-avoidance features such as lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, 360-degree camera systems, and blind-spot monitors.

The 2019 Ram 1500 is a sleek, efficient, well-designed truck that offers great versatility. This economical vehicle offers superior value with many different models to choose from. Whether you are looking for a basic model or something with a little more luxury, you will find one that suits your needs and budget.
