What’s Under the Hood?

I know what you’re thinking, that all sounds great. The 2019 Ram 1500 is all-new and provides a lot of comfort for anyone inside, but what’s under the hood? What is the powertrain like?

The answer is the highly respected 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that is used in many vehicles, due to being just an incredible piece of modern technology. Capable of towing of 12,750 pounds, there’s no storage of power and remarkable towing performance. With 305 horsepower and 269-lb-ft of torque, drivers can haul what they need and get their job done with ease.

The other engine available is the superb 5.7-liter V8 HEMI that delivers 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. Also built with an eTorque system, this engine provides an additional 120 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are designed with variable valve timing (VVT) technology to optimize overall engine performance and greater fuel economy. A TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission is also paired to both engines as well.

Features Not to Be Overlooked

Not only was the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 redesigned and entirely upgraded, the pick ups safety has never been more sophisticated to keep drivers and passengers alike safe. Available options include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, along with blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control. A bird’s-eye camera system and Sirius XM’s new 360L service, which enables individual streaming for subscribers, round out some of the new features.

One improvement with the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 are the speakers that now are re-positioned to improve overall sound quality. The new truck is also available with a powerful and crisp 19-speaker, 900-watt Harman Kardon audio system.

Overall, the changes made weren’t just unique features, they’re game-changing. The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 includes improvements that were made on the available RamBox Cargo Management system, which now provides even more secure storage and utility than ever before.

Lighter, But Stronger Than Before
