Release date for the 2019 Ram 1500
For the last several years, Ram pickup trucks have been among the most well-regarded models in a highly competitive class of the automotive industry. Engineers and designers working to meet the deadline for the release date for the 2019 Ram 1500 have radically overhauled the full-size pickup truck. When the 2019 Ram 1500 arrives in the Billion Auto Group showroom, it will be more than 220 pounds lighter than the previous model and the truck’s frame is comprised of 98 percent high-strength steel. The change in the metal alloy used to build the foundation of the 2019 Ram will improve handling as well as durability.

“The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 delivers a no-compromise approach to the full-size truck segment with strength, durability, technology and efficiency,” Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand said in a press release. “The Ram 1500 offers truck buyers 12,750 pounds of towing capability, a stunning Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen display and active systems that improve fuel efficiency and assist drivers. The Ram 1500 stands out as the benchmark in a very competitive segment.”
Improved Fuel Efficiency
One of the most impressive upgrades made to the 2019 Ram 1500 is in the new truck’s vastly improved fuel economy scores. The automaker has added its eTorque mild hybrid system on the truck’s 3.6-liter, V-6 as well as the legendary 5.7-liter, HEMI® V-8 engines. No other truck manufacturer has as many powertrains using mild hybrid technology. In addition to giving short boosts in torque output, the eTorque system also allows the engines to have start/stop functionality to prevent fuel from being consumed unnecessarily.

Just because a vehicle is rugged and has a high towing capacity, doesn’t mean it can’t also be on the cutting-edge of technology. The 2019 Ram 1500 is available with the latest version of the Ram Uconnect infotainment system. Depending on trim, the system will be controlled by either an 8.4- or 12-inch touchscreen. Additionally, future owners who use Android- and Apple-based smartphones will be able to use most of their favorite apps while they’re on the road with the truck’s built-in device integration capability. Finally, Ram engineers have included new multifunction USB ports and have made an optional wireless charging pad available.
