The 2019 Ram 1500 Successfully Challenges its Rivals with Proven Capability

Read on to hear about the many impressive aspects of Alabama's favorite truck, and come visit our Fort Payne Ram dealership to grace the driver's seat yourself. Drivers from Gadsden to Chattanooga and beyond already love it, and we think you will too.

What's New for 2019?

The 2019 Ram 1500 has an enormous amount of new features, functions, and styling to show off for the new model year - too much to write in just this section! From dropping the crosshair grille altogether on all models, to revolutionary design and technological updates inside and out, to the new hybridization of the engine, the 2019 Ram 1500 is positively packed with new aspects to be excited about. Read more about these changes in the sections below.

Interior and Exterior Styling

The very first thing you may notice about the 219 Ram 1500's style is that there's no longer the crosshair-style grille up front; don't let this change in style sway you for the worse, as the Ram 1500 is easily more aggressive than ever before. The chassis is even lighter and stronger this time around thanks to the use of high-strength steel and other altered aspects throughout the truck. Active grille shutters and a front splitter help reduce drag, and the bedsides have been raised by 1.5 inches and include a small lip spoiler on the tailgate to help increase aerodynamics even further.

Climb inside the cabin of the 2019 Ram 1500 and find that it's even more inviting thanks to a more spacious rear seating area in the Crew Cab models, and top-level trims come with available heated and cooled seats as well as reclining seatbacks to increase your comfort on the go. Add on the available panoramic sunroof and you'll never want the ride to end.


Safety and Convenience Technology

More than just good looks and comfort, the Ram 1500 knows how to provide a good time as you cruise through Gadsden and beyond. You'll find a standard Uconnect 3 infotainment system on a 5-inch touchscreen but, if you go with one of the higher trim levels, you'll find a massive 12-inch Uconnect 4 touchscreen infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. To help keep all of your smart devices and other electronics fully charged, you can have up to five USB ports throughout the cabin as well.

Safety is no exception in this pickup truck, and Fort Payne, AL drivers will be happy to learn that there's plenty to keep you out of harm's way in the 2019 Ram 1500. High-quality LED headlights and taillights are available on most trim levels to keep the road ahead illuminated, and there's a multitude of active safety technologies at play to ensure you stay on the straight and narrow. With available safety features like blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist, a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and more, you'll have eyes in all directions while you keep your own on the road ahead. When fully equipped, you can rest easy knowing the 2019 Ram 1500 has your safety in mind every time.

Performance and Capability

Under the hood of the 2019 Ram 1500, Albertville drivers will be delighted to find either a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine kicking out 305 horsepower or an available 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine hitting an even more impressive 395 horsepower. The new thing to be excited about, however, is the hybridization of these engines with the eTorque system, standard on the former engine and optional on the latter. This system replaces the alternator with a motor and generator unit that can provide more energy to the 48-volt lithium-ion battery pack. What this means for you is that you'll enjoy smoother engine starting and a quick boost of torque when you need it - a 90 lb-ft boost on the V6 engines and a 130 lb-ft boost for the V8 engines. Add on the ability for the 2019 Ram 1500 to tow up to 12,750 lbs. and haul a payload of up to 2,320 lbs. (when properly equipped), and you'll be shrugging off even the toughest Chattanooga jobs without breaking a sweat.
