LEARN MORE: 2019 Ram 1500 Truck

 

The Powerhouse Pickup Truck Receives a Complete Makeover

Ram trucks are always in high demand with our customers, and the 2019 Ram 1500 is no exception to that rule. With a revamped exterior that's somehow longer, stronger, and lighter than ever, the all-new pickup is receiving rave reviews from the automotive press.

For instance, MotorTrend named the Ram 1500 its 2019 Truck of the Year, TRUCK TREND's jurors chose it as their pickup of the year, and it was named a Consumer Guide® Best Buy. Read on to learn more about this compelling Ram truck and all that it has to offer Jeffersontown KY drivers.

Performance

We went with this topic first, as we know that pickup drivers care most about how much their Ram 1500 can deliver when it comes to the power they need for the tough Mt. Washington KY jobs. From the job site to the field, the Ram 1500 delivers the strength that you need, when you need it. The standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine features a new eTorque mild hybrid system and makes 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. An available 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 gas engine produces 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque, while the available 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with that eTorque mild hybrid system hits those same performance numbers while also offering Shepherdsville KY owners a best-in-class V8 engine maximum tow rating of 12,750 pounds.


 
 
 

Design

The exterior clearly shows the truck's redesign, with a narrow grille that's framed by slimmer headlights. Each trim level gets its own unique grille design, making it easy to distinguish between them, and the front fascia leads directly to a longer, sculpted truck body. Your Ram 1500 can be purchased as either a Crew or Quad Cab, with 5'7" or 6'4" bed lengths, making it easy to find a model that's well-suited to your particular needs.

How Does the Ram 1500 Stack Up Against the competition?

More Powerful and Smarter, the New Ram 1500 Will Outwork the Truck Competition for Drivers Around Louisville

The unmatched capability of trucks is what draws in many of their drivers whether they use it for work or play, but there are a few truck options that are also as fun to drive and luxurious as any sedan or SUV. One such truck, the new Ram 1500, comes with an array of smart technology for towing, comfort, and entertainment while also having the capability and power to go toe-to-toe with any of its competitors at job sites or off-road. To show how the new Ram 1500 remains a truck that others look up to, use the tabs to the left to learn about how it compares with other trucks like the Chevrolet SilveradoFord F-150Toyota Tundra, and Nissan Titan.

The Ram 1500 vs. The Ford F-150

  • Ram trucks are known for the ease with which they can tow heavy trailers, and the Ram 1500's new eTorque system, which adds 130 pound-feet of torque to the already powerful engine, makes that even easier. The Ford F-150 doesn’t have a V8 that can match the power, towing capacity, or fuel efficiency of the RAM 1500's HEMI® V8 with eTorque.
  • Towing feels more effortless with the Ram 1500, and passengers will also find relaxing effortless as the Ram 1500's cabin is roomier and quieter while having features, like ventilated seats for each row, that the Ford F-150 doesn’t.
  • Drivers and passengers will also enjoy smart tech in the cabin, like a 12-inch touchscreen display, convenient features, like the RamBox Cargo Management System, and advanced safety aspects, like guided parking, that the Ford F-150 can’t match.

The Ram 1500 vs. The Toyota Tundra

  • If you have a lot of weight to tow or haul, the Ram 1500 is the clear choice between these two as it can tow much more, 12,750 pounds vs. 10,200 with the Toyota Tundra, and has a higher max payload, 2,300 pounds vs. 1,730 pounds in the Tundra.
  • Brawn or brains, the Ram 1500 comes out on top. It has features, like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, and trailer detection for the blind spot monitoring system, that drivers won’t be able to enjoy in the Tundra because it doesn’t offer them.
  • Ruggedness and refinement may not seem like qualities that mix well, but the Ram 1500 pulls it off with a bold design and interior materials that ooze style. The Tundra isn’t as rugged nor does it offer real-wood accents or as high-quality leather seats.

The Ram 1500 vs. The Nissan Titan

  • The Ram 1500 uses high-strength steel throughout its frame that not only helps you feel safe but also makes it capable of handling heavier trailers, up to 12,750 pounds. The Nissan Titan doesn’t use as much steel, which is part of why its towing capacity tops out below 10,000 pounds.
  • The Nissan Titan has blind spot monitoring, but, unlike the Ram 1500, it can’t detect the larger blind zones you have when a trailer is hitched on. The Titan also doesn't have other safety features, like auto high beams, that the Ram 1500 provides.
  • Passengers will find that the cabin of the Ram 1500 is easier to relax in than the cabins of the Titan thanks to features, like ventilated seats and dual-zone climate control, and smart in-floor storage options for a range of items that the Titan doesn’t offer.
