2019 Dodge Ram 1500 Review

The redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 is super lean. It has improved fuel economy and more room for passengers. It's almost 250 pounds lighter than last year's model, without sacrificing any quality or strength.

Even though it's lighter, it is not a smaller vehicle. Weight has been shaved by using super high tech composite materials like high-strength steel and aluminum alloys. The cab length has been increased by over four inches.

There are two options on the powertrain in the 2019 Ram 1500. There is a V6 and a Hemi V8. The Ram 1500 has a mild hybrid system, which contains a large 48-volt battery pack to ramp up the start and stop functionality.

The Ram 1500 also has "regenerative" braking, which shunts power from the brake system back into the electrical system to recharge the batteries.

Typical Example

  • 2019 Ram 1500 crew cab Laramie 4WD
  • 5.7-liter V8 engine, 8-speed automatic transmission
  • Base price: $33,300

The Ram truck series is also perfect for the environment in upstate New York. It gets cold in Rochester, and you're going to need a 4x4 for the icy winters.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency's tests on the Ram 1500, with the 5.7-liter engine you should expect about 17 miles per gallon in an unloaded truck.

Ram 1500 Reliability

Ram’s reliability is one of the main reasons buyers mention when they sign for a Ram. These are real trucks and the Ram 1500 is a bulletproof workhorse that never quits.

Properly equipped, with a modified bed and latching systems, the new Ram can tow up to 12,750 pounds. That puts it in line with most modern mid-sized trucks. The styling, superior handle, and control sets this truck apart from its peers.

Plus, Dodge Ram 1500 reviews consistently rate the Ram as one of the most reliable trucks on the road today. This truck is so reliable, you're likely never to use the warranty for anything more than the free oil changes!

Driving the Ram 1500

It is a truck or a mid-sized sports car?
