, Auburn Hills, Mich.

The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 becomes a benchmark for durability, technology, potency and preference with facilities never before charity in a pickup.
 
Overall weight for a Ram 1500 has been reduced by 225 pounds. As a truck’s backbone, a support uses modernized materials and engineering to discharge 100 pounds while augmenting rigidity and continuance for 12,750 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload.
 
An all-new eTorque complement delivers softened fuel potency in both V-6 and V-8 configurations.
 
As a shred disrupter, a new Uconnect 4C with a vast 12-inch touchscreen leads a pickup universe with record featuring split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views and disdainful calm from SiriusXM with 360L.
 
Active reserve and certainty systems join a record assault with adaptive journey control, brazen collision warning, Blind-spot Monitoring and prepared warning braking.
 
“The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 delivers a no-compromise proceed to a full-size lorry shred with strength, durability, record and efficiency,” pronounced Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand. “The Ram 1500 offers lorry buyers leading-edge creation with 225 pounds of weight reduction, 12,750 pounds of towing capability, a overwhelming Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen arrangement and active systems that urge fuel potency and support drivers. The Ram 1500 stands out as a benchmark in a really rival segment.”
 
Engineering
The new Ram 1500 uses a longest, lightest and many fit support in a half-ton lorry segment. The framework has reduced weight by 120 pounds – 100 pounds from a support alone delivering a limit load of 2,300 pounds and limit trailer pull ability of 12,750 pounds. The strongest Ram 1500 support ever constructed includes a same impact countermeasures opposite all configurations, and is done from 98 percent high-strength steel. Exclusive front splayed support rail record (patent pending) creates a rarely fit appetite interesting structure for all impact modes, including front-offset with support formation brazen of front tire. Also, frame-mounted high-strength steel tire blockers are placed behind a front tires to force wheels external in a eventuality of impact. Additionally, side rails are taller and entirely boxed. To serve urge NVH, new electronically tranquil side-frame-mounted active tuned-mass modules (ATMM) work in peace with an interior active sound termination (ANC) complement on 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 versed models to revoke ambient sounds down to a low 67.1 db – a quietest Ram 1500 ever. Rear cranky members are double perfect welded to a inside and external of a support for softened continuance and hurl stiffness.
 
Helping to emanate a many atmospheric cab in a segment, 3 new, longer support lengths are offered: a 144.5-inch wheelbase on Crew Cab brief beds and a 153.5-inch wheelbase on Crew Cab prolonged beds – both 4 inches longer than their predecessors. The Quad Cab prolonged bed has a wheelbase of 140.5 inches. Ram’s newest pickup offers a branch radius of usually 46.2 feet, quell to curb.
 
New eccentric front cessation components mix lightweight mixed tip control arms, aluminum revoke control arms and retuned geometry for softened responsiveness and handling. The front stabilizer bar is relocated behind a front tires, serve improving hurl rigidity by 20 percent. A new front coil-over startle settlement is customary apparatus on all Ram 1500s regardless of configuration.
 
The third generation, disdainful behind five-link curl cessation settlement provides softened accent over obstacles than a root open system, and a new on-going curl springs are some-more than adult to a assign of doing a load of 2,300 pounds and towing capability of 12,750 pounds.
 
Frequency Response Damping (FRD) shocks
Frequency Response Damping (FRD) record has found a proceed into a 2019 Ram 1500 shocks on all 4 corners. When a Ram 1500 practice a slower input, common during cornering and complicated braking, a bypass valve is sealed for some-more assertive damping, that provides additional fortitude and poise. When pushing routinely or unprotected to faster startle inputs – that is common on serious roads or during aloft speeds – a valve will open to alleviate a damping, giving a motorist some-more comfort, certainty and control.
 
Tailgate
The new aluminum tailgate not usually facilities damping during opening, it also integrates a lift support measure. Unlike many competitors, Ram uses a nitrogen- and oil-charged strut, that gives unchanging support in even a coldest or warmest climates and unchanging support by a whole tailgate swing. The latch-and-lock resource is now electronic, shortening a volume of relocating tools and permitting owners to dump a tailgate with a interior switch, remotely with a pivotal fob or unlock/open with pacifist entry. Customers with arms full will conclude a ability to simply entrance a bed on approach.
 
Lightweight materials
Reducing a weight of components on a new Ram 1500 improves fuel economy and allows for some-more calm while lifting load and towing capability. By controlling effective high-strength steels, composites and aluminum, a 2019 Ram 1500 has forsaken scarcely 120 pounds from a framework (100 pounds from support alone) and scarcely 225 pounds altogether when compared to a prior generation. Additional weight reductions change out sum calm to yield new comfort and fuel-saving content.
 
The all-new Ram 1500 also takes advantage of lightweight aluminum for resourceful components, not usually where probable though where practical. Although a Ram 1500 hood and name framework components pioneered aluminum in 2009, a following framework elements on a Ram 1500 done a important rebate in weight by relocating to aluminum in a all-new model:

  • Tailgate
  • Engine mounts
  • Front spindle core section
  • Front cessation crossmember
  • Transmission crossmember
  • Steering complement gear

Lightweighting also involves substituting composites for steel – that offer high-tensile strength during really low weight while improving durability. The tip front cessation control arms (integrated with a steel structure), and a atmosphere dam structure are done from, or sum with, mixed materials. The weight reductions concede for some-more convenience, comfort and party facilities though also innovative fuel-saving technology, such as thermal management, eTorque and active aerodynamics.

Aerodynamics
Further demonstrating potency by engineering, endless wind-tunnel contrast honed a 2019 Ram 1500 extraneous shape, ensuing in continued, class-leading aerodynamics. Also, a amiable focus of active aerodynamics and complicated styling led to a 9 percent aerodynamic alleviation on a new truck. The 2019 Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4×2 fellow of drag is .357.

As a 2019 Ram 1500 approaches 35 miles per hour (mph), a customary active front atmosphere dam automatically extends downward 2.5 inches (non-air cessation and Rebel trucks). The discretionary atmosphere cessation complement lowers a lorry 0.6 inches improving altogether aerodynamics and efficiency. The new Ram 1500 also employs an active grille shiver system, that automatically closes a airflow by a outrageous grille when cooling is slightest needed.
 
The physique of a new Ram 1500 is a product of settlement and engineering team-work during a best. The new Ram 1500’s towering hood softened leads atmosphere divided from a wiper area – improving altogether aerodynamics and shortening breeze noise. A new venturi roof settlement leads atmosphere behind to a behind spoiler – creation it a many effective pickup roof diagnosis to date.
 
Significant time was dedicated to conceptualizing a lorry bed itself to boost usability and aerodynamics. Bed rails are carried by 1.5 inches to revoke drag as does a new spoiler on a new aluminum tailgate. The bed-to-cab execution is sub-flush to revoke reeling alongside a body. A wheel-to-wheel tubular side-step settlement offers aerodynamic improvements by permitting atmosphere to pass around a lorry some-more smoothly. A segment-exclusive lockable tri-fold tonneau cover serves a twin purpose by improving fuel economy by 0.8 percent and adding certainty and continue insurance for bed storage.
 
Air suspension
The segment’s best float and doing gets even softened with a serve of FRD shocks with atmosphere suspension. The 2019 Ram 1500 is a usually full-size pickup accessible with a four-corner atmosphere cessation complement for optimal float and aerodynamic performance. Another advantage of a new atmosphere cessation is a load-leveling capability, that automatically detects bucket on a cessation from a trailer or payload. The gas vigour increases until a car reaches normal float height, leveling a lorry and improving a installed ride. Additionally, a apart symbol on a pivotal fob gives a user a ability to manually revoke a truck, permitting for palliate of newcomer entrance and bed loading.
 
Off-road
Ram now adds a strong 4×4 Off-road Package for a Ram 1500 on scarcely any trim. The charity includes a one-inch cessation lift, with or but a accessible four-corner atmosphere suspension. An electronic-locking behind differential and 32-inch on/off-road tires on 18- or accessible 20-inch wheels yield additional grip. Hill-descent Control, an off-road-biased behind cessation geometry (Rebel and 4×4 Off-road Package) and singular off-road-calibrated shocks accelerate route capability. The package also includes strong transformation picture insurance (transfer case, steering, engine and gas tank) and pull hooks. Rear-fender decals imply trucks versed with a 4×4 Off-road Package.
 
Also new for 2019, a Ram 1500 Rebel is even some-more capable, now accessible in Quad Cab configurations and featuring new 18-inch wheels with 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires driven by an electronic-locking behind differential. The Rebel prototype came customary with Ram’s Active-level four-corner atmosphere cessation and a one-inch cessation lift. While atmosphere cessation is still available, a new Rebel comes customary with curl open cessation and a one-inch bureau lift. Newly designed Bilstein shocks underline remote reservoirs to keep a shocks cold and work with singular behind cessation geometry (Rebel and 4×4 Off-road Package) to keep a tires in traction. Rebel also includes Hill-descent Control for some-more off-road prowess. Hefty pull hooks underline far-reaching buffer openings to palliate use and a underbody insurance facilities transformation plates on a send case, steering system, oil vessel and gas tank.
 
Brake system
With 18 percent some-more pad area, a 2019 Ram 1500 facilities a largest front stop rotors in shred during 14.9-inches. A new electric parking stop eliminates 20 pounds from a prior complement and works jointly with a lorry to code involuntary rendezvous events.

Electric appetite steering
The subsequent era complement reduces weight by 6 pounds and is tuned for lighter and quicker steering. By controlling an electric engine to appetite a truck’s rack-and-pinion steering system, a engine is relieved from a assign of constantly branch a hydraulic pump, improving fuel potency adult to 1.8 percent and adding 5 horsepower.

Powertrain
The serve of a eTorque amiable hybrid complement is one of several changes done to a powertrains for a 2019 Ram 1500. The goal: Improve performance, fuel economy, payload, towing capabilities and drivability. Other changes embody upgraded TorqueFlite eight-speed involuntary transmissions, vital weight reductions and innovations, such as fast heating lubricants to revoke viscosity-related potency losses.
 
The eTorque amiable hybrid complement replaces a normal alternator on a engine with a belt-driven engine generator territory that performs several functions. The engine generator territory works with a 48-volt battery container to capacitate discerning and seamless start/stop function, short-duration torque serve to a engine crankshaft in certain pushing situations and stop appetite regeneration, that improves responsiveness and efficiency.
 
With a engine running, eTorque’s engine generator territory feeds 48-volt stream to a 300 watt-hour lithium-ion Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC)-Graphite battery. The small-suitcase-sized, air-cooled battery container mounts to a behind wall inside a Ram 1500’s cabin.
 
In serve to spinning a engine for restarts, a eTorque territory also recaptures appetite during deceleration and braking to feed assign to a battery pack.
 
3.6-liter Pentastar V-6: 305 horsepower and glorious fuel economy
The upgraded eTorque chronicle of a Pentastar V-6 is a customary engine in many trim levels of a 2019 Ram 1500, privately tuned for lorry avocation and rated during 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque.
