It’s precisely because of this versatility that the 2019 Ram 1500 was chosen as the best truck out there by two of the most respected sources in the industry. The new Ram 1500 meets the needs of the 2019 truck driver better than any other truck, thanks to its variety, comfort, convenience, and value.
Canadians ask more out of trucks than they do of any other vehicle segment on the market. On any given day, a truck driver might need their truck to commute to work like a car, haul a bed of rocks on a job site, tow an RV to a camp site, drive through muddy farmland, or conquer off-road terrain. It’s no wonder that it’s the strongest-selling segment in Edmonton.
A number of clever alterations have made the 2019 Ram 1500 the most aerodynamic version yet. Start with the active air dam, which automatically activates at high speeds to make it more aerodynamic on highways. Another class-exclusive feature further reduces drag on the highway by lowering the vehicle half an inch while driving. Plus, its all-new frame is composed almost entirely of high-strength steel (98%). The result: more durability, less weight, added rigidity, and better handling.
This is also the most efficient Ram ever. Full-stop. In addition to class-leading fuel economy ratings, the available eTorque mild hybrid system adds up to 130 lb-ft of launch torque, and its class-exclusive multilink coil spring rear suspension reduces friction and wear. Our favourite feature, though, is the 4-Corner Air Suspension. It automatically levels loads and improves capability and comfort.
The new edition is lighter, longer, and can tow and haul more than any Ram on the market. With a 12,750 lb. tow capacity and 2300 lb. payload, the Ram 1500 is capable of pretty much anything you can throw at it. It has a wider bed this year, and a new bed step makes loading and unloading incredibly easy.
The 2019 Ram 1500 is perfect for hauling around your family and your buddies, so you’re going to want to keep them safe. That’s why the truck is jam-packed with tech features to do just that. In addition to Blind-Spot detection, you’ll get Trailer Detection, which will add your trailer to its radar and account for its size.
Forward Collision Warning gives you audible and visual warnings and will auto brake if you don't take action. A 360-degree surround view gives you a full picture of your surroundings, and you also get adaptive cruise, parallel park assist, and rear park assist.
