It’s for nothing that the RAM has been tagged as a disruptor and it has been doing just that with the pickup segment and now it seems with the imminent launch of 2019 Dodge RAM 1500, it would continue to do so. Dodge RAM is one of those cars that have never been able to resist experimenting and thinking out of the box; they co-opted sheet metal into the 1994 Dodge RAM and it was a success. We do hope for some radical changes or at least a partial makeover with this iteration. So let’s start cracking up the hood and see what makes the new model tick, shall we?
2019 Dodge RAM 1500 Overview:
The pickup segment is one of the most competitive but that does not seem to matter much as far as the 2019 Dodge RAM 1500 is concerned. If the rumours are true, then it seems that the new model would soon be sporting, an enhanced and stronger platform than its last iteration.
With most of the details still being kept under wraps, we had to rely on leaked images, rumours and vet the lot before developing the review. It seems that to all intents and purposes, the new model may not feature a radical makeover but the resulting changes should definitely add to its performance.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Dodge RAM 1500 comes with the same sheet metal covering as the last model but with sharper and more aerodynamic corners. Since it is a full-size truck, it is also supposed to contain rear wheel drive or four-wheel drive options and it offers both.
You can choose the one you want, depending on the trim that you selected. It also features two cab styles and two-bed options as well. So you can pick the one that you need for your truck.
At the end of the day, the pickup must be multi-functional and it does this with ease. It comes with a standard wheelbase model that you may have seen with the earlier model as well a larger wheelbase with other trims.
Currently, the new model offers 6 trim levels, along with off the road trim which is just perfect especially if you are the sort who loves adventure. It also comes with a tweaked grille as well as contoured LED headlights.
The 2019 Dodge RAM 1500 comes with a bevvy of features for the spacious interior; the cab comes with an FCA’s Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4 or 12-inch touch screen infotainment panel, depending on the trim that you select. It also comes with a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility along with power steering,
LED headlights along with a 360-degree camera, and a wireless charging pad and tons of safety features starting with the driver assist parking feature as well as a RAM box in bed storage system. The whole look is remarkable and with its new look, the car certainly manages to attract the right kind of attention
