2019 Ram 1500 Review

There’s plenty of work to be done in the Chicago, Skokie, and Park Ridge areas, so you need to make sure you have the right pickup truck for the job. This class of car may not be as popular as crossovers or sedans, but nothing can get the job done like a trusty pickup. Still, there are quite a few to choose from, though one manages to stand out among the rest.

The new 2019 Ram 1500 is a stunning example of everything a pickup can be. This powerful truck not only has all the capability and performance you could want but is packed full of some of the latest technology available. Learn more about this incredible vehicle and discover if the 2019 Ram 1500 is right for you.


When it comes to pickup trucks, nothing is more important than capability, and the new Ram 1500 doesn’t disappoint. The appeal of a V8 engine is obvious, but with this truck you get the added bonus of a best-in-class towing capacity of 12,750 pounds when properly equipped. No Ram 1500 has ever been as powerful as the new 2019 model.

Not only can this beast haul and tow virtually whatever you want, you can also venture off the beaten path for some off-road adventures. With the available 4×4 off-road package, you’ll be equipped with a plethora of off-roading equipment. The Elocker® Electronic Locking Rear Differential is impressive enough, but you’ll also get access to a 1-inch suspension lift complete with skid plates and tow hooks.


One of the main reasons this truck is capable of so much is its powerful engine. The new Ram 1500 sports a 5.7L HEMI® V8 with eTorque technology. Not only can you enjoy a massive 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, but you also get a supplemental 130 lb-ft of torque with improved efficiency thanks to the eTorque technology.

The Ram 1500 also has an available class exclusive feature that truly sets it apart. You can opt for the Class-Exclusive Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension system that will automatically adjust your truck’s height when driving at highway speeds to improve efficiency, decrease resistance, and provide an overall more adaptable ride.


With the Ram 1500, you’ll get all the bells and whistles you might expect including an advanced infotainment system, but this truck truly shines when you look at safety technology. The Adaptive Cruise Control feature includes Stop and Go technology that will operate all on its own just like the Forward Collision Warning. If an imminent collision is detected, the truck will jerk suddenly to alert you as if it hit the brakes for a second. Should you fail to react, this truck will apply the brakes for you to limit the damage or perhaps avoid the collision altogether.
