The 2019 Ram 1500 has been completely redesigned to be more impressive than ever. In fact, it is such an impressive truck that the jurors at TRUCK TREND® named it the 2019 Pickup Truck of the Year. It beat out the competition after a week of intensive testing in California, establishing it as the reigning and defending king of the full-size pickup segment.
Sean Holman, Group Content Director for TRUCK TREND, said of the 2019 Ram 1500, “The new truck breaks ground in many areas and is the gold standard of what to expect in regard to comfort and technology without giving up any of the functionality or utility of a truck.”
TRUNK TREND put all the trucks through a series of demanding tests that included off-roading, hauling, towing, performance testing, and even fuel economy calculations. The jurors also spent a lot of time evaluating the interiors for things like comfort, ergonomics, build quality, and ease of use. At the end of it all, the Ram 1500 rose to the top.
One big way the Ram 1500 stands apart from the competition is with its gains in fuel efficiency. It uses a new eTorque mild hybrid system on both the V6 and V8 engine options. In addition, engineers were able to cut about 225 pounds from the Ram 1500’s curb weight, while still making sure it was strong enough to tow up to 12,750 pounds.
Awards are nice and all, but the best way to know for sure that the 2019 Ram 1500 is the right truck for you is to feel what it can do for yourself. Stop into Gossett CDJR and take one of these incredible trucks for a test drive.
