Additions to the 2019 Ram 1500

The redesigned exterior of the Ram 1500 shows itself to New Lenox and Frankfort truck shoppers in a few different ways. It's nearly 225 pounds lighter than previous models while using more high-strength steel, which improves durability, towing capacity, and handling, and, even more impressive, it does this while being larger than past models, so passengers will have a more spacious cabin to relax in.

What's more, it adds a range of different features crafted with the comfort of Chicago Heights passengers in mind. There's a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, for better views, reclining seats with heating and ventilation for both rows, and an Active Noise Cancellation system that keeps outside noise out. With comfort features, a new design, and high-end cabin materials, the 2019 Ram 1500 is for hard-working drivers that need to relax on the ride home.

Performance and Engines

The 2019 Ram 1500 is revolutionary in a few ways, but one area where you'll see this innovation comes in the powertrains. There are three engine options, and two of them, a 3.6-liter V6 and 5.7-liter HEMI® V8, come with what Ram calls the eTorque system, which replaces the traditional alternator with a small electric motor to make a mild hybrid engine.

This system not only makes the engines more efficient but also improves the power because the electric motor adds up to 90 pound-feet of torque to the smaller engine and 130 pound-feet of torque to the larger one. Since this torque comes from an electric motor, Bourbonnais and Kankakee, IL haulers will feel it kick in as soon as they touch the gas, which helps when towing a trailer up a hill or from a standstill.

With this system in the V8 engine, you'll be able to tow up to 12,750 pounds and haul a payload of 2,300 pounds, which are both higher specs than past years. Plus, other available engineering features range from a Four-Corner Air Suspension, largest-in-class brakes, and a returned 8-speed automatic transmission, which combine to give drivers confident control over any drive.

Technology and Safety

Passenger convenience and protection have always been a key trait of the Ram 1500, but the new technology and safety features of the truck take those to another level. Bourbonnias truck owners have enjoyed the Uconnect® infotainment systems of Ram models, and even that receives a new generation and a more responsive touchscreen with  split-screen capability and sizes now ranging up to 12 inches, and new ultra-fast charging USB Type C ports make sure the mobile device your using with that system stays charged.

However, perhaps the smartest new features of the 2019 Ram 1500 are found in the safety suite, which now includes systems like:

  • Forward Collision Warning-Plus
  • Lane Departure Warning-Plus
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Trailer Detection
  • Ready Alert Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist
