What powertrain options come with the 2019 Ram 1500?
There are two impressive powertrain options available with the 2019 Ram 1500. The first is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which can produce 269 lb-ft of torque and 305 hp. This engine is specifically tuned for trucks and offers a wide-range variable valve timing, and a two-step variable valve lift. The other engine is a HEMI 5.7-liter V8 that can create 395 hp and 410 pound-feet of torque. There is no hesitation that can be found with turbocharged engines, and there are plenty of fuel-saving and performance-enhancing technologies, like cylinder deactivation and variable valve timing. Both of these engines work flawlessly with an 8-speed automatic transmission which gives you a wide spread of gear ratios to allow for the right range for every task imaginable! There are over forty different shift maps available to optimize the shift changes. The Ram 1500 has never been more powerful, and with an increased payload of 2,300 pounds, and a trailer tow capacity of 12,750 pounds–this truck is unstoppable.
How does the 2019 Ram 1500 help improve fuel economy?
Only a few small changes were necessary to help the Ram 1500 save more fuel! One of these additions was an Interactive Deceleration Fuel Shut Off that momentarily stops fuel flow to the engine cylinders when you are decelerating. This feature is active with the third gear and higher. Another change is the exhaust system which has been reduced in weight. Over nine-pounds were shed from the exhaust system by switching over to aluminum for the hanger brackets and optimizing the thickness of the pipes in the exhaust. There was also a forward-facing air intake that was placed behind the grille to feed cool air into the intake system of both engines. The intake system has a hydrocarbon absorption filter that reduces evaporative emissions. These few simple changes have made a world of a difference when it comes to fuel economy, and thus, saves you money!
What safety features come with the Ram 1500?
Safety is a top priority for Ram, and the 2019 Ram 1500.
