Powertrain and Handling for the 2019 Ram 1500


The point of owning a pickup truck isn’t just so you can own something that looks nice, although with the Ram 1500 that is never a problem. Instead, owning a truck comes down to one thing–power. Trucks, unlike most other vehicles, give you towing capabilities that allow you to do more than just off-road or commute. Owning a Ram 1500 means owning the ability to tow a camper, to have the strength to help create your own business, or even to bring your boat to the lake for the weekend. Luckily, the 2019 model of this pickup truck bumps up the power and handling even further than ever before, giving you a vehicle that you can be confident in, no matter the situation. In order to learn more about the powertrains and the handling abilities of the 2019 Ram 1500, keep reading down below!

What powertrain options come with the 2019 Ram 1500?

There are two engines that are offered with the Ram 1500. The first of these engines is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which has the capability to create 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. This engine works with wide-range variable valve timing, and a two-step variable valve lift. These technologies combined to create the very best in fuel economy and power. The other available engine is a 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which produces around 410 pound-feet of torque and 395 horsepower. The technology that comes with this engine includes Fuel Saver Technology, which is cylinder deactivation. These two engines work with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. This transmission continues to optimize the engines in order to offer the power you need, with the fuel economy to make your wallet happier.

What suspension comes with the Ram 1500?

One of the major reasons why the handling in this pickup truck is so impressive is due to the suspension. This air suspension comes with FRD shocks, and is the only full-size pickup that is even available with a 4-corner air suspension system. Load-leveling capability is another benefit of this air suspension, which allows for this system to detect load on the suspension from a payload or a trailer. Another perk is that the gas pressure increases until a normal ride height is reached, which improves the loaded ride and levels the truck. The air suspension, therefore, is one of the major benefits of this 2019 model, and cannot be overstated enough.

What are the aerodynamics of this pickup truck?

The 2019 model has been re-engineered and redesigned in order to create a more aerodynamic truck. In fact, the new exterior shape gives this pickup class-leading aerodynamics. The importance of this leads to an improvement in efficiency and fuel economy, along with handling. The bed rails specifically have been raised around 1.5-inches, and a side-step design further allows air to pass around the entire truck. If you want a truck with the perfect exterior design that enhances the entire system, then you need the 2019 Ram 1500.
