The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 lives up to expectations, successfully replacing the previous model that was one of the top full-size half-ton pickups around. It's still the only one to offer coil springs rather than a traditional leaf-spring suspension. As a result, it drives with real sophistication yet still offers all the utility of its rivals. Only two of the previous truck's engines have made it through to the 2019 lineup: the 305-hp 3.6-liter V6 and the 395-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V8. They're both smooth and powerful, and the V8 is particularly appealing thanks to its ample performance. They feature an eight-speed automatic, while a mild hybrid system dubbed eTorque (standard on the V6 and optional on the V8) powers an engine stop-start system to improve fuel consumption.
There's the usual choice of cab capacities and cargo beds, mated to either rear- or four-wheel drive. The trim levels cover everything from a daily work truck specification in the Tradesman right up to the Limited, which comes fully loaded with upscale equipment such as an adjustable air suspension, premium leather trim, 22-inch wheels, and high-end audio. Those wanting a more off-road-specific model should seek out the Rebel, which adds off-road tires, an electronic-locking rear axle, and other enhancements. Options include a massive 12-inch touchscreen and many driver-assist aids that are only offered as extras on upper trim levels. That's one criticism of what's otherwise a leading contender among light-duty pickup trucks.
