The Ram 1500 is such a workhorse pickup that it’s only ever really in competition with itself. Discover how the redesigned 2019 RAM 1500 compares to the 2018 model in Hayward, Cumberland, or Rice Lake to experience both in person today.

Ram 1500 Changes: Design

You won’t have any problem telling the 2019 Ram 1500 and 2018 Ram 1500 apart. The exterior redesign adds noticable differences like:

  • A dip in the hood power bulge.
  • A shorter grille
  • Sleeker headlights
  • A spoiler beneath the front bumper when travelling at speed to improve fuel economy and cut drag.
  • A 225-pound overall weight loss.

Performance and Capability

Both the 2019 Ram 1500 and the 2018 Ram 1500 are both available with strong engine options including:

  • 3.6L Pentastar V6: Makes up to 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque.
  • 5.7L HEMI V8: Makes up to 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque.

The 2019 Ram 1500 also utilizes an eTorque mild hybrid system to improve both performance and towing and payload capabilities. That said, the 2019 Ram 1500 is not available with its predecessor’s 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, so those preferring diesel power might want to look at used models.

Interior and Technology

The Ram’s cabin has been redesigned with a whole host of changes, including:

  • Updated Steering Wheel
  • Revised Instrument Cluster
  • New Upper Glove Box
  • New Moveable Cupholders

Those small changes add up to a big jump in convenience and style, but nothing commands more attention than the new largest-in-class 12-inch touchscreen. Whether checking directions to Hayward or changing your music during your Cumberland commute, control has never been easier.
