With the launch of RAM 1500 Limited 2019, truck lovers are getting spoilt for choice. Full-size pick up trucks are now at a next level and competing with SUVs on interior, infotainment, ride comfort and fuel economy.
Not many vehicles come up with the magnitude of upgrades in five years that RAM has delivered with the 1500 Limited in one year.
Serious re-design in the body work with stronger but lighter materials (aluminum) being used extensively to reduce the weight by over 100 kilograms. In addition, similar work has been put in the transmission and gear technology to increase fuel efficiency and improve the gear-to-speed ratio.
The new suspension is wonderful with an auto adjusting aerodynamic feature where the truck automatically adjusts its height based on vehicle speed.
As you’d have seen in the video with Atif and Tihana, parking this giant is a piece of cake. There is a 360 camera, modern safety and other convenience features that make the drive safer and more enjoyable.
Safety highlight is however, the rear cross path and trailer detection system that scans the blind spot zones behind the vehicle to help ensure safer maneuvering. It automatically senses and accounts for the length of the trailer. No other truck offers this level of advanced safety.
Engine: 5.7 Liter HEMI 8 cylinders
Horsepower: 395 Bhp
Torque: 485 Nm
Drive System: All Wheel Drive
Transmission: 8 Speed Automatic

The 2019 Ram 1500 is an ideal combination of power and class.
It is a handsome truck, commanding respect wherever it goes. I’d even go on to say that If Arnold Schwarzenegger was a truck, he would have been RAM 1500.
Special mention goes out to the sculpted hood, elaborate grille, 20-inch wheels, sleek LED head and tail lamps.
To add sense of sophistication to an already elegant truck, RAM has kept a check on the use of chrome.
From the inside, RAM 1500 Limited is too quiet and perhaps too refined for a full-size pick up truck. It’s more like a Bentley interior. High grade materials have been used throughout the cabin making it classy, comfortable and roomy.
Right underneath the push start button, you’ll find the gear rotary dial. All drive modes are conveniently placed next to the gear dial.
Driver gets a 7 inch premium display with full color, high definition, 3D graphics. Classy leather and real wood-trim accentuate the dashboard, door panels and the center console.
Leather-lined driver and front passenger seats offer 12-way power adjustment and standard heating and ventilating functions.
The second row seating is much spacious than other base models and also offers heating and ventilation. There are extra storage compartments under the rear seats and a sliding storage tray in between the driver and passenger.
The panoramic sunroof is ideal for sunny winter days or late night star gazing in the desert in the summer time.
Wireless phone charging, abundance of USB ports and an exceptional 12 inch infotainment screen connected to a 19 speaker surround system transforms the truck into something like Hard Rock Cafe.
