New 2019 RAM 3500
The New 2019 RAM 3500 is RAM’s latest addition to its lineup of Heavy Duty pickup trucks. And they have taken the words 'Heavy Duty' quite seriously with this one. RAM has upgraded almost everything, from the engine to the exteriors, to give this truck some of the best features and performance. The New 2019 RAM 3500 boasts the leading towing capacity in its category. Let’s have a look at the other key features of the New 2019 RAM 3500.
Key features The base engine of the New 2019 RAM 3500 is a 6.4-liter V-8 engine producing 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. It is combined with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission and this the only gasoline option available. There are also two options available for a 6.7-liter engine. The base variant of the 6.7-liter engine produces 410 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque. The other variant, which is the talk of the town currently, produces 400 hp and a huge 1000 lb-ft of torque. Both these engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is not usually a favorable factor for such heavy-duty vehicles since the body weight of these trucks itself accounts for more fuel consumption. The EPA does not even give estimates for heavy-duty vehicles. Yet, some reviewers have found that the New 2019 RAM 3500 gives a decent 12 mpg combined. There have been modifications in the design as well. Nearly 98.5% of the body frame is made up of high strength steel. The old steel hood has been replaced by aluminum, thereby reducing the weight by about 25 pounds. The Ram 3500 has plush interiors with heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, supple leather covers and plenty of headroom and leg space. It also comes with driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and emergency braking. The infotainment system of the New 2019 RAM 3500 has a 5-inch touchscreen as standard on lower trims and an optional 8.4-inch display with RAM's Uconnect infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard with all trims along with a number of other features. Planning to buy the New 2019 RAM 3500 in Charlotte? Get in touch with us soon.
