Drivers in Cassville, Mt. Union and Huntingdon can learn more about the Ram 1500 with our comprehensive model review.
The Ram 1500 can be equipped with one of two engines: a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque and a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 395 horsepower and 540 pound-feet of torque. A mild-hybrid system, known as eTorque, is also available, which adds 130 pound-feet of torque to the V8 and 90 pound-feet of torque to the V6 to increase the engine’s workload and help with low-speed acceleration. Properly equipped, the Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds.
Like the models before it, the 2019 model offers an incredibly comfortable ride quality that feels more like a luxury SUV than a pickup truck. The optional air suspension is available to improve the ride quality as well. It also handles well, maintaining its poise and body control through curves.
