The 2019 Ram 1500 Review

It might come as an unexpected that the three top of the line vehicles in America a year ago were all full-measure pickups. Indeed, trucks have topped deals outlines for quite a long time. The hole in units sold isn't close, either – the 30-year deals ruler, Passage's F-150, was acquired more than twice the same number of times in 2018 as the most astounding volume traveler vehicle, Toyota's RAV4.

The reason pickups trounce their SUV and vehicle rivals is their relative flexibility. A pickup can fill the job of family hauler, work vehicle, street tripper, and everything in the middle. A car or hybrid, in the interim, is restricted by its size, arrangement, and sturdiness. And keeping in mind that traveler vehicles can improve their utility just unassumingly, trucks have demonstrated their versatility to solace and extravagance – none more so than Slam's 1500.

With the presentation of the fourth-age 1500 out of 2009, Chrysler bet that inside quality and innovation would demonstrate similarly as significant as execution. After various model year refreshes, the organization's endeavors started to yield results, outperforming the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in deals a year ago. Presently, with the presentation of a fifth-age 1500, Smash is gunning for Portage's crown.

The 2019 Smash 1500 proceeds with its battle for solace with improved ride quality, better inside materials, and class-selective advances. With the accessibility of a gentle half breed framework for both V6 and V8 powertrains, the truck additionally makes a basic productivity play. Our trial of both the standard ($37,985) and eTorque-helped ($39,435) Hemi V8 models uncovers Smash's direction of a furiously focused fragment.

Inside AND Outside Structure

The active Slam 1500 (which is as yet being sold through the 2019 model year) is an attractive truck with clean lines and an amazing position. Fortunately, while a total update, the new age doesn't disturb the old truck's check bid. Tenderly re-etched boards, more keen light marks, and a smaller, more extensive grille diminish and modernize the pickup.

These styling changes mean even low-end forms of the new 1500 are less utilitarian than previously, while upscale trims look absolute tasteful. A wide scope of wheel decisions, hues, and outside trim bundles change the truck's look significantly. Those loath to captivating chrome will need to prepare either the game or passed out appearance packs, which coordinates the 1500's front belt to its body paint.

Badging is unassuming for full-estimate trucks, with Smash explained on the grille, 5.7-liter HEMI plates on either side of the hood, and a 3D Slam symbol on the rear end. Indeed, even models furnished with the eTorque framework come up short on any subordinate identifications – a much needed development from the "half and half"- put pickups of old.

Configuration changes mean low-end adaptations of the new 1500 are less utilitarian, while upscale trims are out and out tasteful.

On the off chance that it's been some time since you looked inside a pickup lodge, the new 1500 will make them scratch your head. Aside from the commonplace feeling of room, nothing about Slam's inside structure can be contrasted with trucks from 10 years back. An etched dashboard, substantial screens, finished and delicate touch materials, and appealing seats welcome travelers into the cutting edge period. Moreover, catch formats and inside capacity arrangements, are natural and simple to get to.

A reconfigurable, very adaptable focus reassure, cell phone link the board, and formed entryway glass holders flaunt Slam's tender loving care. Perceivability out of all windows is magnificent. Front and back seats – accessible in top of the line fabric or cowhide – are agreeable and steady. Our solitary reprobation is for the individuals who intend to have full-measure grown-ups on a predictable premise: quad taxi models don't leave much legroom for back riders, so we suggest picking the group taxi design.

TECH Highlights

Smash was sufficient to offer both Enormous Horn and Laramie Longhorn forms of its new truck to give us a chance to play with standard and upscale comfort highlights. Furthermore, not to ruin the astonishment, yet even the mid-go Slam is more tech-rich than the most premium adaptations of every one of its adversaries.

Section spec Tradesman and Enormous Horn models will come outfitted with a little TFT show and 5.0-inch UConnect infotainment framework, yet the most fundamental gear bunch overhauls the middle screen to a 8.4-inch unit with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Chrysler's most recent working framework. From that point, you can upsize the TFT screen to a 7-inch unit, include double zone programmed atmosphere control, two 115V electrical plugs, a 400W inverter, warmed front seats, a warmed guiding wheel, and double USB/USB-C ports. The most astounding evaluation 1500 trims knock the middle screen to an enormous 12-inch touchscreen that is pleasantly incorporated inside the dash (not at all like some tablet-style shows).

UConnect 4 is totally splendid, with sharp illustrations, brisk info reaction, and savvy menus. At the point when controlled through the 12-inch screen, the framework can part mapping and atmosphere control/stimulation on the upper and lower half of the showcase. In spite of the massive land, the module's revive and reaction rate stays ultra fast. There are a great deal of in-house infotainment frameworks coasting around out there, however Chrysler appears to have aced the parity of visual interest and useful simplicity superior to the rest.

Accessible driver help frameworks are restricted by trim, yet in the correct appearance, the Smash 1500 is accessible with versatile voyage control, path takeoff cautioning with path keeping help, back cross-traffic alarms, a 360-degree camera, forward crash cautioning with programmed crisis braking, and vulnerable side observing.


At present, Slam offers two motor decisions in three flavors: a 3.6-liter V6 with eTorque mellow cross breed help or the vestige 5.7-liter Hemi V8 with or without eTorque. Not far off, a turbodiesel powertrain will enter the blend to match Passage's F-150 diesel.

Slam's eTorque framework is the result of a 48-volt, 0.4-kWh lithium-particle battery and DC-DC converter, which charges and works the pickup's 12-volt electrical framework. The belt-driven unit is utilized to both work the auto begin/stop framework and recharge the battery under braking. In contrast to certain mixtures, the power and torque produced is utilized as hole fill rather than supplemental execution. At the end of the day, your 1500 won't all of a sudden have sports vehicle like pushed, however it will be smoother and increasingly productive.

The 1500's lodge volume is keeping pace with unfathomably increasingly streamlined, extravagance grade cars.

Regardless of comparative task, the eTorque framework changes somewhat between the V6 and V8 powertrains. V6 models, appraised at 305 pull and 295 pound-feet of torque, source their unit from Mainland and addition 90 lb-ft of torque by means of the belt-drive. V8 units, siphoning out 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, get their electric guide from Magneti Marelli and get 130 lb-ft. Once more, these figures aren't relied over the base motor's yield.

The EPA rates the V6 eTorque engine at 20 city, 25 interstate, and 22 consolidated mpg. Including four-wheel drive drops those numbers by 1 mpg. On the low end, the 5.7-liter Hemi (without eTorque) oversees only 15 city, 21 interstate, and 17 consolidated. Finding some middle ground, eTorque Hemi models normal 19 joined mpg from a split of 17 city and 23 parkway mpg.

Our trial of both the standard Hemi and gentle cross breed variation shows productive advancement inside a gas-chugging corner of the vehicle advertise. While both powertrains highlight impalpable chamber deactivation, eTorque additionally dulls the little shock of Slam's stop/begin framework totally. We expected an unexpected change among regenerative and erosion braking for the eTorque model, however even that was quieted. Slam's eight-speed programmed transmission awes with smooth upshifts and snappy downshifts when more power is required.

One of the greatest obstacles full-measure truck creators face when engaging standard clients is giving vehicle like ride quality. Body-on-outline assembles are naturally rougher than unibody partners, however Smash has discovered a workaround. A curl spring back suspension and dynamic commotion dropping point of confinement both ride brutality and undesirable lodge clamor. The outcome is smooth driving elements and an amazingly calm inside. Without decorating, the 1500's lodge volume is comparable to inconceivably progressively streamlined, premium-grade vehicles.


Slam's long-term enemies might demonstrate purposes of shortcoming of late, however they aren't going to make the way to America's top of the line pickup simple. In spite of the fact that maturing, the 2019 Passage F-150 is as yet a forceful truck with a lot of advance. A wide scope of powertrains, including a 450-hp, 510 lb-ft twin-turbo V6 and a diesel motor useful for 25 mpg are among the truck's most grounded weapons. The well known XLT trim in Supercrew design begins at $39,420. To get into a F-150 with Passage's 5.0-liter V8, you'll have to put aside at any rate $52,390.

Chevrolet's Silverado 1500 is all-new for the 2019 model year and makes guarantee to the biggest accessible V8 of its adversaries (however not the most power). On the opposite end of the range, a 2.7-liter turbocharged 4-barrel indents 21 mpg consolidated. The Silverado scores focuses for an open lodge and smooth motors. A prominently furnished group taxi model with the 5.3-liter V8 motor begins at $42,190.

True serenity

All Smash 1500 models are secured by a three-year/36,000-mile essential packed in restricted guarantee and a five-year/60,000-mile arrangement on the motor, transmission, and drive framework. Smash will likewise tow your apparatus for nothing to the closest vendor. Guarantees are completely transferrable.

HOW DT WOULD Arrange THIS Vehicle

It's anything but difficult to flip out with choices for the 2019 Slam 1500, and not at all like a few vehicles, the additional items truly do have any kind of effect. On account of the Smash, to get the full suite of driver helps, the 12-inch show, and calfskin seating, you'll have to horse up for the Laramie release (beginning at $42,290). From that point, we'd alternative the Hemi V8 eTorque ($2,645), propelled wellbeing gathering ($1,695), and Level 2 hardware gathering ($4,595) that includes a 19-speaker Harmon Kardon sound framework, downpour detecting wipers, warmed second column of seats, and remote cell phone charging. Round it out with the game appearance pack ($2,495) for body shading coordinating guards and 20-inch wheels, and the 12-inch UConnect framework with route ($1,295). All in, our optimal Slam 1500 is a robust $55,015.

We didn't figure we could fall so hard for a pickup truck, however of course, we hadn't invested quality energy with Slam's everything new 1500. Adversaries like Passage's F-150 and Chevy's Silverado may have longer chronicles and fiercer fans, yet beside the 2019 Smash 1500, the two trucks simply feel old. The Slam isn't the most dominant, extensive, or reasonable of the cluster, yet an unassumingly prepared form tramples equals regarding ride quality, innovation, and lodge comfort.

Quite a long time ago, the idea of an excellent pickup was ludicrous. With Slam's new 1500, not exclusively is such a vehicle genuine, it's adequately standard over all trims.

Would it be advisable for you to get one?

We wholeheartedly suggest the 2019 Slam 1500 as the best light-obligation full-measure pickup on special.
