Ram's Stylish and Sophisticated New Pickup
The 2019 Ram 1500 is the most modern, luxurious and largest semi-trailer the brand has ever built. Gary Gastelu, editor-in-chief of FoxNews.com Automotive, spoke to Jim Morrison, the head of the Ram brand, and interior designer Ryan Nagode about the features they hope they will take off a bit.
The turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 will cost Ram 1500 buyers $ 4,995 more than the base V6 and $ 3,000 more than the popular Hemi V8 The price is well below that of the cheapest Chevy Silverado 1500 and Ford F-150, available for $ 45,200 and $ 46,225. That's because Ram offers its engine in all trim levels, including work trucks, while Chevy and Ford are currently reserving their diesel engines for a limited number of high-end models.
Ram also claims the light diesel trailer hitch with a top rating of 12,560 pounds, while the F-150 and Silverado can carry a maximum of 11,400 pounds and 9,300 pounds in currently available configurations.
(The diesel option is available on all Ram 1500 models, including the off-road Rebel.)
What is yet to be revealed before Ram's lorries come into the showrooms this fall is their fuel economy. For now, the best Silverado awards include up to 33 mpg on the highway.
