The All-New 2019 RAM 1500: Top Dog amongst Trucks

 

Pickup shoppers throughout Chicagoland are invited to test drive the all-new 2019 RAM 1500 at Fields Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM Glenview. If you thought the previous-generation RAM 1500 had exhausted all avenues in its quest for class-leading greatness, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.

Since its debut this past spring, the 2019 RAM 1500 has received a number of plaudits from leading industry players. Perhaps the most impressive prize earned by this do-everything light-duty pickup was the Cars.com 2018 Detroit Auto Show’s Best in Show award. And this truck’s other recognitions - a spot on the Wards Top 10 Interiors list and an Automotive Excellence Award from Popular Mechanics - show just how special the 2019 RAM 1500 really is.

Perhaps the biggest change found in the 2019 RAM 1500 near Chicago, IL is in its engineering. This truck is lighter than its predecessors by more than 200 lb, but it boasts a higher tow rating and increased payload capacity. The secret is the incorporation of lightweight, high-strength steel throughout the 2019 RAM 1500 model’s frame. 

Another notable new wrinkle that our Dodge dealers serving Highland Park, IL are excited about is the introduction of eTorque, a hybrid engine assist technology. It isn’t a full hybrid system, but it’s a significant achievement given its ability to store electricity in a lithium battery and then distribute it to the engine when extra power is needed. eTorque also facilitates the seamless operation of the 2019 RAM 1500 model’s automatic engine stop/start system.

The 2019 RAM 1500 is also roomier than ever and adds some very attractive infotainment offerings. Of course, what hasn’t changed is this truck’s class-leading ride quality courtesy of its two class-exclusive suspension choices.
