Ram introduces the all-new 2019 Ram Heavy Duty trucks! | McLarty Daniel CDJRF of Springdale
When it was released last year, the 2019 Ram 1500 turned the truck world on its head with a winning combination of beautiful styling, unstoppable power and capability and refinement and comfort that rivals high-end luxury SUVs. Now, the 2019 Ram 2500 and 3500 HD trucks are poised to do the same for light-duty trucks!
Just released at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the 2019 Ram HD features a bigger, burlier take on the styling of the 2019 Ram 1500, plus the incredible torque and horsepower of a next-gen heavy duty Ram drivetrain. That includes an unmatched 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque from the all-new 6.7-liter Cummins High Output Turbo Diesel!
STYLING: While the recent release of the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD shows how designers can go a bit overboard with the styling of their top-tier heavy duty trucks, the 2019 Ram HD takes is a gorgeous take on the new Ram silhouette. A bold take on the bumper and grille lead the way, accentuated by tri-lense headlamps with advanced LED and the optional adaptive front-lighting system for a confident and athletic look. Unique wheel choices and grille designs will highlight the differences between six distinct trim levels.
Inside, the 2019 Ram HD features a totally redesigned interior with premium materials and a center console with a dozen different storage configurations, assignable switches, a wireless charging dock and multiple charging ports. The Mega Cab configuration lives up to its name with more legroom than ever and the most interior storage of any full-size truck: 258 liters, which is over twice as much as the nearest runner up. Keeping things calm and quiet, meanwhile, is active noise cancellation, anti-vibration components and acoustic glass. Keeping you connected, entertained and in command is the Uconnect 4C NAV with a 12-inch fully configurable screen, including SiriusXM 360L, and an available premium audio system by Harman Kardon with 17 speakers and 750 watts of power.
PERFORMANCE AND CAPABILITY: Given Ram’s long history of setting the benchmark when it comes to heavy-duty power and torque, you knew the 2019 Ram HD was going to go big on horsepower and torque, and boy have they delivered. Standard power in the 2019 Ram HD is the legendary 6.4-liter gasoline Hemi V8, with class-leading 410 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft of torque.
For those who need the tugboat-like power and reliability only diesel can provide, the 2019 Ram HD line has a heck of a solution: the legendary Cummins Turbo Diesel, with 370 horsepower and a whopping 850 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,700 rpm, smack dab in the middle of where you need it when towing or hauling. Need even more power? Then hold on to your hat, because the 2019 Ram HD feature the optional 6.7-liter Cummins High Output Turbo Diesel! Made from cutting-edge compacted graphite iron for a block and heads that weigh 60 pounds less than the previous 6.7-liter Cummins, the new HO turbo-diesel in the 2019 Ram HD has hit the magic number of 1,000 lb.-ft of torque, and 400 horsepower thanks to incredibly robust engine internals including forged crank and connecting rods, with deep breathing provided by an all-new variable geometry turbo with laminated heat shields which can deliver up to 33 psi of boost! The result is simply the highest-ever capability for an HD pickup: 35,100 pounds of towing, and 7,680 pounds of payload. Helping the 2019 Ram HD ride as good as it looks is an all-new suspension featuring Frequency Response Damping shock, progressive rate springs and re-engineered bushings, and an exclusive rear air suspension that can be driver-tuned to lower the bed, tow a trailer, normal driving or to maximize the suspension for payload.
Putting that power to the ground is the smooth-shifting TorqueFlite Heavy Duty eight-speed auto with shift-by-wire technology. The transmission features more than 40 shift maps to optimize your drive for fuel economy, performance and towing, with shifting via a rotary dial mounted on the instrument panel. Ram put some thought into the running gear for those who need the capability of a 4×4, too, with the BorgWarner part-time transfer case, designed to handle the massive torque produced by the high output Cummins.
“Ram Heavy Duty owners constantly demand the highest levels of capability to tackle the biggest jobs and with 35,100 lbs. of towing capacity, pulled by 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque from our Cummins engine, we now hold the most important titles within the segment,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “We’ve also surrounded owners in luxury and technology that, until now, was unavailable in a heavy-duty pickup. The highest quality interiors, active safety systems and of course our award-winning Uconnect technology contribute to the best Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks we have ever built.”
