The Ram 1500 was completely redesigned for 2019 and it shows! Highlights include bold new grilles, a more rigid structure, lighter weight and heavily revised suspensions. Quad Cab and Crew Cab models are available (dominated by a new 12-inch touchscreen inside), as are some trim levels of the previous-generation 1500. A key upgrade under the hood is the eTorque mild hybrid system, included with the 305-hp V6 and available on the 395-hp HEMI V8. Max towing is 12,700 pounds.
