This new design has resulted in the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 being recognized as the most capable vehicle in its class. The 2019 Ram 1500 for sale in Kansas City near Gladstone, MO lives up to the reputation of being able to handle any towing burden with its strength and remarkable power.

Best-in-Class V8 Engine Towing

The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 has been voted as having the best towing capabilities in its class. This new model can tow an astonishing 12,750 pounds so it can handle any towing job that is required of it.

eTorque Hybrid Technology

A 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with eTorque Hybrid Technology is available, built to handle heavy towing loads. This year, the engine tuning adds five horsepower and improves efficiency by an impressive 1.8%. The eTorque system replaces the traditional alternator with a battery-powered 48-volt belt-driven generator. This enhancement improves the 2019 Ram 1500's performance, payload capacity, towing capacity, and efficiency. It also raises the truck's drivability.

The 5.7L HEMI V8 engine uses state-of-the-art fuel-saving technology with variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation, allowing for better fuel economy without compromising towing capabilities. The eTorque Hybrid technology helps the truck to drive better without driving costs up. This next generation technology offers exceptional performance by delivering optimum shift changes results for better efficiency.

Improved Efficiency

The additional horsepower increases the performance and the extra torque takes the 2019 Ram 1500's capabilities to a whole new level. Although both horsepower and torque play an important part in the truck's performance, torque is what is most important for most use cases. The extra torque increases the towing capacity while the extra horsepower allows the 2019 Ram 1500 to go faster. The two combined set the stage for unmatched top performance.

The eTorque Hybrid system technology and the extra horsepower together provide excellent unsurpassed towing capabilities, earning the 2019 Ram its status as the best in class for towing.

When the 2019 Ram 1500's standard 3.6L engine is combined with the eTorque Hybrid system technology, the truck delivers optimum performance with 260 pounds per foot of torque and 305 horsepower. Although not as powerful as the 5.7 L HEMI V8 engine, this engine still delivers excellent towing capabilities and is equipped to handle heavy loads and get the job done.

The 5.7L HEMI V8 enhances the 2019 Ram 1500's performance by increasing the torque to 410 pounds per foot of torque and boosting the horsepower to 395. The new fuel-saving technology works to deactivate four of the 2019 Ram 1500's eight cylinders when maximum power is not needed, thereby saving gas. This technology is designed for instances when towing capacity is not important such as during highway cruising and everyday driving without towing.

Also, the Deactivation Fuel Shutoff feature further enhances the fuel economy of the 2019 Ram 1500 by pausing the flow of fuel when the truck is decelerating or coming to a stop. This technology will detect when a car is coasting downhill and pause the flow of fuel to the engine.

High Strength Steel Frame

The 2019 Ram 1500's frame is made of high strength steel that increases and enhances the engine's durability and stiffness. 98% of the steel used in the frame has extra-high endurance. This steel is lighter than other steel frames used in average heavy-duty trucks and allows for a weight reduction that helps with fuel efficiency and increases the overall efficiency of the truck.

This newly designed and upgraded frame increases stability and yield strength without diminishing the truck's strength or durability. The lighter frame also reduces vibration and harshness for a smoother ride and reduces the noise level present during towing.

The increased stiffness along with the enhanced durability makes the 2019 Ram 1500 perfect for hauling jobs that require a high degree of power. The high strength steel frame is highly beneficial in making the 2019 Ram 1500 lighter but stronger in towing capacity, performance, and efficiency while increasing the truck's stability and yield strength, making it the best in its class of heavy-duty trucks for towing.

2300-Pound Payload Capacity

The 2019 Ram 1500 has an improved payload capacity, which contributes to the truck's hauling capabilities, making it stand out among others in its class. The extra payload capacity means an increase in the amount of cargo that the truck can carry. The enhanced payload capacity allows for more cargo to be hauled in the truck bed.

Active Air Dam

The 2019 Dodge 1500 has class-exclusive Active Air Dam technology that is designed to help improve and enhance the truck's performance and efficiency. The system automatically extends downward by 2.5 inches when towing. This technology helps to reduce the truck's drag and improves its towing capability and efficiency. This technology comes standard with systems that do not have the available air suspension. This technology is crucial for the 2019 Ram's engine cooling. Ultimately, a cooler engine combined with less drag delivers excellent performance and towing capacity while also saving on fuel by maximizing fuel economy.

The Active Dam technology and eTorque Hybrid System technology work together to give the 2019 Dodge 1500 more power, more hauling performance, less drag, and better fuel efficiency.

The 2019 Dodge 1500 has been redesigned to result in the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 being recognized as the most versatile Ram in the entire Ram lineup.
