Got outta Dodge with a top of the line 2019 RAM 1500.
A soon as I heard that Fremont Motors Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM in Casper, Wyoming had a 2019 RAM 1500 delivered I needed to check it out. It has been around 10 years since RAM Trucks (formerly Dodge) has redesigned the body for their half-ton pickup. In an ever competitive segment between truck brands in the industry, there’s a lot a stake when designing a completely new one.
In this video, I took Casey Grisham, a salesman from the store out for a drive to discuss some of the newest and coolest features.
It’s lighter, it’s more aerodynamic, towing capability is up and so is payload. This particular pickup that we drove is a ‘Limited’ spec which is the top level trim line. The engine in this one is the 5.7L HEMI not equipped with the eTorque system (they haven’t arrived yet). Also new on for the Limited spec trucks for 2019 is the removal of the saddle bags. Usually they would be on the back of the driver and passenger seat embellished with a buckle design. Some ornate stitching is still present though. I’m led to believe the saddle bags will still be in the Laramie Longhorn version, along with hand stamped wood branding.
