Among the landscape of powerful heavy-duty pickup trucks, many consumers will look up details like torque, horsepower, and reliability. Those customers will stand in awe of the latest Ram 3500 HD with its remarkable 1,000 lb-ft of torque. The rumors were true and now the new 2019 Ram 3500 HD is set to make owners thanks on its strength and power alone. What else does the new Ram heavy-duty pickup have to bring customers to stores? Let’s examine all the glory heading to Ram customers soon.
What’s Under the Hood?
We start with the powertrain options, including the 400 horsepower that is produced by the 6.7-Liter high-output Cummins engine, with the grand total of 1,800 RPM. This powertrain amounts to 1,000 lb-ft of torque and increases the towing capacity to 35,100 pounds with a significant payload rating that reaches best-in-class status at 7,680 pounds with the regular-cab long-box 3500 dually model, which is equipped with the 6.4-Liter gasoline HEMI V8 engine option. The 5.7-Liter V6 engine has been removed for the new 2019 Ram HD engine options. A fuel-efficient heavy-duty truck is finally here thanks to the hard work of Ram engineers, but the exact numbers haven’t been released for how it fares on city and highway miles per gallon. The interior, however, is upgraded and we know the results there.
More About The New HD Interior
The standard infotainment system comes with the 8.4-inch touchscreen, but the massive foot-long touchscreen has been added, the same one from the 2019 Ram 1500 models, as an available option. An incredible 360 degree Surround View Camera with Trailer Reverse Guidance View is another great available feature. The Limited and Laramie Longhorn models have great legroom and superior space with 43.4 inches of legroom and 100% leather seating. As far as storage goes, Ram customers who love the RamBox, they will have the available RamBox Cargo Management System, now with a 115-volt power outlet.
Better Available Safety Features For the Heavy-Duty
More great features in the way of safety and available features come with the new 2019 Ram 3500 HD, including class exclusive Adaptive Forward Lighting System, a safety feature that allows the front headlamps to swivel or rotate with the direction of the steering wheel. Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking can work even with a trailer attached. To help park in hard places, the class-exclusive ParkSense Rear Park Assist has added six sensors to make backing up or parallel parking easier than ever. Protect dually fenders and mirrors better with this new technology added to the Ram HD pickup models. Standard 5-year diesel or gas powertrain limited warranties and roadside assistance come standard as well as a rust-through limited warranty to help owners feel quite secure in their HD.
