2019 Ram 1500 Sport for Sale | Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton
We Canadians like to do things a bit differently, up here. In fact, we pride ourselves on thumbing our noses at the status-quo. It’s not often other people—like our neighbours to the south—actually notice that we like to kick mediocrity to the curb, but sometimes we manage to do things that raise an eyebrow and even create a little jealousy. Case-in-point, the 2019 Ram 1500 Sport.
American 2019 Ram 1500 drivers are all aflutter over the Canadian-Market only trim. The Sport boasts a pretty fine monochromatic exterior, available in nine colors and offers a host of other goodies, leaving Americans to try—yet mostly fail—to build the Sport version out of a Laramie trim.
All those splashy colors are accentuated by a black billet bar grille with Ram lettering.The new standard bi-LED headlight frames, hood badge and side window surrounds are black, offsetting the exterior color, nicely. If you’re looking for a bolder hood, Ram offers an optional stand-out version that must be seen to be appreciated. From nose on to tail, the Ram 1500 Sport showcases a Canadian-Market only Sport badge on an all-new dampened aluminum tailgate with integrated spoiler. An integrated dual exhaust is the signature to a uniquely Canadian exterior.
Inside the cab, the Sport boasts exclusive sport cloth/premium vinyl seats with a unique ‘hex’ insert mesh fabric. Also reserved only for Canada are optional leather heated and ventilated seats with a Canadian-Market only technical embossed texture.
The 2019 Sport cruises along smoothly on standard black aluminum 20-inch wheels, or the optional 22-inch Black Noise alloys. Choice is good.
Standard on the Ram 1500 Sport is the 5.7-litre Hemi V8 for lots of chugging power. It boasts the brute-force of 395 HP and 410 lb-ft of torque with performance and fuel economy boosting technologies, including variable valve timing and cylinder deactivation.
The new generation of TorqueFlite has landed with the standard eight-speed automatic transmission, offering over 40 individual shift maps that optimize fuel efficiency and performance. You have the choice between a 4x2 and 4x4 with an on-demand transfer case in Auto, 2HI, 4HI and 4LO. Without driver intervention this operating range monitors the distribution of torque, based on driving conditions.
The Sport trim offers Quad or Crew Cabs with an all-black interior. Exclusive trim includes black satin chrome touches, real metal and a diamond-plate look on the Ram Rebel’s centre stack. The soft-wrapped instrument panel features Diesel-grey French accent stitching. The closed upper glove box proudly displays the uniquely Canadian Sport badge.
Standard on the 2019 Sport is the new reconfigurable console with space for your laptop, files and your morning cuppa-joe. Crew Cab models offer a dual sunroof, reclining rear seat and in-floor Ram bins that are five inches larger and can accommodate a four-inch drop-hitch.
The award-winning UConnect infotainment system is front and centre, featuring an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Because Ram isn’t just another pretty face, it also offers standard and optional safety technology including brake assist, hill-start assist, ready alert braking, rainy day braking, tire pressure alert, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with stop, lane departure warning, surround view camera and trailer sway control.
So, all-in-all, it’s a good day to be Canadian. Drive your pride. Pick up the exclusive 2019 Ram 1500 Sport at Ontario Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.
