Redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 For Sale in Toronto, Mississauga | Ontario Chrysler
The wait is over, GTA drivers! The 2019 Ram 1500 is now available to order at Ontario Chrysler. Please contact Robbie, the New Car Manager at 905-625-8801 to reserve yours today. We serve all the Greater Toronto Area including Brampton, Hamilton, Oakville, and Barrie. You’re going to love this truck for all kinds of reasons.
Bigger cabs, lighter but stronger frames and a 360° view and, on higher trims, a 12-inch center display are new adds. Throw in automatic parking, rear cross path warnings, and a host of useful new tech toys, and you have a truck that the engineers created item by item for drivers. The Chrysler side of the company developed the mild hybrid eTorque to replace the alternator with a generator that can double as a motor. The Ram powertrain, now based on a 48-volt system, provides a notably faster stop-start as well as desirable regenerative braking. Better fuel economy and extra torque during a launch and transmission shifting are great elements to this redesign.
Check out the battery change-up: The air-cooled 330 watt-hour lithium-ion Nickel Manganese Cobalt battery is a serious plus. The generator converts power to 12 volts for accessories at the same time that it charges the battery, the conventional 12V battery, and the conventional starter, used for cold starts. This big battery is cooled down by dual fans.
Torque is added to the crankshaft by the eTorque during gear changes, reducing noise and vibrations, and adding some very nice responsiveness to the powertrain overall. The V6 engine option is liquid cooled and positioned in front of the engine; the Hemi version is air-cooled and popped in where the alternator used to be. Both engine options use two belt-tensioners with eight-rib belts. The V6 stayed steady at 305 hp and 269 pound-feet of torque, on regular 87-octane fuel. The Hemi clocks 395 hp and 410 pound-feet of torque. A Hemi without eTorque is available on lower trim levels and fleet vehicles, although V6 without eTorque. Diesel options have been promised for the 2019 but will not be available till later on in the year.
Cold-weather hauling and towing as well as quicker warm-up potential for your passengers (depending on HVAC selection) are improved by the new thermal management system that moves past using heated coolant to warm transmission fluid and engine oil and instead sends hot coolant through the rear axle lubricant on RWD trucks.
The new Ram 1500 has lost weight—about 225 pounds total since the 2018 model—giving drivers the longest, lightest, most efficient frame of any half-ton truck. That cranks the maximum payload to 2,300 pounds and gives you a maximum trailer tow of 12,700 pounds.
You can also look forward to increased stability and a noticeable reduction in noise and overall vibration. The ride is smoother thanks to a redesigned frame, along with new powertrain, air suspension and C-pillar hydraulic body-mounting technology, all of which work to provide greater comfort.
Safety enhancements during all sorts of crash situations arise from the front splayed frame rail, which creates an efficient energy-absorbing structure. The changes include frame-mounted high-steel tire blockers behind the front tires that force wheels outward on impact.
There are now three headlamps — halogen, LED, and LED with adaptive front lighting (AFS). They have up to double the brightness of past lighting. All navigation, Wi-Fi, radio and satellite tasks are handled by a shark-fin antenna; the 2019 Ram 1500 is the first full-size truck without a mast antenna. Look up, way up at the sweet new 33.3-inch by 43.4-inch panoramic sunroof to take in ten square feet of sky. The Ram 1500 comes in twelve colors, including four brand-new paints, and the first-ever Ram use of Tri-coat paint: Billet Silver, Tri-coat White, Patriot Blue, and Diamond Black Crystal.
The Ram 1500 stays tough, with Frequency Response Damping shocks working for you on all four corners; the valves adjust for the type of vertical wheel input, enhancing handling on rougher terrain. When the Ram 1500 has a slower input, common during both cornering and heavy braking, the bypass valve closes for more aggressive damping and stability. You can get in on a 4x4 Off-Road Package on almost every trim. This package includes a one-inch suspension lift, with or without the four-corner air suspension, an electronic-locking rear differential, and 32-inch tires on 18-inch (or optional 20-inch) wheels. Other details include Hill Descent Control, off-road-calibrated shocks, skid plates for the transfer case, steering, engine and gas tank, and tow hooks.
We know you and your passengers will like these design shifts: the new HVAC system has almost 25% more airflow at lower noise levels, with 50% more airflow in back. With double the competitor’s interior storage volume (151 liters, to be exact), the center console bumped from 23 to 39 liters, featuring 12 storage combos, optional wireless charging and a handy tub large enough to hold a 15 inch laptop steady. There are five USB ports in the center console (two in back for rear passengers); three of these connect with Uconnect.
