Drive the 2019 North America Truck of the Year: the 2019 RAM 1500

January 28th, 2019 by

The North American International Auto Show is taking place this month in Detroit. While just about every automaker is there with plenty of new and upcoming models in tow, it’s still possible for a few to stand out among the crowd. The 2019 RAM 1500 is one such vehicle. And just what sets it apart? Nothing much—just the fact that it was named the 2019 North American Truck of the Year.

This is the just the latest accolade for the formidable RAM pickup. It was unanimously voted the MotorTrend Truck of the Year, and was selected as the official Truck of Texas by the Texas Auto Writers Association. If you’re looking for the best of the best when it comes to pickup trucks, you’re looking for the 2019 RAM 1500, and you can test drive it today here at Moritz Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM.

Capability is key when it comes to the appeal of the 2019 RAM 1500. Best-in-class V8 towing capacity of 12,750 pounds and a max payload of 2,300 pounds mean that this pickup is ready for just about whatever you throw at it—or in it. This truck isn’t just built to haul, it’s built to drive, with improved aerodynamics. Thanks to an elevated hood, a new sculpted roof design, and active aerodynamic features, this pickup has the lowest frontal drag coefficient in its class.

Just what do we mean by “active aerodynamic features?” First, there’s the Class-Exclusive active front air dam, which automatically extends downward when the truck approaches 30 mph in order to reduce drag. Then, there’s the available Class-Exclusive Active-Level™ Four Corner Suspension, which automatically lowers the entire truck at highway speeds to further boost efficiency and lower drag.

The entire RAM truck lineup is characterized by impressive engineering and innovative design. Head into our dealership in Fort Worth, TX today and check out all of the new RAM trucks we have available.
