2019 Ram 1500 Named Edmunds 2019 Best Family Truck


Every year, Edmunds' experts research and test drive more than 300 models in real-world conditions. They're ranked based on 30 categories covering performance, comfort, interior, technology, utility, and value.


For 2019, the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 captured the title of Edmunds 2019 Best Family Truck. Here's why the Ram 1500 pickup truck is the award winner, courtesy of your local Ram dealer in Bolton, ON, Caledon Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.



Edmunds' editors noted, "With reclining rear seats, class-leading legroom and an exclusive coil-spring rear suspension, the Ram 1500 outclasses many traditional SUVs in comfort and luxury." The 2019 Ram 1500 isn't only a comfortable interior. It has an exquisite ride from its four-wheel independent suspension. It's also the only pickup truck in its class with available load-leveling air ride suspension.



From real wood and leather interior details to the dual pane sunroof, the 2019 Ram 1500 has unparalleled elegance in the cabin. A reconfigurable centre console is a class-exclusive feature, as is the adjustable under-seat storage compartments.



First and foremost, the Ram 1500 has the largest-in-class 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system available. With pinch-and-zoom technology, split-screen capability, and SiriusXM with 360L, it's the top-rated system on the market today.


Also available in the high-class interior is a 7-inch Digital Cluster Display, Apple CarPlay integration, a 900-watt Harman Kardon premium audio system, and a host of active safety and ADAS systems.



Like previous Ram models, the RamBox Cargo Management System's lockable and weatherproof storage bins are available for the 2019 Ram 1500, but there's so much more. New for 2019 and a class-exclusive feature is the Multifunction Tailgate. It has 60/40 split doors that can swing wide open for easy access to the truck bed load floor, or it can drop down like a traditional tailgate. Plus, the kick-out bed stop under the rear bumper makes access to the bed easier than ever.



For outstanding fuel economy, the standard engine in the 2019 Ram 1500 is a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 305hp and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. However, best-in-class V8 performance comes from an available 5.7-liter HEMI V8 that makes 395hp and 410 lb.-ft. of torque.


What does that mean in real-life terms? It means the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds when properly equipped or carry an impressive 2,300 pounds of payload.


Also available is the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with eTorque Mild Hybrid System. Along with the same road-crushing performance, eTorque boosts fuel efficiency and adds a supplemental 130 lb.-ft. of torque. It's how the Ram 1500 obtains best-in-class V8 combined fuel economy.



No matter which of the eight trim levels you choose from the 2019 Ram 1500 lineup, you'll get wicked bang for your buck. Choose from four Uconnect systems, unique exterior appearances, three engine options, and a vast array of interior features and safety systems, all without blowing the budget.


The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is worthy of its title, Edmunds 2019 Best Family Truck. Test drive this award-winning pickup truck today when you visit Caledon Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Bolton, ON.
