Need a half-ton truck capable of best-in-class towing? The team at Ram has obvious been listening. The 2019 Ram 1500 performance seems to meet all possible requirements by offering:

The 2019 Ram 1500 returns carrying the same engines as the previous model:

  • 5.7L HEMI V8: Makes up to 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque.

However, there’s a difference. The latest lineup takes advantage of an eTorque mild hybrid system.

Just one reason that the 2019 Ram 1500 mpg ratings are so impressive.
