The 2019 Ram 1500: A Powerful Truck and the Family Car Rolled into One

November 5th, 2018 by

Often, when you look at advertisements for trucks, they’ll focus on things like their powerful engines and gritty demeanors. They’ll make them out to be vehicles that can go anywhere and do anything. Unfortunately, “everything” rarely includes the important things you’ll deal with day-to-day.

The 2019 Ram 1500 is different. While it has all the trappings of a powerful pickup truck, including options for a 395 horsepower 5.7-liter V8 engine, it’s also a safe and comfortable vehicle that can easily double as the family car – just try slotting it into comparisons like Pacifica vs. Odyssey.

How does it manage that? By delivering a selection of potential features on par with the best that sedans and SUVs have to offer. Its roomy interior can seat up to six, with the right model. It can also deliver a solid level of fuel economy and equipment tailored toward comfort, rather than just utility.

The new Ram 1500 performs so well as a family vehicle, that it’s actually received top honors at the Greater Atlanta Automotive Association’s annual Family Car Challenge.

“Our members were impressed with Ram 1500’s combination of technology, functionality, drivability and family-friendly features,” commented GAAMA president Daryl Killian. “It’s only fitting that the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 won our top overall award given how the 2019 Ram 1500 is loaded with well-thought-out features that are important to families: segment-leading fuel efficiency, impressive ride quality, clever storage solutions and a comprehensive infotainment system.”
