New 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Performance And Tech Features
Posted on August 13, 2020
Ram enters 2019 strong with a no-compromise pickup that exemplifies everything the brand has to offer. Just as the name implies, the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty aims to be the most capable truck on the market. Out-towing, out-hauling, and out-powering all other pickup trucks is the name of its game. And that 16,000 kg towing capability (when properly equipped) is just a sample of all the power this truck brings to the table. Can you think of anything else on the market that even comes close? If that thought alone gets you excited, just wait until you see the other performance and technology specs.
What Does Unrivaled Power Look Like?
Across the board, the Ram Heavy Duty offers 3 powerful motors for you to choose from. The base model is a 6.4-litre Hemi V8. And with 410 hp and 429 lb-ft torque, it's definitely a powerful little motor.But if you're looking for a little bit more strength under the hood, the 6.7-litre Cummins engine grants you a massive 850 lb-ft torque and 370 hp.
It's strong enough to complete all your daily tasks with ease.However, if you want the ultimate pickup truck power, then the 6.7-litre Cummins High Output Turbo Diesel is the motor for you. And at 1,000 lb-ft torque, (yes, that's 3 zeroes) you'll have no issues getting all the power you need and then some. In fact, this is the first factory pickup truck to break four-digit torque-quite the accomplishment for Ram.
The 400 horsepower of this model also ensures you'll get plenty of speed and performance with all that power. But right now, these are just numbers. To give you a better idea of the capability available to you, consider this: The towing capacity reaches as high as 15,921 kg (35,100 lbs) here. And with a payload capacity of 3,484 kg (7,680 lbs), no job is off limits. Just imagine what you could get done with a truck this capable.
Greatness Isn't Limited to Power with These Technology Features
Capability means nothing if you're not comfortable driving the pickup truck. The Ram Heavy Duty understands this and offers all the safety and driver assist features you could ever need.360-degree camera display allows you to see your surroundings from all angles. Meanwhile, the tire pressure monitoring keeps track of up to 6 wheels at once.
And when combined with the trailer tire pressure, you're looking at 12 trailer tires as well.What's also helpful is the two rearview backup cameras. The first helps you keep track of your surroundings. Meanwhile, the other camera keeps track of your payload. It's also helpful when you're aligning fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailers.
You also can't forget about that monstrous Uconnect infotainment system. With a 12-inch touchscreen, visibility and accidental touches won't be an issue. And to make matters better, you'll even get split-screen capabilities for the ultimate customization.
This means you can work with Apple CarPlay and your HVAC controls all at once.What's also nice about the interior technology features is the four different sound systems you can choose from. One of these even includes a 750-watt Harman Kardon Audio system with 17 speakers and an 8-inch subwoofer. Just imagine how bass drops sound with that.
