My take on the 2019 Ram 1500

Ram - My take on the 2019 Ram 1500 - Ask Car Throttle

Hi everyone, and it’s not like me to write reviews on trucks, but I’m going to take a shot at it.
The 2019 Dodge Ram 1500, is what a typical American expects to see in a new truck rolling off the assembly line. It has nice leather bucket seats, (the one I drove was a Lammarie edition) and up front in the engine department, for who those people who have been following Dodge for a while, you will recognize the 5.9L Hemi V8 under the hood of the Ram. The seating position is a nice one, with a good view over the hood so you can judge the corners on the front end well enough to know if you are in a parking space or not. The seating position give the driver confidence, (I am 5 feet and 11 inches tall) so I could see where I am going. The suspension. It’s actually really interesting because the last generation of Ram trucks has the airbag suspension, that has also found its way into Jeep Grand Cherokee. And the ride quality is absolutely superb from that I expected from a truck. It rides like a dream when it’s solo, but when it’s loaded, it still rides nice, but you can tell that something is back there. The interior is a little more than what I expected, it has almost a luxury car feel to it. The nice 8.4 inch touchscreen display is great, but can be slow at times. In the coming year, Dodge is expected to have a mild hybrid system on the Ram. But the question is: Would I buy it? I would actually say yes.

Thank you all for reading. Let me know what you think.
